Very comfortable quiet hotel in a great location between Rialto Bridge and St Marks Square. Suite (room 205) was huge with a large bathroom and canal views. Good selection of restaurants nearby (would recommend San Lio and Da Mamo). Breakfast buffet included gets the day off to a flying start. Would stay again

Room Tip: Canal view rooms do look onto the canal, but bear in mind it is a narrow waterway so you have to sti...

We stayed at the Aqua Palace for 1 night at the end of March and had a very pleasant stay. The location is as good as you will get in Venice, halfway between St Marks and the Rialto (less than 5 mins walk to each) but far enough away from each to be quiet and relaxing.

Check in was very efficient. When we reserved the room online through an online agent it only showed twin rooms available but on check in they offered to convert the bed to a double whilst we were sightseeing. When making the booking we had also requested a canal view which they accommodated.

Our room was number 91 which is on the ground floor just around the corner from reception and next to the water taxi boarding area, and as such we thought it could be noisy, but didn't hear a thing during the stay so this wasn't an issue. The room was clean and spacious, but we would describe it as opulent rather than contemporary as it is marketed - lots of gold colouring! Whilst this was not entirely to our modern taste, it is as close as we think we could get in Venice. The beds weren't the most comfortable we've ever had as they seemed a bit springy but we still slept well. The room had all the essentials including safe, bathroom amenities kit, free Wi-fi (reception will give you the login details), LCD TV and mini bar. The mini bar itself did seem relatively expensive but there was a complimentary bottle of water.

Breakfast was buffet style between 7-10.30am and offered the usual selection of cereals, pastries, yoghurts, cold meats and cheeses along with scrambled eggs and bacon. Everything was of decent quality, and the lady in charge was very friendly. She offered hot drinks and was on hand for anything else that was needed. We arrived at around 9.30 and were seated immediately, although a couple who arrived shortly after us did have a 5 minute wait for a table to become free - they were given tea and coffee whilst waiting though.

Check out was at 12pm and was as efficient as check in. The hotel also have a luggage area where you can store bags whilst sightseeing if you aren't leaving the city until later in the day.

Overall whilst there were a couple of points which stop me giving 5 (springy bed, type of furnishing and lack of bar / additional facilities), I would still highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Worth requesting a canal view

Don't look any further...this is it!!! The moment you arrive you are treated to the dream Venetian experience in every way. We had a gorgeous junior canal suite, huge luxurious room with 2 windows looking out onto the small canal below. Large white marble bathroom with double basins, all spotlessly clean. Seriously, we couldn't fault this place! We decided to splurge & arrive by private water taxi, (book online direct for the best rates), we walked straight in from the canal, through the grand doors, a real wow factor! Can't believe their rates are so reasonable considering their location close to both St Marco & Rialto. A fabulous lady, Sylvia, takes care of everyone at breakfast. We heard her speaking fluently in at least 5 languages & she had a great sense of humour as well as making the best cappuccino we had our whole 3 weeks in Italy! Simply the most romantic, stunning place to stay in Venice...book it, you won't regret it!

If you are in Venice, this has got to be the hotel to stay in. Excellent service - you are greeted with warmly welcome everytime you step into the hotel from your travels. Breakfast with Bindi pies and quality crossaint was delicious and made my every morning. I told them I was on honeymoon and they upgraded me to a junior suite was so luxurious n comfortable and was overlooking the canal - how romantic it was! I truly enjoyed my stay here and it is truly perfect! Thanks to the staff in Aqua Palace Venice for making my honeymoon just perfect! :)
