We decided on Italy to celebrate our 25th anniversary, and started things off perfectly by staying at Hotel Palazzo Abedessa! We intentionally did not select a hotel on the Grand Canal - too expensive for a place to just sleep, and too noisy to actually sleep! Palazzo Abadessa was an excellent alternative for us. Darwin was fantastic, made us feel entirely welcome. The breakfasts were amazing, and thankfully the weather was enjoyable so that we could sit outside in the garden to eat. It was close to the water bus for our train to Cinque Terre, easy for water taxi to get to from the airport, and the room was terrific. Really a very nice place, and a great start to our trip!

Room Tip: Small boutique hotel so I doubt there is a ton of difference in rooms. Just let Darwin know the purpose of your visit, and what you would like in a room.

This hotel is fantastic! Two things stood out above and beyond all else: the gorgeous back garden where we relaxed and escaped the tourist craziness of venice and most importantly, Darwin and the incredible hotel staff. We were greeted each evening after a long day of sightseeing with complementary Prosecco and soft drinks, snacks, etc. We so enjoyed having breakfast each morning in the garden, and appreciated Darwin's restaurant recommendations. He made our stay extra special. This is a very special hotel in Venice. We look forward to staying there again in the future.

My husband and I travelled to Venice in May 2012. It was raining heavily upon our arrival (bit of a mood dampener), but our spirits were soon lifted by the scenic water taxi trip from the airport and the wonderfully warm reception we received at the Palazzo Abadessa (They even provided umbrellas when we later ventured out into the rain). The mood and atmosphere of the hotel is one of old world Venezian charm, with the reception and dining areas being beautifully decorated and complemented by the calm and tranquil garden. Our room (no 25) was luxurious and comfortable with antique furniture, a beautiful orchid and complementary proscecco and fruit. All the staff were exceptionally nice and seemed genuinely happy to be of help in any way. Breakfast the next morning was very nice. My favourite part was the freshly prepared fruit and the croissants, which were wonderfully rich yet light. We had breakfast both in the breakfast room and out in the garden during our stay (depending on the weather), and we enjoyed them both. Cannaregio is a lovely district, with plenty of shops, and some lovely restaurants. Algiubagio on Fondamente Nove was wonderful, they have an outside terrace which looks out towards the Isola di San Michele and Murano. Do book as they are popular. We covered the majority of Venice on foot, enjoying getting lost in the maze like streets, but we also tried out the Vaporetto, we recommend taking the No 1 up the Grand Canal. Our Venice highlights included St Marks Basilica (Darwin arranged it for us, so we had a time slot and didn't have to queue), The Doges Palace, music and coffee at Florian's in St Marks Square and the Rialto Market, as well as many magnificient Churches. We also liked the 24 hour clocks, particularly the one in the Doges Palace which moved anti clockwise. Oh and the icecream, scrumptious! Best of all though, was returning home to the Palazzo Abadessa after a hard days sightseeing, seeing the staffs' welcoming smiles and relaxing in the garden with a coffee as the sun moved lower in the sky. True Bliss.

This property was recommended to us by friends who had stayed here and they were point on with their recommendation. Classic. Beautifully appointed. Excellent service. And many smiles on the staff's faces and on ours. It was a perfect respite from the crowds and the garden provided a wonderful setting for outdoor breakfasts. We loved the Italian cheeses and fruit that were served. On the day that it rained, we took a free water taxi to Murano and had the factory to ourselves. Perfect. But don't forget to return the beautiful room key when you leave. My husband did and it cost $80 to return it quickly! Darwin was most gracious about it, especially since we sent it along with chocolates.

We will definitely return to "our home in Venice."

We stayed at the Palazzo Abadessa for a special birthday trip, and what a great decision it was. We took a water taxi direct from Marco Polo airport to the door of the hotel - right on the canalside, and were welcomed to "our home in Venice". As soon as we stepped inside we could tell this would be a special place; such beautiful furnishings and decor with flowers to match. Our room was a modest sized classic room, but don't be put off by the term - it was beautifully appointed, with silk lined walls and period furniture, and best of all two juliet balconies that overlooked the wonderful private garden - as the weather was warm we enjoyed our breakfasts in dappled sunlight surrounded by beautiful flowers and plants, and the cheerful sound of birdsong. To call it a "bed & breakfast" hotel does not so justice to the fantastic level of service received from Darwin and the team. At any time of the day we could order a snack or a drink - and most importantly that essential early morning tea tray delivered right to our room. We met the owner one morning ( sorry we did not catch her name) and it was good to see how proud she rightly was of the hotel and it's decor - all hand picked by her and her family. The hotel is a short step away from the main walking route between train station and Rilato/San Marco, with lots of restaurants/cafes nearby. Like others, we found there to be a pleasant mix of guests that were polite and friendly in a way that mirrored the calmness and tranquility that surrounded us. Altogether a perfect experience, and a place ( or Palazzo!) we are sure to return to - bravissimo!!!

Room Tip: Room 24 - Junior Suite, is the only room with a bath as well as shower. We took a look in this room - amazing! Room 18 - classic room, has Juliet Balconies overlooking the garden
