    Breakfast service is served at hotel Monaco: we have to got out , even if its not very far , and if the view from the hotel is nice.
    it's not so convenient. above all in winter when it's cold

    This was a return visit for us. The location is excellent - we love being near St. Mark' Square, the Vaporetto stop, Grand Canal, and loads of restaurants.

    No services other than check in desk and that was not spelled out on web site. Breakfast not included and not clearly stated on reservation. I feel like all of your attention goes to the Hotel Monaco and we were in the "overflow" hotel. The one selling point is your location. Of our vacation, this was our least favorite hotel.

    The hotel was a good value for the quality of the rooms, location and for its access to breakfast at the Monaco's waterfront terrace. The staff were friendly and professional.
    The lobby of the Palazzo Selvadego itself is small and cramped, but given the little time one has to spend there, its a minor inconvenience. We were traveling in a family group that occupied 5 rooms. Some rooms are very large and even peek at the Grand Canal, others are cramped and face a lightwell, but all seem to be the same price...
    The access to WiFI, which is a necessity nowadays, is inconvenient, given that one must go to the Monaco lobby.

    Die Wegbeschreibung zum Hotel und die Beschriftung des Hotels ist absolut ungenügend. Wir haben es erst nach mehrmaligem Fragen finden können. Wenn wir mindestens gewusst hätten, dass dës zum Monaco gehört, wäre uns schon sehr geholfen gewesen. Trotzdem die Unterkunft war sehr zufriedenstellend. Beste Grüsse M.M.

    La verdad es que yo iba muy ilusionada pero al ver la habitación me desilusioné... pensaba que iba a tener vistas bonitas, y no fue así... el baño NO TENÍA BAÑERA... Pienso que el precio es muy alto para lo que ví, además el desayuno MUY POCO VARIADO. Me arrepiento de no haber exigido otra habitación con mejores vistas.

    The location is great. The breakfast was very poor for a 4 star hotel. It consisted of coffee ,fruit juice and croissant. The front of house staff were very unhelpful, in fact very rude.

    Some of the front desk employees were very bold and abrasive, not what a frequent hotel customer would expect. I would expect more professionalism from what seems to be a hotel catered to international guests.

    Young reception staff is not good service and not good at speaking English. For example,our stay plan is called ’’Freedom VENEZIA '' with many award so 72 hours water bus free thiket , free casino entrance ticket and VIP discount shopping tikets.But when we checked in,we did not have received it by hotel reception staff so we request it but not good response and reception staff said "Is it true that you don't have received awards?We were surprised to hear these words and disappointed.

    The hotel is really close to the "piazza di San Marco".
    The entrance is hard to find.
    The real advantage is the breakfast you take at the hotel monaco (100m), which is on the "gran canal".

    I thought that the Room will be bigger compared to the picture on the web.
    And one thing very important for us is the breakfast. If we consider the quality of the hotel, it's a shame to pay when we want eggs or ham or fruits ! And no fresh bread and no fresh orange juice ! It's the negative point of this hotel for us.

    Really is the perfect location. Check in at the Hotel Monaco and they walk you back to the Palazzio...Hard Rock Cafe is right behind the hotel and you are right next to square...really was an enjoyable place to stay. Breakfast wasn't great, 2nd to arrive and last to be served...guess you might not want to look like you're checking out. Really was the only thing that went wrong.
    Will stay there again.

    Excellent location - a stone's throw from St Mark's Square and, despite having to go to another building for breakfast, this turned out to be a bonus as it was served on a terrace overlooking the grand canal! The room was dark and fairly cramped although the en suite was more spacious and spotlessly clean. Would certainly recommend this hotel.

    An excellent hotel in the excellent tradition of Monaco & Grand Canal.
    Room cleaning between two guests could be better, and continental breakfast a bit more generous for its price.But the unique location of the restaurant in front of the Salute made us forget these details

    The hotel is tucked away in a street close to the Monaco and you would never know it was there if you weren't shown! The room was very nice, not huge, but smart and newly fitted out. It was very nice to take breakfast on the terrace of the Monaco, only a couple of minutes walk. Very good value if you take one of the 3 day special offers and get a 3 day free transport pass. The room was lovely and quiet by the way. I would stay there again.

    Excellent Hotel in the center of Venezia (San Marco square, near to the vaporetto station (boat transport) public and alilaguna boat transport to airport.
    Modern and good decoration of the rooms. No noises in the rooms. Excellent bathrooms. If you want to cook in the room is possible because the rooms have a small cooking bar.
    On the other hand, the brakfast is out of the Palazzo is in the Hotel Monaco (but near to the Palazzo) and there aren't continental breakfast.

    The breakfast is very bad. With terrible white bread, bad croissant, packed toast (impossible in a very good hotel)and sugary muffins. It is a shame to have such an horrible breakfast, with excellent service and a lovely view to the lagoon, in such a nice hotel where I have stayed several times as a single traveller.

    Excelente trato del personal del hotel ayudando en todo momento ante cualquier duda.
    Muy buena la situación del hotel , al estar totalmente céntrico (detrás de la plaza S.Marcos).
    El desayuno en el hotel MÓNACO estaba bien. La habitación nos pareció muy buena ( grande y espaciosa )
    Me parece muy buen hotel (todo bastante nuevo) y lo recomiendo(por su ubicación está muy cerca de todo).
    Además , tanto las paradas de los vaporettos , como la parada de los barcos de Alilaguna que van al aeropuerto está a penas 100 mts.

    Palazzo Selvadego is a depandance of Monaco a Grand Canal Hotel. Perfect location, nice accommodation. Check in on the main reception on Monaco Hotel. Small reception non-stop on Palazzo. We saw some reviews with critics for the staff , but our experiences are only positive, maybe we were luck :-) . Friendly professional staff all around. Small continental breakfast will start you to the nice day, who want more ... see bars and snacks around. We had a pleasant stay.

    Whilst I booked for the Palazzo Selvadego in a superior double room, on arrival at the Monaco Hotel to check in we were upgraded to that hotel - and what a hotel. The only reason that this could not be a 5star hotel is the smallish size of the room but don't let that put you off. I have read other reviews from those who have stayed here who complain about the breakfast. My only comment is - what do they expect ? Continental breakfast is just that. If you want any more then pay for it!. Personally there was plenty of "Continental" to satisfy us both, and the tea was as good as at home !
    Everything about this hotel is first class and luxurious. Expensive but worth every penny.
    Very close to St Mark's Square and right on the Grand Canal the location is central and Venice is so easy to walk round that this location was excellent. Eating breakfast and watching the Gondoliers preparing for the day was rather special - even in the rain!
    If you don't like being pampered - fresh sheets daily and towels changed twice a day - then find somewhere else to stay.

    My room was nothing like the pictures, It was a clean room but abit small but because we was there for a special occasion and we wanted something special we ended up upgrading to the main hotel where you check in.
    If it was just a normal city break I would recommed this hotel to everyone of my friends. The staff are nice and very helpful and the rooms are really well looked after.

    Building is much as described and service pleasant. Breakfast is elegantly served in a waterside room of the Monaco Hotel, of which the Selvadego is a nearby annex. One small caution - if your room price includes 'continental breakfast' that does not include e.g. the delicious fresh fruit salad shown on the priced menu on your table in the breakfast-room - you will be charged for anything you order from that.

    Il giudizio sarebbe stato positivo se non fosse per il fatto che, contrariamente a quanto proposto nelle foto del sito, la mia stanza non faceva parte del palazzo medievale ma di un palazzo adiacente. E, soprattutto, che nonostante avessimo chiesto una bella vista, la nostra finestra affacciava sull'ingresso dei bagni pubblici, con l'insegna "WC Toilette" in "primo piano"!
    Il giudizio è pertanto negativo.
