Hotel Monaco & Grand Canal

Reviewed 2 September 2017

We asked for a canal view room and must have got the lowest quality room. We paid over $500 US a night. They gave us a room on the 1st floor right in front of the gondola stand. That was pretty much our view. The bathroom door did not shut and the shower's condition was terrible. We won't stay there again.

Unfortunately, I had a very bad experience at this Hotel where I stayed for three nights in August 2017.
I booked two rooms as we are 5 in the family. One room was quite nice but the other one (a junior suit) had a disgusting smell coming from the bathroom.
When I complained about this the answer that I got was that the hotel was full and that they could only offer me another room at the opposite part of the hotel that, by the way, is the old part that has not been refurbished since middle ages.
The worst part of it is that there were no apologies, no sense of willing to solve it, no follow up, no detail and not any kind of care at all for us.
With so many hotels in Venice there are better options and less risky that this hotel.
Important to mention also that the breakfast is the poorest I have ever seen in a 4 star hotel.

Dear Guest.

it is with real disappointment that I read your review. You refused to be changed in the presidential suite without any supplement. This suite has a surface of 35sq. a large sitting room and 4 windows overlooking the Lagoon, the Grand Canal, San Giorgio Island, Giudecca Island and the most important monuments of Venice!!!!This suite costs daily Euro 2.ooo without breakfast.You refused all this.

Stayed two nights at this wonderful hotel. Perfect location to walk the city. Staff are beyond gracious and helpful. Room 201 was lovely. The decor was a perfect combination of old and new, comfortable, classy, chic. We could open the windows and listen to the lively street sounds and church bells or close the windows and it was cool and quiet. Lobby is beautiful light and modern. Library with soft sofas and shelves of art books. A well from the old campo. Breakfasts were delicious and sitting on the veranda watching the endless parade of boats is priceless. I would stay here again gladly.

Having stayed at this hotel on 4 June 2018 my husband and I would certainly not recommend it to anyone. The room, for the price, was very small, overlooked an alley and there was black mould around the bath. The staff were very rude i.e. at reception, the terrace restaurant and the cocktail bar.

My husband and I had only one night in Venice, but I couldn't be happier that we chose to spend it at the Hotel Monaco & Grand Canal. I was drawn in by the pictures of the terrace over the Grand Canal. The hotel lobby was very modern (and very air conditioned!) and the front staff was incredibly helpful. Room was very fancy with chandeliers and beautiful decorations. Most importantly though, it was clean, and very comfortable. Breakfast was fantastic on the terrace and it even included a bottle of Prosecco to make mimosas. Overall, I wish we had longer to stay and it was a gorgeous hotel which lived up to the pictures. Also, very close to St Mark's Square. Great location too
