yes we are well familiarised with the experience of "European small" for rooms, but you know it's too small when the logistics of suitcase management becomes a real problem and you have to start shuffling furniture around to manage 2 suitcases. the staff were friendly, no issues. the room was clean the location was good. the breakfast was fine but...

Very good hotel, quiet back street. Gave us the opportunity to get lost to get around to find our way back to this one, each day. Very quiet to sleep in at night. No elevator but traveling in Venice, please keep it to a small bag or carry on as you most likely will have to carry your luggage from... More

Iv been to a lot of hotels in different countries but this has got to be the worst one yet. Me and my partner arrived having 4 suitcases between the two of us. No assistance was given to cart them up 4 flights of stairs as their was no lift, and the service in general is average, even poor. When... More

Okay, for a short 2-3 day stay this hotel is fair. We stumbled on this hotel, because everything was sold out during June and it had 1 room left. By the time we arrived, the hotel was fully booked. It ranged about 200 euros a night in high season. GOOD POINTS - Air Conditioned worked and it's a quiet a/c... More

The hotel is situated in a very good location as it is just a few minutes away from St Marks Square and the Rialto Bridge, close to plenty of restaurants and shops. Hotel Ateneo is like a boutique hotel; beautifully decorated having a traditional Venetian style. The breakfast room is rather small, but food was decent and plentiful. This included... More

Good location, great value hotel. Beautifully decorated in traditional Venetian style. Staff were really friendly and spoke great English, my friend was unwell and they were fantastic. Bathroom spacious, breakfast room is small but adequate and continental selection is good.

This hotel is just a few minutes walk from StMarks Square and the Rialto bridge. The rooms are tiny but this has always been our experience with centrally located traditional Venetian hotels. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. unfortunately staff at breakfast are not as welcoming. Breakfast was very basic and the dining area is far too small and cramped.... More

First of all if you decide to find your hotel in Venice on your own print a google map with the walking way to the destination and always follow the arrows with indication painted on the top of the walls. Its the best way to walk around Venice!But obviously at some point you'll end up getting lost! :) I took... More
