We stayed at the Bucintoro for 3 nights at the end of November as a weekend break for my partner's birthday. Before we travelled, I was in regular contact with them to ensure my partner's dietary requirements were catered for (Coeliacs disease) and to arrange a bottle of prosecco to be on ice in our room for his birthday and they did not fail! As soon as we walked into this small hotel, the only word we could use was "Wow!". Extremely friendly, accommodating and very helpful staff. The room was immaculate, very well equipped and beautifully presented. Tea and coffee making facilities were in the room, which was a bit of a novelty as previous European breaks we have been on to Paris & Barcelona did not! Breakfast was continental buffet and came in abundance! Speciality bread and muesli was provided for my partner and nothing was too much trouble for the lady (apologies we didnt get her name) who prepared, presented and catered for us a breakfast.
Located overlooking the lagoon and just a few minutes walk away from the hustle and bustle of the main sights, it is close to the public transport (around a 2 minute walk) and approx 10 minute walk away from St Mark's Square.
We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Venice.
As a side note, and nothing at all to do with the hotel, anyone needing to follow a gluten free diet (coeliacs) may struggle to find somewhere to eat! We had a tough time and ended up buying biscuits from the local shop and sourcing the only McDonalds in the city for the chips! We found one restaurant which advertised GF pasta but the basic accompaniments (bolognese) was not gluten free and did not find anywhere that had gluten free pizza.
