Our room was great. It was big, we were on the top floor so we had really high ceilings and lots of windows since we had a corner room. The location was great... close to the Grand Canal and San Marco's Square. The room very new and clean... we loved everything about it. When I see how expensive Venice is in general the hotel rate doesn't seem as unreasonable when you see what you get. When we booked the breakfast room was not finished so breakfast was not included in our rate. They offered us breakfast at the hotel for 15 euros per person. We thought it was a little expensive, but one morning we tried to find breakfast on our own on the streets of Venice and never found anything that good and it was still expensive. Venice is simply an expensive city.
The degree of engagement which respected our privacy needs. The location and comfort in heating, need for a quiet room and range of fresh foods at breakfast.
The location The aircondition didn't work well,so the room was a bit cold.
I thought at 370 euro a night breakfast should be included,I noticed American package holiday clients were being given a voucher for breakfast.
great location, helpful staff, beautiful rooms, very comfortable bed
Very nice and fancy place Nothing everything was excellent
We checked in early and the hotel provided a complimentary upgrade to a Canal View room, so we experienced the "post card" view of Venice from the room. The bathroom was 5-stars. We enjoyed our stay, but the breakfast could be improved to match the overall quality of the hotel.
The fact that we got what we asked for
This was a lovely stay in venice, the new refurbished room was excellent, The staff were very friendly and helpfull, no breakfast as that part of the hotel was closed at the time of our stay, but was not a problem as it is close to many resturants & cafe's. I would book this hotel if I went to venice again.
The Rooms were excellent, clean, comfortable, excellently furnished and location Th bar area seating was too open, the middle bar had a television on which was not showing much and should idealy be turned off and replaced with music. Lack of complementary water in the room. The instructions to get to the hotel are inaccurate and hotel could be more clearly sign posted
Location Friendly Staff Comfort Cleanliness Did not receive Early Mornight Call on morning of departure We had to awaken staff to pay our Bill - not a bad complaint Lucky we had our own Alarm Clock or flights would have been missed First Class hotel otherwise would re - book and recommend
When making our plan to visit Venice we did not know that the place is an island. The sight of water scared us at first on arrival .It became fun and visit to wonderland. The hotel met our expectation as big and reputable shops are within easy reach. we enjoyed our breakfast which provided good scenery of Venice. Nothing
Location Internet and telephone net were very weak Casanova side was not good to stay
Very friendly and professional initial welcome. Helpful advice from concierge
Well appointed. Classic beauty with modern convenience. The heat control!
If you like the boutique looks with no essence; then you will not mind this hotel. Nothing really works and the staff don't know how to fix it. ,If you like the looks and
Very easy walking distance to everything. Breakfast was included in our stay. Champagne was served on Sunday. Great variety of foods to select from and coffee was amazing. The view of the Grand Canal cannot be any better. Hotel room key and safe were old world.
Profesionalism and kindness of staff.Location on Canal Grande 2 minutes walking distance from Canal Grande;
I stayed at the Casanova Suites which adjacent to the Bauers and for a family of four was great!! The location is just the greatest. The rooms were huge and they offered everything including 2 bathrooms!!! If you are traveling with young adults and spending time in Venice, this place is it. It was not cheap and it shouldnt be but well worth it!! Your on the main canal and yds from St Marks square. I will recomend it to my friends. Needed more TV sets in the bedrooms.
Excellent location - 3 minutes to San Marco, good services, spa facilities in other location (boat transportation to spa), expensive services (wireless internet - 20 Euro, restaurant dinner for two - 250 Euro)
Luxury hotel Location in the heart of Service Modern ambience Great breakfast Service was 5 star They helped us book museum tickets, dinner reservations etc Concierge Raphaela was just amazing No negatives.
Location and personal attention
Location is very good. It is a expensive hotel, the service was not very nice with the exception of concierge, that they did a great gob. The shower was leaking water so every time you use it, there was water all over the restroom, the hair dryer did not work, Just details that you take for granted at that price range hotels.
Location/View - Right on the Grand Canal in Venice next to a Vaporetta stop. Amazing..... I expected a balcony large enough to sit on but was surprised that it was standing room only. The plus was that the windows provided a great view without having to be on the balcony.
I taught the location was perfect,staff where very friendly,room was nice, breakfast was lovely. over priced
Fabulous location as No1 Vaporetto stops on the doorstep, deal for older people and so close to all sights. Views from balconies junior suites are spectacular, ideal for first time visitors to Venice. Rooms are simple as can be expected in most Italian cities, take a portable kettle if you like a cuppa in the morning..no tea-making facilities in Italian hotels.Don't expect to sit on the junior suite balconies they are only tiny and purely decorative. Absolutely loved this hotel much more personal than the other big hotels, classical music piped through the hotel. Very quiet. Breakfast of scrambled egg, sausage and bacon along with other choices. Staff friendly and helpful. No Wi-Fi yet or internet use. Stairway carpets are a bit loose and could be dangerous to older people, also bedroom rugs are a hazard as they slip on the marble, we asked to have ours removed which the staff were more than happy to do. Bed pillows are a bit hard, we asked for extra which were delivered within the hour on the whole the hotel fixed any complaints quickly and always with a smile
We arrived at 5.30am and the hotel was so simply to find. We got off at San Angelo and just walked a few steps to the right and there was the hotel. Our flight was diverted and we spent the night travelling by train so it was nice not to have to look for the hotel when we got to Venice Drinks from the bar were expensive
The hotel had a fabulous location -- right on the Grand Canal, not far from the Rialto bridge and directly at a Vapparetto stop. We checked in very early and not only was our room ready for us, but they upgraded us to a delux room with a canal view and a large balcony. The room was a decent size, well maintained, and all in working order. The breakfast room is a bit small when weather doesn't permit the use of the outside terrace for breakfast, so you may have to wait a few minutes for a table at breakfast.
We loved the room The Mosquitos in the room at night
Polite, helpful and friendly and perfectly located for exploring the sites of Venice.
The Hotel was close to the main attractions of San Marco and was located right on the Grand Canal which was lovely. The price vs the room quality really did not compare. I would expect a lot better for the amount I paid for the room. I'm glad I was there only for one night. However, the staff were very friendly and very helpful.
the location is excellent but the personal and the service attitude is outstanding we loved being there. it would be ideal to have more space in bedrooms.
Convenience next to the San Angelo vaporetto station. Literally 10 steps! Large bed room. Good breakfast choices. Friendly staff (although some with a chip on their shoulder). Unacceptable pillows (for the money), shower activation requires above average mechanical skill, not all lights were working. Warped carpeting on stairs, broken flooring in the garden breakfast area.
The location was perfect. There was an incident where some waste water was dumped in the canal when we had breakfast on the terass. could have been timed better as the smell what not nice.
Friendly staff, interior decoration of the room and lobby The hotel is currently under construction and I could not see out of my window
very good hotel, nice location, good facilities, good customer service. no
Location and the fact that they upgraded our room from Standard double to Deluxe double having a canal view whih was exciting and pleasant. Nothing
Location, food, shopping. Find the makers to see the range of fresh fish. Go to a restaurant with fresh fish on ice displayed outside. Excellent! WiFi was not available in the room. Computer in lobby did not work. Internet through TV in room did not work.
Staff members are polite and friendly, rooms were clean and spacious. Had their own dock and good location close to San Marco Square. Would recommend.
The room given to us was amazing! It was clean, the beds were comfortable and we had the best view of one of the canals! The breakfast was very nice for italian standards, various pastries, fresh cappuccino, toast, meat and cheese, eggs, bacon and fruit and yogurt. The cleaning lady tried to come in in the morning even though we only stayed one night and hadn't checked out yet.
Its Venice! whats not to like???!!! But really, anything there is overpriced, but the staff was nice, our room was just fine, good size, clean. The restaurant was very good and its just the best location! They have a great outdoor area where you can listen to the piano every night while you eat or have a cocktail.....just wonderful. I didnt like that it was across from Giorgio Armani, literally! Spent too much!!!!
its location. I was very disappointed with the room and bathroom , extremely small and in my opinon it was very expensive. it was very misleading and for almost 600 euro it was not worth it. Was expecting a little luxury !!!!!
Everything was amazing at the Palace Bonvecchiati, location is great, Staff so helpful! Would definately go back!
Great location, great staff and nice room. For the price, the breakfast was quite poor. Needed to be more choice of fruit, breads and cereals.
location, comfort and service. the coffee at breakfast was awful. strange when everything else was so good but even the germans were drinking tea instead!
Went to celebrate 20th anniversary. Stayed in a 3 star hotel in Venice before and this was certainly more posh and the price tag reflected that as well. Nice amenities that we were not aware of: breakfast was included at the restaurant, 30 minutes per room of private sauna, jacuzzi or steam sauna time per day. Hotel is a 5 minute walk to St. Mark's Square etc. Staff are very well dressed and say the right words, but I never sensed any authenticity, warmth, friendliness, etc.. I asked for assistance on several occasions from different people related to getting to the airport, a restaurant recommendation, directions, etc and the responses were typically curt and robotic. The only exception was the porter/bellhop from the Philippines, he was great. I would expect more from a 4-star hotel when I'm paying $400-500 per night. It was as if they didn't like their jobs. The same experience was noted in the restaurant which was located in the sister hotel next door. Doubt I will return given the opportunity.
The staff was very courteous and helpful. The room was more than I expected and very comfortable.
What I preferred in the hotel was the location. The room was nice, spacious and clean. The view from the room was not good. The breakfast was poor.
Location, Confort No Complaints
atomosphere and comfort, very accomodating. Good service from staff
The rooms are well designed and the bedding and towels etc exemplary I think the breakfast could be much improved, it was a let down.Making the Internet connection was difficult.
the quality and good taste of the decore. the sauna and swimming pool not working and the lack of apology or compensation for it
Perfect location. Bathroom was spotlessly clean. Small room with no view - not what we thought we had booked. Breakfast could have had a wider selection. Interior beginning to look a bit tired, and we only had one pillow each. Still cant understand Italian reticence to use duvets rather than blankets.
Staff was very rude We had lot of luggage there was no one to help take the luggage through the stairs. Charged extra fee If 2 person stay in the room. Gave us 2 twin bed room.
What was there not to like; an excellent location, well appointed rooms complete with beautiful Murano glass chandeliers, polite staff who were multi-lingual with excellent communications skills. Hotel Rialto is an ideal location for exploring Venice. The hotel is central to all major tourism attractions as well as shopping, restaurants etc. Water buses and water taxis are readily accessible from right outside the front door, making the hotel particularly easy to find for first time visitors to the city. I'd highly recommend Hotel Rialto. One very minor gripe, but not enough to spoil an otherwise enjoyable weekend stay; visitors to the hotel are offered a complimentary visit to a glass factory on the island of Murano. Guests should be aware that there is no such thing as a free meal, or in this case a free trip. You will be expected to put your hand in your pocket and purchase some of the very expensive glass products. Having said that, the glass is spectacular and you may well want to make a purchase on its merit, just be advised that this is a hard sell. Expect to budget at least €200 though it would be easy to spend much more.
friendly staff supply of gluten free food
location and price no
staff were amazing
the quality of the room, the central location and the helpful staff
Great location, nice and hysteric hotel
The staff is not customer service oriented. AC was not working and we were above 40C (110F). Couldn't sleep at all
Location is good We were placed in what is called "the Annex" - never stay there - it is accessed by a dimly lit alley way filled with garbage - no evalators and no view whatsoever. The Hotel Rialto should be embarrassed to count this as part of their establishment.
There was nothing tol like about the hotel itself. The location was good. The hotel was not clean by any stretch of the imagination.Didnt like the dirt on the walls or the mould in our bathroom.
I liked the style of the hotel; it so modern. I also liked the cleanliness of the hotel. The room was so small and narrow, and the food although was expensive but was not so good.
A little bit of luxury!! The interior design was beautiful, the bar/restaurant and bedrooms all were beautifully kept with lovely little details, particularly liked the complimentary drinks and amazing nibbles on arrival! The bed was very comfortable and liked the luxury linen sheets to! Overall a fantastic small boutique hotel.
It was so close to everything
easy to find and for vanice that is a plus. nice public rooms. view of the gondolas was interesting and we did not find them excessively noisy as others had and we were on the first floor there were no comfortable chairs in the room just hard back dining type.
Place of hotel is very nice. Place of hotel is very nice. But We had some troubles at hotel. In the morning, we had to eat with about 25 guys who look like a construction worker. I asked the reception, who they were, "ı don't want to eat with them in the same place", they were noisy, bad smell, not a guest of the hotel and the reception told us, they were tourists. If they were tourist, where were the couples of them??? I have been charged for that breakfast. And from 6 am in the morning I had beed woke up by the noise of house keepers. So much noise. On the corridor noisy clean bags... It was a bad experience.
The views of the canal and the location I felt the breakfast was too basic for a four star hotel. basic. I expexted a better quality breakfast
Location opposite the Gondola park and for a first visit to Venice very easy to get to main sights bar supposed to be open until midnight-often shut by 11.30
the location, next to pier
Excellent location, free internet, helpful staff. It's 30seconds from St Marks Square and 8mins walk to the Rialto Bridge, excellent value for money (which is unique in Venice!)
location, staff and room view The walls in my room were a bit thin - I could hear everything the couple next door were doing and saying. It would be nice to have a kettle and some coffee and tea in the room.
Great location right off Piazzo San Marco & major gondola loading site made for interesting visuals and sounds.We had cool weather so opening windows were nice to have. Bit noisy but Venice is compact so is somewhat to be expected. Unfortunately the building next door was being renovated and jack hammers were running in the background most of the day.
The perfect location, just 3 minits from San Marco. Big confortable rooms Bathroom with no ventilation sistem and complicated way to reach the room from reception
views of venice and again very nice hotel and staff
The central location. Friendliness and efficiency of staff. Had to pay for use of tea and coffee bags in the room.
The Space and comfort of the rooms Breakfast could have been better
Location, cleanliness, breakfast variety, helpful and friendly staff
Having a room that overlooked the canal allowed for the unique ability to observe the busy canal crossings and food market business from above. The room was very comfortable and sound-proof, and the hotel had an excellent placement for shops and sightseeing.
The standard of the hotel and its location suited us perfectly
Apparently an old German consulate building... An excellent location on the Grand Canal, two steps from Ca d'Oro vaporetto stop. Very comfortable room with a private patio... No view from the room- but who cares - just go up to the roof terrace and have a drink admiring one of the best views in Venice. Friendly staff... Good brieckfast.. Good choice. Almost nothing - just a few bulbs and bits and pieces in the room need to be taken care of.
Did not get a room facing the main canal. Beware that when you book they may put you in a room not facing the canal
excellent room (although upgraded), very nice position, nice and helpful staff. Breakfast a bit modest, especially the coffee.
Official,serious atmosphere, but courteous reception, neat & very well dressed receptionists, and appropriate attire of other staff, well decorated entrance of the hotel; restaurant ambiance very good, chef very good food, staff friendly,elaborate choice in breakfast, rooms were very comfortable and spacious, luxurious bathroom & spa. Reception desk staff- could be more friendly and eager to help,should have spent more friendly time to orientate the guests, and take extra time to explain the facilities available--they had a more reserved attitude, didn't see openness. Could have more choices in the dinner menu.
Easy to find, good facilities, good price, breakfast is really good. Room is a little bit dark. No wifi in the room.
The Foscari Palace was a wonderful hotel right on the Grand Canal. We had a lovely room with complimentary water and fruit bowl and incredible breakfasts in the morning. The hotel staff were really friendly and on the Saturday night there was a free cocktail evening with drinks, nibbles and a harpist. There is a gondolar ferry stop right outside the hotel, so very easy and cheap to cross the canal. When we revisit Venice, we will always stay at the Foscari Palace, it really made our holiday very special. Not applicable
It is quiet yet very accessible to the town. It is actually inside downtown area but very secluded. Very friendly hotel owner and staff. Good recommendations regarding restaurants.
The location is excellent, very central and within a walking distance to every major atraction, the rooms are lovely, very new and clean and the staff is extremely helpful and nice (which is very unusual in turistic Italian cities) It is difficult to find the Hotel, it would be good to have signs to point us to the right direction
The staff,hotel, facillities and location Everything was fine
location was so convenient to sights. Loved the breakfasts. Staff was very helpful and friendly. loved our stay.
Polite and attentive service from all staff, great location once you get your bearings.Well laid out rooms and environmentally friendly set up for airconditioning and ventilation of rooms.
Hidden in a private courtyard this is a quiet retreat from the tourist hordes outside. Excellent variety at the breakfast buffet. Walking distance to all the major sites. Like all hotels in Italian cities rooms are small and prices are high.
Price and location no kettle, blanket.
The location and quality of the hotel were really good. It was difficult to find
Staff is more than friendly and helpfull. Location is just perfect. Rooms are in good conditions.
Very convenient location and helpful staff Room was small and not impressive for a 4* hotel. Actually nothing at the hotel was 4*, 3* would fit better.
Beautiful, friendly hotel in an ideal location- tucked away in a quiet little square ......yet the hotel is minutes from shopping streets and St Mark's square. Highly recommend it and will definitely stay again.
