Everything about our stay in Venice was "no fuss" which was such a relief after coming from Rome which seemed to be a city of chaos. Hotel Al Malcanton is a straight forward hotel offering an okay nights sleep (you can feel the springs in the mattress a little) in a large clean room with air condition, great wifi and... More

We had a pleasant stay at this hotel Close to bus station 10 minute walk Rooms were comfortable and clean and breakfast adequate. Not much interaction from the owner but he wasn't rude and happy to give information if asked.

We stayed here for 3 nights in march. I have nothing bad to say about this hotel. It was tricky to find, but you can download the map from their site. The receptioner is not grumpy, as it has been written in some reviews here. The hotel is barroque style, is clean and comfortable. Would highly recommend it!

We stayed here for New Year's Eve, so it was really crowded and prices in Venice were higher than ever. This hotel, however, had a fair price compared to others. The location is good, near to the train station, but not far from Rialto. The room was large and clean and the bathroom too. There was a poor choice of... More

If you book this hotel, make sure you've got good directions. It's not easy to find, and there's no hotel sign on the building. Check in was OK, we quite warmed to the grumpy owner and liked the challenge of trying to coax a smile out of him during our stay. We had a surprisingly big room for Venice, and... More

Stayed 4 nights sharing a twin room . Owner wasn't rude as previously described he called us to check what time our flight got in and to give is more directions once we'd arrived from the airport. He speaks amazing English and other languages appeared to trip off his tongue when greeting other guests. Quiet location for the hotel but... More

We stayed at this hotel only one night on our way to other destinations. The location was very convenient considering that the bus station Piazzale Roma was less than 10 minutes walk from the hotel and it was not too far away from the San Marco square (around half an hour walk). The room was clean. There was enough space... More

Very happy. Beautiful room, good quality furnishings, powerful shower, on the ground floor on a small courtyard but very quiet. Two good nights sleep. Good location in the dorsoduro, with some great bars and restaurants around. Yes the owner is perhaps not the friendliest chap, but still very civil. Would stay again.

First of all, this is NOT a hotel, its a 'bed and breakfast' so if you're looking for a nice hotel don't book this place... rooms are large but 'breakfast' is taken in the hotel foyer and it is watched over by the rude owner from his desk and it makes you feel a bit like 'Oliver' asking for more...
