Bottom Line

The 28-room Hotel Do Pozzi is a typical lower-middle-range hotel with classic Venetian decor -- ornate in the lobby, sparser in the rooms -- and limited amenities. It's located right in the heart of Venice, a four-minute walk to St. Mark's Square and a two-minute walk to the Grand Canal. Rooms are simple but tasteful, with wooden floors, air-conditioning, satellite TVs, and minibars, and there's a free breakfast served either in the breakfast room, the outdoor courtyard, or right in guest rooms. The nearby Hotel Violino d'Oro offers comparable digs with more ornate decor and a small cocktail bar, though its entry-level rooms are located in a less-desirable annex.

Oyster Hotel Review

Hotel do Pozzi

Scene

Simple tourist hotel with classic Venetian decor

The Hotel Do Pozzi is situated in a typical Venetian building with a flat, cream-and-yellow facade and wrought-iron ground-floor window details. The main entrance is in an interior courtyard, which also serves as an outdoor seating area for the hotel. The tiny lobby/lounge and reception are the hotel's most charming features, with classic Venetian elements including lively red wallpaper, beige-tiled floors, and rich-red rugs, while dark-wood furniture and sconce lighting add elegant flair. The breakfast room off the lounge is the hotel's only other common area. The hotel has three stories worth of rooms and an elevator access, not always the case in Venice. The hotel's exceptional location make it popular with leisure travelers.

Location

Exceptional location in heart of Venice's tourist area, a four-minute walk to St. Mark's Square

The Hotel do Pozzi is exceptionally well-located in the San Marco district in the heart of Venice, walking distance to restaurants, high-end shops, and major attractions. Several attractions can be reached in minutes on foot, including La Fenice Theater (two minutes), San Moise Church (three minutes), Contarini del Bovolo Palace (six minutes), St. Mark's Square (four minutes), plus Dodge's Palace (seven minutes), and Rialto Bridge (11 minutes). Guests can walk to the Grand Canal and the nearest water bus station (S. Maria del Giglio) in around two minutes, while Marco Polo Airport is an hour away via boat.

Rooms

Pleasant rooms with wood floors, AC, mini-fridges, and satellite TVs

Rooms at Hotel do Pozzi range in size and style (even rooms within the same category). Guests Rooms are clean and decor is simple and dated, but tasteful, with light-wood floors, white walls, and plain white or classic Venetian furniture with elegant gilded edges and painted details. Many rooms have beautiful exposed wood beam ceilings. Rooms are air-conditioned and usually include wardrobes and desks along with safes, minibars, and small satellite TVs. As is the case with many Venetian hotels, double beds are actually two twin beds pushed together and rooms lack tea- and coffee-making facilities. Street-facing rooms may get noise, especially in the mornings when businesses start opening, so light sleepers may want to consider courtyard-facing rooms. Larger Rooms that can accommodate small families are also available.  Bathrooms are fully tiled and include toilets, bidets, sinks, and walk-in showers or shower/tub combos plus hairdryers and free individual toiletries.

Features

Free Wi-Fi, free breakfast in rooms or in a courtyard, and baggage storage

The hotel has few extra property features, but it offers a 24-hour reception desk with basic concierge services, baggage storage, and free Wi-Fi (though there have been occasional complaints of slow speed). A decent (but windowless) breakfast room serves up a decent free breakfast with fruit, cereal, and baked goods. Guests can also order breakfast room service or, in warmer months, eat outside under umbrellas in the courtyard. Small pets are allowed free of charge.
