of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
We chose this hotel because I just had to be on the Grand Canal for our two nights in Venice. We got a room on the Grand Canal in this elegant palazzo. Would I stay in the hotel again' Absolutely, yes. Would I spring for the canal view again' No, the room does not provide a comfortable spot to watch the world go by. However, I highly recommend the hotel. First of all, location is great. Take a water taxi from the airport and you are there. I can't imaging trying to find some of these Venice hotels dragging suitcases behind me. It's a five minute walk to the Rialto Bridge. Then, there is the vaporetto stop right by the hotel. There is also a gondola station by the hotel. It's in a quieter section of the city with several restaurants and shops within walking distance. I thought the room was quiet. Wifi was efficient. Breakfast was plentiful. We enjoyed the roof top terrace for evening drinks and had lunch at the hotel overlooking the Grand Canal. If you're looking for a classic Venetian experience, this is the place.
"Historic former palace is a nice, very convenient stopover!"
My husband & I took a water taxi to the historic Ca' Sagredo hotel/former palace. The hotel's location is very good. Our room was very large. There are many restaurants nearby so we didn't eat at the hotel. The bedroom walls are covered with pretty tapestry although there are some areas in the room with no solid backing/walls behind the tapestry! So be careful!The restored area of the palace is ornate though. It amazed us that the hotel staff does not make a strong effort in providing information of area interests. Another person posted about the noise above if you stay on the first floor. True! We were awakened to the sound of scuffling chairs and people walking across the room. It was our determination that we were staying in a room right above the morning dining area.
"A Little Disappointing"
I felt that this hotel had many good aspects and a few not so good. The location is great, right on the Grand Canal. Our room was also very good, with a view of the Canal. However, there were a few issues. First, breakfast was substandard. A five star hotel should have a great breakfast. This was one step above horrible. Second, when checking out in the morning I asked the front desk to change a 50 Euro bill. They could not do so since no one had been to the bank that morning. I think it is quite reasonable to expect the front desk to be able to offer change in what is suppose to be a five star hotel. Otherwise, all was fine.
"Mixed feelings about this hotel"
I will admit that I approached this hotel with high hopes but also a degree of scepticism. It had taken me months to commit to my final hotel in my trip - the one here in Venice; in many ways the most important one. TripAdvisor reviews at the time I was choosing were somewhat mixed - which worried me slightly. My reasons for finally choosing were threefold - location, history and they have a library suite (although not an actual library for guests). All 3 of these are still true - the hotel is gorgeous and the location on the Grand Canal is brilliant (between a vaparetto stop and a gondola ferry; 20 minute walk to St Marks). But... When I found myself bring led into an area behind the reception I didn't know enough about the hotel yet to realise that I was away from the main accommodation floors. In fact there were only 2 guest rooms in my area - which appeared to be more of a staff area. That night the main issue with the room revealed itself - a low-level, constant rumbling / vibration - all night long. It stopped in the morning and when I spoke to staff members one thought it might be the laundry (the floor above), while the other said he had never heard of this issue before. This was contradicted that evening when the noise started again and the evening staff member said he would ask for the kitchen / laundry ventilation to be turned off at 10pm. Blessed peace - but... Apparently it also turned off my ventilation as well (at least it seemed that way). So the choice was between quiet and air. The third night I just opened my window when the room became stuffy and airless, and covered my ears when the noise started again around 5.30am. Most of the time I found the staff friendly and helpful, but information needed to be extracted rather than being volunteered - the WiFi code, accessing the upper terrace, the trip to Murano and so on. If you didn't know to ask... There was little information about the hotel in the room itself as well. Would I stay there again' No. Is it a beautiful hotel in a great location with usually helpful staff' Yes. So why my reaction' I'm still not entirely sure myself except I did not really experience the feeling of belonging that I got in many other hotels on this trip. The fact that I didn't get a full nights sleep in the three nights I was there may also be contributing somewhat. I shall try to remember the positives - which is why this has gone up to 4 stars - although it has fluctuated as I wrote.
"Nice hotel in great location"
Wonderful experience in this great hotel. Fantastic location still in walking distance to most sights but away from the crowds. The reception staff was delightfully attentive. Only downsides - the mattress was a little firm for my liking and the concierge mistakenly booked our train to Florence for the wrong day. Lesson learned - check your tickets!
