“Wonderful small hotel”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

This hotel was a delight. The service from the minute we arrived was super. The staff warm and welcoming. The rooim was well appointed and good sized. Breakfast was excellent. Nice late afternoon cocktails (charge for drinks but none for food). Pleasant small garden in back. Right on canal so water taxi can come right to the door. Quiet neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle of the San Marco area. Five minute walk to Vaporeto (bus station stop)

We have been to Venice three times, and Hotel Moresco is definitely the best hotel we have stayed in there. It's location is walking distance to Rialto and St Mark's square, but out of the way of all the activity that goes on in Venice. The hotel is exquisitely furnished, offers an excellent breakfast and a great happy hour with terrific snacks to accompany drinks. There is a lovely garden where one can have breakfast, sit in to enjoy, or have drinks in. Our room was excellent, clean and very comfortable. The staff are outstanding. We would definitely stay here again, if visiting Venice. A tip - we bought a three day ferry ticket which assisted getting around Venice, out to Murano, and to Lido.

We were 2 of us, for our birthday of couple and stayed 4 nights
We chose the large suite at the last floor
This hotel is jus ideal :
personnel is professional and very kind, they speak multiple langages
Room was well furnished, with good decoration, very quiet
Bed is just fantastic !!!
Bathroom is equipped with a nice spa, walls are covered by marble everywhere
Breakfast is very varied and complete, we use it actually as brunch
This hotel is well located, close to everything but far enough to appreciate quiet and silence.
In a nutshell, do not hesitate one second....
For sure if we hâve opportunity to come back to Venice, it will ne Moresco à gain !!!

Room Tip: Take the suite

We've always preferred small boutique hotels to the large luxurious 5 Stars and Hotel Moresco reinforced the wisdom of this preference. My husband and I recently enjoyed three nights in Venice. The hotel is well located. We had a canal view room for two, which was spacious. The outdoor garden where they serve breakfast is beautiful. Sumptuous breakfast is also set up inside and, among other offerings, they feature an entire honeycomb! Coffee drinks and specialty eggs are vailable on order, The friendly hotel staff helped us make dinner reservations each evening (typically walking distance if one doesn't mind a brisk walk in Dorsoduro) and they helped with our departure to the airport via water taxi. Hotel Moresco has a nice happy hour with free food (prosiutto and melone and more) and for pay drinks. One of the bartenders in particular enjoyed introducing the (mostly but not entirely) American guests to the Aperol Spritz. If I get to return to Venice, I can't think of a place I'd rather stay. My understanding is that all rooms are lovely and the only advice is to book early.

Room Tip: My understanding is there's no bad room. Just book early to get one.

To be honest, I cannot expand on the review done by Dennis C. Absolutely everything he said was true, in fact I think we probably stayed in the same beautiful room with a view of the Rio Nuovo Canal. All the staff at Hotel Moresco are smiling, helpful and professional. Lorenzo has to be experienced to be believed! He appears extremely happy in his work and exudes warmth and smiles - truly an amazing asset for this hotel. The breakfast as mentioned in other reviews was first class. A huge selection of beautifully presented food, served in a cosy, welcoming room with gorgeous decor. The location is superb, close to central transport hub (but not at all noisy) and a 20 minute (30 if you get lost) walk to San Marco.
Would definitely choose to stay here again when we return to our favourite city!

Room Tip: Spend the extra for a canal view room - for once the internet pictures aren't as good as the rea...

We arrived in Venice in the rain, but were immediately warmed with great service and hospitality at this hotel. We were ushered in and given hot coffee and cookies at the Hotel Moresco. The rooms are lovely, the service wonderful. I am still yearning for the antipasto (free) in the garden with our evening glass of wine. Everything was so well thought out, and great quality. The hotel is set in a great area of Venice - walkable to everywhere, but far from the crowds. We also enjoyed many of the restaurants that the staff recommended. The breakfasts were also delicious.

Room Tip: Our 2nd floor room was quiet.

This hotel is really lovely. Small but lovely. Our room for three (including our 12 year old daughter) was a really decent size for venice. We were made to feel very welcome and the air-conditioning worked!! We had drinks in the bar which was very relaxing before going out to a little restaurant on a side street. I am trying to convince my friend to go back for a visit with me!
