Starting our vacation in Italy, we started in Venice and stayed at Hotel Scandinavia. The front desk and breakfast staff were very pleasant & accomodating. The breakfast was good with adequate variety. Yes, we carried our own luggage up the stairs b/c theres no lift but i expected it since it was an older building. No worries/problem since i look...

The staff here was very friendly and helpful, 5 stars for that. It was the rest of the hotel that discourages me from recommending this place. There is no elevator here, which isn't a deal breaker especially because they have porters who will help with luggage. The lobby has an odd milky smell to it, and our room (especially bathroom)...

This hotel is old and gorgeous. Really charming. Staff very friendly and always have a smile. The breakfast room is small but your not in Venice to sit around for too long eating breakfast. Too many beautiful things to see. The placement of this hotel is perfect. Easy walking to anything. And what they say is very true. You must... More

This hotel was great! staff were very helpful and really friendly, continental breakfast was good. Great location only a short walk from St Marks square. This hotel is a brilliant base to explore Venice from, would definitely recommend it.

Good location within 10 minutes walk from St. Marcus Square. Rooms are adequate, breakfast the same. A good hotel for staying while exploring Venice. Management was kind and very service-minded. Internet connection was not satisfactory in our room, which was a pity since it in theory was provided. Our room did not have a view of the square at which... More

This hotel was in an excellent location! Located between the Rialto Bridge and San Marco, so it was easy to get around. Room was a nice size for 4 people but no view. Bathroom was very large. Air condition worked great!! Drawbacks: no elevator and we were on the 4th floor (porter will carry your bags up)...and breakfast variety was... More

We stayed for 5 nights and it was really good. Staff very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a great location, very easy to get to everything. Breakfast was good. When we were leaving the staff also helped take our luggage to the water taxi - which was a super help.

The staff were friendly and informative. The rooms were cramped, with extra trundle beds squashed into the smallest of gaps. As this hotel is in central Venice be prepared for lots of people noises from outside.

This hotel is very quaint and what I imagine as a European hotel. As others have mentioned, there is no elevator. A porter will take your luggage to your room but 20 of us checked in at the same time so my husband thought we would just take our own. Our room was 33 and after hauling our luggage up... More

Although the location is good I would not recommend this hotel. Basic room with shoddy furniture. tiny bathroom, no fridge and no lift. (Our romm was on the 3rd floor) . Basic breakfast in a cramped dining room. Limited wi-fi. Not good value for money.
