“Great Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2013

We chose the hotel after reading previous reviews and were not disappointed. The location is superb - close enough to walk to the sites whilst not being in a very busy area. We stayed in the Family Suite which was two adjoining rooms with a small lounge section in between. Perfect for us and our two young children. The views from the rooms are incredible. Rooms were clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was great. You have to pay extra for a cooked breakfast but there was enough choice from the buffet that this wasn't necessary. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Family Suite is great for families.

Location is great. Very close to water taxi stop, on main canal. Out of the "fray", while being an easy walk to main destinations- St. Marks, Opera House, etc. We booked a junior suite, and while a bit small- only one armchair (in addition to the straight one at the desk)- it was charming and very clean. Had the feel of a luxury cabin on a boat. Bathroom also small, but elegant with travertine. The concierge staff (we dealt with 3 separate individuals) could not have been more accomodating, professional, and friendly. Very impressive.
Now for the negatives: The bed was truly uncomfortable,as in it affected our sleep. We spent 2+ weeks in Italy, some beds better than others- but this one really approched ridiculous- think mattress from summer camp. The second issue was the breakfast- continental (basket of bread). I have a gluten allergy- and was prepared to pay addtional for other options, i.e. eggs and bacon. They were out of bacon, and I can't be sure- but eggs had the appearance taste, and consitency of the powdered variety.Only sub par breakfast we had our entire trip. I feel the negatives could be easily addressed, as this is an otherwise very nice hotel, in an excellant location.

Room Tip: Choose a canal side room- the higher the better- docked boats can interfere with view from rooms on...

Ideal location, excellent service, unique décor. Hotel Bucintoro was the ideal choice for a first-time stay in Venice. Charming Castello district off the regular tourist path with lagoon views. A lovely experience.

We had a great stay in this hotel, it was just what we were looking for. We read all the reviews and looked at all the pictures. This was just as described. Hotel has wonderful views of the Lagoon. We were leaving on a Seabourn cruise in two days and we watched the ship come in from our window. What a thrill. Easy location for all the sights. The staff is wonderful. Stefano was very helpful, answered all our questions, found bank atms, made dinner reservations for us and ordered water taxis. The room was just as described. The breakfast was great. We will stay here again.

I loved my stay this hotel! The staff was just amazing and so helpful! The location was convenient to everything and I enjoyed the fact that it was a bit away from all the crowds in and around St. Marks Square The view from our room was gorgeous - made for a nice way to start the morning. I would highly recommend this small hotel!

Our second visit to Hotel Bucintoro and again it did not disappoint!
The rooms done in a nautical theme are cosy with a comfortable bed and well appointed bathroom clad in marble and chrome. All necessities are provided including good closet space and a safe. The buffet breakfast provided is ample and varied and the staff are only too willing to please. The front desk staff are very helpful and prepared to offer restaurant suggestions and arrange transportation if needed. All the staff in the hotel are quick to offer a "Buon Giorno" as you pass them in the hall!
For us, what really sets Hotel Bucintoro apart is the location. Close to vaporetto stops to access various sights including the Lagoon islands, quick walk to Piazza San Marco and yet far away from the crowds. After braving the tourist mob in Rialto or San Marco it is a supreme pleasure to wander back to our refuge in the Castello and connect with Venice residents on the Via Garibaldi in one of the local restaurants. Another plus is the lovely park a short walk away.
Next trip to Venice will find us enjoying a Spritz in the bar at Hotel Bucintoro!

Room Tip: The Corner rooms on all floors offer beautiful views of both the Lagoon, San Giorgio and Piazza San...

The hotel was wonderful! All the reviews I had read on TripAdvisor were right on target. This is a lovely, small hotel away from the mobs of tourists yet very convenient to all either on foot or by vaporetto. The staff was extremely helpful and breakfast was a delight. All rooms have a fantastic view of the canal and landmarks.
Would definitely stay there again if I return to Venice!
