We stayed here 3 nights and enjoyed just about everything about it. Our only complaint was the girl who works the main desk was fairly rude an un willing to help. She made us feel like we were interrupting her big important job to answer our questions. Is she not literally there to check us in, answer our questions, give... More

Very good price/value. Comfortable location (5 mins by walk to Railway station, taxi/ bus station and at the same time - in the heart of Venice. Simple breakfast, kind staff. Rooms relatively cheep-looking, and sound-isolation is not really good. We had a room with canal view - nice and very positive.

We spent our 20th wedding anniversary (long week-end) here as we had been to Venice during our honey-moon as well. The first room (Deluxe) we got had a bath room where the whole ceiling as well as the shower wall were blackened from mold. The sleeping room showed water leakage from the A/C as well as from the fridge. They... More

The only positive to this hotel was that it was close to the train station so we could walk. The room they placed us in was right behind the reception, so because the lobby was at our door it was quite loud and could pretty much hear everyones conversations, unfortunately we don't speak Italian so we couldn't even join in....

Beware….This Hotel offered us a Return journey to Murano Glass Factory via St. Marks Square by water taxi for 10 euros each. So off we went. However the return water taxi never showed up!!!! So we had to make our own way back to the hotel at an extra cost to us.. The next day we raised this issue with... More

Hotel Gardena is in a good location – within easy “suitcase rolling” distance from Santa Lucia station (up and over the canal bridge and a short walk). This also means easy access to the many and regular water taxi services which leave just outside the station. The hotel has a quite elegance about it and is comfortable, clean and quiet... More

I really enjoyed staying at this hotel. I booked this based on proximity to the Ferrovia Train Station. Indeed, we could quickly walk here from our train on arrival and also leaving without having to buy the Vaporetto ticket immediately. Service was very good. There was almost always someone at the desk for help. Spoke very good English. Very knowledgeable... More

A lot of people come to Venice with a map and try to find their hotels late night. its not easy. getting a hotel next to the station really helps. its very easy to get lost in Venice. Nice hotel and friendly staff. breakfast was nice... More

Quiet, but Venice never really sleeps so always the noise of canal "busy-ness", which itself is relaxing........though the tide horn(s) by design are a blast. Always easy to find your way back towards the station so never lost. Highly recommend, price very reasonable (November). Enjoy.

This was the second visit to this hotel. We loved it the first time and even more this visit. It is ideally situated by the train station and bus station and water buses, close to the ghetto region of Venice which is our favourite part with lovely restaurants and bars. The hotel is very clean, and we were greeted with... More
