Have never felt compelled to write a review until I stayed here. Though the front desk staff was nice and the bathrooms were acceptable, there were bugs all over the room and the sheets and towels were dirty and smelled bad. Even for the price, it's not worth it

We stayed here for 3 night over New Year's Eve. We thought the location was very good and the price was reasonable (we paid around £300 for 3 nights). The hotel was very basic and met are needs, but do not expect any luxuries. However on our 1st night we had an ant infestation and when we asked to move... More

Absolutely terrible!! The place was run-down, old and so dirty. The rooms were teeny and barley enough room to sit normally on the toilet. The staff - horrible. We asked for a 6am wake-up call to catch the train (because our phones would not sync properly with the time difference) but no one ever called. When I went downstairs to... More

Overall average hotel but wasn't told in advance that breakfast was at another hotel 5 minutes walk away. This was poor 2 dry rolls and a cup of weak coffee. No hot water for 2 days couldn't report this at night as no one on reception so cold shower ugh!!. Wouldn't use this hotel again.

The Hotel was good. There was almost no front desk service. It is an average Hotel with a good location. Easy to get from train station, 15 min walk to St. Mark, far enough of the crowd. I do recommend, as a 30 seconds walk from the Hotel there is one of the best Italian Restaurants I ever eat in... More

It must be understood that Venice is not cheap to stay in. Nevertheless I thought the rate here was somewhat extortionate considering the rooms were not what I would describe as clean, the location was okay but not superb and the staff had the unmistakable whiff of superiority. If you hadn't already worked it out I did not think Hotel... More

The hotel had a good location to the vaporetto and was close to many things. The room was a fine size with a view onto one of the rivers. The bathroom was tiny and the shower dripped and made the whole floor wet. The overhead light had exposed wires, and the side lamps had melted and burnt lampshades. We closed... More

I paid €35 per person a night. The location is right in the centre of Venice, 1 minute walk from the vaporetto and gondola crossing. After crossing, in 10 or so minutes one can get to piazza San Marco. Everywhere is in walking distance, and means you can get to the popular attractions before everyone else without getting up too...

My stay at Hotel Iris as a single traveler for two nights has prompted me to write this review, and warn people. Upon arrival I was asked to pay upfront in cash which I complied with but thought odd. In the evening, after detecting small pill-bugs on the headboard of my bed in a small room that was in the... More

The hotel are decent. I'd stay there for couple nights last year and really enjoy it. The location are typical Venice Accommodation. Everybody may have to walk little further around the island because there's not really public transportation except the taxi boat. The hotel are always quiet and safe at night. I recommend this hotel for budget travellers
