just come back from a weekend staying here with my wife for anniversary. we booked a superior apartment at £125 a night. v clean and comfortable. the space in these apartments is huge - one large bedroom with ensuite plus one lounge with adjoining kitchen and extra bathroom. Prob too much space for a couple but the view of one of the bridges over the canal from the lounge is beautiful. leaving the window open to watch gondolas drift by was special.

the staff were friendly and unfussy - they allowed us to use the hotel facilities (leave bags, internet, etc) after we had checked out in the morning. they do however lack food/snacks for those who arrive late like we did. Talking of which - finding the hotel is a nightmare if you arrive late at night. It is so hard to locate first time around (many locals do not know it) but that is part of its charm - it is hidden away - but a bigger sign or plaque on the hotel front would have helped. we actually went past it a couple of times before eventually finding it around midnight.

one more thing: the only TV channel in english is CNN and there is MTV. not a big issue but would have liked more choice for those moments of kicking back and relaxing in between the hard work of walking, eating and sleeping...

Just come back from a weekend here and it was just fantastic. The staff were great (from the welcoming email before we left the UK to deliving a bottle of wine to our apartment!|), everything was spotless and the location really could not be bettered. We sat at breakfast (lovely if you like continental), watching gondalas go past the window before a five minute stroll to St Marks Square (and not much longer to Rialto in the other direction) I became slightly worried the cost quoted was per night as I could not believe it compared to the hotel prices I had seen on the net! One tip - it was cheaper to book on their website than on hotel sites! I cannot recommend it highly enough. Get over there!

These are suites, not just rooms. Clean, elegant, quiet. Great bathroom, including washing machine, bidet, and view of canals. Breakfasts were very nice.

The staff, Franca, Guido, Donatella, were great. They made me feel that they were only too happy to be of assistance.

Location is excellent - very central, easy to walk everywhere.

I planned to stay 3 nights, ended up staying 5.

I am grateful to TripAdvisor and to previous guests who wrote their reviews, because this is how I found the hotel.

We stayed at the Corte Grimani for three nights mid October. Walked from St. Mark's Square (after getting off the Alilaguna) - took us about 15 minutes. We could not find the hotel, and stopped in at another hotel for directions, the one directly across from Giorgio Armani. (We missed the sharp left immediately after crossing the bridge).

It is in a quiet little nook, but still centrally located and easy to walk to all the key landmarks. Probably 10 - 15 mins walk to St. Marks. It was really easy to get around.

We stepped into our hotel and received a warm reception. The hotel has an elevator, free internet in the lobby and a tv in the lobby.

We were in a Classic Apartment configuration -- for two people, it was more than enough room. We also had a small side room, which we did not use at all.

The bathrooms were nice sized with aand the water pressure was good. My only complain there is that the toiletries provided were very basic.

The bed, linens, and pillows were comfortable. The drapes don't close all the way - so it might be difficult to sleep if you need the room to be completely dark (also might be tough to sleep in). One thing we did was we used the hangers (the ones with the clips that were in the room to close them together.

The room we were in was quiet and there were no disturbances at night.

There is also a mini kitchen with a washer/dryer (not a washer and a dryer just a machine that has both in there). We did not use it but could be very convenient if you wanted to buy food and cook. We got great recommendations from the hotel on places to eat and they were always spot on.

Highly recommend the hotel!

Loved this place! I chose it because of other reviews on TripAdvisor, and they were all right! I didn't get the breakfast daily, because it seemed a little high priced, but its location can't be beat. It is definitely worth the extra money to get a room facing the canal, because the view is priceless. Rooms are huge, and amenities are ok ( no shampoo, bring your own). Clean and good room servicing. People at front desk helpful and speak good English. No internet in rooms, tho.
