“Short Break”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014 via mobile

We have recently stayed for a short city break. Positive points; the hotel was very clean and well presented throughout, and situated in a fabulous location convenient for everything. The roof terrace bar was also very enjoyable.

Negative points; Despite upgrading to a superior room the room was relativly small with little to no view, and whilst overall well presented and fitted out the air conditioning was very poor. Also 2 single mattresses on a double bed was not ideal. The staff were hit and miss dependant who was on duty and the buffet breakfast average. We would expect more for our money when paying top end prices and feel this was not great value for money.

Our first trip to Venice and we were lucky enough to start here! After a long trip and the confusion around the water taxis service we entered the lobby and all cares melted away. Lorenzo and Massimo at the front desk were wonderful! They assisted us with all sorts of meal plans and always had the perfect recommendation for casual, family friendly, or special dining. Walking directions were explained very clearly and we enjoyed every minute of our stay here. The rooms! The rooms are beautiful, comfortable and so very well appointed. We were greeted with fruit baskets and Prosecco to toast our daughter's graduation. Our bartender made the best white peach daiquiri ever! If we get to return to Venice, we will definitely try to stay here again.

Room Tip: If it's important to you ask for a room with a view ... everything is so tight in Venice, you co...

My husband and I just returned from our trip to Rome, Florence, Tuscany Countryside, and Venice. This hotel was my favorite throughout our trip. It is
beautiful and the location and service is perfect. After much research I was very pleased I chose this hotel. Just one word of advice. There are 2 options when hiring a private water taxi to return to the airport. There is the one where the water taxi will take you all the way to the airport dock and drop you with a 5 minute walk up to the airport. The other is the water taxi will take you through the canals for a 10 minute boat ride and then drop you at a dock where a taxi driver will take you from there on a 20 minute ride right to the airport doors. We thought we were doing the boat ride all the way to the airport and were disappointed with the arrangements. After emailing the hotel once returning home to inquire about this (they set it up) it was a misunderstanding between my husband and the hotel front desk attendant. It was still a great stay and Venice was wonderful, along with this hotel!

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. It was very central for San Marco and the Rialto. It was very clean and the staff were exceptionally helpful with any questions we had. We were in a junior suite which had its own, small balcony with a table and chairs, and inside a sofa and plenty of room. At night we heard no noise from any other guests in our bedroom. Breakfast was good and the roof terrace really a delightful place to relax with a drink or something to eat - away from the bustle of the streets below.

This area is very crowded with tourists; but it only takes a short walk to find more peaceful and very pretty areas close by. We ate, one evening, at the nearby Aqua Pazza restaurant which was situated in a lovely piazza. We would recommend this for the ambience and good service. Allow 60 euros per person including wine.

We have just returned from 3 night stay at La Commedia, nice interior, lovely comfortable rooms,nice terrace to return to after busy sightseeing day or shopping !!! , for a few G&T's or cocktail, even if drinks are a little expensive. Breakfast room on small size but not a problem.
Would definitely return. Just one thing no female staff on reception, noticed the same at hotel in Rome, not wishing to be sexist but would say hotel lacks the femine touch at reception.

This hotel has lovely rooms that are very clean. The roof top bar is a great idea and is an ideal place to end the night.

This is however a 4 star hotel trying to be a 5 star hotel. The day time staff seemed nice enough, night time staff are rude and unhelpful.
At check in, nothing about the hotel was explained to us. The WiFi does not work, you can not log into the system.
We asked the porter for an iron and he told us to ring reception to ask for one. We rang down to reception to ask for an iron straight away and the same porter brought it up. The porter could have done that without us ringing down.
I would describe this hotel as pretentious, the staff think they are better than you and they have ago at you if you don't do things the way they want you to.

The breakfast is a very small buffet and did not fill us up in the morning, which is a disappointment.

Because the level of service is not up to standard I would not spend the money on staying there again. I would try and find somewhere equally as a nice with staff that are not as rude.

I enjoy 4 star hotels and like the quality that you get however this place made me feel very uncomfortable.

First class service and accommodation in the centre of Venice. This was our 3rd visit to the hotel and I'm delighted to confirm that standards have not slipped. We stayed in one of the junior suites which had 2 balconies and was on the 3rd floor (room 308) and did hear some noise from the rooftop bar,but only in the morning when furniture was being moved for cleaning. The room was exceptionally clean and the aircon was easily adjusted to a pleasant temperature for sleeping. Breakfast was good and their was a lovely relaxing atmosphere in the rooftop bar. Many thanks to all the staff for making our visit so memorable.

Room Tip: Book a junior suite if you can, but all rooms are excellent.
