Review Summary

Photos and Review by

Pros

  • Tranquil bar with library and fireplace
  • Location convenient to transportation and bus terminal
  • Private outdoor sun terrace with tables
  • Upscale, individually decorated rooms
  • Nice extras including free snacks and drinks
  • Quality service and attention to detail

Cons

  • Location somewhat removed from tourist attractions
  • Surrounded by modern buildings lacking typical Venice charm

Bottom Line

Hotel Moresco is a 23-room boutique on a small canal near Venice’s bus terminal. The tranquil bar with library and fireplace provides a welcoming setting where guests can relax with a drink and snack upon check-in. Spacious, bright rooms have fun names -- such as The Scribe and The Gondolier -- and include mosaics in bathrooms, flat-screen TVs, and big antique mirrors. But the hotel's location is somewhat removed from tourist attractions. Aqua Palace Hotel has a more central location, but its rates tend to be a tad higher.

Scene

A charming, detail-oriented boutique

The welcoming bar -- with an Old English club feel -- sets the tone for a stay at Hotel Moresco. It is comfortable, with book-lined shelves and a functioning fireplace, and offers free snacks and fruit all day. An outdoor terrace provides an al fresco place to bring drinks in the evening. A breakfast buffet, along with eggs cooked to order, is served in a simple, inviting room overlooking the canal.

Location

Near Venice’s bus terminal in a quiet neighborhood removed from tourist attractions

Immediately surrounded by more modern buildings, the neighborhood around Hotel Moresco lacks some of the charm of old Venice. There are nice shops and relaxed cafes nearby with more locals than tourists at the tables. This hotel is convenient to the bus terminal and public transportation, but somewhat removed from the main tourist attractions.

Rooms

Whimsical and spacious, with flat-screen TVs, minibars, and free water

Each of the 23 rooms -- with names such as The Town Crier and The Poet -- is individually decorated with pretty, patterned wallpaper and elaborate chandeliers. Attention to detail is seen in the small touches such as robes and slippers and in the décor including intricate mosaics in the bathrooms. Some rooms have balconies, some overlook the canal, and all get great natural light. Beautiful suites have vaulted ceilings and soaking tubs.

Features

Welcoming bar and private sun terrace

The Hotel Moresco provides comfortable spaces beyond the room to relax. The tranquil bar has the feel of an Old English club with a fireplace and shelves lined with books. Free snacks and fruit are available here all day; drinks are surprisingly affordable. An outdoor patio with tables surrounded by old walls is a serene place for a sunset drink.
