I stayed in early August in peak season. Price ok for Venice and i had read reviews so was not expecting much. Low expectations were met. Reasonably quiet in room considering the location and bed not uncomfortable but you just dont really want to spend any time in the room except to shower and sleep. Bathroom is tiny and shower had drainage issues so had to keep turning off the water so the it wouldnt go all over the floor. Made hair washing difficult and time consuming.
Carried luggage up steep stairs to reception on arrival only to be told that i was in the other building so climbed back down. Maybe this info could have been emailed earlier. Walked by staff to another building a short walk away in another lane. No signage on door, and identical green doors side by side in laneway so getting back after dark was a challenge. Main door from street is closed but does not lock, no lighting until you hit a switch which goes off half way up more steep stairs. Thats if you knew to look for the switch in the first place. Didnt really feel safe until i had made it from the laneway into the room. From a security perspective of a solo female traveller i wouldnt want to be in the annexe building. The whole experience may have been slightly better if i was in the main building. Hard to say.
Had read the bad reviews of breakfast so didnt even bother. Plenty of cafes nearby.
Next time i will look for accommodation closer to the train station. You can walk or catch the waterbuses everywhere in Venice very easily. No need to be staying at San Marco. Im sure there must be better offerings than Hotel Lux. I recommend to look for them first.
