My partner and I planned a three day getaway in Venice with his parents and used Tripadvisor to help determine the best hotel to stay at within our budget. So very glad we did. Hotel Bucintoro is a great place to stay for a number of reasons. Firstly, the rooms are very comfortable and spacious. Both couples were given a corner room on level two and four and the views were excellent. Definitely request a suite with a corner room!
Also, the hotel is situated just that bit further away from the tourist area that you feel that you are getting away from it all when you head back to the hotel of an evening. The continental breakfasts are great too with a great variety of cold meats, cheeses, cereal, croissants and fruit to choose from. A great way to start your day in Venice.
A good tip if you want a room that is truly extra special is to contact the hotel directly and ask about room 501 that isn't featured on the website. It has a private rooftop balcony on top of the hotel that has an amazing view of the water and the passing boats. A real hidden treasure!
Finally a big thanks has to go to Stefano and Giancarlo who really made the trip very special for us. They organised a water taxi to and from the airport (110 Euro each way- a MUST) to restaurant recommendations (ask about the best pizza in Italy only 100 metres away- DELICIOUS). Great staff and a great hotel. Highly recommended!
