“A Great Hidden Find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2013

We flew to Venice two days early to catch a cruise. After over 20 hours in airports and airplanes, I bit the bullet and paid 110€ for a water taxi direct from the airport to the hotel. We would have saved a bit by taking a bus to Piazzale Roma and then a water taxi to the hotel. The cheapest alternative would be to fight the crowds on the vaporetto and then drag our bags up and down the steps of the bridges between the hotel and the nearest vaporetto stop.
The hotel is well hidden. The day we checked in we wanted to stay up until our normal bedtime so we got a restaurant recommendation and staggered out to St. Mark's Square and then to find the restaurant. Finding the hotel was a challenge. We forgot to take another review's advice to remember that it is directly behind the large Armani store. An hour later we finally found it.
The hotel has among the largest rooms I have ever seen in Europe. We asked for a quiet room, and except for some 4-5 am noise from another room, it was very quiet. The location could not be better. The hotel's check-out time of 10 am is early, but they let us stay an extra half hour; held our luggage and later ordered a water taxi (€90) to take us to the ship. The staff was very accomodating. We were very pleased with our choice.

We booked this nice, well-located apartment accommodation for 3 nights. One of the big wins with this place is it's location near St Mark's, which is less than 5 mins away. Despite being in busy San Marco, it is quiet and off to the side from busy streets. One suggestion would be to map it out before you lug around your luggage - we accidentally had to cross the Rialto twice. Note that it is on the same side as the ferry stops. You can access it off of a main street before a small ponte. About a 10 min walk from Rialto. The concierge are very friendly, contrary to the odd comment here that I previously read. We opted out of using the kitchen and washing facilities - we were on holiday of course! The room was very clean. TV in the sitting area, very new bathroom amenities, great shower pressure with constant hot water, very good mattresses. Electronically programmed safe for valuables. Great recommendations from concierge for food and coffee. E R Salva was our favourite morning cafe and pastry place - we went there almost twice a day! Things to mention: for the perfect gondola tour, walk across the Rialto and get into San Pollo. Hail a gondolier who looks relaxed. We had a very friendly one who was waiting in one of the campos we were walking through. Too many tourists try to hail a gondola in San Marco. Another good activity was too walk around St Mark's at 9-11pm. Contrary to the comment that Venice too touristy with bad food, as long as you stick to the recommendations, quality and taste were quite good. Good place to stay and happy to recommend it to friends and family.

Corte Grimani has it all: great location, spacious accommodations, and friendly staff! It is about a 5 minute walk to both San Marco Piazza and the Rialto Bridge, and the hotel is near many nice restaurants and shops. You get a lot of room space (as they are more like small apartments) for the rate. Nice size bathrooms, especially for Europe! All of the staff was friendly, and our room was very clean. The front desk staff gave us great suggestions for where to eat and how to get to places. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to everyone.

We were travelling with 2 other couples when we stayed at Corte Grimani earlier this month. Two couples stayed in 201 which is really two rooms but each has its own private bathroom. As each room has its own separate door privacy was never an issue. We did spend a lot of time in the room with the small balcony & window which looked down on the canal and seemingly continuous flow of gondolas in the canal below. The couple that had the sofa bed said it was very comfortable so this "downside" should not deter anyone.

We arrived by train from Rome and took a water taxi to the hotel. It is expensive but literally drops you off at the front door of the Grimani. When we spread the cost over the three couples it was not too bad. We saw lots of folks pulling their suitcases to and from the vaparetto stops but be aware there are a lot of bridges (no ramps, just steps) to negotiate.

We found the staff to be extremely courteous, friendly and helpful. Venice is a "walking place" and the Grimani is located perfectly for the popular sites and attractions.

Room Tip: Be sure to get a room with the balcony/window to oversee the canal & bridge.

We've just left Residence Corte Grimani after a three night stay as a family of five and couldn't rate this accomodation more highly. The room itself was sufficiently spacious for our family (unusual in Europe), spotlessly clean and well equipped. Most importantly, the location could not be better - listening to passing gondoliers serenading fom our window - and the staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful.

Location, Service, Comfort, Value. This is a great find - spotlessly clean and comfortable and a wonderful, friendly and helpful staff and so much space for the money. Why pay for a "name" hotel and pay lots of money for a small room and amenities you aren't going to use? The units which have sleep sofas are obviously designed for families but for two it's a grand suite of rooms perfect for relaxing after days of walking in a very densely crowded city. We were in unit 401 - a superior apartment. Loads of space, quiet area at night, very comfortable furnishings, great views of busy intersecting canals during the day, and easy to walk everywhere. Our friends stayed in unit 503 - a standard unit with a view of rooftops which was also spacious and comfortable. Neither of us used the full kitchen facilities but the mini-fridge was a nice amenity. Both units were light and bright. Very easy to find location, a few minutes from either the Rialto or San Marco stops and centrally located so that you can wander off in any direction to easily reach the main sights of Venice. Guido and Donatella could not have been more helpful and pleasant. Front desk and concierge services all in one. (they even led friends of our staying elsewhere to their hotel!) We really felt that the staff was glad we were there and they welcomed our feedback on their very helpful recommendations and advice. Highly recommend Corte Grimani. Many thanks again to the excellent staff for a great stay in Venice.

We stayed here for two nights recently and found it to be perfect. We arrived by train from Rome to Venezia SL station and because we knew no different, we caught a water taxi (€70)! We later realised this was unnecessary. Instead, we recommend you take the ferry to the Rialto stop on line 2 and walk to the hotel from there (10 mins and we did it when we left with 2 large suitcases). This will only set you back around €7 per person. The hotel is clean and the staff are so friendly, nothing is a problem. There is a computer at reception you can use if you need to print anything. We were upgraded to the large apartment with the canal view (3rd floor) which made the experience even more special. Two bathrooms, a massive bedroom and kitchen/lounge/dining area. The location is so central it takes 1 minute to walk to st marks square, 10 mins to Rialto Bridge. We couldn't fault this hotel and strongly recommend it!
