“Small and perfect for a real "taste of Venice"”
Reviewed 16 February 2012

Palazzo Abadessa is a small palazzo that gives a wonderful sample of the style and elegance of historic Venice. It is quietly situated with elaborately decorated public rooms and bedrooms. Set on a canal and with its own garden, yet still in a very convenient location - the vaporetto on the Grand Canal is 2minutes walk. The establishment is very well run, spotlessly clean and the staff are all marvellous - very professional and helpful. They only serve breakfast - but there Venice is full of places to eat and the breakfast is very good. If you like to escape from the crowds and feel as if you have found somewhere private and special Palazzo Abadessa will not disappoint.

Room Tip: The first floor rooms are huge with high ceilings.

Quite place to stay but very convnient to travel by public transportation. Very friendly and helpful staff. Room was nice and comfortable. There was a full-sized, modern bathroom. The daily continental breakfast was very good. The price of the rooms were a little high.

First, thanks to Darwin. He is extremely helpful and caring
Second, the room (we had the golden one) was great, the breakfast was really good (comparing to standard breakfast in European hotels), the location is excellent (near the best ice-cream place - GROM) and the place itself is beautiful.
I highly recommended staying there while you are in Venice.

This hotel is one of those places that you keep in a special place of your memory. It is a gem that one only comes across occasionally. I travel to many continents in various hotel types, but a 13nd century palazzo is hard to find in most cities. The rooms are delightful : wonderfully decorated with beautiful furniture, the bath rooms are splendid.
the overall atmosphere is very sophisticated but also hart warming.
Breakfast in the large hall is an absolute delight.
The hotel is conveniently situated not too far from the main streets to the Rialto Bridge and the San Marco square, but it is very quiet, as it is not on the main walkways.
this is our second visit and we will return here, as we find this a wonderful retreat.
the staff is delightful and we were welcomed with a bottle of nice prosecco and fruits in our room.

A wonderful and stylish place to stay tucked away from the desperate tourist crush of central Venice.
We spent three nights is one of the smaller rooms overlooking the canal. As we were so busy sightseeing the room was perfect, the breakfasts were a feast and eating in the garden such a serene beginning to our daily adventures.
We found some excellent restaurants within walking distance and made one booking with the help of the staff, well in advance for a special birthday meal. We loved the area, found the traghetto an economical form of gondola and enjoyed "getting lost".
The passes for both churches "Chorus" and water transport are invaluable as you can hop on and off at will without spending a fortune or wearing yourself out.
We were so well looked after and look forward to another visit.

Room Tip: The grander rooms were not in our bank balance however our room was quiet, comfortable and well equi...
