Nice building. Good location. Awful service.
Awful service. Attitude of no help. Yelling at a family who wanted WiFi. Wouldn’t help us with a phone call. Felt like they were doing us a favor to be there. All for the highest priced hotel of our trip. Lovely building, good location. Very uncomfortable beds.

beautiful hotel. great location, water taxi right around the corner.

Poor 2.0
No such thing as a guarantee!
All I can say, is that when you book as a couple, you run the great potential of being moved to a "sister" hotel, due to unexpected (and unbelievable) "unfortunate water damage" to your previously guaranteed booked room. It was obvious to us that we were being relocated in order to accommodate a larger group, who were to occupy several rooms. The little guy finishes last. We were denied a chance to visually see the alleged water-damaged room, and had no recourse, but to accept the alternative offered. Who needs to drag luggage around Venice on a Friday afternoon, seeking another hotel? We specifically selected this hotel due to its proximity to the Alla Laguna San Stae station, hoping not to have to transport luggage for any unnecessarily long distances, since we are both senior citizens. We were moved to a hotel two water bus stops away, to a less desirable area of Venice, close to the bus station. And during the transfer, the hotel representatives, Davide and his colleague had us enter through the exit portal to enter the boat without paying for the transfer. Although the room in the sister hotel was rather grand, we needed to get up earlier in order to be moved back to the San Stae station on the morning of our departure, causing us to be deprived of a relaxing breakfast. Booking this hotel is a gamble.

This hotel was amazing! We received an outstanding service from every staff member. The location of the hotel is right next to a bus stop and only 20 minutes walk from St. Marks Square. We were very kindly upgraded to the presidential suite for free! That was just the icing on top of the stay. Thank you so much to all of the staff at the Palazzo Giovanelli!

Great hotel, quiet location
Very quiet but close to local restaurants and easy walk to major sites such as Rialto Bridge, St. Mark’s square etc. Vaporetto stop very convenient but we walked everywhere. Courteous staff was always helpful. Room upgrade was wonderful!

This is our second stay at Palazzo Giovanelli. The staff is terrific. They are caring and friendly. The rooms are amazing and exceptionally clean. We love this location because it is out of the tourist area, yet certainly close enough to walk anywhere.

Soaked Arrival
We arrived at night in a thunderstorm. We got off the boat on the Grand Canal. We knew we were close but saw no sign. We had never been to Venice. VERY frustrating trying to find the entrance in the dark and rain.We were soaked dragging our luggage by the time we found the entrance down a very narrow "street". THEY NEED A SIGN!!! Otherwise the stay was pleasant.
