How to Get There
Location was perfect away from chaos and crowds in quiet neighborhood, but close to good shopping and local food choice. Easy walk to either traghetto, vaporetto's at Ca d Oro or Fondamente Nove. Breakfast had good variety, good coffee and service. Staff was helpful and friendly, especially Luca. Room was small but cozy and comfortable. Room was clean, lots of hot water. Able to open windows to let fresh air in. Would stay here again without any reservations.
Loved this place. You go down a tiny street turn a corner and then find a small piazza. The entrance to the hotel is through the garden. Yes, a garden in Venice, very nice. The other side of hotel is on a canal and very picturesque. Hotel lobby is quite grand and the rooms seemed really Venetian to me. Ours was upholstered in brown brocade with beamed ceiling and marble bath. They had set out a bottle of prosecco with chocolates for us when we arrived It overlooked the garden and side piazza. Very good breakfast buffet with lots of options. One of the staff, Lucas, was very helpful with suggestions for restaurants and makes a mean Aperol spritz. All the staff were really nice We loved this place and felt it really invoked the spirit of Venice.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at hotel Palazzo Abadessa! It’s located in a quiet neighborhood away from main tourist traffic areas yet within walking distance to all the main attractions. Getting here from the train station and in general around Venice is very easy taking a vaporetto (water bus) and the ca d oro stop is steps away from the hotel so the location is great! You get a complimentary bottle of prosecco with your stay and their breakfast was very tasty. Also, the service was very impressive and we felt welcomed by everyone there. Their courtyard is probably one of the best features of the place and is a perfect place to slow down and enjoy breakfast or a glass of wine in the evening. We’d certainly love to come back and stay here again!
This was such a great find and we loved staying here during our visit to Venice. Quite a charming boutique hotel with tons of atmosphere. It is a historic building with plenty of character, very clean and updated baths. The staff was helpful, kind and pleasant - so nice to feel welcome. Included in our visit was a tea service in the afternoon and an amazing breakfast buffet. This was a great find and I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Venice.
We arrived via a shared transfer from the airport and were taken to the ca' d'oro stop off the canal. The hotel was a very short walk from there, down a side alley and toward the canal. There is a wonderful courtyard when you enter, where people can eat and relax, then inside the receptionist desk. We were greeted by a very friendly man who gave us our room key, which was HUGE and heavy. We went up the stairs and our room was immediately the first door up the staircase. The room was nice, two windows that look out at the canal. The entire hotel is very old and so decorated as such with antique furniture. I believe I read that the hotel use to be a small palace or mansion a long, long time ago.
Air conditioning stayed on at the lowest temp setting our entire stay but never really got cold. Room came with a bottle of prosecco and breakfast. We found that arriving to breakfast too late meant you didn't get as many choices. They had ran out of croissants completely our first morning there, so we got there earlier the second day and were able to find lots of choices and also hard boiled eggs that weren't there the day before. They delivered espresso or cappuccinos to us, but we found that it would often take too long and decided against that on our last days there.
The afternoon/evening receptionist was not as friendly as the man in the morning. Often felt like I was bothering him when I had a question. The daytime receptionist though was always great and even called restaurants for us to check if we needed to book a table ahead of time.
One down side of this location is it is VERY far from the train station. And during our stay, we found that the ticket machine in front of the ca' d'oro did not work and you are required to purchase tickets before boarding. This meant either paying 100+ euro for a water taxi or walking it. We decided to walk it, luggage in tow. It was so hot and humid outside, it was not fun at all. Would recommend maybe purchasing a ticket ahead of time, maybe see if the mobile app works, because walking that far with luggage sucks.
