From what we saw on the web site compared to the actual hotel was disappointing. The front staff were friendly, especially the ladies who gave us good advice. The hotel needs a real refurbishment, our room, the stairways and the dining room were a bit shabby and tired. It was the only place in six weeks where you had to... More

We weren't expecting too much, as we hadn't paid a lot for a family room for 4 for 2 nights. We were happy with our choice. Really handy for the station & car hire depot, as well as being right on the Grand Canal. Good basic breakfast in a pleasant outside terrace, typical italian decor in the large family room,... More

Basic hotel with the smallest room we have ever stayed in - we could literally lean against the opposite walls and touch hands. There was no room to place 2 suitcases except upright beside the bed. At least the bed was comfortable, the room was clean and the Staff were extra helpful. The Wifi cost per hour or half day... More

Third time in venice and third different hotel booked. Also this time we have been lucky or we have been good on making our choice! When we made the reservation we decided to spend a little more to get a room with the view on the canal , because venice is unique and deserve to profit of all the beauty... More

The only positive thing about this hotel is the location. It's close to the bus stop and the parking garage. The hotel is old, the rooms are small, there are cracks in the ceiling and on the walls, and the bathrooms are very small. The breakfast was not good either, just a lot of dry manufacturing food. But the worst... More

I was concerned that we would be too late to check in as we were due to arrive around 2330. The hotel staff kept me informed via email prior to our trip that all would be well. 24 hour desk attendance. The check in was swift and polite, our room was tidy and clean and we slept very well. The... More

The plastic glasses and bathroom floor towel were not changed everyday. The wifi is too slow given that you need to buy wifi access. The stairs going up are not clean and the overall look of the hotel is not clean

ideally situated on the canal and directly opposite the train station for travelling. Clean basic rooms. The breakfast wasn't great. Done the job for only staying there a short time. It depends what you are looking for, but anyone stopping off travelling looking for a night or two in venice as I was, it is ideal.

Check-in was a little slow, but the front desk person was nice. Kinda creepy dark but traditional reception area. We were able to check in ahead and store our luggage in another room both before and after we checked out. I agree with other reviewers, it was old and tired, but the location can't be more convenient to the train,... More

All parameters match what "booking.com" promises. Really beautiful Murano-chandeliers indoors. Furniture/decoration is old-style as they should be in historical town. Location is good, beautiful view to Grand Canal from seaside-room.
