I am late doing this but I still have great memories of staying here last year March 2013. It was my 60th birthday and they gave me a bottle of wine. The room was great with a spectacular view of the Grand Canal. I just could not imagine a better place to stay. Thank you so much Locanda Ovidius.

Second visit to this hotel, both times had a canal view. Magnificent view of the Rialto bridge from our window and the communal balcony. Sit and watch the world go by from dawn to dawn if you wish. The hotel is very central for all parts of Venice and only a short walk to the Valperasso stop. All staff very... More

Arrived into Venice from a long trip on a very hot day to arrive to this hotel where the lady at the front desk took us to our room. She barely spoke English which was fine but when she took us to our 'room' she led us to a small door which had 'privato' listed as the number/name of the... More

We stayed at the Ovidius hotel from the 14-19th of July 2014. LOCATION : THE RIGHT PLACE if you want to be as close to everything as possible, and if you dont want to spend more time than neccessary on walking to/from the sights, restaurants and boutiques. PRICE/QUALITY : The 4 out of 5 stars show that our total experience... More

Had 2 great nights here. This hotel has an excellent location right on the grand canal and just along from the rialto bridge. Our room overlooked the canal and with a constantly changing view we could have spent hours watching the world go by. The room was spacious and clean and well maintained, although no screen on the shower did... More

Upon our arrival we were welcomed by being asked to pay the city tax - immediately- in cash. I understand that the tax is necessary but the way we were asked to pay it seemed quite rude. The receptionist even complained about the denomination (20) and wanted exact change. Our room was rather small and shabby, but pretty clean. The... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and had a lovely, quiet and comfortable time. On first arrival, we were met by a friendly lady who swiftly showed us to our room. We were a little surprised to learn our room was in the attic, but was told it is usually reserved for honeymooners. As this... More

Pros: Great location near Rialto bridge, Quaint & clean room with friendly staff at the front desk Cons: hardest mattress I've ever slept on. Bare minimum on the included breakfast Very very small shower with no door so the bathroom gets soaked whenever it's used

We really enjoyed our stay in Venice, but understand that people look for different things in a hotel so here are our pros and cons of the accommodation at the Locanda Ovidius Hotel. PROS: - Location and value for money; if you want to stay in a central location and get to all the sights by foot on a budget... More

This three-star hotel is certainly recommended for those looking for an economic lodging option. I would go back because it's value and great location in the city center. Pros: ideal location right across the Rialto water bus stop; great view of the Grand Canal; right next to many restaurants Cons: continental breakfast offers limited options
