“ROOM WITH NO VIEW”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Currently staying at Universo.....
great location, don't have to drag the bags across Italy to find the hotel.
Just round the corner from my train station on the edge of the canal/s.

Staff trying hard but this is faulty towers....minimal English, big smile,
in-house phone doesn't work, ok but I'm at the top of 5 flights of stairs, no lift.

Reasonably clean, wifi only works in reception and no plugs for recharging,
easier to go to the cafe next door. Oh well what do you want for $50 a nite!
Room small and clean.

I love this budget hotel, so it dated, so what , we had a spacious quiet room. The bed was not all that bad. But what really like was the front desk, They were in control of what goes on. I liked that and they were very very friendly with bottom line info. I would def stay again, ps - breakfast was great aaaannnndddd it is to close to the train station you can throw a rock and hit it :)
i love venice...

First, the room is dirty. Second, the bathroom is tiny and filthy. At last, i asked for an extra pillow, they didn't answered my request... The guy from the front desk, called 'Abramo' was extremely rude to me, and told me to pick up the extra pillow in another room!!! I asked him if the hotel Universo Nord trully is a 3 star hotel. He got mad and started to yell at me. I asked for the manager, he said "I don't care, the manager's name is Leo, talk to him in the morning". Do not come to this crap hotel. It's cheap, but the service is even cheaper!!!!!!!!

Only stayed one night at this hotel, but for the price I payed 30 euro, it was very good. Location good for the station and Piazalle Roma, and vaporetto stop very near. My room was on the top floor, with no lift, which was a little hard going but reception do supply a porter to help with luggage. The room was clean and had plenty of amenities, breakfast was good, nice big breakfast room with an outside terrace. Staff were friendly and helpful. no complaints, highly recommended if on a budget.

We booked two rooms, one for us and one for the children. When we arrived, the second room was small enough to be a broom closet - certainly too small for two children. When I complained I was told there were no more rooms. That was just the start.
At about 8:00pm, I heard a jackhammer - yes a jackhammer at night. I went to the front desk, and I was told it was just for a short time and would stop.
Around 11:00pm, we heard a scream, (over the still pounding jack hammer), and heard a commotion in the hall. I went out and a young woman was telling another couple, that a man was trying to get in her room through the bathroom window - like out of a TV movie.
The jackhammer stopped just after midnight. We checked out the next day, and payed triple the rate for two beautiful rooms right on the canal.
Avoid this hotel at any cost. You will see beautiful photos, and the location is great, but the owners are rude, they are deceitful, and they really don't care if they ever see you again. In this case, you don't even get what you pay for. Spend some money and cross the street.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else, and you will absolutely positively get a better room.

Worst hotel I have ever stayed at. Expensive even for Venice, dirty, rude and dodgy staff. Location good for train station, but not in the heart of Venice, at least half an hour on water bus to San Marco
