Need some help choosing Venice hotel

Jump to last reply

We will be in Venice for two nights and I think I've narrowed our hotel options down to a few. I have read the tripadvisor reviews, but I was wondering if anyone here as actually stayed at any of these properties and could give me any opinions. We're a group of 6. A family of 4, with two kids who are 11 and 13, boy and girl, so we really are looking for a quad with twin beds for them. And then there's my parents who will just need a double.

Our arrival will be having just returned a rental car in Venice, so I actually don't know exactly where we'll be coming from - but we'll be spending 2 nights in Venice before taking the train back to Civitavecchia before a cruise on the Epic.

I'm hoping to find a hotel we can get to with a water taxi so we don't have to drag luggage over bridges, given that we have both my parents (in their 60's) and my kids, who yes are capable, but 6 people and 3 weeks of luggage is just a lot! I'm not sure that all of these have the direct canal entrance, so if anyone knows for sure, that would be great information as well!

I also would like to stay in a good location to make the most of our two days for sightseeing. So a location that is central for the sights for walking. It's not so important to be close to getting the train back our last morning. Will we be able to pay for a water taxi to the train station?

We're looking at:

Residence Corte Grimani - which would be one apartment for the 6 of us. But the one downside I believe is that the adults would all be sleeping on sofa beds. The kids would each have twin beds. It's only 2 nights, so I don't know if it would be that big of an issue. I also think there is only bathroom for the 6 of us. The price is very reasonable, and even more so in that we'd only need one room for all 6 of us.

Hotel Canal Grande - we would have a Junior Suite with two additional twin beds for 4 of us, and a double for my parents.

Hotel Al Ponte Mocenigo - a quad and a double

Palazzo Schiavoni - quad and a double

Palazzo Priuli - quad and a double

And.....if anyone has any other suggestions, this is in no way a final list! I'd be open to apartments, but they seem to all have 3 night minimums.

Thank you!
