This hotel was located on a lovely square in a fantastic location in the centre of Venice. Ten minutes walk from both Rialto Bridge and St Marks Square. Staff were very friendly. We had a room for 4 adults with a view of the square from the windows. Air conditioning which was needed as it was so hot! Room and... More

Hotel Scandinavia is my favorite place to stay in Venice. Short walk to Piazza SanMarco. Many good places to get wine,cheese, salami,and bread nearby. Staff could not be friendlier. Place is ancient but still has modern appointments. Very good Cont. breakfast.

Spent 4 nights at Hotel Scandinavial from 21-25th July 2014 and what a great find it was.The hotel is perfectly situated just10mins from Rialto and 15mins from St. Marks Square -- this is providing you don't get lost down the alleyway/streets on your way there! The hotel has four floors (a room at the top -- which we had-- gives... More

I spent an hour looking for this hotel having got dropped off at Rialto bridge by vaporetta. To find it cross Rialto to the side with the statue and follow the street under the arch until you reach the supermarket and take the street on the left over the bridge into Campo Santa Maria Fermosa. Its should only take 5... More

First of all we had a very hard time to find this place. Directions said it was 5 minutes from the vaporetto station. Well, maybe if you are a great athlete and know EXACTLY how to find this hotel. But if you are first time in Venice, forget it - you will be walking endlessly in the labyrinth of bridges... More

We stayed for two nights at this hotel in Venice. Reception staff were very friendly and able to recommend places to go for gondola rides and restaurants. No lift though so lots of stairs to climb which was not a big deal for us, just meant extra work for my boyfriend to carry all our luggage downstairs when we checked... More

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
