Service excellent. Staff very friendly. Breakfast excellent.
Amazing helpful, friendly staff! Perfect location and very comfortable room, with a lovely breakfast. We loved this place and will definitely return.
Difficult to exaggerate what outstanding service once receives at Al Ponte Antico - the best we have ever had, anywhere. All of the exceptional staff know your name without being introduced and go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure everything is as is should be, with helpful suggestions on places to eat and places to go. They are all a credit to the owner Matteo, who is a superb host and who makes the most amazing cooked eggs one could ever have (from his family hens) and with coffee using his bespoke espresso machine. The pastries made by his wife are also amazing. Beautiful rooms with a wonderful terrace overlooking the Grand Canal and Rialto bridge - taking breakfast there was just magical, just watching the world go by. The hotel is in an excellent location, within easy (15 min) walk to the major sites but also to areas where there are fewer tourists and many authentic Venetian restaurants. The hotel also has a private wharf - a night time private taxi right to the hotel, travelling through the deserted canals at night, down the Grand Canal to be met by the night receptionist Thomas is something we will never forget. Thank you to everyone for a magical stay.
Tucked away at the end of an easy-to-miss alleyway in the winding lanes close to the Realto Bridge, this hotel is a hidden gem. We spent two nights at this property and didn’t want to leave. When we arrived in the afternoon we were greeted directly by the owner, Matteo, a gracious gentleman who proudly showed us the features of his property. It is a nine bedroom boutique hotel with a terrace from the dining room that projects on to the Grand Canal, a stone’s throw away from, and with an unforgettable view of, the famous 12th century Realto Bridge. We ended up spending hours of our two days in Venice on that terrace, watching Venice float by. The rooms are clean and charmingly decorated in old-Venetian. The bathrooms are well-equipped and clean. But the main draw of this hotel is its personnel. Every staff member we encountered was exceptionally helpful and friendly: Alex, David, Oliver, Gigi, and Minelio deserve special mention. They readily gave us useful tips on navigating our stay in Venice, with places to eat and things to do. Breakfast was a real treat. Both mornings we had a full breakfast, with eggs and pancakes prepared by Matteo himself in full apron kit on the second day, perched on the terrace in the frosty morning, but snugly warm from the electric heaters placed there for comfort. A perfect selection of low, mellow music was the icing to make this an unforgettable experience. Matteo, if you read this review, congratulations on a well-run, charming property with superior staffing. We don’t know if we will visit Venice again, but we know where we will stay if we do!
Air conditioning, even in winter, is important for some travellers, for air flow. This hotel is listed as having air conditioning, but apparently it is not available in winter.
With a stay at Hotel Al Ponte Antico, you'll be centrally located in Venice, steps from Grand Canal and 3 minutes by foot from Rialto Bridge. Featured amenities include a computer station, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk.
