I have travelled all over the world including most of Europe and this has been the most disappointing of all my hotel experiences. I entered the quite cluttered and messy hotel reception area with hopes of a relaxing stay in Venice. My concerns began when I was informed by the lady at the desk that I had a private bathroom down the hall from my room, which seems more like a backpackers lodging. Needless to say it is not mentioned anywhere on any of the websites listing this hotel that you will not have a bathroom within your room. Actually this is not 100% true as at the end of my bed was a bidet and a sink. I am not quite sure what use a bidet is when the nearest toilet is 20 metres down the hall but it gives you the added adventure of trying not to run into it as you dress to make your way out of your room and down the hall if you need to use the facilities during the night. Just in case you were a little too relaxed the private bathroom is directly next to the bathroom used by everyone else in the floor and they are both just labelled 'WC' so you can enjoy the knocking and attempts to undo the door from the other lodgers as you try to take care of your business. Although the out dated shower it self appeared to be clean I was unfortunately rather distracted by the toilet brush sitting next to the toilet that was completely covered in faeces. As there are no hooks in your private bathroom it is a challenge to keep your towel clean. This would not usually be a problem but you can only have your towel replaced every third day unless you want to pay the additional seven euro per person to have it replaced earlier. The bed it self is as hard as a rock. You are provided with a very flat pillow approximately an inch thick at best. There are two extra pillows stored in the cupboard. I went to use one of these and was forces to choose between the one covered in hair or the one covered in yellow stains. In the end I thought it safer to just use a rolled up t-shirt. There are no in room safes so I am not sure why this is listed in the listings for this hotel. I could go on further but to say I have used camping ground facilities more comfortable than this place. Do not stay here!!!
