Position is ideal, in a quite back street close to Rialto Bridge, the staff were excellent, our room was wonderful, pity spa was extra fixed cost and watch out for the free taxi to Murano offer, it comes with hard sell tactics at glass works which was not explained.
Small and nice B&B witch was pretty much hidden in the middle of the street, the host Stephanie was very helpful and pleasant. The room was wonderful ,comfortable, clean and cozy. I would for sure stay there again.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay at Hotel Bucintoro, where we relished wonderful views down to St Marcs Square and across the bay to Lido from our corner junior suite. The staff were friendly & helpful and facilities lovely and clean. I am very fussy about beds and pillows – both here were excellent and we slept very well. The room AC worked well and the shower was also excellent. Breakfast was a feast of cold meats, savoury quiche, fantastic tomatoes, cheeses, pastries, yogurts, fruit & juices, great coffee and there was an extra menu for those requiring scrambled eggs etc. (So very good and ample). Some people have said how small the main reception and foyer is, but we found it charming and there was even a small lounge we could use with computer + printer, TV and magazines – all decorated and furnished with the tasteful hotel yachting theme. Amazing yacht’s moored outside during our stay - where this was an ideal location near to the park and far enough away from the busy crowds and noisy water buses but a stone’s throw to reach everything. Couldn't have been happier with our choice of hotel.
From first arrival to departure the hotel staff couldn't have been more helpful and obliging . The hotel and rooms were immaculate and well maintained . The staff gave us excellent recommendations regarding places to eat and visit which all added to the enjoyment of our holiday . Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone .
"Danieli is an excellent hotel and I wish we could "
We stayed a week at Danieli. It was booked through Expedia, no problems. We cannot find fault in the cleanliness of the room. Everytime we went out for lunch or dinner, the house keeping staff tidied up our room and it was so nice to come back to a clean and tidy room.
A few times the housekeepers forgot to give us complementary water bottles but then they covered it by giving extra bottles, which was good.
The most important thing for us is the morning bed tea as we wake up but Danieli had no such provision in the rooms. Due to some unknown reason they cannot have a kettle in the rooms. I personally think it is a ploy to get people order their tea as room service which was extremely expensive. £12 or so for each cup of tea is an extortion no matter how big or prestigious the hotel may be. We have stayed in other 5 star hotels and they have provided tea/coffee facilities in the rooms, but not at Danieli.
If they reduce their charges/price for drinks and food a lot more people will eat in but hardly anyone is prepared to pay 5 times more than market rate for tea/coffee or other drinks etc.
However, you do not have to eat in Danieli as the food/drinks is reasonably priced in restaurants just a few yards away from the hotel. Please Danieli, let us have tea coffee facility in the room and we will come back to stay with you again as we were very happy with the rest of the service the hotel staff provided.
Bordering San Marco and the Rialto and stretching east to some of Venice's quietest greenest parts, Castello is the city's most varied 'sestiere'. Its most famous aspect is the Riva degli Schiavoni waterfront next to the Bridge of Sighs, with picture-postcard views onto the lagoon. Yet a few yards from the tourist hoards, the backstreets are quiet and typically Venetian. There are many outstanding churches and art collections in this area.
