Great location. Close to all the tourist sites but far enough away from the day trippers. Our room was huge and over looked one of canals. The breakfast was good.
Hotel in great location, very close to St Marks Square but felt very quiet, away from hustle and bustle. Staff very friendly and informative, yet ambience felt very discreet and personal.
The staff were very professional and helpful. Breakfast was excellent and the server was really nice. One morning when I slept through breakfast, she brought me a cafe latte and warm croissants to the loading dock entrance which has a place to sit and drink/eat and is totally charming. Our room was very large. The hotel is very centrally located and you can walk to mostly anywhere. One of the hotel entrances is on a canal, so it is accessible by water taxi. If you don't mind paying the extra euro's this is really nice.
Although we had 2 rooms and plenty of space, the pull-out couch was uncomfortable enough that my 6 year old wouldn't sleep in it (she ended up sleeping with us - but at least the bed was big). We had no view at all, but when opening the windows, at least we could get a lot of natural light. I didn't like the dark decor in general, but this was part of the style of the hotel.
We really enjoy our Jr. Suit room. Spacious and beautifully decorated with comfort. Great service in general. More specifically, a lady staff named Sylvia who was servicing us in the breakfast table. She's extremely helpful and attentive to meet every customer's need. The staff at reception also recommended a very good restaurant - Ae Sconte, nearby the hotel, which provide very good service and excellent quality of food. It really made our stay in Venice close to perfect.
We stayed at the junior suite. The room, cleanliness and the comfort was perfect. Staff is friendly and location is just between StMark and Rialto, only 5 minutes on foot to each. Satisfied with the breakfast as well.
Room service menu is poor and limited. At the first place it's very difficult to find the hotel. It's normal in Venice, however the instructions on the website should be improved.
...the small streets around the hotel are a bit noisy during weekdays.
The hotel was amazing, Lovely room, views of a small canal and perfect location. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Venice and would stay there again if I went back.
Excellent service from all staff, good English speaking and will help you get the most out of your time there. You are 5 mins walk from St. Marks Square, but not close enough to have too many tourists milling around the hotel so is actually very peaceful. Our suite was over looking one of the canals and you can hear the guys running the gondalas singing/whistling as they're going by. Fantastic location.
It was expensive, but after experiencing the service from the staff, seeing the location and some of the other hotels in the area, I'd say it is definately worth it.
Perfect and clean. Perfect design. Location is brilliant. Staff are very friendly. Luxury hotel. Rooms with perfect heating and AC.
WiFi signal is not powerful enough and it is not possible to use it from the room.
This hotel exceeded our expectations. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable. The bathrooms were very large and spotless. The staff was professional and friendly. The breakfast buffet was delicious and had offerings we did not see elsewhere in Italy. The hotel is a classy mix of new design and old fashioned hospitality. Our family of 5 with 2 teenage girls and grandmother loved it. We stayed for 3 nights in August. Quite close to St. Mark's square and Rialto bridge. Not noisy at night.
My husband and I were moved from a large room to a smaller room because of water problems which we did not see. However, we were compensated with a large bowl of fruit which we used at lunchtimes. Considering our rate, I was rather surprised at the huge size of our initial room. I am wondering if they put us in the wrong room, or if, in fact, they really did have a water problem.
The staff were very friendly. Hotel facilities are very good quality but could be organised in a better way. I'm quite satistied with the stay.
The room design wasn't as good as service&quality.
Hotel staff were amazing and friendly. Fantastic suite and offer a nice free continental breakfast.
Very hard to find on the streets of Venice. They need a sign put up like some of the other hotels have.
I thought the Aqua Palace was an superb hotel in an excellent location. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. The staff were lovely. Had a wonderful stay in Vience & this hotel made the holiday even more perfect.
All the staff were extremely helpful. Nothing was too much for them. When we asked for transport to pick us up from the airport..it was there ready and waiting for us. When we asked for tables to be booked in restaurants...not only were they booked but the best tables were reserved for us. My husband and I celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary in Venice. The Aqua Palace and it's wonderful staff helped to make it an anniversary to remember.
The bed was a little to hard and the showers could have been a little bit hotter.
Excellent welcome and attention from all staff. A beautifully finished building with excellent furnishings. Real character in the finishes and room facilities. Great breakfast choice and service. We would thoroughly recommend the Aqua Palace.
