“Great hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This hotel is charming, beautiful and old. Our family room was large and roomy with a renovated bathroom. Breakfast was good and location near the railway station was excellent.
Great place to stay in Venice if one has large heavy suitcases.

Room Tip: It is only a 100 metres from the railway station and people have gotten lost getting to the hotel as...

The Hotel Abbazzia is located right near both the train station and bus station in Venice's Canneregio District. Right at the end of the walkway to the hotel is the Grand Canal and the Ferrovia vaparetto (water bus) stops. Just steps outside of the hotel were many restaurants, shops, and little bars. We were traveling with young children and managed to walk to the Rialto Bridge and Market in about 20 minutes and Saint Mark's Piazza in about 30. We even had a small playground located right on the other side of the Grand Canal adjacent to the large bridge leading from the bus station.

Even more remarkable than the location was the service provided by the hotel staff. Upon arrival we walked in with a toddler in the throws of a full blown tantrum and the front desk staff was very cordial and attempted to engage her. We were given a room upgrade (most likely due to the low season), which provided our children with more space to entertain themselves during our downtime while at the hotel. Breakfast was included in our stay and the offerings were more than the typical coffee/tea and pastry options of Europe, which was very much appreciated.

The hotel was clean and all of the areas we occupied were in good condition. The exterior was under construction but there wasn't any noise.

We stayed in a roomy, well decorated triple with two cabinets/closets and a large bathroom with shower. The lounge is very plush and we enjoyed having a drink in there in the evenings. Courtyard looked lovely though it was too cold to use it while we visited. Breakfast was plentiful and also in a pretty room. This was by far the nicest hotel of our stay. Also very convenient to train station and vaperetto stops, and one bridge away from airport bus stop. Booked as part of expedia package well in advance and got a good rate (for Venice!).

My friend and I stayed at the Abbazia in November after our two week escorted tour through Italy ended. We loved it! The location is terrific - just around the corner from Santa Lucia Station and Ferrovia vaporeto dock. Our rooms were large, clean and contained a mini fridge and a safe. Additionally, the hotel gave us rooms side by side on the second floor just off a small landing and seating area. It was super private and really quiet. The lounge area on the first floor was spacious and cozy. The breakfast was terrific and they had great coffee machines for making any kind of expresso or cafe Americano that you desired. There is also a lovely outdoor courtyard. The staff at this hotel were wonderful, especially Matteo, who saved the day with a pair of pliers when my corkscrew malfunctioned and broke off in an expensive bottle of wine. Staff also arranged a private water taxi for us to Murano. I will just mention that I did not see an elevator. You should ask if this is important to you and perhaps request a room on the first floor. Both our rooms had lovely big bathtubs with hand held shower wands. After two weeks of tiny shower stalls throughout the rest of Italy, a large, clean tub was very welcome. I highly recommend this wonderful hotel and hope to return!

My Wife and I are just back from a 5 night stay at the Abbazia.

This is our second stay there and, though it isn't the cheapest available, it lived up to what we expected. Don't go for cheap in Venice. You could be appalled at what you get.

Many Venice hotels give you a pokey room and poor breakfast but the rooms at the Abbazia are generous, well decorated and the facilities are good. The staff too are very helpful and friendly which is more that can be said for some Italian hotels.

On the downside, there is no lift so, if you have any mobility issues, ask for a ground floor room. Other than that, I would wholeheartedly recommend this hotel.


Thank you Fabio, Matthew and Momin for making this another memorable stay in the most beautiful city on Earth.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the abbey bells at 7.15am.

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay here. We arrived to Venice by train from Munich and we appreciated the close proximity to the train station. It's tucked away on a side street so it isn't noisy and the courtyard is very pretty. The staff was welcoming and helpful. The reason I didn't give it a 5 is due to the sheets seeming unclean one of the nights, which creeped my wife out a bit.

We had 3 rooms at the Abbazia. They were well appointed and clean. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The venue is excellent for access to the city and sights. I'd certainly recommend it and would be happy to return.
