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

The location of the hotel is great but overall I was far from impressed. That was the worst bed I ever slept in (a couch bed that caved in in the middle, superb) and breakfast was very poor. If anyone is staying there, though, make sure you visit Ai Gondolieri for lunch or dinner. They serve really delicious typical Venetian... More

We booked this hotel because of the very good location. Not to busy part of Venice but just 7 minutes walk from the Vaporetto Accedemia. From there it is not far to walk to Piazza San Marco. The rooms of this hotel are located in different buildings but just a few metres away from the central building of Messner. We... More

I was booked in a room in the annex of the hotel. The room was much smaller than it appeared in the photos. The shower was clogged on the first night of my stay. Rather than fixing it, the bald fat Italian guy behind the desk said angrily to me that it was Sunday and no plumber was available. No... More

stayed in the bigger part of the hotel in the very hot summer, air conditioned rooms were bliss! the shower was average and clean. the hotel is easy to get to and from to the Doge Palace and there are some great restaurants along the edge near the hotel.would stay here again.

I went with family two weeks ago, after searching to stay in Venice instead of the usual Mestre. It was a good hotel, and quickly to arrive after taking a vaporetto, though it is hidden in a small alleyway, so you take time to find it. Our room was large (had three beds and good storage space), but the bathroom... More

Rooms appear clean but very small and the hotel appears spooky.We reached the hotel today and are guided to a building few blocks behind the original hotel.The wifi connectivity doesn't connect at all and the hotel staff is unapologetic about it.We slept hungry as there is no option to eat at this hour
