We arrived at the hotel's private berth and from then on experienced a pretty much faultless stay. Our room was great, comfortable bed, wonderful old furniture and art with a luxury bathroom and great amenities. Only downside was that there was no iron and ironing board or TCMF - apparently neither is allowed in old buildings in Venice due to... More

Stayed at the Gritti Palace for my wife's birthday in October and from the minute we arrived to the minute we departed we were treated so well. We were upgraded to a suite which was stunning, breakfast on the terrace was wonderful way to start the day and a night cap overlooking the Grand Canal the only way to finish... More

Venice has many Palaces and an even larger number of hotels that pretend to be Palaces. We have tried many of them and the Gritti always holds a particular place in our heart as it excels in all dimensions. Superb location on the Grand Canal, very close to the Academia bridge, La Fenice and San Marco, fabulous views from its... More

Gritti Palace is a beautiful hotel in a great location on the grand canal. Service is impeccable. Hotel is a beautiful old building that has been restored and updated with all the modern comforts but maintains its historical perspective.

What a wonderful place filled with charm and luxury! The staff is wonderful and treated us like royalty. We had a two bedroom suite with gorgeous views of Venice. It had so much old world charm from the keys to the rooms themselves.

The Gritti Palace has every right to call themselves the best hotel in Venice. The arrival at the Gritti via motor boat directly to their private dock was very exciting! Unbeatable location, great knowledgable staff, beautiful rooms. Our room had a great view of the grand canal. It was spacious, beautifully decorated, and spotless clean.

We stayed at the Gritti for 5 nights the first week of November to celebrate our anniversary. From the moment that we checked in, we were absolutely pampered.

No need to add to so many positive reviews other than to say the Gritti Palace really does live up to expectations. In particular we found the service from reception to housekeeping to the concierge to be very friendly accessible efficient and effective, not always the case in five star hotels. The place to stay in Venice.

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
