Spectacular - Venice's Best

Reviewed 8 january, 2022

Forget all of the big name hotels in Venice.... Al Ponte Antico is where you need to stay!..why.... service, care, recognition and utterly wonderful hospitality. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough... You will not find better owners, managers and a team all working to make your stay and experience nothing short of incredible. To find owners that care and personally manage every aspect of your stay is so rare but also every single team member made us feel special and valued beyond words. I utterly loved this hotel and nothing was too much trouble... our suite was beyond lovely and every single moment in this special hotel was a joy! I am still a bit speechless... its just special! Follow the team's advice on restaurants as every single place they recommended was sensational... we have stayed in some of the worlds finest hotels and never has service been so engaging and genuine as that experienced at Al Ponte Antico... We cannot wait to come back ... Do not book anywhere else in Venice as this is 'it'...... Thank you for making our stay so wonderful and special....


Our best hotel experience, hands down.

You should stay here. We have never been at a hotel that made us feel more at home. Our stay at Hotel Al Ponte Antico was magnificent. The owners and staff of this hotel went out of there way to make us as comfortable as possible as well as removing much of the stress that comes with travel. They were the perfect hosts. The hotel is beautiful. The location is perfect, and the food is amazing. We highly recommend staying with them if you are looking for a wonderful experience in Venice. We walked everywhere from the hotel. You can get to any part of Venice from here. We only took a water taxi from the airport and then to the train station at the end of our stay and that was due to managing luggage. The owner arranged the water taxi for us and we arrived and left directly from the dock right on the grand canal. It could not have been easier. We just loved this place. You will too.


Absolutely Amazing Hotel!!!!

I’ve never had a hotel experience quite this incredible. From the minute I arrived via water taxi (definitely recommended) and was greeted on the dock by name, the hospitality was impeccable for my entire four night stay. You genuinely feel like a family guest rather than a hotel guest from the minute you set foot inside. The hotel is beautifully restored and the decor is the perfect mix of cozy and historical Venetian opulence. The location is central and very convenient. Breakfast was delicious and having a beautiful balcony to return to for spritz hour to escape from the tourist crowds with such a beautiful view down the grand canal was fabulous. I can’t wait to visit again!


Fantastic views and service

I stayed at Matteo’s Locanda Orseola in 2008 (since closed), and when I saw he was operating this property scrambled to get into it. The location is superb, just steps from the Rialto Bridge. The views from the breakfast balcony are stunning. Matteo and his wife are wonderful hosts, and the breakfast is varied and delicious. But the service is the best part of the experience. Example: we needed covid tests to fly home. Turned out it was the weekend everyone was trying to get tested because of new regulations for employees. No appointments available, but Matteo made a call, got us documentation without an appointment, and we were able to walk in and get tested. Disaster averted. You won’t find a better host anywhere.

WOW! What a pleasure it was to stay at such a lovely hotel. I have been to Italy several times and this was by far my favorite stay. We initially booked this hotel for the amazing balcony view...but we were pleasantly surprised by SO much more. The service was superb & really made the entire trip for us. The entire staff treated us like family and they were there for our every need. This truly made the stay for us. The breakfast was excellent. We were in Italy for 2 weeks and it was by far the best. The hotel is also so characteristic of Venice and so much of it was kept the way it's been for 100's of years. It is like a beautiful palace. You will truly love every moment of your stay at this lovely boutique hotel. So don't look anymore this is most definitely the hotel for you. You will not be disappointed!!!!
