Only good thing (but is key to roam around venice tirelessly) is that this hotel's location allows you to drop you bag right after you arrive in venice (probably less than 100 meters walk from the station). Other than that quite mediocre. No frills hotel so can't complain too much

The hotel was very run down and carpets were very dirty. The wastepaper basket was not emptied and we found trash behind the bathroom door. That being said, the towels were always replaced and clean, the same could be said for the bedding. The breakfast was very basic. I think the hotel is good for students.

When we got to the hotel, at about 4.a.m, we were eerily greeted and led through the gate in a manner which closely resembled a scene from a horror film; with the 1920's decor to match. We went to our room to find huge steins on the carpet (which hadn't been hoovered before we got there as there were bits... More

My husband and I arrived to this hotel at around 9 pm with our huge and heavy luggage bags. Once we reached the reception desk, we literally had to wave to the receptionist for his attention even though he had already glanced at us. It was like he was intentionally ignoring us for a good 5 mins. When he finally... More

The hotel was Ok. It's situated in the heart of venice not far from the train station or the grand canal. The hotel is very old fashion. In our room there were a lot of mold witch wasn't good at all. The Wi-Fi only works in the reception area! It's ok to stay in this hotel for 1-2 days, but... More

Its an average hotel with basic facilities. It was good for a short stay and perhaps a little expensive for what you got comparing it to other 3 star hotels we stayed in in Italy but that is the case for any in Venice I think. The location is perfect. Right outside the main train and boat station. Hospitality was... More

The location is great, only 5 min from the train station and waterbus stop. Hotel room is quiet and big enough for a solo traveller. Heater automatically turns off at night. The door for the shower room is hard to close.

The Universo Nord Hotel could not be in a more convenient location--just about a block from the train station. From that perspective we didn't have far to go with our suitcases. The positives stops here. The room was too small - the bed was taking about 90% of the room. There were hard to find the spot for the suitcases.... More

The good points: - Location is fantastic!!!!! So close to the train station which makes a huge difference as you do not want to be lugging bags around especially in Venice which is lots of stairs. - The breakfast was included and not too bad - Lots of restaurants very close by and generally very close to the action. The... More
