“Ideal Location :-)”
Reviewed 6 July 2013

This was picked as part of a package with BA and the location was ideal. There were several you could choose from the package and it was location that was important and having that choice is very good. The hotel is very friendly with the atmosphere that we wanted, calm, slow, easy going, internet access, simple continental breakfast and within the style you can imagine for Venice.

The staff were very helpful and they even booked a table for me at a recommended restaurant which made life easy. The stairs to the rooms on the first floor are a bit "quirky" an amazingly lean to the left as you ascend, (to the right as you descend), weird feeling, but they are safe don't get me wrong?

It is 100m to a neat little open square at the end of the Fondamenta Gherardini where there are several little restaurants and cafe that give way for you to relax. Exactly what Venice is for eh?

Happy customer :-)

Room Tip: Ground or First Floors are better, and north facing?

A comfortable hotel in a charming building, in a great location in Dorsoduro--an easy 5 minutes' walk to the Ca' Rezzonico vaporetto [= water bus] stop. Comfortable rooms, quiet, very good service, breakfast (included) is a bit more substantial than often found in Italy. Easy to reach from train station or airport by public transport (bus and vaporetto from airport; vaporetto from train station).

About 15 to 20 minutes walk from the bus station, which is where we arrived from the airport. Given the only taxis in Venice are very expensive water taxis this is a bonus. (By water taxi it is 100 euros from the airport and from the bus station it would have been 60 euro. The city bus is 11 euro return from the airport.)

Our two rooms were not big but clean and pleasant. Staff very friendly, breakfast reasonable.

The hotel is five minutes walk from the Acadamia art gallery and from there it is another 10 minutes walk over the Grand Canal and on to St. Marks square. A water bus stop is less than 5 minutes away which is useful too. The restaurants in the immediate area were good and attract locals and tourists, as it is a little bit away from St Marks area which is very over priced.

This hotel is in a great location. The hotel itself and the breakfast was okay. I would not recommend room 302 if you have allergies ... the wall is covered in fabric and it is extremely dusty. We left the windows open during the day to have it air out. They didn't have a shower curtain in the room the first night we showered so it was messy and the bathroom was odd... when you stepped in the shower your head could almost touch the ceiling. These things were no big deal but the women who worked at the front desk and helped with breakfast were all very nasty and some wouldn't even acknowledge you or say hi back when you greeted them. Total turn off..

I travelled with my dragon boat team, Dubai Sea Dragons to participate in the Venice Vogalonga. We chose the hotel as it was in a residential area but close to great restaurants and all the sights and could accommodate 21 guests. We found the staff to be very helpful and accommodating especially when we asked for a very early breakfast at 6am before the Vogalonga on Sunday 19th May. They coped with out requests and sometimes noisy behaviour and even asked us back for next year. A totally charming 14th century Venetian hotel, I will certainly go back.

Dorsoduro is the place to stay in Venice. It is not clogged with tourists, has several wonderful piazzas and the streets are wider than in San Marco. Hotel Pausania could use a little sprucing up but it is really charming and atmospheric with a reasonable price (for Venice)
