My girlfriend and I visited Venice for the first time and we were not disappointed. The Hotel Messner is full of charm, a bit of romance, and with great customer service. Off the beaten path but within minutes to all the great sites that make Venice what it is. We traveled off season, and the rate for the room was... More

I spent three nights in this hotel. It was December, so cold outside. The room itself was spotless, cosy and warm! It was cleaned each day. We where in the annex, so had to go outside, and down the street to go for breakfast The breakfast was one of the best that I have ever had in Venice, so it... More

Your score 10 This is an excellent value for money hotel in centre of Venice. Relatively easy way to get to along Giudecca Canal without having to go through crowded tourist streets. Lovely view from our window with greenery which is at premium in Venice. Also very quiet. The hotel was very nicely decorated and maintained. Breakfast was simple but... More

Ultimately, it's a two-star hotel, so the décor etc won't set the world on fire, but for what it is, it's very good. The staff are very helpful, the location fantastic and the rooms very comfortable. Breakfast seems generally to be included, and is good. The stay represented fantastic value for money; I got 10 euro off for liking it... More

We spent 3 nights at Hotel Messner 29th December - 1st January, 2015. To start with the positive experiences the location is really convenient, by foot just as well as by vaporetto or airport shuttle boat (Alilaguna) easy to reach. The breakfast was OK, their sweet breads are really nice, but the rest is average or bit below. Our room... More

Lovely location for a hotel in Venice - far enough away from the hustle and bustle of San Marco, but easy enough to get to anywhere. (Especially if you use the vaporetti - water buses. I recommend a multi-day vaporetto pass from Venezia Unica). The hotel is clean and tidy. The staff are welcoming and very helpful. The breakfast was... More

Loved this little hotel, great location - and very friendly staff. Bedroom was good size, powerful shower and the beds were v comfy : ) Brekky was good, we wouldn't have minded something hot, as was all cereals & croissants. But this was all made up in there dinner. Slightly over priced for what they offer, but all in all... More

Wow, where can I start! Location is ok, Venice is small so any where your hotel is located should be okay. Bathrooms have no toilet roll holders, no towel racks or holders and limited space. Shower door broke while in use, and shower flooded bathroom floors during use too. We called reception and asked if we could get this fixed,... More

Don't eat here! Service NONE, food horrible, house wine horrible! They don't even slice your pizza! It was an awful experience! When we asked why they didn't slice our pizza they picked up my fork and knife they sliced other pizzas just not ours. The waiter was sullen and we had to finally get up and get our own salt...

If you are used to a hostel, then this is the next step up. If you are on a tight budget and do not mind a spot with no amenities, tiny rooms/bathrooms, then this is adequate. Beware, some of the rooms share a bathroom. We had our own but, again, barely adequate. In theory this has breakfast but it was... More
