Travellers' Choice
Aquarius is situated in the Santa Croce district, far away from the mass tourism. The palace overlooks San Giacomo dell’Orio square, an authentic island in the town, living in every moment of the day, where it is still possible to enjoy the true Venetian life among people still speaking Venetian dialect and where survive shops, nice typical restaurants and bars. The San Giacomo dell’Orio church, one of the oldest churches in Venice, frames this small popular and traditional corner. The interiors have an essential, but warm design, predominately of hazelnut, Havana and cream shades. The inner space is characterized by exposed bricks and stones, wood details, glass and gilded metal. The very comfortable 27 rooms and the 5 Apartments have a contemporary furnishing, embellished by glassware, Murano chandeliers , artistic pictures and decorative elements, exclusively created by local artists and craftsmen.

The basics of the hotel are excellent, great position and layout. Design of the rooms is generally good and Murano glass chandeliers are magnificent. There are some odd interior design combinations which spoil the effect. Lovely bathroom arrangements but storage in rooms lacking any drawer space. Our suite was otherwise very comfortable and attractive.

Hotel's Favourite
We stayed 1 night at his beautiful, elegant, super clean, beautifully interior designed hotel in Venice. All staff were very friendly and helpful, welcoming. But the hotel itself is just astonishing. An old palazzo that was renovated for 4 years before it was opened in Feb short before the lock down. It is approx. 800 m from Rialto Bridge and we loved staying at this beautiful hotel. The cosmetic products are from Acqua di Parma, the lights all over the place are made from Murano glass... Just beautiful. Will come back for sure

The hotel is several notches more luxurious than most properties affiliated with the Choice family (it's part of the Ascend Collection). The renovated mansion is done with a modern design and extravagant blown glass chandeliers. The rooms are modern and elegant - I was lucky enough to get a suite, which was very spacious (but caution, it faces the square, which is noisy). Service was prompt and pleasant, breakfast was very good - because of COVID, served not as a buffet, but from order. It would have been one of my most luxurious hotel experiences, except for one rankling frustration - my phone connected to the high-speed internet with no problem, but not my laptop. I can't say for certain where the problem actually was (my computer didn't connect on the airport bus' wifi, but it did at the airport - signal strength?) but it made doing work at the hotel much harder, including a proctored COVID test I needed to take on my phone instead of laptop.

Dear FlyBalletGuy, Thank You for finding the time to write about Your experience here at Aquarius! We are happy to read that You liked how the traditional Venetian elements of the building combines perfectly with the modern interior design. The environment that we try to create at Aquarius is an elegant, quiet and yet authentic experience. We are really really happy to read that You appreciated both our structure and our service. Thank You for Your comment about breakfast: it is true that it is a service that we had to re-organize due to recent and present Covid restrictions, but we provide our guests a safe and enjoyable experience. We are sorry to read that You had a bad experience with our Internet connection. Internet is one of the "must have" services nowadays and we are a little bit surprised to read about this problem, since we have had no problems with our guests' connection so far. We will look into it. We remain at Your full disposal and we hope to welcome You again as our guest some day. In the meantime, we send You our best regards. - Hotel Aquarius Reception
