How to Get There
The staff was extremely accommodating and the hotel is in a great location. It was an excellent hotel experience! We only had one night in Venice and the night boat tour that was recommended was the highlight.
Overall this was an excellent hotel experience. We were only staying one night prior to a cruise and this hotel was perfect. I had them arrange an airport transfer for 150 EUR which was well worth it not to haul our bags around public transportation or the streets of Venice, the private water taxi was a great way to enter the city. Room was spacious, cool even in July, square is very quiet and an easy walk to anywhere in the city with good restaurants and less crowded streets nearby. Staff was very friendly and helpful for every request and also arranged a water taxi right to our cruise ship for 90 EUR.
The hotel is well appointed and in a great location close to St. Mark's Square. The staff was professional and was able to answer all of our questions.
We were on the top floor which presumably was originally storage or servant's quarters. The room itself was modern and the A/C worked great, but there was only one very high window (too high to see out of) and some low exposed beams so you had to watch your head. Not a negative in my opinion since a) we booked through hotels.com so we didn't expect a top of the line room, b) it was very quiet, and c) it's a 16th century building so it's going to be a bit different!
The water entrance means you are literally delivered to the door by water taxi.
Overall, a great experience.
We stayed at Ruzzini Palace for 2 nights in July and it was magical! The hotel had a driver waiting at the airport for us who then took us to a water taxi which dropped us directly to the hotel with a guided tour. On checking in, we were upgraded to a beautiful junior suite with a panoramic view. The room was wonderfully appointed with a great sized bed in the middle of the double ceiling room. We also were given a complementary welcome drink in the hotel bar on our first night as well. The hotel staff were great for suggesting tours and restaurants. Only criticism was that the shower head was a little short (it was a bath/shower combo) but otherwise was a terrific stay!
Staff was excellent and very accommodating. Very friendly. Breakfast buffet was great. Highly recommend. They set up a night taxi ride for us and gave us a bottle of bubbly for a Birthday we were celebrating.
