We stayed for three nights just for somewhere cheap to see Venice. We opted for a shared room, as it was the cheapest option, and only had to share for one of the nights. Private bathroom, friendly reception staff, good location, reasonable bed. Spthe nearest supermarket is a bit far walking, however it probably feels like less time when it's... More

We were two american girls traveling through, and this place was great for just coming back to relax and then sleep. Everything was clean, the shower was nice and hot, the worker made the bed in front of me so it was clean as well. A great location as well, we were able to walk our big luggage all the... More

Stayed here on our way back through Italy on our way home. We had just gotten off the overnight ferry from Split, which was a terrible night, so we were looking for somewhere last minute. Lots of bad reviews, but we were at the point of just wanting a bed and a shower. So we took the risk, and it... More

We definitely had some problems with the room itself, but the staff was pretty friendly, and we were glad to have the hotel so close to the Mestre train station. Just a one-minute walk to the hotel, and when we wanted to go into Venice itself, it was only a couple euros to take the train. We were only staying... More

The single room had sheets, a pillow, a towel, a sink with soap and a mirror, a closet, a table with a fan (it was very hot at night) and a radio clock. I needed to look for a hotel that day so I was searching for something just available, so in the end this was one of the only... More

You can't expect more for that price. All you need is there: tiny (but private) bathroom, big bed, towels, soap, shampoo. The only thing we were really missing was the air conditioning at night. There was a fan but when it was working it wasn't that quiet. The staff were really nice, helpful and speaking English. Location is very good.... More

Location is good as in just out of Venice and near mestre however that is the only positive. Stayed in twin room. Cold water tap doesn't work in room and left leaking onto floor. Huge puddle of water in our room on arrival. Staff are by far the rudest I've ever come across in my travels. I witnessed them twice... More

Going up the stairs to the room, it was dark. The lights were turned off or their motion sensors weren't working. Very bad first impression. The moment we entered our room, my brother, 65 yr old mother and myself agreed we best go some place else. The room was in a very bad condition. The bath cubicle was tiny. Mosquitoes... More

Pathetic is Kind word I am using in fact. The Place is full of Mosquitoes and Insects. I paid around 57 EUR for one night and I seem to be over priced for this room. BY adding few more euros I got a much better deal in NH Laugna which is a 4* hotel. PLEASE DO NOT STAY HERE.... I... More

I don't like writing bad reviews and in fairness this hotel never claims to be anything but a budget option. But even taking that into account this place is the pits. Easily the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Dirty, smelly, run down, rude staff: you name it. Spend the extra cash and stay anywhere else.
