If you can, please please avoid this hotel at all costs. We stayed here for two nights and these nights ruined our stay in Venice. The breakfast is terrible at best. The location is quite far from the train station (had to haul our luggage for 20 minutes to get to the front desk and upon calling the hotel they... More

The hotel was in a great location. It is located on one of the smaller waterways and has a little bridge right next to the front door. Our room had 2 windows overlooking the little waterway. The hotel is also located on the main road that takes your directly to San Marco Piazza and the bus/train terminals. Immediately outside the... More

While I recognize light sleepers might find the ambient noise outside Hotel Forcola prohibitive to slumber, I doubt there's any place in Venice that would be exempt from that scourge. Having gotten that detail out of the way, let me proclaim Hotel Forcola an ideal spot for my visit in Venice. Elegant, intimate, and staffed by helpful and friendly personnel,... More

Hotel was in a great location- 15 minute walk from San Marco Piazza and the train station. very close by to the Bille supermarket, where you could buy cheap merchandise and groceries. Charming little building, but could be so much more with a little more maintenance (mostly painting the dingy walls). Room was small but efficient. Linens were cleaned daily.... More

This small hotel is just a few vaporetto stops (San Marcuola) from the train station. Our room looked over a small square & the rooftops of Venice. The breakfast buffet was simple & sufficient. The bathtub was a little strange (I'm sorry I didn't take a picture of it) but the room was fine, nothing spectacular but good for sleeping.... More

Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights on my own and was very happy with everything. Staff were kind (and I gather a lot aren't in venice). Room was big enough, clean and and actually very nice if you don't count the scuff marks on the walls. Working air conditioning (much needed) and even a balcony! Good location- 2 minute... More

A little rough in bathroom but linen changed daily and cleaned well. The bathroom is a crazy set up but functional. Location is good. Close to grand canal, supermarket, casino and general shops. Air conditioned. Breakfast is fresh. Quiet area in back rooms. Good budget hotel.

The hotel is in 10 min walking distance to train station. When you have to go to bus station with yr luggage pay the 10 euro for porter service because you have to cross a large bridge with a lot of steps. The hotel was clean and the staff very friendly. I read a couple of reviews before I left... More

I have just come back from staying at La forcola for the past five days and I want to give them a balanced review. So lets start with the good, firstly the price was excellent (I know its off season so there are some good deals around) and secondly by Venetian standards the breakfast was really quite good, fresh croissants...
