Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 27, 2014

This budget hotel exceeds its one-star rating. Our stay was so delightful, we didn't want to leave! What transcends the comforts of our room was the outstanding service from the very friendly and helpful staff of Albergo Marin. Right from our first check-in where we were greeted warmly by the hostess and presented with a welcome drink, we knew we were at the right place. Throughout our stay, we felt tremendously welcome.

The room, though small, was nothing short of anything we really needed. Comfortable beds, warm blankets, hot shower (so important in winter!), a TV. The decor was pretty nice too. Hotel breakfast was sumptuous and definitely one of our favourites. :D

Not to mention the easy accessibility of the place! Situated right opposite the train station and docks to the public boats, the hotel was easy to find and within walking distance to the main places like Rialto and San Marco.

All in all, we were more than satisfied with our stay and wished we could've stayed longer. It's such great value for money for the level of quality we experienced. The service trumps everything else and we'd definitely go back if the opportunity arises.

Love,
Nafisah & Amira

Bearing in mind that this is a budget hotel, it is really fine. While not luxurious (which we did not expect), there is a cute lobby with seating and reading material. Our host was wonderful - helped us plan our days in Venice, get transportation to the ferry we took on our way out, etc - and always with a smile. In fact, as soon as we arrived, she poured us complimentary drinks to cool and welcome us. Very nice touch. I was surprised at how plentiful, varied and yummy the breakfast was, too. The only two drawbacks were: our room was extremely small. We were told there was a larger room on the second floor, but with all our luggage and no elevator, it was more convenient for us to stay on the first floor. In the end it was ok. Also, through no fault of the hotel, of course, there was an evening concert going on right nearby for one or two nights. We are pretty heavy sleepers, so it didn't really bother us.

All in all, for the money we paid, we got a great value and were happy with the Albergo Marin.

Room Tip: I've heard that the room(s) on the second floor are larger, but bear in mind there is no elevato...

Lovely hotel just a block from the main canal with the train station just on the other side of the canal too. Excellent and attentive staff. Very nice room and especially nice to have a few outside tables to just sit and relax after a long day "getting lost in Venice".....
Very inviting and quiet makes this place a real gem - especially being so close to in/out transportation. Also of note is a complete grocery store just a 6 minute walk from the hotel - just ask at the desk (across the canal and to the left of the train station) - for a coke, snacks or fresh fruit without high tourist prices.
Also, Venice is expensive, but this hotel is more reasonable than most and easier to get to!

Had a rest a family of 2 adults and the daughter of 12 years. From November 4 to November 10, 2013. Reservation of number did through Booking.com. Arrival to hotel was late, on a reception us friendly met and carried out to number 208 2 floor. The elevator isn't present. Number small, but is all necessary. Pleasantly surprised that in a bathroom there were single gels, hats for a shower, soap, the hair dryer. double bed, single for the child, 2 cases for clothes, a table, a chair and a banketka, mirror, conditioner, the TV with control the Sky.
We had a difficulty with hotel search on arrival. Since there was an evening and there was a rain. It is more convenient to leave from a bus stop on the Grandee the channel (not to pass it), to pass through 2 bridges and between church and Carlton hotel there will be a narrow pass to meter width, having passed on it, you will find hotel Albergo Marin.
Breakfasts tasty - croissants, bread, oil, jam, honey, yogurt, muesli, milk, coffee, tea. Cleaning daily, change of linen of times in 4 days.
As it was mentioned in other responses, the hotel is very successfully located. On the contrary through the Grandee the channel – the railway station, and from bus station to go 5 minutes. In Venice movement or on foot, or on water. The water transport is expensive – the single ticket costs 7 euro. In hotel we were given the card, it not large, but we used it. On a reception to us kindly helped with the chosen routes.
In days of our stay in Venice our daughter had a birthday. It was unforgettable day! ! ! Also it began with a pleasant surprise! ! ! Special gratitude of Giacomo, Michela and hotel Marin staff for the shown attention!
This small travel to beautiful Venice forever remains in our hearts! ! ! ! Thanks to all! ! !

My wife and I loved this hotel. Coming from Milan, we can dare say that this is more than a 1-star hotel, it is definitely comparable to the 3-star hotel we stayed in Milan. We felt very welcomed when we first entered the lobby. The staff on duty was excellent by explaining to us how to navigate in Venice and which are the must go places. We also had our welcome drink, the first of our travels! Thank you so much for the hospitality. Would definitely come here again if we are to visit Venice again.
