The Ruzzini Palace Hotel is perfectly located, charming, and elegant.
With a grand staircase and beautiful chandelier made from Murano glass, this hotel is a wonderful Venetian experience in and of itself.
You can access the Ruzzini Palace from either the Rialto Bridge water taxi stop or by private boat, which will drop you off directly at the entrance of the hotel.
If you choose to arrive by water taxi, write down or save the directions to the hotel on your phone or else you will get lost. And you don’t want to get lost while carrying all of your luggage.
The hotel rooms are well furnished and large by European standards. The bathrooms are nicely renovated, and come stocked with toiletries. Our room even had a large walk-in closet, not a feature you find in many hotels.
And the view from our room was quintessential Venice!
The staff is very friendly and helpful, and speaks wonderful English.
The hotel is approximately a 10 minute walk to the Rialto Bridge and to San Marco Square… That is, if you don’t get lost.
The street side of the hotel is located in a quaint, little plaza where children play, and diners eat and drink at small outdoor cafes. I truly can’t say enough about this hotel. For the price, it can’t be beat!
