The staff was very rude. Not the standard for a 5 star hotel.
Location, location, location. Felt small & discreet. I cannot fault it. (I did not have any meals there, however).
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. Everything was great
Everythig was absolutely perfect!!!!!!!
When we were checking-out the money for our staying the hotel took twice from my credit card.
fine hotel with fair price -
Location of the hotel. Room Front desk staff not freindly though!! Charge eight euro for room service whatever the order is!
Excellent staff help, great position on St Marco, and very near excellent shopping.lso water taxis available right on the doorstep Because of the atreet , the rooms on the canal can be quite noisy.
The hotel was in a good position which enabled us to move around easily. Hotel staff were polite and efficient. Hotel offered 5 star quality and service,
Conceive is well trained & good -Hotel charges for hot water €7/-!! in room for taking my medicine/ Quality of food for Breakfast not of high grade - similar to canteen
Location ... close to San Marco Square Service was poor. Room facing is poor.
great location, helpful staff, beautiful rooms, very comfortable bed
The Rooms were excellent, clean, comfortable, excellently furnished and location Th bar area seating was too open, the middle bar had a television on which was not showing much and should idealy be turned off and replaced with music. Lack of complementary water in the room. The instructions to get to the hotel are inaccurate and hotel could be more clearly sign posted
Location Friendly Staff Comfort Cleanliness Did not receive Early Mornight Call on morning of departure We had to awaken staff to pay our Bill - not a bad complaint Lucky we had our own Alarm Clock or flights would have been missed First Class hotel otherwise would re - book and recommend
This was a lovely stay in venice, the new refurbished room was excellent, The staff were very friendly and helpfull, no breakfast as that part of the hotel was closed at the time of our stay, but was not a problem as it is close to many resturants & cafe's. I would book this hotel if I went to venice again.
The location The aircondition didn't work well,so the room was a bit cold.
Very nice and fancy place Nothing everything was excellent
Our room was great. It was big, we were on the top floor so we had really high ceilings and lots of windows since we had a corner room. The location was great... close to the Grand Canal and San Marco's Square. The room very new and clean... we loved everything about it. When I see how expensive Venice is in general the hotel rate doesn't seem as unreasonable when you see what you get. When we booked the breakfast room was not finished so breakfast was not included in our rate. They offered us breakfast at the hotel for 15 euros per person. We thought it was a little expensive, but one morning we tried to find breakfast on our own on the streets of Venice and never found anything that good and it was still expensive. Venice is simply an expensive city.
The fact that we got what we asked for
We checked in early and the hotel provided a complimentary upgrade to a Canal View room, so we experienced the "post card" view of Venice from the room. The bathroom was 5-stars. We enjoyed our stay, but the breakfast could be improved to match the overall quality of the hotel.
The degree of engagement which respected our privacy needs. The location and comfort in heating, need for a quiet room and range of fresh foods at breakfast.
I thought at 370 euro a night breakfast should be included,I noticed American package holiday clients were being given a voucher for breakfast.
Westin Europa & Regina is a wonderful place right on the canal with an amazing staff and facilities Nothing
The hotel staff were cold and rude. The room service was very poor.
the whole experience,the terrace off our room was perfect the cost of the cheese and ham toasties at 4:00 am !!
Spacious Room, Ease of access to St Marco Square and bottle of champagne was given for our special stay. Booked a deluxe double room but was given a room on first floor facing another building which is under total renovation, noise starts from 8:00AM, can't sleep well and there is no view from this room, not even city view. Ask for ice buckets at 11:30PM, No one picks the call in Service Express.
The hotel is beautiful like a palace. Location is excellent. They give you the feeling that your money is the most important thing for them. The ask you to sign several forms, preauthorize you credit card, and, it's a shame, lock your minibar during the last night of your stay!
The dependent at the lobby was rude. The room they gave was not ready, there was an empty champaigne bottle with the corresponding dirty glasses. To make matters worse, it was time consuming to resolve. The room we ended up with had two full size beds together, with separate linen for each, instead of a king/queen size bed. The waiters at the bar and common areas were rude. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary. In 30 years this is the most we ever paid for accommodations AND the worst service we've received.
The location was wonderful! The attitude of some of the staff was snooty and the check in and check out process took forever. We were getting off a cruise coming in and there were many people arriving at the the same time but leaving I was left standing for 10 minutes while the clerk fiddled on her computer and noone else was around. To be fair it was the same woman. The conciere also had staff that was either extremely helpful or curt and unresponsive to inquires. The staff was either very pleasant or very disdainful.
The Hotel has excellent location and very good service There are multiple type of 'Canal view' rooms that may not always fit the description.
Very luxurious. Staff wonderful. Central Location on the canal with superb views and private water taxi station right in front. Room service excellent! The Westin sets the bar very high! TV channel selection poor.
This hotel was really very great, exactly as you see in the photos and can boast about it's location and all of its qualities. Overall i could only find very minimal points to be picky about which are: 1. the hotel is quite tricky to find (as with a lot of places in Venice), you would think directions would therefore be highlighted/mentioned on their website or when you are sent your booking details. 2. Half of the the breakfast staff were useless and not concerned with helping at all (the other half were completely the opposite and couldn't do enough to help and make it as peasant as possible). 3. The hotel decor and furnishings were probably very finely done at one stage, but things are starting tyo tire and wall trimmings etc starting to peel away, scratches and bumps in too many places.
Friendly, great service,comfortable room Difficult to find hotel
The location was excellent and staff was very helpful and supportive. The hotel is well maintained and charming. The room was well serviced. The hotel met all our expectations--beautiful premises in a charming part of Venice, well connected to visit near and somewhat distant sites of interest to tourists. Yes, the wall was water stained. I informed the manager by a note and received no confirmation or follow up.
If you like the boutique looks with no essence; then you will not mind this hotel. Nothing really works and the staff don't know how to fix it. ,If you like the looks and
Luxury hotel Location in the heart of Service Modern ambience Great breakfast Service was 5 star They helped us book museum tickets, dinner reservations etc Concierge Raphaela was just amazing No negatives.
Location Internet and telephone net were very weak Casanova side was not good to stay
When making our plan to visit Venice we did not know that the place is an island. The sight of water scared us at first on arrival .It became fun and visit to wonderland. The hotel met our expectation as big and reputable shops are within easy reach. we enjoyed our breakfast which provided good scenery of Venice. Nothing
Excellent location - 3 minutes to San Marco, good services, spa facilities in other location (boat transportation to spa), expensive services (wireless internet - 20 Euro, restaurant dinner for two - 250 Euro)
Location is very good. It is a expensive hotel, the service was not very nice with the exception of concierge, that they did a great gob. The shower was leaking water so every time you use it, there was water all over the restroom, the hair dryer did not work, Just details that you take for granted at that price range hotels.
I stayed at the Casanova Suites which adjacent to the Bauers and for a family of four was great!! The location is just the greatest. The rooms were huge and they offered everything including 2 bathrooms!!! If you are traveling with young adults and spending time in Venice, this place is it. It was not cheap and it shouldnt be but well worth it!! Your on the main canal and yds from St Marks square. I will recomend it to my friends. Needed more TV sets in the bedrooms.
Very easy walking distance to everything. Breakfast was included in our stay. Champagne was served on Sunday. Great variety of foods to select from and coffee was amazing. The view of the Grand Canal cannot be any better. Hotel room key and safe were old world.
Very friendly and professional initial welcome. Helpful advice from concierge
Location and personal attention
Profesionalism and kindness of staff.Location on Canal Grande 2 minutes walking distance from Canal Grande;
Well appointed. Classic beauty with modern convenience. The heat control!
Location, food, shopping. Find the makers to see the range of fresh fish. Go to a restaurant with fresh fish on ice displayed outside. Excellent! WiFi was not available in the room. Computer in lobby did not work. Internet through TV in room did not work.
Its Venice! whats not to like???!!! But really, anything there is overpriced, but the staff was nice, our room was just fine, good size, clean. The restaurant was very good and its just the best location! They have a great outdoor area where you can listen to the piano every night while you eat or have a cocktail.....just wonderful. I didnt like that it was across from Giorgio Armani, literally! Spent too much!!!!
Staff members are polite and friendly, rooms were clean and spacious. Had their own dock and good location close to San Marco Square. Would recommend.
Location and the fact that they upgraded our room from Standard double to Deluxe double having a canal view whih was exciting and pleasant. Nothing
Friendly staff, interior decoration of the room and lobby The hotel is currently under construction and I could not see out of my window
its location. I was very disappointed with the room and bathroom , extremely small and in my opinon it was very expensive. it was very misleading and for almost 600 euro it was not worth it. Was expecting a little luxury !!!!!
The room given to us was amazing! It was clean, the beds were comfortable and we had the best view of one of the canals! The breakfast was very nice for italian standards, various pastries, fresh cappuccino, toast, meat and cheese, eggs, bacon and fruit and yogurt. The cleaning lady tried to come in in the morning even though we only stayed one night and hadn't checked out yet.
The location was perfect. There was an incident where some waste water was dumped in the canal when we had breakfast on the terass. could have been timed better as the smell what not nice.
very good hotel, nice location, good facilities, good customer service. no
Location/View - Right on the Grand Canal in Venice next to a Vaporetta stop. Amazing..... I expected a balcony large enough to sit on but was surprised that it was standing room only. The plus was that the windows provided a great view without having to be on the balcony.
We loved the room The Mosquitos in the room at night
The hotel had a fabulous location -- right on the Grand Canal, not far from the Rialto bridge and directly at a Vapparetto stop. We checked in very early and not only was our room ready for us, but they upgraded us to a delux room with a canal view and a large balcony. The room was a decent size, well maintained, and all in working order. The breakfast room is a bit small when weather doesn't permit the use of the outside terrace for breakfast, so you may have to wait a few minutes for a table at breakfast.
The Hotel was close to the main attractions of San Marco and was located right on the Grand Canal which was lovely. The price vs the room quality really did not compare. I would expect a lot better for the amount I paid for the room. I'm glad I was there only for one night. However, the staff were very friendly and very helpful.
Polite, helpful and friendly and perfectly located for exploring the sites of Venice.
We arrived at 5.30am and the hotel was so simply to find. We got off at San Angelo and just walked a few steps to the right and there was the hotel. Our flight was diverted and we spent the night travelling by train so it was nice not to have to look for the hotel when we got to Venice Drinks from the bar were expensive
the location is excellent but the personal and the service attitude is outstanding we loved being there. it would be ideal to have more space in bedrooms.
I taught the location was perfect,staff where very friendly,room was nice, breakfast was lovely. over priced
Convenience next to the San Angelo vaporetto station. Literally 10 steps! Large bed room. Good breakfast choices. Friendly staff (although some with a chip on their shoulder). Unacceptable pillows (for the money), shower activation requires above average mechanical skill, not all lights were working. Warped carpeting on stairs, broken flooring in the garden breakfast area.
Fabulous location as No1 Vaporetto stops on the doorstep, deal for older people and so close to all sights. Views from balconies junior suites are spectacular, ideal for first time visitors to Venice. Rooms are simple as can be expected in most Italian cities, take a portable kettle if you like a cuppa in the morning..no tea-making facilities in Italian hotels.Don't expect to sit on the junior suite balconies they are only tiny and purely decorative. Absolutely loved this hotel much more personal than the other big hotels, classical music piped through the hotel. Very quiet. Breakfast of scrambled egg, sausage and bacon along with other choices. Staff friendly and helpful. No Wi-Fi yet or internet use. Stairway carpets are a bit loose and could be dangerous to older people, also bedroom rugs are a hazard as they slip on the marble, we asked to have ours removed which the staff were more than happy to do. Bed pillows are a bit hard, we asked for extra which were delivered within the hour on the whole the hotel fixed any complaints quickly and always with a smile
atomosphere and comfort, very accomodating. Good service from staff
Everything was amazing at the Palace Bonvecchiati, location is great, Staff so helpful! Would definately go back!
What I preferred in the hotel was the location. The room was nice, spacious and clean. The view from the room was not good. The breakfast was poor.
location, comfort and service. the coffee at breakfast was awful. strange when everything else was so good but even the germans were drinking tea instead!
The rooms are well designed and the bedding and towels etc exemplary I think the breakfast could be much improved, it was a let down.Making the Internet connection was difficult.
Great location, great staff and nice room. For the price, the breakfast was quite poor. Needed to be more choice of fruit, breads and cereals.
The staff was very courteous and helpful. The room was more than I expected and very comfortable.
Location, Confort No Complaints
Went to celebrate 20th anniversary. Stayed in a 3 star hotel in Venice before and this was certainly more posh and the price tag reflected that as well. Nice amenities that we were not aware of: breakfast was included at the restaurant, 30 minutes per room of private sauna, jacuzzi or steam sauna time per day. Hotel is a 5 minute walk to St. Mark's Square etc. Staff are very well dressed and say the right words, but I never sensed any authenticity, warmth, friendliness, etc.. I asked for assistance on several occasions from different people related to getting to the airport, a restaurant recommendation, directions, etc and the responses were typically curt and robotic. The only exception was the porter/bellhop from the Philippines, he was great. I would expect more from a 4-star hotel when I'm paying $400-500 per night. It was as if they didn't like their jobs. The same experience was noted in the restaurant which was located in the sister hotel next door. Doubt I will return given the opportunity.
the quality and good taste of the decore. the sauna and swimming pool not working and the lack of apology or compensation for it
Fantastic hotel with a stunning location in Venice.
Very quiet room and very stylish/modern interiors. Breakfast was very good, too. Not particularly
The best hotel in Athens. We ended up eating both at the roof top Restaurant and Main follow breakfast room and had excellent food, service and views. Highly recommend! Surrounding neighborhood wasn't very upscale
Very helpful and friendly staff, excellent and quiet location, well equpped and comfortable room with a beautiful view Bathroom on the small side
location,design,very friendly staff nothing
kindness of the staff they where working in our hallway with more than 5 persons, ceilings opened etc.
Good location. Staff friendly & helpful. Breakfast excellent. Service always readily available. Room small & expensive for what it was. Air conditioning iffy.
I thought the hotel staff was extremely pleasant and accomodating. Everything was terrific, however, there was one item to note. One evening while sitting in the bar lounge we ordered an appetizer. For 30 Euro's we got what one could only describe as a match-stick sized spring roll. I thought the portion and price were not consistent. However, the breakfast bar was fantastic.
the place is not five stars it s three stars. The terrace is not covered so the birds take all your food, the bathrooms are tiny and the water spills all over, the internet slow.
i like the design of the hotel and the staff were very friendly and very helpful No
friendly staff, excellent breakfast (very nice terrace!), nice room (though a bit small), good design,
Very central location to all that Venice offers and yet the right side of the Grande Canal to get away from all of it and unwind. Right next to Salute water taxi stop. Room was fabulous and staff were very attentive
Location is good We were placed in what is called "the Annex" - never stay there - it is accessed by a dimly lit alley way filled with garbage - no evalators and no view whatsoever. The Hotel Rialto should be embarrassed to count this as part of their establishment.
friendly staff supply of gluten free food
location and price no
staff were amazing
Staff was very rude We had lot of luggage there was no one to help take the luggage through the stairs. Charged extra fee If 2 person stay in the room. Gave us 2 twin bed room.
Perfect location. Bathroom was spotlessly clean. Small room with no view - not what we thought we had booked. Breakfast could have had a wider selection. Interior beginning to look a bit tired, and we only had one pillow each. Still cant understand Italian reticence to use duvets rather than blankets.
The staff is not customer service oriented. AC was not working and we were above 40C (110F). Couldn't sleep at all
Great location, nice and hysteric hotel
There was nothing tol like about the hotel itself. The location was good. The hotel was not clean by any stretch of the imagination.Didnt like the dirt on the walls or the mould in our bathroom.
What was there not to like; an excellent location, well appointed rooms complete with beautiful Murano glass chandeliers, polite staff who were multi-lingual with excellent communications skills. Hotel Rialto is an ideal location for exploring Venice. The hotel is central to all major tourism attractions as well as shopping, restaurants etc. Water buses and water taxis are readily accessible from right outside the front door, making the hotel particularly easy to find for first time visitors to the city. I'd highly recommend Hotel Rialto. One very minor gripe, but not enough to spoil an otherwise enjoyable weekend stay; visitors to the hotel are offered a complimentary visit to a glass factory on the island of Murano. Guests should be aware that there is no such thing as a free meal, or in this case a free trip. You will be expected to put your hand in your pocket and purchase some of the very expensive glass products. Having said that, the glass is spectacular and you may well want to make a purchase on its merit, just be advised that this is a hard sell. Expect to budget at least €200 though it would be easy to spend much more.
the quality of the room, the central location and the helpful staff
The location is great you are literally next to the Plaza and the Basilica. There are many great places to eat and you can walk anywhere. Also, the location is close to the water buses and taxi's. It's not glamorous but serviceable for a few nights. Rooms can get a little tight and getting to your room can be an adventure
location, our room 121 is biggest one, bed cover is clean a bit of smelly, everything is historied, desk, chair, sofa, even bed sheet (but the underlying bed cover is clean)
Friendly, helpful staff. Close to major attractions in Venice. The hotel was spread out over several buildings. It had joining corridors on different levels and so there was a lot of walking, stairs and lifts to negotiate to access your room.
Loved the location,very central. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The air conditioning throughout was brilliant. Enjoyed our stay very much. The breakfast was disappointing . We found the selection and quantity quite poor.
very good location for visiting any place in Venezia
The room was excellent with a good view. There was not a good selection of food for vegetarians, which was disappointing considering the cost of staying at the hotel.
very good design of hotel breakfast was not good enough
Central position Breakfast very basic for the price.
Good Location, Very Good Rooms
Lovely room with good facilities including jacuzzi Excellent location Very limited breakfast Kept waiting about 45minutes before we were taken to our room after we checked in Staff could have been friendlier
The facilities were beautiful. I was disappointed that we could not receive a late check out after my running of the Venice Marathon. I was told that at 1pm there were no rooms availible for a quick shower.
Very easy access to transport both public and private
Exceptionally beautiful building, gracious and low-key atmosphere of tasteful opulence.
Service was good Cost of mini bar and breakfast was not freshly cooked
the junior suite was very tasteful with nice size bed and room on arrival we met someone at reception who was not very pleasant but the next morning we did not have to deal with him and the rest of the staff were lovely throughout out stay. The hotel does not have a great bar facility but the setting and the food in the restaurant on the canal was excellant and matched its 5 star rating. I would stay again as it is only getting on its feet with opened only four months.
The hotel is beautiful, like staying in a museum. Having breakfast surrounded by frescoes was a unique experience 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
i liked the design of the hotel the intenal and the external and the servies of the hotel its one of the best hotels
Imaginative use of an old building, with beautiful public spaces and spacious bedrooms, first-rate facilities
The hotel is beautifull, and clean A bar to have a drink would be nice. The hotel is a little far away from St Marco.
Excellent location and superb view on Grand canal from my room. The room number was 103. I would really recommend it. Breakfast was rather modest. Also as some reviewer already said the hotel lacks atmosphere. It is all too silent. Interente is bloody expensive but one can use Venice connected for EUR 5 a day.
Beautiful building, location, and room Staff did not have a very helpful or accommodating attitude, we were surprised to find out, and we had several experiences of not feeling the service was good with front desk staff particularly. Orange juice at breakfast not included and charged 14 euros a day for 2 fresh orange juices.
Location & staff. The staff is excellent and very friendly. Cost.
Great location, attentive staff and service was great. The bar menu on the terrace could have offered some more choice and was a little expensive but the views were amazing. Would have been nice to have some wine in the mini bar and maybe some spirits available.
The position of the hotel is right in the centre and it takes nearly 3 minutes to st.Marks sqr. And also the private transfer from the airport was so comfortable.
Wonderful settings, excellent location, a beautiful building. Enjoyed the delicious "Corto Maltese" cocktail at the fabulous bar. The cost of the breakfast buffet at 110 euro per person a bit high to digest !
Meals on the balcony overlooking the Grand Canal and the location. No
Excellent service and hotel location. Constantly felt a part of Venice
location location location the hotel staff - do like they care but they really don't!
The rooms were just like Venice itself - fairytale like. Our daughter aged 8 felt like a princess. Our room overlooked a rather ugly covered inner courtyard.
I liked the style of the hotel; it so modern. I also liked the cleanliness of the hotel. The room was so small and narrow, and the food although was expensive but was not so good.
A little bit of luxury!! The interior design was beautiful, the bar/restaurant and bedrooms all were beautifully kept with lovely little details, particularly liked the complimentary drinks and amazing nibbles on arrival! The bed was very comfortable and liked the luxury linen sheets to! Overall a fantastic small boutique hotel.
