We (my wife Pat & I) visit Northern Italy every year and usually spend some time in Venice as there is always something new to do or see. This year we stayed at the Principe Hotel on the Grand canal and near the railway station. Once you got passed the usual efficient but unfriendly reception staff everything was fine. The next day was a visit to Padua, again the highly efficient rail system made the journey easy It started raining that night and continued until Noah started building. The next day we wanted to go a walking tour deatiled in the guide book "the Ghetto to St Marks" the choice was to get wet or don't go, so we got wet but managed to see some magnificant sights the Jesuit Church with wonderful ceilings and paintings, the church of St John and St Paul (good coffee in the square) and after many twists and turns and turnbacks we reached St Marks Square which was flooded but bonus no dive bombing birds around. we managed to reach the Doges palace and though by this time we were cold and wet we had a good visit. quick walk back to the hotel, shower hair dryer on the shoes, cup of tea and we were ready to do the Grand Canal waterbus but is was getting dark,the windows were steamed up and there was no map of the stops. reached St Mark's walked to next stop and quickly back to railway station. Dry off again, some inner warmth and another good meal. the walk boards were out but we did manage to buy some more icecream (10pm dark and cold) but we had been on a diet since Christmas. Met some nice tourists and they were amazed that two 60 year olds could walk all day and not bother about the rain, beauty exists in the rain, in the dark as well as the sun. Best part SuperBreak had given us a wonderful bonus as we had used them for ten trips and the family gave us vouchers for Christmas. we have a photograph of St mark's square with no tourists and no birds. Will we be back by SuperBreak we will be!! Collapse

Helpful reception staff, especially the concierge Erika who gave us lots of local advice at breakfast each day. We have only given hotel 3 stars due to dated, small bedroom and miniscule shower. However, bed and pillows were very comfortable and it was in a quiet part of the hotel on the top floor. Breakfast was good with reasonable choice. Excellent location for buses, trains and water taxis. Lovely position on the Grand Canal. Collapse
Ideal hub to explore Venice!

I have stayed at the Principe Hotel twice now, once on business and the other for pleasure. The hotel is located close by to the train station or drop off point for taxi’s, I found this very handy as I needed to get a taxi in the morning to attend some meetings. Nearby to the hotel they have a water taxi dock to take you round the canals (I think the stop is Ferrovia) Also within walking distance to the hotel there is plenty of places to eat and drink, so for me the location is the primary selling point of the hotel. The hotel is also fairly priced in comparison to other hotels, as they can get very expensive in Venice. The rooms are classically Venetian styled which feels a little dated, but in keeping with Venice really. The first time I stayed, I was facing the hotel entrance - although I had a large room, it was quiet noisy outside the hotel. The second trip I was facing the water which I found to be much quieter and a far better view. The breakfast in the hotel is fine, nothing special but equally not bad. The one gripe I had with the hotel was that lack of ironing facilities. I checked in at 4pm and was advised that no iron is available in the room (I believe this may be a legal thing it Italy from other trips), but they couldn’t offer any service to press or iron a shirt until the morning. This was frustrating as I had to leave first thing for a meeting before the ironing service was available. Apart from the above, the staff were friendly and helpful. This isn’t a luxury hotel by any stretch, but offers an ideal inexpensive hub to explore a great city like Venice. I will certainly stay again next time I visit Venice. Collapse

We prepaid for a standard room and arrived at the hotel tired at 2pm. We were told our room wasn’t ready. The reception tried to sell us a beautiful larger room on the canal for 50 euros more a night. We then saw the room we were waiting for - it was like a cage facing a wall with no view whatsoever. We had to urge the front desk receptionist to find us another room which he finally did, and were warned that the room facing the street may be noisy. We were extremely happy with the room and settled in. A nice perk was that there was both boiling and ice water in the hall near the elevator. The breakfast is good and the ambiance in the breakfast room on the canal is very pleasant. The location is right near the train station and the number 2 ferry so the hotel is very accessible with luggage. We didn’t find the room facing the street noisy at all during Carnival weekend. We had to check out 6am and there was no coffee or breakfast to go at that hour. Collapse

This was the hotel chosen by Riviera Travel on our escorted holiday in Venice. It is in a very convenient location close to the station and on the Grand Canal. There are touristy shops, restaurants and supermarkets all within walking distance. The sights are easy to walk to or you can get the vaporetta from the station. One day when we couldn't walk any further we crossed over the road to Gino's for dinner. The pizza was amazing and I've never seen choice like it. The reception staff were always very friendly and helpful especially when I locked myself out of my room! The bar staff were great too. We only had breakfast in the hotel, it was a continental buffet and sometimes there was a queue but the wait wasn't that long. I only had yoghurt but my friend enjoyed the breakfast. We had two single rooms and we saw mine first which was small, I was glad I didn't say anything as my friends room was even smaller. As it's an old hotel you have to make allowances for things like room sizes and sticking doors. As with a lot of European hotels they do not provide tea & coffee facilities in the bedrooms. We did discover an urn of hot water in the corridor so you could make your own. Our rooms were at the side of the hotel where the market stalls are so it's quite noisy from about 5am. In fairness we spent very little time in our rooms and the location more than made up for the teeny rooms. Collapse
