Wow! Where to begin? Had the pleasure of visiting for our 20th Anniversary. Perfect location (can't overemphasize this)- sit on the patio and just stare at the Rialto bridge. Central location in Venice. Quiet dead end street for location but 30 seconds and you are on the main walking/ shopping streets/ close to everything. Perfect staff- everyone, and I mean EVERYONE knows your name. Very impressive. So easy to arrive. Take water taxi and it will drop you right off on their own dock, and if staff have an estimate of your arrival time, don't be surprised if they are already waiting there to unload your bags. Owner Matteo really cares about his guests, introducing himself and staff upon arrival and sharing the history of this wonderful treasure. Hotel Ponte Antico is genuine. Any restaurant recommendations- Alex and Oliver have you covered. Not one bad suggestion. Alex a sommelier as well. All the staff we met really have beautiful souls. Not just giving you tips, but I mean really getting to know them over the 4 days we were there. We felt so blessed. They truly enjoy their job and take great pride in this hotel and city. Beautiful bar, patio (day and night). At night, after a long day of touring Venice, sit on the patio with a spritz and just dream, watching the gondoliers go by and the Rialto lit up in all its glory. In the morning, while enjoying breakfast, see the morning boats come by restocking supplies to the town. Fascinating transformation. Beautiful breakfast spread. Even the espresso machine is a work of art. I can't believe our four days went by so fast. My wife and I came to Venice with fairly low expectations. How wrong we were. If you want an experience you will NEVER forget, start with Al Ponte Antico Hotel.

Mateo, the owner, has created a wonderful small boutique hotel with the most amazing staff. These reviews do not lie. We spent 3 days here pre-cruise and really did want to leave. The breakfast was so delicious. We began and ended every day on the balcony with the Rialto bridge as our backdrop....priceless. Alex,Thomas and Rosealba made our stay so memorable.

Not easy to find -- down a narrow alley from a chocolate store - but once you get there - lovely décor, friendly staff, a engaging owner who makes breakfast everyday and a view of the Grand Canal from the terrace (for drinks/breakfast) that is one of the great experiences of life (ie does not get better than this) ... our room had no window, but we did not care - comfortable and with a modern, well equipped bathroom -- would stay again -- just a wonderful small hotel with wonderful staff.

Booked this for a surprise 60th present. Arrived in Venice via the Orient Express taken to the Al Ponte Antico Hotel WOW WOW WOW what an amazing place from the time we arrived it was a dream. We was met by Mateo shown round this gem of a hotel. We was taken to our room our cases were already there it was beautiful. I had email information at the hotel explaining that when we arrived I had booked a galleon cruise needed a water taxi it was done blink of an eye and at 8pm there it was waiting. The view from the terrace is breath taking and is wonderful to just sit and watch the world go by. Everyone at the hotel are truly perfect and you are made to feel as you are the only guests there. So much choice of breakfast fabulous home made cakes fresh cooked eggs. I can not explain in words how special this place is. Go you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: We had a superior room but I would be happy in any room at this hotel

Wow! What a beautiful hotel in the perfect location. We came here on our honeymoon and cannot say enough about this place. We arrived by water taxi and the owner greeted us by name and took us on a tour of the property. They made us feel so special that it was almost more like a bed and breakfast. They gave us prosecco and we had it out on their amazing terrace with a view of the rialto bridge. The hotel is also in a perfect location to San Marco square. We highly recommend this place and would love to come back and stay here again!
