“Excellent Hotel - Really made our trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2012

Wow! What a place! I can not recomend this hotel enough. It is just a small hotel located close to the sights of Venice. We took a water bus from the station to Rialto bridge stopped and walked from there with our cases, Venice is a maze but the hotel gave great directions and despite wheeling two heavy cases we were there in less than ten minutes.

The hotel overlooks a square and is only two minutes from St Marks Square which we could see from our window. We had a standard room and to our supprise the porter showed us the way to the top floor. Our room was quirky to say the least but fantastic! We had big wooden beams being in the roof, tea and coffee making facilities (The first time we saw this in Italy) and wooden steps leading to the window to look out over Venice and the square. The hotel had AC but also we had a velux which opened via a motorised panel on the wall. The bathroom was the best, HUGE bath with jacuzzi and powerful shower - that really was a fab supprise!

The reception team were really helpful on providing advice on where to go and the breakfast was typical of italian buffets with cold meats, breads and cheeses but they also provided a bottle of ice cold Prosseco which is an added luxury.

In all, best hotel I have stayed in, due to being small it was personal, the team remembered our names and wished us well and would definately return. Fully reccomend!

We have just returned from a three night stay at this gorgeous hotel. The location was perfect 5 minutes each way to the Rialto Bridge and San Marco. On arrival we were informed we had been upgraded which was a lovely touch and we had a Deluxe room on the top floor which had a beautiful bathroom and low beams. Breakfast was lovely so much choice and free flowing Prosecco. Every member of staff we came into contact with was so friendly and the reception were especially knowledgeable. Venice is expensive but the hotel bar had a great selection of drinks at reasonable prices, the wine was 4€ a glass and was not a tiny measure like in restaurants in town. If your going to Venice treat yourself and stay here.

Arrived at the Ruzzini Palace after getting a public water taxi to the Rialto bridge, found the hotel fine with their directions and was greeted by the friendly staff also given an upgrade to our room because of our 25th wedding Anniversary.The room was lovely, only downside was the bed was hard and uncomfortable, found out after 3 days the frame was broke but our fault for not noticing sooner.The breakfast was very nice lots of choice. The hotel is very close walking distance to quite a few attractions, would recommend this hotel for a great trip to venice.Thanks to all the staff really enjoyed our stay.

Excellent small hotel with the personal touch, couldn't fault our stay here so would definitely stay here again if returning to Venice. It seems to have the best virtues of being in a peaceful location but only minutes from main sights, it was a lovely feeling returning to the hotel after a day's sightseeing, knowing we could relax and have a choice of many local restaurants close-by, can strongly recommend Ai Barbacani where we had dinner 3 nights out of 4. You won't get ripped off in this area as you will around St Marks Square.
Breakfast was excellent and staff couldn't have been more helpful, we were even upgraded. We shall fondly remember our stay at Ruzzini Palace as one of our best.

Room Tip: Try getting a junior suite or better.

This hotel was in a fantastic location, 5 minutes from St Marks and 5 minutes from Rialto Bridge. We had three nights here and could definately have stayed longer. Would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Venice. Breakfast ample, price of wine for a night cap was cheaper than anywhere else in Venice, needless to say we had a couple.
