“Our Romantic Break in Venice”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

We booked this hotel through 'Avios', so it was obviously good value to us. We stayed in a double room which was adjacent to the restaurant on the ground floor. The room was clean, compact and pleasant although not much of a view. The buffet breakfast (which is the only meal provided) is more than adequate to set you up for the day. Whilst the hotel is close to San Zaccharia the narrow winding streets still make it difficult to find so ensure you have good directions in advance of your trip. When we arrived at about 11pm we found the hotel more by good luck than good management. Unfortunately the hotel did not have our reservation but were more than helpful in providing a room and sorting everything out the following morning. One addition to be aware of is the Venice City Tax of €2.50 per person per night which will be on top of your room rate.

Make use of the 'Valporetta' (water buses), they are good value for money particularly if you get a 48 or 72 hour pass for unlimited travel from the first validation of your ticket. Go on Line 1 from San Zaccharia along the length of the 'Grand Canal' to Piazza del Roma and back for the best views in town. Also take Line 4.1 to Murano to see glass blowing and a quieter time than Venice and call off at Burano (for lace making) on the way back. Don't forget to take in a 'gondola ride', they are expensive as a couple but you can reduce the cost by taking a Gondola Tour with another four persons.

Remember it is very expensive around St Marks Square for both drinks and food but go a few streets back and it is cheaper without any reduction in quality. When walking around it can be very confusing so just follow the 'yellow' signs on the walls to reach well known landmarks such as St Marks, the Rialto Bridge etc.

Just stroll, take in the atmosphere and enjoy a very special location.

We stayed ther with our 8 Year old son for 2 days in May 2013. Hotel is at very good location in San Marco Square. Five minute walk to square and five minute walk from the boat stop. Room are clean but old building.No elevators. Room decor was very nice, antique. Friendly staff. Breakfast was nice.

My heart sank we I saw our room had its number written on paper and cellotaped to the door. Sadly ominious.

I went with my daughter and we had requested a twin bedded room. What we got was a tiny room with twin beds pushed together. I spoke to Reception who told me that we had twin beds and that we could separate them - somewhat disengenious as the room was so small that they could only be separated by a few inches and it meant that we could only edge sideways down the sides of the bed. So to get into bed, effectively we climbed on the bottom of the beds!

The tiny bathroom door was at one side of the bed, so we had to climb over a bed or edge sideways to get into the bathroom.

The room was clean, but oppressive decor and our room backed on other buildings and was at times noisy. An A/C unit kept a continuous hum the whole time, which didn't bother my daughter, but I was aware of it.

The staff were very pleasant and helpful (apart from the disengenuity regarding the twin beds). The breakfast was excellent and Sammy the breakfast waiter was very pleasant.

I have stayed in much nicer hotel rooms in Venice in comparably priced hotels and I would neither stay at Ca Priuli again or recommend it based on room 404. All other aspects of the hotel I would recommend.

Room Tip: Choose a room at the front facing the canal.

Decor great with big bathroom including a bath, extremely clean throughout and a great location but very hard to find, no real sign with the hotel name not one that is obvious anyway. Take directions from the water boat stop as it is only a 5 minute walk away, just not an obvious walk. Breakfast has a variety of options, buffet style but a very pleasant one. No tea or coffee facilities in room so if you like your cup of tea take a kettle.

Part of the Hotel Palais Priuli, this whole complex is more B & B than Hotel however why split hairs when what you have a wonderful place. Firstly finding the place is really difficult with a map or not so either use your mobile gps, learn Italian or from the water ferries go in an almost straight line for 5mins and then turn left. We probably spent 30 - 40 mins looking for a place that when you realise where it is you will kick your self. So on arrival go straight to the palais priuli next door and not the casa entrance to check in, staff are friendly and will offer to show you to your room. If the porter offers to carry your bags either refuse or be prepared to offer 5 euros or more for the privilege. (Whilst tipping is not the norm in Italy of more than say one of two euros) I guess staff are used to more generous Americans and british tourist because when we tipped a couple of euros the ond saying if looks could kill as he stormed off without thanking us! On arrival to the room were had the main room shown in the image for this hotel, with its balcony over one of the canals and large bathroom not forgetting the stunning chandelier and beautifully decorated bedroom. We were extremely pleased with this room. The mattress is very firm and the only real disappointment was the pillows which were cheap and flat. The tv only shows Italian shows but your in venice so enjoy the culture and fine food but avoid all the main tourist routes as they tend to be poor quality expensive rubbish. We booked this room with gala hotels and only paid £52 per night which excluded a 5 euro local tax rate for two. Definitely compare prices as some people paid almost three times the price that we paid. Unlike the Palais priuli checkout is 12pm here so this is an added bonus and breakfast is served up to 10.30am so chance for a lie in if you wanted. Breakfast was adequate and a reasonable selection for continental style. Overall we liked the charm of this place, you can use the main hotels lounge and definitely ask for a room with a balcony. Avoid this place if you don't like staircases. 10 mins from st marks square.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room with canal view.

This is a very well located small hotel, just a few minutes from Piazza San Marco. The decor is sumptuous, the staff friendly and helpful, and the street quiet for sleeping. Our arrival was delayed and the staff was willing to wait up for us even though it was after midnight when we finally showed up. If you like those gorgeous marble tiled bathrooms of Europe, complete with heated towel racks, this place it for you.
My only complaint is the bed was uncomfortable and made it difficult to sleep restfully. We had a tiny room (quite enough for us) #504, and if I were to return I'd happily stay there again, choosing another room with what I would hope would be a more comfortable bed.

Room Tip: 1. Ask to try to the bed before committing to the room. 2. Make sure breakfast is included. Buying...

Had a room with a small romantic balcony overlooking the canal and some gondolas, it was amazing even tho it was in february, still quite chilly, but we enjoyed every bit of it :) Very close to san marcos square, and we enjoyed watching all the masks walking up and down the tiny street under our balcony, it was a lovely getaway... :)
