Very Good 8.2 From 467 reviews

Hotel Principe, Venice, Italy
An affordable yet a glamorous hotel.
The overall experience was amazing, the view from my room was priceless, the breakfast was great but the staff at the breakfast should clean tables as soon as one finishes so another can use the table, I had no option but to sit on a messy table for two days in a row, because other tables were taken. The hotel looked fabulous but they could improve on their wifi speed which was terribly slow. Every ferryman in Venice seemed to know the directions to this hotel maybe because of its reputation there, which made my travel very conveniant.

Great location
Ideal location having arrived on the train into Venice. Turn left out the hotel and it’s about 2 minutes walk to the hotel. The location is brilliant for exploring Venice. The reception is very grand and looks the part of a 4 star hotel complete with bell boys to take baggage to rooms etc. The room itself was comfortable and good size. Has an authentic Italian feel however could do with a bit updating. The furniture is old looking and the tiles in bathroom a bit cracked in parts. It wouldn’t stop me from staying here again and I would recommend the hotel.

Don't bother
Pro good location, breakfasts ok. Cons, first room you couldn't stand up in the shower, I'm not tall. They asked if I wanted another room and that smelt like poo. Then got another room where you could stand up but the shower had mould in it. Every room I went to was soo hot as the heating was stuck on and wouldn't cool down. The beds are like concrete. There is building works on. Staff I encountered were rude. How on earth its a 4 star is beyond me.

Excellent hotel
We got engaged and had the best time. The hotel was right on the grand canal and the staff were lovely. 1 downside was that the air conditioning didn’t work but they did provide ya with a fan. Would highly recommend
