Amongst the hotels in Venice, Hotel Commercio & Pellegrino boasts a lengthy tradition. Indeed, as can be read in guides from that period, a "Pellegrino" hotel was already operating in the nineteenth century, a harbour for many Italian and foreign travellers. Housed in a palace that can be dated back to the XVI century, the hotel has recently been renovated to provide a more modern and inviting facility. Laid out over four floors, its interiors are furnished with taste and simplicity and are serviced by a convenient lift. Marble and pale wood fittings are featured in the hall and dining room, which overlooks the Calle delle Rasse. At the Hotel Commercio & Pellegrino, the day begins with a buffet-style breakfast. During winter afternoons, when Venice is nestled in fog, guests are served complimentary pastries at tea time. Client service at reception is available 24 hours a day. On rainy days, the hotel provides umbrellas to its guests. Nearby path leads from the Riva degli Schiavoni to the Giardini, ideal for jogging because of the ample space and paved surface in a unique setting. Our attentive staff can provide advice so that guests can feel at home even in a hotel in Venice: If you plan to stay in Venice for at least three days, it is worthwhile to use tourist vouchers (for families, available by the day or by the week) available at the A.C.T.V. or Ve.La ticket offices. These vouchers offer substantial discounts and allow you to make frequent use of public transportation. When packing your clothing for a summer visit, it is worth remembering that in many places of worship, you must be dressed appropriately to enter (shorts and sleeveless shirts are not permitted). Our staff are discreet and courteous, and happy to provide advice or suggestions to allow guests to fully appreciate beauty and splendours of Venice: making reservations for a concert, an exhibition, recommending a restaurant or traditional "bacaro".
