Reviewed 4 July 2011

We decided for Aqua Palace because of the combination of price (€ 161,00/night via Trivago), Tripadvisor rating and location.

At e 161.00/night in July, including breakfast & Wi-Fi internet there's nothing to complain about. It's a solid 4 star hotel. Of course our room was small (as expected because I've booked the cheapest one) but when in Venice anyway nobody will stay in the room for long. The room was well equipped, the bathroom (marble) very cosy. Staff, especially reception is super-friendly but not fake-friendly.

Best is the location, right in the middle of Rialto Bridge & S. Marco square. If you do have a map you'll find the hotel any time.

Why 4 points and not 5? When I would have paid full price I would expect a slightly bigger room, not just one pillow/person and a better blanket.

Would I stay at Aqua Palace again? At the rate I got: YES!!!

We stayed in the Aqua Palace for our 10th wedding anniversary and we couldn't have made a better choice. The staff were friendly and very helpful, always willing to give you their time to recommend places to go or restaurants to visit. The breakfast was great, a good choice of fresh fruit, cereals and pastries (a hot selection was also available)and the coffee was excellent. The location of the hotel was great, away from the main tourist areas and about half way between the Rialto Bridge and Piazza San Marco, though we would definately recommend getting the water taxi as finding it on foot for the first time would be a challenge!

We stayed at the AP in the end of may. The hotel was definitely a little difficult to find but the adventure was well worth it. We stayed in a Junior suite with canal view which was clean and big for a Venice room. Te bathroom was stunning marble. The best thing about this hotel is the location and pierro the manager. On a quiet little street 5 mins from Rialto and st mArks square the location could not be beat. All types of shopping nearby in all directions. Pierro was so helpful for restaurant and off the beaten tourist suggestions.

I just returned from a glorious trip to this hotel with my husband. I have travelled extensively and especially to Venice and was particularly impressed with this hotel from A-Z

A simple search on the internet brought me to this little gem. A boutique hotel all newly furnished refined Venetian touches especially the fabrics, flowers and little details such as the cushioned seat in the elevator

We stayed in room 304 (probably one of the more expensive rooms) but well worth it. A large comfy bed, two windows overlooking the canal, a beautiful bathroom all in marble. The service was excellent and the quality of everything here' top'.

Lots of closet space, bathrobes and nice toiletries. An oversize shower to die for!

I especially enjoyed having a Bellini (Venitian local drink) on the picture perfect terrase for two overlooking the bridge and the canal. The front desk service was excellent; they lent me a laptop in order for me to keep up with our reservations at our hotel and breakfast was very nice with a lovely serveuse and a great buffet selection with wonderful fresh fruit and very good coffee

We did not have any difficulty at all finding this location (conveniently located between the Rialto and San Marco Place thanks to the good directions.

It is a wonderful boutique hotel and not to be missed

a final note
If you are looking for a large palace and or an onsite fab restaurant or bar this may not be the place for you. They do serve drinks and the restaurant is there but its much more fun going out and exploring the many fine restaurants by foot that the front desk can help you with.

A very warm thanks to Piero and Giorgio whom made our stay extra special

Grazie mille :)
