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

I was looking for a hotel inside the city and close to central district. Reading the comments, I was a little bit afraid to stay in the annexe. Forget everything, the annexe are really a good place to stay, of course, you do not book a room for a romance, at 40€ it's a amazing deal in Venice where everything... More

This was the second time our family group of 7 (3 parents and 4 adult children) stayed at Hotel Messner. We originally chose it because the reviews on TripAdvisor and other sites were quite positive and the price was very good. We arrived in the morning, so our rooms were not ready, but they willingly stored our luggage while we... More

The staff was helpful, the location was excellent, the price was wonderful, the rooms were spotless. My only complaint is the shower, it was in very poor condition. Overall great experience and I would stay there again.

I had an amazing experience in Hotel Messner. The room was good and really clean. The shower a little small but that didn't bother me. The A/C worked really well. Location was a but far from the train station but close to a water bus and tourist attraction. The staff were extremely helpful and kind.

We visited as a family during the half term break. It was a return visit to Venice and this hotel for my husband and I, but for our adult children it was a first visit. The Hotel Messner is perfect if you want a quiet place to retreat to after the hubbub of the tourist trail.It is based near the... More

We eventually found the entrance to reception after a couple of minutes as the hotel is in I think 3 separate buildings. We were shown to our room in the annex on the top floor shortly after. The room was basic but that's all we needed as we planned on being out as much as possible to make the most... More

After arriving from the train station we were quite eager to drop our stuff off and wonder around beautiful Venice. It took about 10 minutes for someone to come and check us in. We were then guided to another part called the 'annexe' which was a couple of buildings down the road. We were given the key and told that... More
