“good choice and value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

We stayed here for two nights prior to starting a cruise from Venice. The hotel is very clean and comfortable. We had a room overlooking the canal where we were treated to the sound of Venice...buskers singing opera and boat drivers conversing. The room was a good size, nicely furnished in a classical style with good air conditioning. While we were there the Wifi was fixed so could be accessed from the room. The staff was very helpful and hospitable. Very good location.

Room Tip: We liked having a room overlooking the canal.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Me and my partner stayed at hotel Al vagon for three nights in July 2013.

Advantages:
-Nice and clean room
-Fantastic location (right on the canals and close distance to a water bus station and a little further to the train station
-Really good hotel restaurant attached to the hotel (however it was pretty expensive)
-Good air conditioner in the room
-Helpful receptionist who were able to help us with planning our day trips

Disadvantages:
-Quite noisy (because the hotel is located right in the center of a popular square)
- The hotel restaurant was expensive with extremely small portions
-You can only access the internet if you sat in the reception, however the reception area was very small so people generally had to sit on the stairs to get internet


Overall, we found the hotel very good and for a good price. We recommend requesting a room away from the street and maybe a day trip over to the island of Lido :)

The best part is the location, it is really in the heart of Venice and the Waterboat stops for both the station or the airport are barely a ten minute walk. Lots of nice restaurants close by and atleast the room we had was reasonably quiet. Only negatives are the size of the rooms which are tiny and the fact that there is no wifi available in the room. Both the reception staff Varinder and Adriano were very polite and helpful.

I stayed at this hotel a week ago. I was really impressed with this hotel. It was well-priced, the decor was charming (OK, a little bit tacky ... but sweet) and we had a canal view! Such good value. If you are staying on the canal side can be a little bit noisy (motor boats), but nothing a set of earplugs cant fix.

I also want to mention that I (stupidly) left a bag with my laptop in it in the reception area upon checkout. Upon realizing my mistake, I called the hotel from the train. The staff not only kept my bag secure but organized to send it to Rome in the space of four days (only 25 euro). I was very appreciative of their help and professionalism - thanks guys!

Room Tip: Rooms on the canal can be a bit noisy, but I think its worth it.

This hotel is stuck back in time. Room smelled bad because the air conditioning unit was so old. It was also very loud. Shower had someone's hair in it when we got there which was concerning. Also, it sometimes would not get hot at all so had some cold showers. Bed was hard and uncomfortable. No safe in the room. No lift but it is only one flight up to rooms. Staff were pretty vague and unfriendly. Definitely a one star at most, but since venice is expensive we knew we weren't getting anything great. Still felt it was very overpriced and would not recommend this place.

Follow the directions on the hotel's website for finding the hotel. It's simple from vaporetto stop Ca' d'Oro. The hotel is definitely one star - no amenities. The only one I really missed was wifi. The AC worked great. There are tons of eating places nearby (many tripadvisor recommendations - get the app that you can download and use offline).

I requested a spacious room with a view. The room was big as was the bathroom. Everything was extremely clean. The room was located, not in the main hotel, but in another building across the little courtyard. It had a view of the courtyard. I was worried about night noise because the area is so busy, but with the heavy shutters, there was almost no noise at night. The room was #15.

You'll be carrying your bags upstairs as there is no elevator. For the value and location, Hotel Al Vagon was a great place to stay for travelers on a budget.

Stayed for four nights in a superior room with view to the canal. Charming room, nice and clean, nice bathroom with shower (Shampoo, hand soap and disposable plastic cups). Nice service. No breakfast. Paid 135 Euros per night (+ 1 Euro pp/nt in local tax). The hotel is located in very busy part of Venice, so its maybe not the most quiet room in the world.
