“A hotel with rich heritage in an excellent location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

This hotel building is full of character with a rich heritage. It is located less than 5 mins walk from the train station and ferry terminal. You can take the vaporetti to St Marco from the terminal, or take a 25 mins leisure walk there with lots of shops along the way. The hotel room is small but clean and comfortable. The bathroom is huge compared to the rest of the room. Breakfast is a buffet with a quite a good variety of food. The free WiFi was a little slow though. Do note that there is no lift in the hotel, but you can request for porter service to help with the luggage. A side note: the Chinese restaurant across the hotel serves authentic and good Chinese food.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. The reception staff are friendly, have great sense of humour and very helpful. The hotel is very clean, spacious with a lovely courtyard to rest after a busy day tramping the alleyways of Venice.
Corridors a little noisy, but then if that lady in her stilletoes stopped traipsing up and down constantly, it might not of been an issue. Otherwise a great stay, close to the train station and the 'Ferrovia' Vaporetto stop.

Room Tip: Maybe ask for a room not on the main corridor, or at the end. I also heard someone say that not all...

We stayed here last weekend (23rd - 26th November 2012). This was the second time for us. This is so convenient for exploring Venice. Just a few yards away from the bus and train station and bus stops for the water bus. The hotel is very quiet (especially given how busy it was outside and how full the place was). We had a great time. The staff are very friendly and helpful, especially a guy called Mattea who was a laugh a minute. He spoke several languages fluently as did other staff, but he stood out as giving genuine advise about places to go, booking tables at restaurants and genuinely going out of his way to be helpful. Rooms were very comfortable and clean. The bar area is the old refectory and is just beautiful. The beer is terrible but the wine is good and drinks not overpriced as some hotels can be.

On the down side, take your swim suit as you will need to cool off. The place is roasting (the dining room at breakfast, outrageously so). It was the same last time we were there and it can be stifling. The air con in the rooms is adjustable but it makes no difference. When we approached staff last time about it, we were told 'it's how the Americans like it'. Sorry guys, the American's don't rule the world even if they like to think they do. The rest of the world likes it a bit cooler. The hot water wasn't hot in the mornings so had tepid baths each day. The boiler obviously isn't up to the demand (though given the room temperatures, maybe that was no bad thing). My wife says that the dining room was designed by a man. It got very crowded and the layout wasn't logical. This meant that everyone was criss crossing each other to get what they needed.

The biggest gripe is the heat. Very definitely not Eco friendly in that respect, but hey, that was about it. Everything else was really good. Would definitely recommend it to anyone. We intend to come again.

This little hotel is only three star but it should be much more. The location is a dream, particularly if you arrive in venice by train, and just about every vaporetto comes past here, which makes travelling around venice even easier. The staff at reception make life very easy and are such cheeky lads too. Some rooms are larger than others however they are all very tastefully decorated and quiet. When we were there the exterior of the hotel was having a facelift, however there was never any problem with noise. Breakfast is served downstairs, and is more than adequate. The bar opens in the evening and you can sip on an evening spritz before stepping out for dinner. We loved this place. The downside(if any) is that being a former convent, there is a church right next door, and the bells ring every morning punctually at 7.15am and then again at 8.15am (just in case you didn't stir the first time). But really - who sleeps in when in venice. Great spot! Great price! We certainly will stay here on our next trip to venice.

Everyone must see Venice! Hotel Abbazia is very convenient to the train and bus stops, so when arriving or leaving for the airport, this is an added value. The hotel is tucked down a nice narrow alley/street yet very close to the main walkway. The room which we stayed in was much lager than I expected and met our needs since we spent so much time getting lost in Venice. The breakfast was a nice touch and the staff very pleasant. I would stay here on my next visit and recommend to anyone looking to visit Venice.

Stayed here with my son for two nights. I picked it based on the TA reviews and the location. Very easy walk from the train station with our luggage, and only minutes from the Grand Canal. Just a note that on Google maps it shows the hotel just off the Grand Canal. The actual entrance is about 300 yards down an alley and the sign cannot be seen from the main street. The room was not large, but more than adequate for two people. It was newly renovated and the location very quiet. The bathroom was also huge and had all new fixtures. Also agree the front desk staff was great, and we were able to store our bags after checkout with no problems.

I would strongly recommend this hotel.

My fiance and I stayed two nights at this hotel in mid November. It is conveniently located (a few minutes from the train station), easy to locate (it really is like the street over from the train station), very quiet so sleeping was easy, it had a friendly and helpful staff, and the history is very interesting (I believe I was told that it was an old church). This really is an excellent hotel - you don't have to try to navigate the streets with your luggage. You just put yourself into the hotel and you go and explore. The hotel will even tell you some good paths to take or commuting options if you don't want to walk. The only complaint is the bed was super hard. Please also note that because the building is historical, they are not able to put in an elevator. However, the front desk is helpful with bringing up luggage. I HIGHLY recommend staying at this hotel!
