Hotel was very central within easy walk to both railway,buses & water buses. Hotel is sited on the bank of the Rio Marin Canal and we were lucky enough to have a canal view. Room was basic but both comfortable and in a quiet location. Reasonably priced restaurants within a short distance would recommend "Ostaria at Vecio Pozzo". Breakfast was... More

I stayed here with a field-trip group from my university. I have to say very friendly and nice staff, especially Marco. You get what you pay for, which for me was good value for money. Do not forget that Venice is ridiculous expensive so I thought the hotel was great value for money. Also, close to railway station, walking distance... More

We had three single beds crammed into a room clearly only big enough for one. The beds were separated by a couple of centimetres and blocked the door. I'm skinny so I could get through the door but other people could not. The fire alarm came pre-smashed, the bathrooms had mould and peeling paint and the breakfast was inedible. Great... More

We read with much displeasure your review, and would like to explain what was the actual situation. You stayed at our hotel with a school group, and your class booked multiple rooms for all the students, some of which can accomodate up to five people. You should know that in Venice there's a standard size for every kind of room:... More

We stayed as teachers with a large school group and while some of the students' rooms had modern bathrooms, my colleague and I were given a room which had a bath with a detachable shower head (ie: you'd have to sit in the bath and squirt yourself) and the bathroom window was held together with masking tape (see picture).

We were very puzzled after reading your review because, in many parts, it's simply incomprehensible. At first, you have been assigned a room with bathtub, where effectively was just been broken a window: while waiting the arrival of the carpenter, in this manner we repaired, at the moment, the damage. However, after your complaints, you were moved to another room,... More

We stayed for 2 nights. The hotel is located within walking distance of the train station which is convenient for check-in. The room is of decent size and clean. The toilets where clean however it had a very strong piercing chemical smell which my husband and I really couldn't stand. Only on the second day the receptionist on duty there... More

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
