Stayed here in a triple room in September 2011. Very near the main station. Was here for a night only. There was no elevator so had to lug all our luggage up to the room. The other 2 persons were seniors so had to lug all the stuff myself. The hotel was on an open smelly drain with the entry... More

Stayed here for three nights. Great location - once you can find it. Rooms pretty small. A little loud at night. Bathroom clean and nice. Nice free breakfast. Staff members very helpful and nice. Would definitely recommend it as a short stay in Venice.

Great Hotel, next to train station-walking distance. Room was clean and spacious. We had a room with a big balcony with view on small park. Brekfast was also good. Staf great and frendly! We had no complains.

Great little hotel. Rooms are small but spotless and well equipped. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Few steps to the Grand Canal and loads of bars, shops and restaurants. Close to the mainline station and water taxis. Good choice of breakfast, again with lovely staff. Would definitely stay again.

stayed here for three nights. Arrived at 1.ooam in the morning after a delayed flight, was quite difficult to get into as went to main reception door (no. 381) but had to ring the bell next door at 380 to gain entrance. Night porter seemed a bit grumpy at getting woken up, but showed us to our room which was... More

If your main priority is easy access to the train station, in a pleasant location, you’re unlikely to find a better hotel than Il Mercante di Venezia. It took us 5 minutes to walk from St Lucia station (with luggage plus a baby), without crossing any canals. No bridges to cross, no queuing for boats, just a 5 minute walk.... More

Room is clean and tidy. Staff at reception counter was so nice. Location is great, very near train station, just few minutes walk. But the hotel sign is so small, and we can get to the hotel via a tiny pathway, make me feel not safe. Btw, it is convenient to go to any places from this hotel.

We all know that Venice is not cheap but we found this hotel with 40 EUR/night. The hotel is situated near the station in a quiet area but very close to restaurants, souvenir shops and Grand Canale. The staff is very friendly, they are speaking english and French as well. The room was small but clean and nice, decorated in... More

When we showed up, they said they did not have our Expedia booking and for us to get our room, they increased the price and wanted cash, half up front! We had to find an ATM and withdraw a large amount of extra cash (I'm stuck paying the ATM fees, too, of course), and it was not the best start... More
