My husband and I had a special weekend planned to Venice and after searching we decided to try the Aqua Palace. It was a good choice. It is a small boutique style hotel with about 20 rooms. At arrival they upgraded us for free to a better room. Our room was nicely decorated. A beautiful bathroom. And - important for me - quiet. A good bed; we slept well. We had a view over one of the canals. A really nice view. The staff was helpful.
Breakfast was fine, not very special. But for Italian style it was a fine breakfast and the coffee was great.
The hotel does not have a restaurant but that is no problem there are so many places to eat in the area. The hotel was not so good in recommending restaurants, but part of the problem is that in January a lot of places are closed. I recommend you do a good restaurant search yourself because it is not so easy to eat well in Venice, you sort of need to know where to go.

Room Tip: It is nice to have a view. I think some of the rooms look out on a wall, so you might want to check...

From the moment we walked in the only word you could use to describe it was simply 'magical'. We stayed in room 104, which had a door which opened onto a juliet balcony overlooking a postcard canal view with bridges. The room including bathroom were pure luxury. Location was perfect, breakfast lovely. A world class hotel that we would have no hesitation in returning to.

We stayed at aqua palace for 4 nights. This is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed. The rooms are big,spacious and clean. Good buffet breakfast selection, friendly and personal service staff. Good location. We have a 18 month old baby and it's great to be staying in a centralized location as we are able to hop back to hotel often. Will definitely stay there again!

This hotel is superb. I have travelled the world... many countries including Venice 4 times. In Europe, hotels can be very hit and miss. I have stayed at some hotels that are really good, ok and some that you would let you pet stay in. This hotel is outstanding. From the moment you walk in, the decor, the feel, the fact that it is in the middle of the shopping district or the great buffet breakfast (yes - it is great) - you will have an awesome time here. I stayed in a junior suite - quite lovely and very roomy. Great bathroom, bed - oh just lovely and the staff - great. They even turn your bed in when your out late so when you come back to your suite, it is warm, bed turned and the lights set in such a lovely mood. Be quick though... this hotel is fresh on the market and I can tell from the amount of people walking through the door enquiring that it will be a set venue for Venice for a long time. Please - if you come - stay here or you can write a review to say I was wrong..... I am not - trust me!

Room Tip: Anywhere from level 2 upwards. They have garbage ships coming through but its not the hotels fault...
