Residence Corte Grimani
Ranked #23 of 385 Hotels in Venice
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 June 2009

This was our first trip to Venice and it was just fantastic. We picked Residence Corte Grimani on the basis of trip advisor reviews and their website. We were not disappointed!

The location was incredible with a small balcony right over the canal which was on one on the main Gondaliers routes which passed by every few minutes.

Chose Residence Corte Grimani if like us you want to be independant. This is a luxury apartment not a luxury hotel- there is a basic basement area for breakfast- and a small comfortable lobby. There is a £50 euro charge for unlocking cooking facilities but you can just use the fridge and sink free if you are eating out. We just loved having our meals overlooking the canal and watching people pass by over Goldoni Bridge and listening to the gondaliers singing.

Plenty of small local shops selling all the provisions you need. Ideally placed midway bewteen Rialto and St Marks. 5 mins beautiful iwalk to either.

Our Superior apartment had a very large lounge with dining table, sofa bed and kitchen area and bathroom. The second very large room had double bed sofa bed and independant bathroom. All very clean and to a high standard. It was hot in July but the apartment was very cool.

Tip Be aware some streets are very narrow and cobbled. Dont come laden with suitcases. There are no taxis here other than expensive water taxis. A gondala ride is a must -unforgetable- Go from St marks Sq and you pass the Palace, bridge of sighs and beautiful backwater canals. Buy a vaparetto (water bus) pass for your stay and if you have time visit the nearby islands Burano and Murano.

Venice is very busy by day but much quieter at night. Wandering through the sidetreets is a pleasure. ou never know whats round the next corner- we came across a Ferrari shop complete with an FI car!! dont ask me how they got it there!

Venice - We loved it, the children loved it - what more can i say!

Some people have said hard to find but if you directions no problem! From Piazzale Roma take Vaporetto number 2 to Rialto Bridge. As you get off turn right along the Grand Canal . Go along Riva del Ferro going by the portico of the palace on the Grand Canal. Cross the bridge and take the first street on your left (Calle Bembo); at the end of the street turn right on Calle del Teatro and then on your left until you reach Campo San Luca. From here take Calle Goldoni just in front. Go by boutique Armani and continue until Goldoni Bridge. Having reached the bridge look to your right and you will see Corte Grimani!! Take a few steps back and take narrow marble catwalk down the side of the bank that brings you to the Residence.

The team at Corte Grimani have created and maintained an enjoyable and unforgettable experience.

Maurizio the evening manager was fantastic even though we checked in late and tired with two children. He directed us to the best dining spots suitable for a young family with nice Venice style food (not tourist trap stuff).

Catching a water taxi to or from the hotel doorstep was a magical experience and worth the extra Euros.

The rooms are fantastic in size and standard. The hotel was very quiet but still central to San Marco square/ Rialto Bridge. This has really changed our experience of accomodation in Venice and certainly lifted the standard.

For us it's the perfect hotel, well situated in the center of Venise between Rialto and San Marco. Very quiet, very large rooms (rare in Venise !), very clean (and we are not people who say that easily) and not too expensive.
For some people who would like breakfast (what a mistake in this city, as there are so many places to have a fantastic one), who would like to be in a busy hotel with crowd, with activities, with bar, with disco, with fitness room... it's not for them !
If you are looking for something clean, quite, spacious, well situated, just to sleep well and have all the day to visit Venise, it's for you !!!

Just back from my second stay at the Corte Grimani. Our first stay was 2 years ago and the place was newish and had not yet been discovered by so many. It is still the perfect place to spend your time in Venice. It was a wonderful surprise two years ago, and this year it felt like coming home. It is perfectly situated in the city; it is immaculately clean; the rooms are spacious and well thought out; you can use the teapot and sink and refrigerator for coffee and tea and breakfast, without charge; and the staff is warm and welcoming and so helpful.

I can't imagine staying anywhere else and hope to see Donatella, Guido, Franca and the rest of the staff again, soon.
