The Palazzo Gottardi is situated on Strada Nuova, in the heart of Venice's old city centre, near innumerable places of interest: the ancient Jewish ghetto (which is near an area full of inns and trattorias offering typical Venetian cooking), the famous Rialto market, the Santa Sofia wharf, and, of course, the Piazza San Marco and the church of Santa Maria della Salute, from where one can see a wonderful view of San Marco Bay.
of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
I'm fairly well travelled, always use tripadvisor before booking but rarely write reviews. I'm on day 2 of a 4 day trip to Venice - Booked the Ca' Gottardi a week ago after a lot of research and I feel compelled to write this review as this hotel is so wonderful. The staff couldn't be more welcoming and friendly (despite me being fairly demanding travelling with my 4 month old baby), the location is ideal and the room and hotel itself is 5 star standard. Incredible value for money. This is my second trip to Venice but this hotel is making me tempted to come again.
The gentleman at the desk was so friendly and helpful, breakfast was good, slept like a log despite being on a busy road- you wouldn't have know. The bed was so comfy. Wonderful location for exploring Venice. They even lend you umbrellas in case of rain. Will highly recommend!
What a great hotel, the service was outstanding the breakfast was great, small selection but enough to start the day of sight seeing. Fabio was FABIOLOUS as well as all the other staff.! It clearly is a gem of a hotel and when we return to Venice ( and we will) we shall book this hotel again, we cannot recommend this hotel enough, literaly 2 minutes away from water taxis that take you all over Venice! THANK YOU for a wonderful stay!
This hotel is really good. Me and my wife really enjoyed our stay. The staff is extremely helpfull, they have snacks, coffe and tea almost all day. When we had arrive, the recepcionist realised that we are so tired that make everything fast to give us some fast and immediatly rest. All that we need it was provide. Also, it's really close to the ca' d'oro station (vaporetto), which facilitate the mobility in the city, when you need to go to the train station, airport or anywhere not so close. For last, great bed, really confortable.
"Beautiful and unique city. Wonderful hotel."
A small, intimate,delightful boutique hotel, situated by a canal in the heart of Venice. Wonderfully helpful and friendly staff made our 4 night stay a joy. The hotel was clean and the rooms comfortable and decorated in a tastefully Venetian style. Breakfast was just right with an assortment of pastries and meats and if you are British, cereal to choose from. An endless supply of coffee is provided. Staff were solicitous and keen to help and all spoke English well, so no language barrier. If Wi-Fi is of concern to you, it's a little iffy in the rooms due to the age of the building but really that should be of little concern when you are visiting this culturally rich city. You can get Wi-Fi in the lobby and a lot of restaurants offer free Wi-Fi if this is of real importance to you. The hotel is ideally situated for visiting all the landmarks and sight seeing highlights, but if you are feeling frisky, you can wander the streets and get lost and still have an amazing time-Venice is a city that assaults all your senses in a vibrantly, stylish way. We didn't use a gondola-they are just too expensive-so we walked everywhere. You will certainly reach your 10,000 steps in a day very easily!! This trip was to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and I couldn't fault it for making the event a special one. We went at the beginning of October and the weather that week was perfect-beautiful sunny skies to highlight the colour of the city below. It was fairly crowded but not too bad. I have heard that it can be relentlessly busy in the summer months and incredibly hot-which has a knock on effect with the smell of the canals apparently but this was not the case for us. We found the city to be very clean. Thanks to all the staff for making our stay such a fulfilling, comfortable,happy and carefree one.
