“Quiet & quaint, and qualified staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2012

A fine and quiet Venice location, adjacent to the Opera House and only steps away from major sites and vaporetto's. The hotel has not much changed in the last twenty years and the amenities are all right. A good ratio quality/price for Venice, especially the spaciousness of the rooms and bathroom, with friendly and competent staff.

Location:
The hotel could be a little hard to find if you're not prepared, but it's not far at all from St. Mark's. We got a water taxi (Venicelink) from the airport to Trinita Pier, and from there it was about 2 minutes walk. We found the hotel very easily but only because we had a small map. Venice can be very confusing anyway due to the narrow streets!
It is a great base to see the all the main sites as it is so close to St. Mark's. It was also in a very quiet area, and we had no problems with noise whatsoever...from outside or inside the hotel. It is not on one of the main canals but you do have canal-view rooms. Our room looked out onto a small canal and a bridge, very pretty.

Rooms:
Our room was very spacious, with a bedroom seperated from another room by an archway. the second room had a large double wardrobe, desk, chair and stool/bench. The bathroom was the biggest I have seen in any hotel I have stayed in, with a large bath and shower, bidet, toilet, hairdryer and sink and plenty of space in between. The bathroom was also spotlessly clean. Bath/shower gel was provided, along with tissues, shower cap, soap and a small vanity set containing cotton wool pads, cotton wool buds and nail file. The hot water didn't take long to heat up and it was powerful. We had a large mirror in the bedroom, a full sized mirror, 2 long mirrors on the wardrobe as well as a large mirror in the bathroom (great for getting ready!). Two decent bedside tables with lamps, a minibar fridge, and a TV. We were able to get the CNN news channel. The room was always warm (Venice was absolutely freezing when we went so this was a God-send). The window was secure, with bars and heavy shutters. There was also a small safe in the wardrobe which was very handy. The decor of the hotel room was very traditional italian, which may seem tacky and 'over-the-top' to some people but we found it charming. The room was very, very clean and the maid was in every day on our request. Towels, bath mats, and toiletries were all replenished.

Downsides: the hairdryer was weak, thankfully I had brought my own. Could probably do with more plug sockets in the room. No tea/coffee making facilities in the room.

Hotel staff:
All staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. They gave us guides, told us a great places to eat, and provided us with room service and drinks.

Breakfast:
Continental breakfast was good. Toast, croissants, yoghurt, cereal, tea, coffee, cappuccino/coffee/hot chocolate etc. machine. fruit juice, ham cheese, bread rolls, jams, marmalades, spreads.
Downsides: no fresh fruit!

All in all, I can't really criticise the hotel too much - any downsides were extremely minor. Would definitely stay here again. A great base from which to explore the beauty of Venice.

Room Tip: We had room number 157 - this was more than adequate size for a couple staying 3 nights.

We stayed here for 5 nights. Room and bathroom were clean. We got a room that was a little cheaper than a double because it had two single beds pushed together, and you could barely tell it was two beds instead of one. There was a nice wardrobe to hang our clothes, and it locked. There is internet access-- 2 euros for 24 hours worth of internet. Not the fastest internet but certainly adequate for checking email, etc. Slow if you are uploading pictures from a camera or trying to watch a video. It was fairly quiet except for New Year's eve, which is understandable (there was a lot of noise coming from the restaurant that is attached to the hotel). No more than a few minutes away from St. Mark's Square; can't beat the location if you want to be that close. All of the concierges except for one were very friendly and helpful. The best part was the continental breakfast, which includes toast, croissants, cereal, plain and sweetened yogurt, jam, honey and Nutella, tea, juice, and there's a cappuccino maker as well. It lasts from 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and is constantly being replenished. There's a large and comfortable dining area to eat. We had a great stay here and would recommend it. We would stay here again.

We made a terrible mistake. The relais and chateau hotel we were meant to stay in was booked so we listened to the concierges recommendation. thus, La Fenice.
The first room we were in had drilling front he street so loud we couldn't stand it and walls were shaking. They moved us to another room that had a closet..yup! First one didn't. The hotel was so strangely located that we were lost every day and also at night worse as we were a bit afraid walking the dark streets. Friends had asked us where we were staying in Venice and I thought that was annoying. Now I know why! You need to stay in a good hotel in Venice! Everything is terribly expensive in the city to begin with but so happy to have finally visited the city! We even had to pay for a small bottle of water. We left after two nights and went to Florence and stayed at a fabulous relais and chateau hotel that was less than the dump in Venice(hotel in Florence called Relais Santa Croce). I was miserable in the hotel and wouldn't walk on floors without shoes......my advise is to save up and go somewhere else!

Room Tip: Both rooms we saw looked like a bordello...

We stayed in 9 hotels which were all 3 stars across Europe. This review is based on the fact it is a 3 star hotel.

Pros: The biggest shower of any of the hotels we stayed in. Bathroom was good. Room was clean and spacious. The air conditioner worked well. The Staff were very friendly and helpful, all spoke english well enough. Free wifi for 15minutes every day, or 2 euro for 24hours. Great location in Venice as many great eateries and San Marco Piazza are all just around the corner. Buffet breakfast was as good as any of the other 3 star hotels we stayed at.

Cons: Finding the hotel could be a bit tricky, however finding anything in Venice is tricky until you've been there before. Had to take the steps up to the first floor where the elevator begins, however staff helped us with our luggage. If you were disabled, Venice is full of stairs anyway, so the stairs to the elevator were not an issue. Our first night we noticed some mosquito's in our room, i think the previous guests whom checked out had left the windows open all morning.

This hotel was fantastic, it met all of our needs during our time in Venice. We wouldn't have a problem going back there in the future.

This long-established hotel is good value for money; comfortable, quiet, only a few minutes' walk from the city centre and situated in a peaceful little square. It is very near vaporettos, San Marco, the Rialto bridge, restaurants and so on.
Our first room was small and dark, with a filthy carpet and a bathroom designed for midgets. When I protested the staff were very obliging and friendly about finding us a much nicer room with a pleasant view. The receptionists were also very helpful about booking our journey to the airport, finding other restaurants and so on.
The breakfast is excellent and very much better than many Italian hotels. We would have liked muesli as well but that is a small quibble considering how delicious it all was, especially the yogurt. The restaurant is wonderful - as it has been for many decades.
We were on vacation so were not bothered about the internet or television but both seemed perfectly adequate.

Room Tip: The rooms are larger in the newer wing of the hotel.

First off the pics of the room look nothing like those on the site. They are tiny with hard beds and outdated baths. A bit of a walk from the city center. Staff was OK and breakfast was limited. The price is very high for the room and hotel type. More of a 2-3 star hotel.
