10/10 Exceptional

Hotel Pausania is a very well kept 3* hotel in the charming quarter of Dorsoduro, where some of the best museums and galleries are located. The vaporetto stop is Ca' Rezzonico, where the Alilaguna airport boat can be reached. Don't miss the opportunity to visit Ca' Rezzonico, an 18th century noble palace where you can have a glimpse of the richness of the Republic in elaborate carvngs, paintings and authentic furnishings. Brocaded walls, silken coverings, a walk-in closet with delicately hand painted doors can be seen up close. There is a cafe where you can enjoy a reasonably priced sandwich and drink overlooking the Grand Canal, a premium in Venice. The front desk manager was genteel and helpful in all matters, including help with luggage, as there is no elevator in this authentic Venetian former residence. Restaurants are plentiful a short walk away on Piazza San Barnaba. Ristoteca Oniga was my favorite, with delicious Venetian specialties, friendly service and rustic ambience. Or, turn left as you exit the hotel, cross the little bridge and head to Piazza San Margarita, a huge square lined with good, affordable restaurants, gelaterias and several ATMs. The hotel serves a good breakfast overlooking a pleasant garden. The cold cuts are above average. I would return in a heartbeat, but bring a wash cloth because they are rarely supplied in this category hotel. The towels, mattress and bedding were excellent, however. A great choice in the quiet heart of Venice.

Great hotel
Helpful staff. Very nice room. Pretty entryway to the lobby and the upstairs entry way was extra pretty with ceiling murals and chandeliers. A few sets of stairs to climb to our room, but there was a porter for suitcases if needed. Good breakfast choices and yummy cappuccinos. A bit further away from main areas. I would stay here again.

Overall we had a pleasant stay at the hotel. The room was clean and in an excellenet location. Only a ten minute walk from the airport bus and train station. The only downside was a few mosquitoes in the room and poor shower pressure. But, overall a good stay.

Lovely old hotel and great location
A really lovely old hotel in a great location. Very close to one of the best squares in Vence, Campo Santa Margherita. There are quite a few steps up to the rooms so that may not suit some people. The staff were very helpful especially as my booking had come through wrongly (probably my fault) but was sorted out without any drama.

Historic Hotel in Venice
The hotel was very far from any of the main attractions we wanted to see. The room was nice, but the bathroom was not in great condition. There were cracked tiles, rust stains, and build-up around the fixtures. The staff was cold and not very helpful. It was okay for the price, but I would not stay again.
