Could not believe how close we were to St Marks Square a two minute walk! To visit Venice had been a dream of mine that i never thought would be realised. No matter how much you talk about Venice, no matter how many photographs you take and show you cannot do it justice. My husband could not get enough of the atmosphere the architecture everything!I
He, like me is telling all his collegues that if they have a wish list put Venice on it because its unbelievable! Thank you Venice for letting us share a part of you, we will be back,
We had a wonderful stay at this delightful hotel right in the heart of Venice , an oasis of calm with a wonderful roof garden looking towards The Campanile.The staff were friendly and helpful and the level of service exceptional.
Our room, we were given an upgrade , was charming ,the breakfasts very good and we would certainly recommend this to our friends and hopefully stay here again.
While this hotel can be a little confusing to find at first, its location is perfect. Great access to boat stops and sites. We were surprised that the room did not have AC while we were staying in April. We had to open the windows which is fine except for then you can hear more noise. My only other complaint is that you weren't allowed to bring beverages such as cappuccinos to the room. They wanted you to enjoy it downstairs.
"Close to all San Marcos and Venice have to offer "
We had a very pleasant 4 night stay at the PB in late March. Weather was hit and miss so it was nice that the hotel was in a good location close to many restaurants and shopping and also had a good bar. In particular our bartender Giampaolo was a great host to us. When we were looking for a real Venice "authentic" pub and restaurant, he literally closed the bar temporarily and walked us over to it, and ensured that we got a table. Outstanding customer service! The rest of the hotel staff was equally great. We were originally given a handicap accessible room and they accommodated bumping us up to a bigger room th next night which was nice. Overall we would stay at the Palace again!
We were in Venice for the Vogalonga and wanted to stay somewhere near St. Mark's Square. Thinking it would be impossible to find somewhere affordable (for us) we were pleasantly surprised to find the Gorizia had rooms for we three couples. And it was perfectly located half way between the Rialto Bridge and St. Mark's Square. Couldn't have asked for better. The hotel decor is a little tired and the breakfast very basic, but the room and bathroom were clean and the staff were lovely. So polite and helpful. We would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to others, pointing out that in that location anywhere more classy would also cost a great deal more.
San Marco (St Mark’s) is quintessential visitors’ Venice. The Piazza San Marco, famous for its pigeons, campanile, basilica, Palazzo Ducale (Doge’s Palace) and expensive cafes, is unmissable. The waterfront views are legendary and more gondolas depart from here than anywhere else in the city. In season the Piazza teems with day trippers though just a block or two away streets are quiet and offer more museums and palaces to explore.
