I have used this hotel many times. It is an ideal location for using as a base. The rooms are excellent, some of the decor looks as if it needs refreshing and on this last trip, the hotel was obviously part way through a refurbishment programme which proved noisy during the day. Unfortunately there were some noisy guests staying a couple of nights - which the hotel doesn't really have any control over. The staff are superb with the exception of one person on reception.

Hotel desk was very helpful in arranging water taxis to airport for me we had used Venice Water Taxi upon arrival, which was a limo and water taxis for just 99 Euro, where they had quoted 110 euro but did not have the limo directly to the airport terminal, and involved walking some distance with your luggage, and they had no problem calling Venice Water Taxis for me and setting up the arrangement , was very helpful with directions to restaurants and public transportation. Breakfast was included and was very good, room is very old venetian, not modern except for bathroom, but location is close to all transportation , train satin and public water buses. Hotel had an elevator which is a plus in Venice.

Cannot rate this hotel more highly. Value for money was excellent. We suspect this was because we had booked through Venere. Our room was small but had a cute little dormer window that looked over the Grand Canal. Breakfast was well done and the restaurant staff were most courteous and helpful. The reception staff were typical po-faced Italian males but warmed with time and a few smiles from us. The hotel has a ground floor level terrace which adjoins the grand canal. A great spot for morning coffee or just to sit. We really regretted having to move on and hope to have the opportunity to stay here again.

The hotel had a great location and the staff were very welcoming and competent. It was also nice that they spoke English. The room was spacious and clean for the most part, but there was quite a bit of mold on the ceiling and part of the wall above the shower. That should be cleaned regularly. We were on the street side of the hotel and it was quite noisy at night until very late. The breakfast buffet was decent. Overall I would definitely recommend this hotel for a stay in Venice.

We stayed here after a cruise and our experience was excellent. We arrived very early in the morning, but they allowed us to check into our rooms anyway. We had to catch a train and the station was only 5 minutes away. Our rooms were spacious and overlooked the Grand Canal. The hotel is close to a Vaperetto stop, so getting around venice was very easy. Breakfast was a buffet-style and was also very good (ham, eggs, breads, cereals, and much more). The hotel arranged for our water taxi to the airport (arrived on time at their dock) and provided a sack breakfast since we were leaving before the buffet was open. The staff was great to work with and very helpful. I would highly recommend the Hotel Principe.

The hotel is very convenient to the train station (a 5 minute walk). The water taxi station is also close by. We opted to walk to all the points of interest which is fine as long as you have comfortable shoes ( it is about a 30 minute walk to St. Mark's Square). Plenty of quaint canals and back streets to see so I would recommend the walk at least once. The breakfast which was included at the hotel was very good and the rooms were nice but small (especially the shower). But the view of the Venice skyline and the sound of the bells ringing made everything perfect!! This was our first time to Venice and we were very pleased with our stay. Do expect many tourists though.

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel in July 2009. We would not rate this hotel more than a 3 star hotel. It is at good location, close to train station but rooms are very small as compared to what has been indicated in photographs. Triple room was OK but double room in which we stayed was small. Also we had to climb stairs with our luggage on the same floor because of 2-3 uneven building joined together to create one Hotel, though we received help from hotel staff but it was not very convenient with luggage. It was expensive over all for the price what we paid and facility what we got. I am sure you can get better or similar hotels in same surroundings for 40% less.

About 25min walk through venice to get to marks square and rialto bridge which was fine for us but maybe not so for others. Front desk staff were a bit snooty but nothing to lose sleep over.

The hotel was excellent except that our room was over the kitchen so in the morning the breakfast dishes made quite a noise. We used to live in downtown Chicago, so it wasn't a big deal for us.

My wife and I were honeymooning in Italy for 9 days. Hotel Principe was hands down the best hotel we stayed at (although not the most expensive). Knowing that we were on our honeymoon, they gave us one of the few rooms with a priceless view of the grand canal. Staff was VERY friendly and helpful and spoke English well. The breakfast that was included with the hotel room included numerous types of fresh bakery products; about 5 types of juice, fresh fruit, and any type of coffee you wanted, self serve. our room which was on the 2nd floor (Called the first floor by Europeans), was just perfect; two huge (floor to ceiling windows) that opened up to the Canal; my wife and I sat on a couple arm chairs for a good hour or so just watching the boats pass by. The walls were covered in very elaborate wall paper and there was an ornate chandelier. the bathroom had a full tub, and the shower head was located at the end of the tub (not in the middle of the tub as we experienced at a couple other hotels) and the location of the hotel Principe is perfect if your coming to the city by train or by bus-just a short 5 minute walk from the train station (it's a bit more of a haul if your coming from the bus stop...in that case, just take the #25 or #5 vaporetta one stop to the train terminal, or climb over a few bridges. You can walk to the Rialto Bridge in about 15 minutes, another 10 minutes from there and you at St. Marks. You can also easily catch on of the water buses which take about 15 minutes to get you down to the Square. I would absolutely stay here again!

This hotel was good. I think it is probably the most convienent hotel in Venice if you are to arrive by train. It is a 3 minute walk from the train station so you don't have to lung your suitcases onto the waterbuses or over bridges a for blocks to get to your hotel. The staff was first class and the breakfast was great. We did have one small issue in that there were shards of glass on the floor in our room when we got there. When we told the man at the front desk, we heard him get on someone in housekeeping pretty good and our room was vaccuumed again immediately. If I were to get nit picky there was a small hole in the back of our bathroom door where were the closet door had hit it and the hot/cold knobs were reversed on the faucet. It was also a little expensive, but everything is expensive in Europe. The view from our balcony was incredible, the AC worked great, the flat screen TV was also very nice. I would stay here again.

My only complaint was that the internet service advertised didn't really work.

It was in an ideal location and the free taxi ride we had to the Glass Factory from the Hotel was superb. The buffet breakfast was great and overall I couldn't complain about one thing. It was a memorable stay and one I will cherish forever. The seafood in Venice is divine! Make sure you try some.....

We went back to the reception, and needed few strong words before he realize he need to change to another room (first he offered to "make" the bed into one, how is that possible?) But Hotel is close to train station, and the street where it is on is lively with shops and restaurants. But I think there's another better hotel down the street (I forgot the name of it)

Venice itself is more expensive than the other cities we visited so quality/price question is tough one. I put relative to what we paid in other cities since I am not familiar with other accomodations in Venice. Our room was large enough for a hotel room. Location is convenient to train station and you can get to other sites easy enough via boat or walking but not really in the hub of the more desireable areas. We had 2 rooms -- double and a triple since we were traveling with our 10 year old and 2 teen agers -- rooms were adjacent but not adjoining which was ok for their age but wouldn't have been ok for younger ages. Some sections of the hotel have a musty odor and aged carpets. Fortunately, we weren't staying in that section. Breakfast was convenient and good. Enough variety to satisfy everyone. I wouldn't return to this hotel because I'd like to stay in a different section of Venice should I return -- we always left this area to get to where we really wanted to be.

The Principe is always a pleasure especially room 316 with a terrace overlooking The Grand Canal - and this was our third visit.

Better room than expected. Nice triple room with canal view for 200€ pr. night included breakfast is less than I thought it was. We arrived with car, and the location was excellent. Nice surprice with a taxi trip to Moreno island where we got a guided tour in a Moreno glass factory.All of it was free of charge.

We stayed in Room 122/123, which are absolutely marvellous. Standing on the balcony, I felt like "Il Principe" being hailed by the bypassing subjects on Canale Grande. - A memorable stay at a superb hotel!

All staff were really welcoming, and we felt that the overall standard of staff was excellent. The location is wonderful, but, like everything in Venice, the prices were very high indeed. You can't feel that you ever get value for money!!

Excellent hotel near the train station. We combined the trip to Venice with a stay in Verona so location was perfect for us. The double room was spacious, very attractive in Venetian style and extremely comfortable. The balcony overlooking the Grand Canal was a bonus. Recommended.

First day we were in a very small room, in particular the bathroom area (we are not big, A big person would not fit in at all!). Hot water hardly reached the 5 floor in a slow trickle, where we were. At our request we received an expensive room at a reasonable rate (170 ERU/night) which made the rest of our stay very confortable and pleasent. In summary, the inexpensive rooms may be poor. The expensive ones are very good, if can be obtained at a reasonable price. I guess we were lucky to be out of season.

The hotel took some time to find our booking but, that and the musty smell of the room aside, I would stay here again.

Generally a very good hotel. Staff extremely friendly and efficient except on leaving when we were asked for our credit card but not given an itemised account. When we requested one we found we were being charged a higher rate than the one at booking (on-line). The staff found this 'difficult'. Fortunately we had a photocopy of the reservation and rate. Apart from that, a good stay. Excellent location.

Unfortunately my reservation with venere.com was n o t transmitted to the hotel. But fortunately there was no problem to find a room. Hotel Principe can be recommended in any sense

Charming hotel, rooms totally redecorated in contemporary barocco design. Immaculate wonderful bathrooms with fluffy towels, bathrobes, slippers. Do ask for room 123, which has its private small terrasse overlooking the Grand Canal. Good location minutes by foot from bus and train station (safe and friendly surroundings)

To stay at Principe was a delight - it really made you feel quite regal. If you're looking at 3 star hotels and out of season, just pay a bit more and go for this 4 star gem.
