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

The hotel is at a very convenient location and reasonable priced. Room quality is good and so are the amenities. Pros: - Location: Very close to the train station which is also a good hub for the boats - Price: Venice can be quite expensive, the hotel was very resonably priced - View: I got a triple room at the...

We spent only 1 night in Venice in mid-October 2014, but really enjoyed our stay at the Gardena. Peter in reception was fabulous! He set us up for a gondola ride at a discount and was very helpful. The hotel rooms are pretty and very clean and the breakfast room is gorgeous as well as the lobby. The breakfast was... More

Although the room was clean, it was extremely out dated. It also felt like they shoved a mattress in a room that was too small. The breakfast was your typical continental breakfast nothing special. The staff was excellent, always willing to provide help and service. Since Venice has a million bridges all with stairs, we were glad that the location... More
