Amazing hotel very close to Piazza San Marco. It's very luxurious and has fantastic service. They hold parties in the basement nightclub on weekends. On check-out day, we were served a glass of champagne when they saw we were waiting. Excellent breakfast buffet on a terrace with spectacular views. The rooms are very nice and decorated in pure Venetian style.
With a friendly staff and wonderful rooms, Boscolo Venezia offers a stay fit for a king. It has all the latest amenities and even a private boat that takes you to the Piazza San Marco and Murano. The garden is amazing and it's perfect to sit out and relax after travelling up and down the streets of Venice. The final price is high, but worth it.
The Campo Santa Maria Formosa Hotel is set in a neo-Gathic palace overlooking a canal full of floating gondolas. It's close to the main attractions of the city. The hotel has 9 rooms all named after famous Venetian painters. My stay was fantastic.
The first thing to point out about this hotel is that it has the great advantage of a very central location. It stands on the corner of Via Roma and the Via Teatro Filarmonica, leading to Piazza Bra. It's a three-star hotel with large rooms, a more than satisfying breakfast, and friendly staff. The perfect choice for a stay in Verona.
This small Best Western hotel chain is accessible from the city by foot or the train station. Functional decor, friendly staff and good breakfast are characteristics of this simple but recommended establishment located in a small quiet street in the historic center of Verona. The room had a narrow courtyard and the vibration of the air conditioning machine was somewhat annoying.
The Centurion Hotel is located in Venice, and the easiest way to get there - or at least, the way that we got there - is by taxi. Upon arrival at the hotel, our first impression was better than good. The room was great, although next time we'll ask for a room overlooking the Grand Canal. The vaporetto "buses" or, if you can afford it, the taxis, are the best way to get around - they'll take you to your destination, and you're sure to enjoy the trip. You can also walk: we walked to the Piazza San Marco, and it was worth it, though it was very hot. I recommend eating at the hotel; if you book in advance, you can dine right on the Canal, making for a romantic evening. There are 3 or 4 parking spaces, always watched by someone. The only catch is that you have to leave your keys at the hotel.
It is a small but lovely little hotel in a busy area of Venice. It is superbly located for people taking cruises because its close to both the port and airport. Besides being close to the main roads and vaporetto routes. The building is a restoration and has all the amenities you could need. Breakfast under the pergola was great, and the fresh croissants would make anyone hungry. Rooms are small but cozy, and the staff is very, very friendly. I'd stay there again.
The Starhotels Splendid Venice is a four-star hotel which actually seems more like a five star. Its location near Rialto Bridge and St Mark's Square is perfect. We stayed there for a couple of nights in a private room overlooking a quiet canal. The service was impeccable! Breakfast was very good but the variety was somewhat limited. A couple of negatives: Internet access is not free and the room felt very small.
Hotel Des Bains is a landmark hotel that inspired Thomas Mann's novel, Death in Venice, and was later used in the movie adaptation. The movie is a true classic so visiting this hotel has become an essential part of any trip to Venice. Sadly, I visited a few days after the fire of February 2008, so the hotel was closed. The private beach no longer resembles that of the film...the classic blue and white awnings have vanished and have been replaced by some rather questionable huts. In any case, it's worth visiting the hotel, a true landmark in this most romantic of cities.
The Locandiera is a small hotel only a few steps from Plaza de San Marcos, which is without a doubt the true heart of Venice. I'm highlighting it mainly for its great value / price ratio, something hard to find in a destination as touristy as Venice. Of course, this isn't a palaco overlooking the Grand Canal, but the building and rooms are quite charming. I think it is rather practical to have the hotel on the main island of Venice, so you save a lot of time traveling by boat. To get to the hotel from the airport is as simple as taking the boat "bus" called Alilaguna (alilaguna.it) and getting off at San Zaccaria, just prior to the Molo de San Marcos.
The truth is that I really recommend it, since it's located a few meters from Piazza San Marco. But at the same time, it overlooks a quiet and peaceful canal. The only thing that breaks the silence are the bells of the Campanile, which is a real luxury. In Venice, everything is just talk, but not this apartment. It's part of the San Marco hotel chain. And our apartment was 121. The photos are of the views from our room.
The AC Hotel Padova is one of the best hotels in the city of Padova. It is a modern hotel with 98 rooms, and 40 indoor and outdoor parking spaces available. It is near the historic centre of the city, allowing guests to quickly reach the train station, the exhibition centre, and the airport (just 30km away). A good choice for business or pleasure.
It was my first visit to Venice after returning from Eastern Europe and I had the feeling of coming home (I am Argentinian). The human quality of Ms. Patricia, the manager, and her staff makes this place is a heaven for travelers. I'll never forget!
The Collegio Armeno Moorat Raphael is located in the Palazzo Zenobio, a 17th-century building with a large and beautiful garden. There's a variety of rooms on offer, and a total capacity of 70 people. There are also facilities for conferences and meeting available. Smoking is prohibited throughout the hotel.
This is a lovely hotel to choose if you're going to Verona. The rooms are great, the staff are wonderful, and the best thing ... you'll have the patio of Juliet's house to yourself from 7:30 pm. It is amazing to go there and take a picture while completely alone! It's not exactly cheap, but worth it. The location is unbeatable, and you can choose from the breakfast menu, which is only served in your room.
The hotel is sold with SPA, but do not be deceived, What they call a SPA is a jacuzzi, a small sauna and a gym. It cost 18 euros to use it, so we found it too expensive and rather poor facilities for those prices. But otherwise the hotel was great, with free parking and spacious spots, a unique reading room and a TV, large dining rooms, cafeteria, terrace etc. The staff was good, we got along very well with them and they helped us with the routes, maps, and other trains.
This is a great option if you are staying in Verona. It has a fantastic location, just a short walk from the historic centre of the city. Just outside Porta Nuova, it can easily be reached by car, and has covered parking. The rooms are well maintained and nicely decorated, and the breakfast is delicious, with attentive service. Perfect!
The Campo Marzio is situated right at the entrance of the historic downtown Vicenza. Its location is therefore its greatest virtue, along with attentive service. My husband is gluten-intolerant and they had a breakfast special meal for him. A special mention to Massimo, who served us and helped organize the dinner with a big smile.
The American Dinesen Hotel is located in the heart of Venice in the picturesque Dorsoduro neighborhood along the San Vio canal. It's located in an elegantly-decorated 18th century palace conveniently set between the Gallerie dell'Accademi and the Peggy Guggenheim Foundation. You can walk to Piazza San Marco and the Rialto Bridge in only a few minutes.
The Liberty building is classic and old just a few steps from the train station, so it's convenient if you arrive with luggage and are going to tour the city. The area, or better yet, its surroundings, are a meeting place for immigrants from Padua. This four-star hotel offering over 50 rooms is in need of some maintenance and up-dates. The room was a little sad, though the breakfast room with high ceilings was bright and offered a wide variety of food to give you strength before starting to tour this amazing city.
