We booked an apartment with a shared bathroom, thinking we would be sharing a bathroom with others visiting or a halls of residence (Uni) kind of set up). We arrived to find we were effectively staying in a room of someone else's flat. The people who resided in our apartment also had family living across the hall, so the flat... More

Booked online, didn't even get the room that you booked for.. no apology, owners of the hotel planned it all out before you even arrive to stick you in another type of room.. even said things like "yeah you pre-paid, i got the money and you not happy nothing I can do, you are wasting your time talking to me"...

We enjoyed a very pleasant stay at Hotel Ariel Silva in early May. This was before the crowds get too imposing. The hotel was quiet. It is a bit off the main route east from the train station. Calle della Masena is just a narrow walk-way but I had explored the area on Google Maps using Street View before we... More

If you want to stay in a four season type place, don't bother. But if you are with a family like I did, this place is wonderful! We had a 3 bedroom apartment with kitchen and clean bathroom. It was centrally located but a little off the main path so you still had peace and quiet. The front desk is... More

When we arrived the man who let us in was so rude I couldn't believe it. We were told we had to pay extra to stay in the hotel because apparently we booked an annex 1 mile away! Which I don't beeline was true. Our shower leaked and we had to be moved. Breakfast was supposed to be included but... More

Dear potential booker, We selected this hotel for its location, and only for it. As we were there, the man in the reception, who was BTW totally rude and impolite, told us that we had to spend the night in the "annex". This meant we had to walk 1,5 Km to reach the place where we could sleep. We found... More

Ok, so the service wasn't the best and the receptionist wasn't always cheerful, but for the price in that location you can't complain! Clean, quiet room with all you need to get some rest after a busy day in Venice! The location was good, close to the train station and easily walkable to all major attractions. Not advisable if you... More

I was really dissapointed because the guys in the reception were really unfriendly and even when we needed to charge the phone before we leave this guy was very rude... be careful! look other places, besides when we arrived they mentioned that they do have internet access in the reception area so our last day we only wanted to use...

Really everything about this hotel was inadequate, even the price! I realise Venice is an expensive city, but one would expect a hotel not to have dirty sheets, a disgusting sewage/ mould smell, doors opening onto filthy streets, thin walls, and shared bathroom. Avoid at all costs.
