La Residenze in Venice. Good or bad?

Hello -
Fodor's lists La Residenza is a great find as does Cheap Sleeps in Italy and Travel and Lesiure Magizine. "Beautiful lobby with simply, well sized, clean rooms.." is how it is described. I then read a comment that a recent traveler found cockroaches in her room! I am not afriad of bugs but with them having a 7 day cancelation policy I am hard pressed to book knowing I could not get out of the hotel reservation if it really is the dumps! Help! Please, anyone have some recent experience with the hotel?

Are you referring to Residenzia(sp?) on Campo Moro Y Bandero (spelling is wrong but should pinpoint the location) If so, it is a 15th Century Palazzo. It was the first place my husband and I stayed in Venice almost 20 years ago. have been trying to get a reservation again ever since... but they are always filled up. If this is the hotel, it is charming and in an interesting neighborhood. Since it is such an old building and in a place like Venice I wouldn't be surprised to see a cockroach.... but doubt we're talking about an infestation!! As a New Yorker.. I could care less about a cockroach or two and would gladly grab the change to stay at La Residenzia again!

Checked my sources and wish to correct above: La Residenza is on the Campo Bandiera e Moro. And tho I'd still welcome the chanCe to stay there again, I think it would take more than change! (Tho when we stayed there the room cost $37.50.!!)

I don't know where you saw the comment on the bugs,but someone this week posted at the frommers.com message board that her room at La Residenza in Venice was
"filthy". If you look there you can see the comment.

Thank you Elanie. I saw the posting on Fodor's site as a mattar of fact. Someone a few months ago posted it. Anyone else know about this hotel?? this does not sound good.

Yow! I can't believe what I'm hearing. I stayed at La Residenza a year ago and loved it. It is indeed a 15th century palazzo with a gorgeous, antique-filled entry way and lobby (which doubles as a breakfast area). Our room was on the third floor, with a view to various church steeples, and was spacious and decorated in what I would call neo-baroque style. Clean, charming and relatively quiet, considering the hotel is in a working Venetian neighborhood filled with bustling locals (the square fronting the hotel was quite a gathering place for neighbors and their kids in the early evening). The two French- and Italian-speaking owners seemed to invest their hearts into their hotel. It was my impression they had many repeat guests.

Never saw a cockroach. Not one. And I'd stay there again in a second.
