“excellent location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2006

I stayed here for 2 nights and found the location to be fantastic. Only a few minutes walk from the train station, and on a main street filled with shops, restaurants, etc. Great budget restaurant very close by was BREK .
On the downside, the 2 of the 3 reception staff were unfriendly and unhelpful. To reach my room, I had to take the lift, and then walk up a very narrow steep staircase of 10 steps, to some sort of tiny landing - very difficult with a heavy suitcase, which I had to push up the stairs one step at a time. As there was a timber railing above the stairs, it wasn't possible to stand upright and pull the case up the stairs. No help was forthcoming form any of the staff, and I really struggled with this. SOmeone old or a bit infirm would not manage this set of stairs every time they had to come or go. The room had long timber beams all the way across the ceiling, which were so low that I bumped my head on them several times. A tall person sitting up in bed would have bumped their head on the beams, which extended across the bed . Bathroom ceiling was also very low. Room would have been very claustrophobic for a tall person.
Breakfast room was very pleasant compared to some of the hotels I stayed in in Italy.
For 60 euros a night, I thought this was very good value, but when booking, specify you want a room which is not one of the 2 located on the stairs at the top of the landing on the 2nd floor!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2006

Stayed for 2 nights at this hotel for 100euro a night. Very easy to find, just a 2 min walk from Santa Lucia station. Lovely street with shops and restaurants right at your door. The room was lovely, decorated in typical venitian style with a very modern bathroom. Our room had a large balcony which was great. Very clean and had no problems. Reception staff were not particulary friendly or helpful but that would be the only negative thing I could say about this hotel. About a half hour stroll to San Marco which is a lovely walk. After researching an affordable hotel in Venice for ages I was very happy with this choice at an affordable price.


  • Liked — Room was lovely
  • Disliked — Fair walk from San Marco
  • Tips/Secrets — Request room with balcony as seems these are bigger

This hotel had a very nice lobby and friendly staff. The price was reasonable, and it was clean and safe. The only complaint I have is that the room did not have a very cosy feel. I don't mind small rooms, but I didn't really look forward to going back to the hotel at night. My room was decorated with a weird crimson theme. The bathroom fan was really loud. I can't really expain the missing ingredient. I would probably look for another hotel next time, though I have nothing terribly bad to say about this one.
