The Great Location near Santa Lucia train station can NOT excuse the terrible service and the appalling state of the room. It completely ruined my husband first ever experience of Venice. An Heartbreaking experience for me as native of the region. Venice and Italy really HAS to do better. anna

Last thing you need in Venice is to pick a hotel a long way from the train station.The number of bridges and steps along with the cost of water taxis really makes it hard. So this hotel literally minutes from the station is a good idea.It is run down and worn out but so is most of Venice. Hotel was... More

extremely close to all transports including the Vaporettos and the main train station. few stairs to negotiate but staff very willing to help. Breakfast more than adequate. Should this hotel be full ask the manager to recommend two other hotels owned by the same family where service and value for money is also available

It is very close to train station. It has extremly extraordinary design. In order to arrive your room you should climb up and down stairs and turn a lot but I think it's enjoyable you fell like you stay in a place. Rooms are clean staffs are cheeryful

Very near the station and Piazz. Roma so good from that point of view. Room and breakfast OK. Staff polite. Got a deal from an internet company which proved very good vfm for Venice. For a short stay if one is not too fussy this place is fine

Located close to the main bus and train stations made this very convenient for arrival in Venice and for departure. It's a no frill hotel. Rooms on several levels with hotel staff ready to carry your luggage to your room on arrival. Be warned however they expect a tip in return. My advice is carry it yourself if you don't... More

This hotel,has miles of corridors and stairs - just about need a map to find your room! Definitely recommend travelling light in Venice! Good,rooms would be at back, overlooking 'garden'. free wifi only... More

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.
