From check in to check out this hotel is a disappointment, it is like stepping back in time but not in a fun way, old fashioned shouldnt mean 1970s standards, the bed was old not an antique, the tv was so old fashioned and tiny we didnt even attempt to switch it on (and anyway they told us it was...

We stayed here one night only and it was great. Good location to explore the other side of venice such as the Jewish Quarter. Staff were friendly and polite. Very convenient for the train station and airport transfers. Room was small, but its Venice and you have to expect that as its part of the charm of the city.

We stayed for two nights in August and it was our first time in Venice. The location is not so bad as it is 15 minutes walking from the train station and the vaporreto. It also has a supermarket right across the street which is considered a great convenience in Venice. The room was small but that was not the... More

Other than the lackadaisical shrug about the Internet being out, the service, rooms and breakfast made this a perfect location for our visit to Venice. I was part of a group of 12 traveling, and the room as large enough for the three of us sharing to move the armoire and fit three twin beds so they were separate with... More

We had one of the older rooms. Small but very quaint. The staff was very friendly and helpful. This hotel is right on a canal and it's a perfect location for exploring the shops and businesses on the canals. From the moment we woke up to when we stepped outside we felt like we went back in time 500 years.... More

We were "upgraded" from the Hotel Atlantide over the Canal as they thought we would be more comfortable here since we were staying more than a couple of nights, which was nice. The room itself is exactly as expected and had everything we needed including a private bathroom which other budget hotels don't always offer. We had a rear courtyard... More

Booked for Atlantide we were moved into Basilea. Had a choice of a room with a view of a rooftop or a smaller room with a canal view. We choose the latter. really a beautiful view. Nice staff too. But the owner must 've known of a not proper functioning toilet. The days we spent there was not a flush... More

Dear Sir, We read carefully your review, and we would like to specify which was the situation we had to manage. You were upgraded from a booked two star hotel to a three star hotel: a certain difference of price, but you weren't charged for it. You could also have the chance to decide from two rooms, and you decided... More

We were upgraded to this 3 Star hotel. It is in a quieter area of Venice, across the canal from the train station. It's located on a nice canal and we were able to watch the gondolas going by from our canal-view room. We walked everywhere from this location--took no vaparettos. Rooms are a decent size and washrooms are large... More

We arrived at the Basilea Hotel 3rd May 2014 at about 1pm. The larger than life reception lady not what you really want after a tiresome journey, asked us to come back about 2 or 2.30pm. Our travel had started at 3am the previous day and we were exhausted but we left our luggage in reception and went for lunch... More

Dear Guest, After reading your intervention we would like to explain our reasons and why we consider this review unfair. Firstly, the Basilea is a three star hotel with the services of a three star category: as written on the voucher of your reservation and on the booking website, the check in time is at two o'clock, and especially during...

we just spent a wonderful week in Venice where we stayed at the delightful BASILEA Hotel. no, it's not luxurious, but it has spectacular touches of faded grandeur, is located on a little canal, is in walking distance of St Marks, if you're fit, and hilariously quirky! the staff we met, Marco, Gianni, Roberta and Ada could not have been...
