“great location, friendly staff”
Reviewed 23 October 2013 via mobile

My girlfriend and I very much enjoyed our stay at Palazzo Guardi. Although located in a very small street, it was easy to find and very centrally located. The staff was very friendly and gave a lot of tips on Venice. Rooms were comfortable and the hotel itself was very quiet. Very much recommended if you are in Venice for a few nights!

Although on the Dorsoduro, it is just a few steps from the Accademia bridge. That makes it convenient for vaporetto stops on either side of the Grand Canal and it's a lovely walk to the St Mark's area or up to Rialto. Better value than staying closer to St Mark's Square.

We stayed in one of the larger rooms and found out that it was in a nearby annex. It turned out to be on the second floor directly above the Taverna San Trovaso where we had just had an excellent lunch - even had Prosecco as vino della casa!

Location is also convenient for the Zattere vaporetto stop if you want to go to the railway station, bus terminus or car park without going up the Grand Canal.

Room & en-suite were spacious and clean. We had a view to the street and a small canal yet it was quiet enough at night which can be a problem in Venice. Breakfast was pleasant though slightly limited but at least it was in the same building we were staying in.

Nearby restaurants were on Zattere or at the other side of the bridge where we also went to a Vivaldi concert in the Chiesa di San Vidal.

Room Tip: Ask about the larger rooms. We were in "Tintoretto" which had a window looking down the c...

Just stayed here in mid September. We were treated so horribly upon arrival that we should have just canceled our reservation on the spot. I confirm that we had extremely spotty internet to the point that they might as well not have it at all. Our mattress desperately needed replacement- literally was sunken in in spots - slept terribly. Bed linens appeared dirty. When i phoned the staff that night, nobody answered so we just had to deal with it. The only good things were the price and location (off the beaten path but still easy to find). Switched to a new hotel after the first night.

I wish I had felt more healthy when I arrived in Venice. My friend Sue and I had just finished a wonderful cruise, but I had been nursing a sore throat and headache for 24 hours, and after struggling through the crowd of confused arriving passengers at the cruise terminal, I was a mess. Thank heaven we had good directions from Palazzo Guardi!

And thank heaven that's where we chose to land for the next four days. Irene took charge of our luggage, gave us coffee and pastries, got us up and running on wifi, and provided maps and tourist advice. When our room was ready, my number one priority--a comfortable bed in a quiet room-- was satisfied. I barely moved for the rest of the day. Sue, on the other hand, found that we were beautifully located for seeing the sights. She made forays out to the Grand Canal, the Academmia, shops, a delightful ristorante, and the farmacia for me.

After that rocky beginning, the rest of the stay went smoothly. For all the reasons named by previous reviewers, Palazzo Guardi makes an ideal base of operations for visiting Venice. The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff was superb. They even helped Sue ship a box home.

We stayed one night here and had a great experience. The staff was very welcoming.
It is a short walk to the vaperetto stops. The hotel is quiet at night. The room was large and clean.
Breakfast a bit weak for Italy; no cappuccino, just air pot coffee.
All in all a good value for one of the most expensive cities in the world.

Room Tip: They only have a few on a tiny canal.

Where else can you get a private balcony in Venezia?
Our favourite hotel in Venezia. Friendly staff - or better said: friends as staff. You feel like a member of the "family" not only as a customer. Most customers are visiting this hotel since years, as we do. You will find the small family hotel just behind the "Gallerie dell' Accademia". From the breakfast room you can see the "Squero San Trovaso", one of the last builders of the "Gondola".

Room Tip: Special rooms are with view to the San Trovaso channel and the ONE upper suite with the roof balcony...
