Palazzo with Classo for family and friends
One my favourite Venice addresses. 10 minutes walk to the waterfront and with amazing restaurants and local grocery stores just steps below. No tourist crowds here. Quiet gardens, lovely views, and oh that jasmine in the air. Be sure to block those windows at night though - sun is up by 5 AM in Venice.

Lovely palazzo in quiet part of Venice. Room given to our family to accommodate 4 family members was spacious and clean. Very nice establishment, we felt like we stepped back in time at this beautiful, historical, yet still modern hotel.

The Palazzo is unique, room was large and comfortable....lovely garden area for sitting. The location was fantastic, with local cafes, and even a band and dancing one night. Recommend this hotel.
Lisa, ca2 night trip
Good 6.0
Liked: the idea of being in a palazzo, with interesting details, and the working class and authentic neighbourhood location away from tourists Dislike: the apathetic staff. Outside of the check in (which was polite but far from warm and friendly) amd the check out (which was the same), no one really was there. My partner mentioned that it felt like we were intruding somehow. The staff were in an office sittinf facing away from guests. It was nice, though, to be able to come and go with no need for unnecessary pleasantries. The main hall was beautiful but, for some reason, it was in disarray the 3 nights we stayed there. it seems like this place might also be an event space due to the size and the way they had all the sofas in one little room and the main hall almost empty. Candles were everywhere but not lit so sitting on the patio at night was dark.

Great Stay
Very handy location, note nearest ferry stop is Celestia and still a 350m walk and 3 bridges. Large rooms and reception staff very helpful. Note can only check in before 8pm as staff then close front office.

Hidden hotel with a real feel for Venetian history
The building dates from the 1300s. Wow! There is a decent elevator, but all the steps are fun, too. The staff is pleasant and very helpful. There is a feel of rubbed and faded splendor, but the bathroom was modernized and easily managed. The area is full of narrow alleys filled with history — fun to just wander. Things like water taxis are conjured up ahead of time with full disclosure about the cost. We arrived after dusk and had trouble finding the hotel, but there is always staff on hand and willing to help. Our only real complaint was pillows that are flat as a board.

We were very late in arriving due to train delays. It was my wedding anniversary and they made sure that there was a dozen long stem red roses in the suite per my husband’s request. Great customer service!

Daniele at the hotel was very helpful. If you know that this property is located in a quiet residential neighborhood, and not in a touristic area, it is a nice place to stay. Access to the biennale sites is very good.
