“Perfect location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

I booked this hotel literally the day before my departure and I wasn't disappointed, I e-mailed the hotel about arranging transport from the airport to the hotel, which they said they could arrange no problem, as I was busy doing some last minute packing I didn't confirm, I remembered the morning of my journey so quickly sent an e-mail with my flight details and left for the airport, not really knowing weather it was still possible at such short notice, again we weren't disappointed, upon arrival there was a lovely lady waiting with our name to take us straight to our carriage. Short journey by car to the grand canal where a guy was waiting in a lovely little speed boat. Staff are very helpful and friendly, our room was spacious and clean, very comfortable, can't wait to go back.

Room was very well decorated and quite well proportioned for a hotel room. Bathroom was larger than expected. We had continental breakfast which was well stocked and fresh. Staff were always very friendly and recommended placed to visit and eat. Seemed to be very central as only a few minutes walk to either st marks square or Rialto bridge

Stayed at this hotel at the beginning of June. The staff are lovely, welcoming & friendly and did everything possible to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. The rooms were well appointed, quirky with original beams and features and had marvellous views overlooking the red rooftops of venice, not something you see everyday. Breakfast was a relaxed affair, but we were well atteneded to, and there was a great choice of food to kick start the day. The hotel is steeped in history and set in a quiet comminity in within close proximity to St Marks square and Rialto. Being collected by private taxi from the hotels back door, was a very unique and fun experience and allowed us to see more of venices heritage as we made our way through the back canals. Great hotel and location, look forward to my next visit.

I stayed here after 2 nights at Bosco Bellini on the other side of Venice,and am so glad I did!
We had only been booked into a basic room but after staying at BB this was heaven.
The area is so quiet.The walls are a little thin though,I could hear my neighbours.
It was lovely to experience a quieter area of Venice and to leave via water taxi so apt.

Room Tip: I would book a room higher than standard next time, and on a high floor

Got the water taxi straight from the train station to the hotel, that in itself was an amazing way to start our Venice leg of our Italy holiday. The palace is exactly how you would want it to be. Staff were amazing. The room had frescos on the ceiling which were very beautiful! The concierge was an amazing guy, organised restaurants and one of the highlights of our stay an hour touring the canals in a motorised long boat with champagne! Would highly recommend this hotel for location, service and affordability. Def 5 stars in my book!

We stayed for a 30th birthday and had a wonderful stay.
Service from the team was excellent: 5 star. The location was excellent. Very central for the major tourist areas but also close to the less touristy, more interesting areas. The only bits to improve on for 'excellent' are a slightly wider range for breakfast and more of a bar area in the hotel. Our room was a small standard room on the 1st floor: no sunlight or views but still a lovely stay.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

To arrive at the front door of a 600-year old palace by water-taxi makes a romantic start to any visit to Venice. We came to fulfill a longstanding ambition to go to an opera at La Fenice, and this was an ideal hotel for that, being only a couple of minutes away from the theatre. Its 38 rooms apparently retain frescoes from its previous life, but we traded these for a room on the sixth floor (one beyond the lift’s range), where we had exposed beams and wonderful views over the rooftops; it’s not often that one can take a shower while admiring the Campanile of San Marco. Our only complaint about the room is that the flimsy plastic beakers provided for drinks are a real let-down and feel totally out of place! A perfectly adequate continental-style breakfast is serviced by extremely efficient staff; and, as many others have noted, the hotel is in a perfect location – only a 5-10 minute walk to San Marco and many other architectural wonders. A couple of practicalities. We found an excellent place nearby to have dinner in a lovely garden: see our review of VinoVino. And to reach the Duodo Palace from the airport, you can have a transfer arranged for €140, or for €15 (per person) take the vaporetto/water-bus direct to San Marco Giardinetti from which it is a 10-minute fairly straightforward walk (make for Teatro La Fenice).
