    Great hotel and location. The only gripe is the 25 euros per person for the breakfast buffet was not worth it. Not enough food variety to justify that price tag.

    Very difficult to find- the address was for a different hotel which was badly marked so when we found it after lugging our bags everywhere we were then taken to a different hotel. Seemed very strange.

    The room was functional and the bathroom was nice with a bath. The location is good and the room is very quiet.

    The room itself was tiny, barely big enough for two people. The location was central but somehow still impossible to find because of an absolute lack of signage. All the amenities and hotel services were located offsite in a different hotel.

    It was right next to st marks square and had a beautiful bathroom.

    There were neither stores nor blinds in front of our bathroom window which was only about 3 meters away from a restaurant on the other side of the alley. The situation could only be saved by ourselves applying a blanket in front of the window. For this reason the ratings for comfort and facilities are low, only this important negative aspect prevents an excellent rating.

    VERY friendly staff, luggage was brought to main hotel close to the boat

    You do have to be prepared for a short walk from the Palazzo Salvedago to the Monaco

    It's a really great hotel and everything that you would expect as part of the Monaco and Grand Canal. Everyone at the hotel is professional and charming. Breakfast on the terrace over looking the Grand Canal is a highlight.

    The price was pretty high according to the small and dark room we got. (last year we were staying here in a much better positon room for better price)

    The best advantage the location! 20 meters from the St Marco Square. Tip: To avoid crowded places, wake up early and walk at the St Marco Square around 7:00 am.- Beatiful! Number 2 advantege: that the breakfast is served in Hotel Monaco (4*) where after 7:30 am you can have the breakfast at the terrace with the Grand Canal view.

    This hotel is an ancillary property to a very nice one so there are not facilities. Just a small reception desk and elevator to very nice rooms. We were very happy and liked it a lot. I would highly recommend. Plus the decor not too Venetian!

    Great location in Venice near St Marks and upscale shopping, nice room with wood floors and lots of windows.

    From line 2 or Alilaguna stop, you have to go over a bridge and with luggage, so this can be a problem. The hotel porter is only allowed to take your bags or pick up your bags from the Hotel Monaco door without clashing with the external porters. Can the hotel make an arrangement with the external porters? And include their charge in the price. It would not be a problem. On 23 Oct, there was a Venice Marathon and the concierge did not know that for 22 and 23 Oct the line 2 was stopping at line 1, so because of the concierge's direction, I ended up having to cross the bridge twice with heavy luggage, first to the line 2 / alilaguna cashier and then back to line 1 cashier. These are the special information that I would expect the concierge to know.

    The concierge staff were very helpful. Loved the breakfast place at Hotel Monaco which is on the bank of the Grand Canal. A fantastic way to start the day. I also loved the mosaic exhibition in the lobby of the Hotel Monaco. The location to Piazza San Marco was amazing. Inside the room, everything was good. Thank you very much!

    In all my years of travel, I've never experienced having to check in and check out at different locations. It was only while I was already enroute to the hotel did I realize that the check-in location would not be at the hotel itself but at its sister hotel. Granted it's only a several meters away but it was not ideal for travelers who just came down from the sea bus with luggages in tow who'd want nothing more than to go straight to their rooms to freshen up. A bellhop did help us with the luggages going to the actual hotel but we still had to walk, tired and all. In the same vein, you have to note that breakfast is being served at the sister hotel so beware. Also, we were first assigned a room in the noisy area with I believe a broken A/C since the room remained warm despite the humming of the A/C. But we commend the concierge who transferred us (despite a follow-up call) to a nicer room, cold and quiet. I also have to warn travelers with big luggages that while there are lifts, there are stairs in each floor albeit wheel-chair friendly (the mechanical thingie that lifts the wheelchair up and down) but actually have no ramps.

    There as a glitch on check in. Probably more to do with Booking.com than the hotel. I had booked a single room with a double bed, I was shown a single room with a single bed, not what I wanted or paid for. There was no single room with a double bed, not my problem and the hotel kindly upgraded both of us (we had two rooms booked) to superior double rooms so they got a lot of brownie points on that one.

    For the purpose of this particular visit a combination of business and pleasure the location was excellent, I would not normally stay in S Marco but it was early in the season so manageable as far as crowds. The location at this price point could not be better nor can the standard of the accommodation tasteful and comfortable and the staff were excellent. Checking in at the Monaco and Grand of course makes it more of an event and who cares if the 'annex' which I assume this is, is an easy 3 min walk away. It's Venice afterall and beauty overcomes most things.
