This was our first visit to Venice and location was a key factor in our choice of hotel - just 5mins walk from St Mark's square and the Rialto bridge. The price was reasonable considering our late booking being during the Easter holidays; compared to other hotels I wouldn't describe it as being expensive as mentined in other reviews. The... More

We stayed here recently for 3 nights and thought it was a lovely hotel. The room was very basic, but very clean, and contained everything we needed. As we were out sightseeing all day we just wanted somewhere nice to come back to in the evening and this fit the bill. It was a little hard to find at first,... More

Staff speak English and they are the most helpful! I had difficulty with the Air Canada pilots going on strike and plane was cancelled. Well, the staff helped me place phone calls to get a new airline for departure! They are great! Excellent location for the St. Mark's Square.............Remember, go by Squares at Venice so you won't get lost! Hotel... More

We really enjoyed our stay so close to Rialto bridge and San Marco Square. Beautiful old Venetian building facing a square where you can experienc the Italian way of life. Although there is'nt a lift the staff was very helpfull to carry our luggage. We can certainly recommend this hotel.

Our favourite City is Venice and my wife and I have visited perhaps seven or eight times: we even became engaged on a gondola (of course supping Champagne) over ten years ago! Every different hotel we have stayed in has been good - but if we had to choose the best one, it would have to be Hotel Scandinavia. We... More

This hotel was close to what we needed and everywhere was walkable. Unfortunately, our window overlooked a walkway, so we heard a lot of noise. At 3:00 am it was quite disturbing. Our last day at the hotel, we inquired about the best way to get to the airport (since we came in via train). The hotel explained which water... More

Never having been to Venice before, we chose the Scandinavia because it looked quite well located (and the reviews were good). Well, we were right about the location, because it's pretty much perfect. The room and bathroom were spacious and a pleasure to use and it’s a friendly hotel too; the members of staff that we met were really helpful.... More
