We went to Venice during the middle of Carnavale. Compared to the prices of other places we had considered staying, Bucintoro had a very favorable rate so we went for it. I was a little apprehensive because the pics looked so good that I was thinking maybe there was a catch. In all honesty, it's one of the few hotels that looks better in real life than the pics on the internet. Aside from the charming mahogany-trimmed rooms and the wonderful view we had, the location was superb -- a 5 minute walk from St. Mark's square, but not in the center of tourist mayhem. We were delighted that the area in the opposite direction of St. Mark's seemed very non-touristy by comparison, and found a good restaurant in this area favored by locals that was about a two minute walk from the hotel. The staff at Bucintoro was super-friendly as well, so we were 100% pleased with this place.
