We stayed here in August-not the best time to visit Venice as it is really really hot but the hotel was a welcome oasis in a quiet area of the town. The hotel is situated 5 mins from both the train and bus stations and about a 20 min walk from St Mark's Square so well away from the masses of tourists which is a good thing. The staff could not have been more helpful and were very attentive, they helped us find restaurants, catered to my gluten free diet at breakfast and also arranged a transfer from the airport for us with a driver who then helped us to the hotel with our bags. The rooms are lovely, individually decorated, immaculately clean, air-conditioned with Nespresso makers and a fridge. The decor is in keeping with the period feel of the hotel but with a modern twist. Our first room overlooked the canal which was lovely and our second room (our choice to move before we arrived to sample another room) had a small private balcony that you could sit on to soak up some sun. The hotel has a small dining area where every evening around 6 they lay out some complimentary local snacks and serve drinks at the bar, breakfast is lovely, plentiful, tasty and can be enjoyed in the small garden at the back of the hotel (or inside). You would be well advised to book with breakfast as it really is good value. We were very lucky in finding this hotel and would definitely go back, I can see why is is no 1 on Tripadvisor (and we did get the chance to compare with the Hilton Molino Stucky-ours was better). Things to avoid in Venice-the water taxis 65Euro no matter where you want to go so really not a good deal-better to walk and soak up the atmosphere. Thanks for a great stay.

Room Tip: the hotel has named all of its rooms individually and you can book the exact one that you want, phot...

We were really impressed when we arrived early in the day here and were offered cappuccino while they checked us in (and delicious snacks). When we returned later our bags were already in our room for us. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly - giving great restaurant recommendations (do take their advice!) and the rooms are clean attractive and comfortable.

My 3 night stay in venice was made perfect by the choice of this hotel. Good sized room overlooking the canal, double glazed windows, beautiful room, comfortable bed and the best bathroom in all of Italy!
There was a lovely garden area to relax with friends in between eating, shopping and sightseeing. Staff were friendly and helpful at all times and went out of their way to make my visit memorable.

Room Tip: Spend the extra for a canal view room, it will be worth it and remember, the best bathroom I saw in...

Wonderful hotel that is close to the train station yet away from the crowds. Front desk staff was outstanding. They recommended great restaurants and activities. We really enjoyed our long weekend in Venice.

Room Tip: We had three rooms and they were all great! Very different decor but all large and nice.

There's nothing wrong with Hotel Moresco. It's small but clean, conveniently located, reasonably priced for Venice, and staff was...competent. However, there's nothing at all special, nor exceptional, about it either. We had a room on the first floor. There were two windows in the room, both located near the ceiling so that we couldn't see anything out of it, except the sky. Sort of like a Hobbit hole. The room was spacious, but the way the windows were situated made it a bit claustrophobic. The breakfast was...ok. The staff was...ok. Our overall experience here was...ok. Number 1 hotel in Venice? I really don't think so. It's just...ok...that's all. Nothing to really complain nor complement about.

Room Tip: Try to get a room in the upper floor so that you can actually see out the window.

We stayed for our first honeymoon night and the Hotel Moresco was everything the reviews said. The room was excellent, great view to the canal and very good breakfast! The attention was great and we got a champagne bottle as well!
