We spent three nights at Alloggi Serena and enjoyed our stay. If you are expecting glamour and sparkle you won't get it here (and will pay a good bit more for it somewhere else), but here you will get a simple, authentic experience - a friendly welcome from Sergio and Serena, a nice room, a comfortable bed and a simple fresh breakfast prepared by Serena in their own kitchen, all for a good price, which is all you need if you're going to be out and about all day. It is in a quiet area of Venice but well-placed, a walkable distance from the main train station and five minutes from the vaporetto. There are also some lovely restaurants on the canals nearby (eg La Zucca, Trattoria al Ponte di Megio), great for when you want to drop off your shopping and eat late after a long day of sightseeing.

My husband & I stayed here for 3 nights for just under $100/night. We almost skipped Venice altogether due to the high cost of hotels so were glad to find this one. Its perfectly adequate, we had the room with a private bath outside the room and it was fine, knowing that in advance. Breakfast was "just ok" with coffee, bread, jam, yogurt, meat, and cheese. All items were "just ok". I've stayed in other hotels in Italy with the same items on the breakfast menu and they were better quality all around.

The trickiest thing about the hotel is finding it. But I think all of Venice is like this. If possible have someone from the hotel come and meet you at the train station. You do not need to take a vaporetto to the hotel as its only one stop away, unless you have a lot to carry. Its only a 10 minute walk, but its a maze - as is all of Venice. I can't tell you how many times we saw people pull out maps, walk a certain way, and then return. Maps are only so-so in helping as many of the street names aren't on a map or even on the streets!

I would probably stay there again as it was a good price and in a good area.

Room Tip: There's no lift. Room on the main floor has a private bath outside the room. Street is quiet, church bells ring at 7 am.

My husband and I stayed here for a night and were happy with our stay. The room was small but clean. The bathroom was detached but we knew that when booking, it was not shared though which is good. The complimentary breakfast was nice, bread, croissants, yogurt, coffee/tea. Good location. Also, be aware they do not take cards and dont have change so bring exact euro to pay. Very friendly.

We had a nice stay at this hostel. We booked a double room with shared bathroom through hostelworld.com. When we came to the hostel we got a nice and cosy double room at the bottom floor and to our surprise we also got a private bathroom. The private bathroom lied in front of our double room so we had to cross the hall to go there but that wasn't any problem. The italian lady who served us was really kind and helpful. She helped us with all the questions we had and she also made the breakfast in the morning (and the coffee was really good). The breakfast itself was simple but good enough. Beside that the hostel also had a great location. It was near to everything in Venice but it was located in a more quite part with less tourists so it wasn't noisy. A really good hostel for the low price you pay.

The only thing that we had a problem with was finding the hostel the first time but it's because Venice is like a labyrinth without a logical system of street numbers. If you have google map or a detailed map it can help you a lot.

We have never used a B&B on a city break before but the pictures of the Serena had a certain appeal. Having only visited Venice before on day trips we decided the only way to see it properly was to go and stay for a few nights, and it is the best way to "do" Venice! The Serena is in the quiet, less touristy sestiere (district) of Santa Croce which has a laid-back, local atmosphere and is considerably cheaper to eat and drink after a hard days sightseeing. It is only about 10 mins walk from the bus station at Piazzale Roma and the train station across the canal (there's a bridge so no need for the vaporetto). There is a vaporetto stop close by and the Rialto area is also 10-15 mins walk. You can stroll to San Marco in 20 minutes with plenty of distractions along the way, so location-wise I'd say its spot-on. Our room, to be honest, was not what we were expecting, being small and dark and on the ground floor but it had a comfy bed, a tv, minibar (which you can also put your own food and drink in) and our private bathroom across the hall was spacious and spotless. We found we were making the bed ourselves during our 3 night stay but had this been a big issue I would have mentioned it to the owners. Caeser, the owner, and his wife were very sweet and helpful and speak reasonable english. Breakfast was typical continental fare, bread, jams, fruit, somedays salami or yoghurt and good, strong coffee. I'd say it's all you need really for a few nights in Venice as you will be out and about most of the time. Its a good base for exploring the parts of the city you'd never normally see. Its not difficult to find once you get your bearings (familiarise yourself with the districts and landmarks before you go!!) and even late at night we felt safe in the little backstreets. The Serena is converted from an old Venetian house so its pretty quaint, it doesn't have many rooms but I'd say, if you can, try booking a superior room. Value-wise it was fine for what we wanted and yes, we would probably use it again if we re-visit Venice!

Room Tip: Book a superior room if you can, we didn't!!!
