We chose Oltre Il Giardino after reading a review on Conde Nast Traveller and checking what Trip Advisor had to say about it. All the positives are true. It’s elegant and eclectic and the service is friendly and relaxed but completely unobtrusive. There’s a lovely living room in the house where guests have breakfast in the chillier months and a...

A haven - because the B&B is in such a quiet location, alongside a canal with a lovely walled garden. Understated elegance with a tasteful balance of modern furnishing and antiques. Plentiful, delicious breakfast with freshly squeezed orange juice, fresh fruit and a variety of pastries. Very helpful, friendly staff with good insider knowledge about the best places to eat...

We had an ideal few days in Venice here. The rooms were very comfortable, bed excellent; we were woken to the smell of baking and were presented each morning with a new, and at least to us unknown delicious cake or pastry in addition to freshly squeezed juice and the more familiar array of croissants fresh fruit and cereals. There...

I strongly suggest this nice hotel ! very cozy atmosphere, the rooms are very nicely decorated (finally one hotel with no venetian decoration! it was very hard to find...) and most of all the service is really unforgettable, from the moldavian girl at breakfast and her smile to the guys at the reception! They all were very friendly and truly...

I read a review in Travel & Leisure about this hotel and was not disappointed. If you prefer to stay away from the crowds, enjoy personalized service, excellent food (breakfast) and attentive service then this small hotel is the ideal place to stay. We stayed in the Green room, it was like a suite. The rooms were clean and large...

Oltre il Giardino is a beautiful old house that sits on a quiet canal (Rio di San Stin) in a charming residential/historical neighborhood in San Polo. The house itself and the room we stayed in (Ivory) are decorated in a simple, sophisticated style. Clean decor and very comfy bed. Spotless bath and a large walk-in closet. Service here, as mentioned...

I found the Oltre Il Giardino on your website and it was as perfect as your reviews stated. Our room was spacious, immaculate, well-appointed, and overlooked the garden where breakfast is served - weather permitting. And, the breakfasts were delicious. I wanted to have one of everything! The hosts were always friendly and very helpful. After a day of touring...

I loved this hotel and would return without hesitation. There are only 6 rooms in a converted house entered through a small walled garden beside a canal - you get a key for your room and the garden door. Breakfast is in the garden when warm enough - there is a buffet of cereals, yoghurt, various cakes and pastries; coffee,...

Booked this hotel after reading the reviews on TA and we were not disappointed. It is in the centre of Venice away from the most touristy areas but within easy reach of anything you need to see either on foot or on the vaporetto which stops nearby. I cannot recommend the Oltre il Giardino too highly. It is a haven...

We arrived at the airport on a delayed flight from Sicily at midnight and found that there were no water taxis waiting and so caught the ferry and vaporetto to San toma. It was quite a stressful journey as my plan was to step into a water taxi and step off at the hotel door we had no clue as...

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The house, which once belonged to Alma Mahler, the composer's widow who lived there in the 1920's, lies next to a small canal just a stone’s throw from the Church of the Frari, has now been turned into an exclusive but homely retreat. This enchanting place in the hearth of Venice offers something unique to those visiting the city. Our guests will feel that they have really found a home away from home. ... more   less
