“What a great little place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

We had a short break in Venice and chose this little hotel on location, price and previous reviews.
The room was perfect, the private facilities were just right and breakfast was more than adequate for the day (juice, cereals, croissants, toast, coffee etc), a nice touch was afternoon tea.
The hotel was not easy to find, although, judging by the number of people wandering around Venice with luggage and looking forlornly at pieces of paper and trying to find their hotel, this must be very typical.
The hotel (once you have found it!) is just a few minutes walk from either the railway station or the bus station at Piazalle Roma and a very leisurely 20 minutes walk from St Marks Square.
I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: The website says WiFi in the lobby, we were on the first floor above reception and got a very strong...

Albergo Marin was a great place to stay. We only stayed for one night but it was well worth it, just a couple of minutes from the main train station, still across the Venice Channel and one of two main bridges, behind a church, making the location just perfect.

The rooms are clean, breakfast was included even though the reservation email said it would not be. Book through their website rather than through hostel booking sites to get a better price.

The only inconvenience was no wifi in the rooms but only in the lobby.

Dear friend,

thanks a lot for your nice review, I appreciate it and I wish to underline the importance of booking directly once more (i.e. 7% discount using tripadvisor coupon). Just one thing: if you put a look at your reservation paper you see breakfast is alqays included, just in case you select our external apartments you don't have it included (as they are 10 minutes far on foot).

Best wishes, hope to welcome you again in the future and to supply free wifi in our rooms as well

I booked this hotel as It had such great feedback on trip advisor. We got a great deal and stayed for three nights including breakfast. the hotel is in a wonderful location and the staff are very friendly. the rooms are clean and tidy and provided all the things needed for a great stay in venice. I am highly recomending this hotel and will stay here again !
once very small issue was that we had two single beds pushed together which meant we fell through the gap a little bit. however we did not complain as we didnt actually mind. but Im sure if we mentioned this at the time they would have amended this.

We couldn't even dream about such a convenient and beautiful hotel for reasonable price in Venice. As we came from Rome by train at 5am, it was only 3 minutes walk along a picturesque canal and we were in Albergo Marine. The connection by ferry, by train, by bus and by vaporetto is the best among hundreds of hotels in Venice. There is a full range of shops, great trattorias nearby, pizzerias and pasticcerias. Also you can get to S.Marco and Rialto just stralling between streets and bridges or take a vaporetto which stop is 1 minute from the hotel.
Must say that this welcoming hotel has a free evening tea time.
The room was spacious and had everything we needed.
If you have a flight to/from Treviso the bus stop of Treviso shuttle buses are on piazzale Roma - just walk along the canal in direction of "hi-tech" bridge as we called it. Really, it's 5 min walk. 7 Eur - and you already in Treviso (about 40 minutes).
Have a nice trip !

I visited Albergo Marin with my girl-friend and we both were satisfied. We bought small double-room, but I can say, we got good service for little money. Hotel was clean, staff were helpful and kind. Great location - it is just a short distance from bus station. Breakfast was modest, but corresponding with price. I can recommend ;)

Nearly 20 years ago my husband found this hotel in a Rick Steves book. As a student on a rail pass for him it was a bonus that it was so close to the train station. And if you are longer away from home you'll enjoy having a laundromat next door.
About 5 years later he booked the same place when he traveled there with his parents. They asked for a bottle of wine, the owner made it possible (although they are not a restaurant) and they enjoyed their arrival to a great city.
Now with our 4-year-old we again stayed here, arrived on my husband's birthday and got a bottle of Prosecco and two glasses to our room. Because of the child we were also able to immediately check in after our night train early arrival, which was great. It's the little things which make you come back.
We also learned that better than taking boats from Ferrovia is the boat stop P. Le Rome as you enter the boat before the big crowds.

Dear Kristen,

thanks a lot for your nice review. Next time remember to come back using the discount coupon I gave you by e-mail, to get an extra 10% discount which is available only booking through our official website. Also, you could try our SUPERIOR double room with turkish bath, a little private wellness centre in Venice. Didi you check picture of that on facebook or on our official web page?

Take care of you all

Best wishes
