I Liked this hotel as it was very close to the railway station and would take only 10 minutes to reach Grand Canal Venice. It was not expensive so the cost did not pinch me. But what I did not like about the place is, even in the month of May no AC or fan was provided in the room.... More

We only stayed here for a night. The hotel is not in Santa Lucia but its like right next to the Mestre Station. Traveling to St. Lucia is very easy cause you can do it by a train and by a bus (#2) the tickets are also very cheap! The hotel is decent, check in was at 2 but they... More

The hotel is located close to the bus station and that's probably the best part about it. It was small with lots of stairs so be prepared carry your luggage. Some rooms have shared bathrooms by my friend and I were luck enough to get our own room with a bathroom. There is only wifi in the lobby and it... More

This hotel is very basic and more like a hostel. Bedroom was clean but bathroom was a bit grubby. No breakfast facilities and a lot of rooms are shared bathroom. Staff were ok, location is convenient for the train/bus station with connections to the airport. If your stuck for a room for a night this place is ok but only... More

I wish I had seen the other reviews prior to booking, the negative posts are true, Althuo my sheets and towels were clean unlike other comments.This really a backpackers hotel in my way thinking. I paid €60 for a double room without breakfast. I agree with other comments with regard to the shabby look of the hotel. I move onto... More

We were not unfortunate enough to have stayed at this hotel, we only passed by the front, but it looks so dire that if we had booked it I probably wouldn't have even entered. Half of the windows were boarded up and the remnants of aged flags were still hanging in tatters over the entrance. There were some unsavoury looking... More

Having viewed the negative comments, I didn't expect too much but it was still worse than we thought. We stayed in double room with private bathroom. The room was very old and dirty, with stains on the wooden floor, furnitures and bathroom carpet. Paints exfoliating from walls. Some hairs were left on the bed...I wondered if the sheets had been...

Staying at a hostal is never the most luxurious experience, and finding an affordable place to stay in venice is even harder, but based upon my experience at "hotel" Giovannina, I would opt for paying more money to stay in venice center instead of the economical hostel. Firstly, this hostel is not located in venice, but "Mestre." Basically, the ghetto... More
