“Old hotel, but well located”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Not a typical hotel that you would expect in Italy - the building was old and not particularly maintained. Had to dag our bags to the first floor - not sure if they have an elevator..however, breakfast was decent and the tables are right next to the canal - so the views were good. Also, the place is right next to the train station so it was convenient to reach..good for a bunch of guys on a tight budget - the price was much lower thn the fancy venice hotels

Spacious room!
> Room and bathroom is spacious.
Expensive rate!
> All of the hotel in Venice are too expensive.

Rather disappointing, room was very small and dated. Breakfast was a buffet which was ok but guard your food. The pigeons would swoop down and clear your plate in seconds!
Overall a fantastic few days in Venice, but if the hotel was better our holiday would have been perfect

In a very handy location. The Porter & dining staff were the most friendly & helpful.
The young man on the main reception counter was most polite.
The older man & lady never smiled!!! Why are you in this job!!!!
The most unfriendly reception staff I have ever encountered.
I wish I could say something better - the Hotel is in great need of updating
Painting rooms more brighter & cheerful would help.
On the bright side handy to shops & right on the Grand Canal.
I loved Venice very much.
We will stay somewhere else next time sadly....

By USA standards this was 2 star at best. The bad: Smelly room, creepy wallpaper, dark.
The good: location, breakfast, breakfast area but watch out for those pigeons. The room did seemed clean. Staff was not friendly but very helpful.

Positives:
Short walk from train station
Right on the Grand Canal
Clean bathroom
Good breakfast (table on the grand Canal = special)
Free wifi

Negatives:
Noisy and ineffective airconditioning. Impossible to sleep with open windows due to hordes of mosquitos so usable aircon is sorely missed
Filthy and threadbare carpets
Tiny room (to be fair this is not unusual in Venice)
Dark, stained and depressing textured fabric walls of corridors and elevators. Really odd...

I am sure there are decent, clean, appealing hotels somewhere in Venice. This is not one of them...

Room Tip: Choose another hotel.

Stayed with my family for one night as the following morning we were cruising to the Greek Isles.The hotel's location was very central, bang in the middle of everything, close to the shops and restaurants.I was not impressed with the room, it was outdated and our bathroom was in dire need of a new bath. It was cracked everywhere really old and worn and to tell you the truth I was hesitant to wash in there!!The receptionist was not very nice either. We did however enjoy breakfast which we had outdoors contemplating the canal which was rather romantic and beautiful!
