Great islandic hotel to isolate yourself from the chaotic rush on San Marco and pushes in the narrow streets. San Clemente enjoys fantastic position vis-a-vis main attractions and only 15 min boat trip to the airport. Large green gardens cover the hotel and hide you from noise of boats. Spacious clean rooms, large bathrooms with separate bath and shower. Service...

Stayed here when it first opened its doors many years ago. Returned to see that it was still as beautiful and unspoilt as it was then. Think that it has improved by Kempinski and now offers a beautiful bar overlooking the lagoon. There is a large pool and beautiful grounds to wander around. Boat shuttle ran like clockwork every 30...

I had a wonderful time in this hotel. Its location is unique, you are close to Venice but far from the madness of the crowd under your balcony. Great rooms, great infrastructure. The food is amazing and the hospitality is one of the best I have ever experienced. Friendly and truly skilled staff! Our concierge Matteo - who was one...

We visited on our honeymoon and again last year for our anniversary and the place is impeccable. A lovely greeting and felt like royalty. We have loved it so much we are renewing our wedding vows here this July. We cannot wait. It's out to the way to be exclusive and private and a quick courtesy boat away from St...

Stayed for 3 nights at this iconic kempinski hotel. Service excellence was at its best. From arriving to our departure every request was taking care of in a professional manner. Personal attention was always there when needed. Their cuisine was outstanding. If you have the opportunity to have dinner in their fine dining please try the gnocchi. Simply superb. Thank...

One arrives via private Kempinski water taxi in the most idyllic setting possible: luxurious greens interspersed with magnificent trees and red blossoms, only to be topped off by authentic Italian architecture. The restaurant staff struggle to meet everyone's needs simultaneously, but the Chef de restaurant is a true master of his art, from the appetizers,through the entrees and on to...

From the moment we stepped of the boat, a feeling of tranquil took over. This hotel is heaven on its own island. Nothing is too much trouble, all staff, from reception, the ladies in red, concierge, housekeeping and waiting staff are wonderful, even addressing us by name (we were only there two nights)! All in all I cannot recommend this...

It is great to return to the island after a tiring day in Venice, stroll across the parks and enjoy a sundowner at the bar. The Staff is very friendly and helpful, made us feel always welcome and at home.

My husband and I arrived to a warm welcome at San Clemente Kempinski and were upgraded to a beautiful suite with prosecco as it was our 4th wedding anniversary. What a lovely surprise!

My wife and visited Venice and the Kempinski last week for three days. I am well traveled and had the fortune of staying in lots of nice hotels but must say from the moment we were greeted off our water taxi to the moment we left, our stay was never short of excellent.
