We really enjoyed our 3 day stay here. The outside of the hotel might not look great, but that was true for many hotels in Venice, but the inside was beautiful. The staff were very helpful and breakfasts were very good. The rooms were well provided with dressing gowns and slippers included. We had a room with a view over...

The room was clean, hotel conveniently located to good restaurants, and with its own dock for a water taxi. The bathroom had a weird window where you could watch your spouse shower while lying in bed. I guess that could be fun for honeymooners?

Just stayed at the palazzo giovanelli for 3 nights in a dormer room and other than the ceiling being a little low for my other half, the room was lovely. The hotel was beautiful, a real mixture of both Classic Venice but modern too. Great location right on the grand canal, the only criticism would be, when you get off...

Hotel Palazzo Giovanelli was convenient to get to from the airport and very close to all the sights in Venice. It is directly accessible to a Vaparetto stop, which made it very easy to get around.

Staying in San Polo

Neighbourhood Profile
San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
