No need to pre-plan events to attend, ( I went for carrnival), they will make suggestions and book events for you.

Room was modest in size but skillfully and beautifully decorated. I will be returning

Pros: Clean, quiet, and we'll run hotel in a great location.
Cons: Nothing to say.
Pros: This was our last booking on a three week trip and it is off the beaten path which is nice as there are WAY less tourists than in other parts of Venice, but it is still close to everything. The staff was amazing and the breakfast and afternoon happy hour was a treat. Our room looked beautiful.
Cons: While our room "looked" beautiful, it was anything but. The bed was possibly the least comfortable bed I have ever slept in and the pillows were like 2 inch foam. As is normal with old buildings in Venice, there is some settling but the floors in this room were drastically slanted.
Everything smelled of mildew which some say is typical for Venice but this was my third trip in a variety of old hotels in Venice and I have never smelled that before. Additionally, each room (living room and bed room) had a variety of electrical control panels on the walls that were ridiculously confusing, especially when you just want to turn off a lamp.

Pros: The perfect place to stay while visiting Venice! Close to everything, wonderful staff who went out of their way to be helpful and accommodating. We felt completely spoiled! Wonderfully romantic room and delicious breakfast in the morning...would definitely stay again!
Pros: Unusual. Helpful staff.
Cons: Wifi limited. Facilities need updating.
Pros: Location was absolutely perfect.
The restaurant staff were amazing!!!
Cons: However, I wasn't too pleased with much else considering how much I paid for the room.
The room key is unnecessarily large.
Pros: Incredibly helpful staff and speak quite good english. Very clean and interesting architecture. And Mirco in the bar makes a killer White Russian. Definitely recommend this place
Pros: Personnel très disponible, hôtel typique, spacieux, très confortable, proche de la place St Marco avec arrêt du vaporetto à 2 mn. Séjour super ! Je le recommande c'était GENIAL.
Historical building family run since 4 generations.
The hotel Saturnia is one of the very few of its category still family run since more than 100 years. Located in a very central area in Calle XXII Marzo, one of the most exclusive venetian streets, just 3 minutes walking distance from St. Mark's Square.
With 87 rooms on 4 floors, all with all modern comodites free WiFi access, very appreciated restaurant La Caravella and Bar.

Pros: The hotel is beautiful, like staying in a museum. Having breakfast surrounded by frescoes was a unique experience
Cons: I asked the front desk to help me book a train to Florence the night prior to checking out. They told me that they could not do this for me, but not to worry as the trains don't sell out anyway. Unfortunately when we showed up at the train station, the train to Florence we needed was sold out ruining our plans for the afternoon. I stayed in two other hotels on this stay in Italy and in both the staff booked train tickets for me
A unique location in the heart of Venice, a 5-star luxury hotel within a splendid 15th-century Venetian palace. Once the patrician residence of the noble Sagredo family, the palace still retains its historical and artistic beauty over five centuries later. Overlooking the Grand Canal, between Ca' D'Oro and the Rialto Bridge, Ca' Sagredo has been awarded museum and national monument status. A stay at the Ca' Sagredo is a truly unique experience.
Cons: The staff was very rude. Not the standard for a 5 star hotel.
Pros: Location, location, location. Felt small & discreet.
Cons: I cannot fault it. (I did not have any meals there, however).
Pros: Great location, short walking distance from San Marco and nice shops and restaurants. Very close to the waterbus.
Very elegant, clean and breakfast was excellent. I will come back.
Cons: Everything was great

Cons: After 10 days leaving was very hard.
Pros: Fantastic staff, great location, cool hotel design and décor, great bar and food. Will definitely stay there again.

Pros: The hotel is located right in the middle of the tourism.boat access was simple and walking along waterfront at night was delightful. Hotel room was small but upgraded bathrooms were clean and nice. Gym was high tech with treadmill bike and weights but many runners opt for the waterfront unless too late in the day and the crowds make it impossible to get around
Cons: Upgrade carpets and Bedspreads
tv had very spotty reception
Ac unit would click 3times and turn on
Pros: Location. View of rooms facing the canal.
Pros: It is a great place to stay because it is a stone throw away from St. Marks Square. The water bus that took us to the airport stopped right in front of the hotel, which made the it easy for us to travel to the airport with our big suitcases.
Pros: Beautiful old hotel. small rooms, but efficient and comfortable for 2 people. Great decorative touches in the room. Our room had views of the grand canal, with windows that could've opened for a fresh breeze off the water. Breakfast included in the price of stay, and was delicious, with many options on the buffet, fresh made cappuccinos, and views of the water. Extremely easy access to vaporetto, minutes walk from San Marco and many restaurants and shops. Very friendly English speaking staff
Cons: A con for some: we had to climb 2 flights of stairs to our room even after taking the elevator, which was fine for us, but may be problematic or some; the elevator was tiny, which seems fairly standard for Italy, but good to know. In general recommend packing light, no matter where you stay as navigating over bridges in the city can be challenging with big bags!
Pros: Location, super nice staff, new rooms.
Cons: For the price we were expecting a better view on the room. On the contrary we were situated on a back building
Pros: The location of the hotel was ideal. It is a very short walk to Piazza San Marco. The hotel is also right next to some water ferry stations, which makes transportation easy. The staff serving breakfast were great.
Cons: Air conditioner was not working.
Pros: Take a water taxi to Piazza San Marco and you are only a few steps to the hotel. The hotel included a free boat trip to Murano to see a glass blowing studio and they also offer a one-hour boat tour around town in the afternoon for only 25 Euros per person. A decent hot and cold breakfast buffet was provided by the restaurant out front. We also enjoyed a dinner of traditional Italian specialties at the same restaurant in the evening. Our room was an inside room, so our view was only the courtyard area - but that was okay because all we had to do was step out the front door of the hotel and we were in the heart of beautiful scenery. If you request a waterfront room you will have gorgeous views. Our room seemed to be recently updated because everything looked clean and brand new. The bathroom was small but very modern with a relatively large walk-in shower - and it also looked like it had been recently renovated. The hotel common areas were undergoing renovations during our stay, but it did not disturb our visit at all.
Cons: The hotel thought of everything - like a selection of soap products, hair dryer, mirrors, convenience packs, robes, etc., but it took up a great deal of space in an already tight bathroom.
Pros: My room was amazing
Bathroom was awesome
Cons: Loved everything. Really!
Cons: Very dirty furniture.
The Hotel Savoia & Jolanda is located in the historical center of Venice, a few minutes away from St. Mark Square, in a splendid position along Riva degli Schiavoni, in front of the Venice lagoon, from there it enjoys the unforgettable view of Saint Mark´s Basin and the St. George Island. Its position allows one to reach easily the Mercerie and Via XXII Marzo with some of the world´s finest shopping and to visit the Venetian palaces, museums and the art galleries, lesser-known Venice like the more fascinating and secluded as the Sestiere Castello. The high quality standards and services offered to our clients are complemented by a relaxed and a client-friendly ambience, set by the owners, and who offer also delightful accommodation. Everything makes the Hotel Savoia & Jolanda a really special place for lodging in Venice.
The Hotel Monaco & Grand Canal is located in the heart of Venice, a short distance from Saint Mark's Square. The hotel overlooks the Grand Canal, so guests can enjoy breathtaking views of the Basilica della Salute, the Punta della Dogana museum and Giudecca. The hotel is easily accessible: it has its own private mooring for water taxis and the water bus stop is just in front of the hotel. The rooms are elegantly furnished in Venetian style, with precious fabrics, mosaics and luxurious chandeliers.
Pros: We loved the quant atmosphere of the hotel as well as the privacy we were given. It was in a great location to walk anywhere really in Venice. The service was excellent and helpful. The room was just the right size with a great view of a garden. We still had a Venice experience at an affordable cost.
Cons: The first night the room was very cold and the pillows aren't the most comfortable but they aren't the worst.
Pros: This is a charming old hotel that has been completely renovated. The
owner was charming and very helpful. Our upgraded room was particularly nice.
Rialto Bridge and Piazza San Marco are both within a memorable 7-minute stroll of this charming bed and breakfast. At the Piazza, guests can admire the shapely domes and gold mosaics of St. Mark’s basilica, whose present construction dates back to the late 11th century.
Cons: They came and cleaned the from but they decided not to leave some toilet paper. They room rate is $506.00per night but they can't leave any toilet paper. Go figure.
The Boscolo Venezia, Autograph Collection, housed in the old and prestigious Rizzo-Patarol noble palace, is an excellent location for completely immersing yourself in the enchanting atmosphere of Venice. The hotel's XVII-century façade has a portal and loggia on overlapping levels and is hidden a secret garden, the only one to be found in a hotel in Venice, which is perfectly preserved and faces onto the lagoon. The Boscolo Venezia, Autograph Collection combines contemporary comfort with the ‘period luxury’ of the precious marble, splendid frescoes and Majestic chandeliers. Located in Sestiere Cannaregio, it is close to the center but at arm’s length from the more crowded thoroughfares, and thus, shows the true face of Venice and its inhabitants.
Pros: This hotel is right across the street from the Mestre train station. Each morning, when I woke up, I would just buy a cheap train ticket and cross over to the main island of Venice. This was ideal for me, as staying on the mainland saved me hundreds of dollars and was still very convenient. If you have to stay on the mainland like I did, the Tritone is a good location with good rooms, a good staff, and everything you'd need as a base camp to explore Venice.
Cons: There only thing that I didn't like is that the surrounding area is very drab, but I didn't expect more. I knew that it wasn't going to be in a very fancy area, but that really didn't bother me because the location was ideal for what I needed.
Pros: In front the train station, secure
Cons: Same breakfast every day
Pros: Very friendly and helpful staff. they even sell you the bus tickets which is next door. We were very happy withe the location and parking convenience.
Situated in Mestre, this hotel is 0.7 mi (1.2 km) from New Jesolandia and 2.4 mi (3.8 km) from San Giuliano Park. Casino' di Venezia and Porto Marghera are also within 2 mi (3 km).
Our air conditioner wasn't working when we got there, it was putting out not so cool air. When we had the porter come back to the room to check it out he snapped at us and told us the remote control was set and to leave it alone. Later that evening the unit shut down completely. We were told the porter had already been there and there was no service available. The next day they had a repair man there but he was unable to fix it. They did provide us fans as it was very hot. They did try at least to fix it and they did offer to move us back into our original room - which was extremely small and located in the lobby across from the desk. We opted to stay in the larger room even without the A/C
Pros: We were upgraded to a small apartment separate from the main hotel. It was beautiful. It was off the main drag in a quiet street, felt like we were getting away from the bustle
Cons: So many stairs.
Needs an elevator badly. Dragging bags up 4 flights of stairs is not fun or how anyone would want to start their vacation!!!
Pros: Was really close to the main bridge in Venice
Cons: Had to drag my bags up 4 flights of stairs because there's no elevator. Also the 'breakfast' is just croissants and coffee. Not really a 'breakfast'...
Pros: It was a walk back in time. Everything about this hotel represented old italy.
When you stay at Antica Locanda Sturion - Residenza d'Epoca, you'll be in a great location, within just a 10-minute walk of Rialto Bridge and St. Mark's Basilica. Free perks include WiFi and continental breakfast daily between 8:00 AM and 10 AM. LCD TVs and premium bedding are offered in all rooms.
Pros: The breakfast is wonderful and I loved our room. We got one king sized bed, but there were two floors and it resembled a cozy cabin type! It was great!

Pros: our stay was very nice. it was in a nice part of venice, quiet but close to all the action. the room was great and the staff were always so helpful in anything we needed. the food was great, and the rooms were clean and comfortable.
