Dear guests, Andrea and Lucio warmly welcome you to Palazzo Guardi, magnificent Venetian palace that dates back to the 15th century. It has been completely restored and turned into 16 highly comfortable, light and airy rooms of superior standard, all furnished in typical Venetian stile. Palazzo Guardi is situated in the Accademia area, a central and strategic part of Venice, and precisely at San Trovaso which is 10 minutes on foot from St. Marks square and Rialto. It is easy to arrive using the public transport system with the nearest boat stop at either Accademia or Zattere, only 2 minutes walk away.The boat services continue throughout the day and night. This palace takes its name form the famous artist Francesco Guardi, known above all for his landscape paintings which are considered on a par with those of other illustrious Venetian artists such as Canaletto and Tiepolo. His large paintings were inspired by the scenes of the antique Venetian Republic and in old Venetian tales told the building is often mentioned. The artist was inspired for his works by the magnificent scenes that could be admired directly from this and historic residence. Palazzo Guardi is divided into 2 structures which offer our Guests maximum convenience. One building has a magnificent original central hall , with a breathtaking view over the canal and the nearby “Squero(shipyard) di San Trovaso”. Here dating back to the antique Venetian republic and up until present days, the original Venetian gondolas are constructed; those boats which have made Venice famous throughout the world. The other building has been turned into the breakfast hall which is adorned with the authentic 15th century wooden beams and decorations. This area can also be used for conferences and in summer the beautiful private courtyard provides a perfect setting for breakfast “al fresco”. The buffet breakfast can therefore be taken in the elegant breakfast area, or, if Guest prefers, it can be delivered to the room where one can enjoy, in the comfort of one’s room, the magic atmosphere of Venice. We also offer , in the central hall, a private corner where our clients are able to us a small p.c. for personal correspondence and internet. All our staff have many years of qualified experience in the hotel business. They are multilingual, speaking English, French, German and Spanish and they will make you fell at home and guarantee a warm welcome and unforgettable stay. Choosing our hospitality you will have all the advantages of a large hotel in the warm, intimate setting of a 17th century Venetian residence. We look forward to fulfilling all your needs and to making your stay memorable.

    Would highly recommend the palazzo guardi. great location and wonderful hosts! my only complaint is that we only spent 3 days / 2 nights! wish we had budgeted more time.

    It was like renting a one piece flat, and the flat was very nice and clean. but we missed coming to a receptiondesk where someone would greet us and be at our service - just the feeling of living in a hotel. not that we needed anything, but it could have added a lot of charm. fresh pastry for breakfast would also had liftet the experience.

    Breakfast can be improved, more variety would be desirable. el desayuno se podría mejorar, con más variedad, solamente hay dulces.

    Difficult to find; it would help if the website offered a detailed map of how to find property once you are in venice.

    My room was not what i expected comparing with the photos. the employees were just correct and the breakfast very poor. the good thing is the location.
