“Nice hotel - Terrific Staff”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

The hotel itself is or should be a heritage building. The building is around 700 years old (that's what we were told). Though hotel is centuries old but it has been very nicely done up inside, with all the modern amenities (including wi-fi). The nearest station for taking water-cab or Vaporetto is Rialto (10 minutes walk from the hotel) from the hotel. St. Lucia railway station is 10 minutes from Rialto. The hotel is situated in a very nice square - Santa Maria Square. We had an excellent stay there. The staff was very helpful. There are lot of eating places around the hotel, with few excellent ones in the square itself. We had an excellent stay with just a minor hitch. Since we were staying on 4th floor, climbing stairs first time with the luggage was bit of a task. One should ask for help in carrying the luggage which we did while checking out.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with the balcony opening towards the square. You'll get an excellent view of the...

What a gem of a hotel - traditional venetian decor throughout - small rooms and no lift - but it made it more like being in Venice! Location was great close to the main square but away from all the noise. Staff at hotel so helpful and friendly. Loved the cold buffet breakfast and having coffee in front of the hotel watching the people walk by. Recommend this place for a romantic night in Venice.

we enjoyed staying at this hotel. The staff were helpful, and loved the location, on Formosa Square, a happy, busy square where people were enjoying life. It was walkable from the Grand Canal, restaurants in the neighborhood, and lots of people watching.

Room Tip: no elevator, but we were on second floor, no problem for our over eighty mom

I stayed here with my husband for our honeymoon. We traveled throughout Europe, so a three night stay here wasn't horrible, but it wasn't great. The bed was two twin mattresses put together, as if it was one king size. And it was not comfortable! They say the wifi doesn't work bc too many people are using the web. I just can't believe that! There was a crowd sitting in the dinning area just to get wifi access! The breakfast was a huge disappointment. Bread, canned fruit, and powdered fruit flavored drinks. Disgusting :/ the tv channels are very limited. There was nothing offered in other languages besides Italian. My husband and I spend the entire day waking and exploring Venice, and at night we couldn't enjoy tv or internet access.

On the bright side, the staff was very nice and helpful. We had a wonderful time in Venice!

I can't say I would stay in this hotel again. Sorry :/

Nice and small hotel, room was very clean, staff very nice, I loved that it was next to a catholic church in that after I arrived there Sunday evening and watching people going in and out of the church I got up and went over to see a mass in progress and I was very happy to join them. Hotel Scandinavia is not far from San Marco and there was a lot of activities going on. The only complaint I have was the breakfast in all of Italy is that there menu does not have any sort of eggs on it.

Room Tip: Room overlooking the square, there is a lot of tourists and activities all day long, having a room i...

Good location in relation to st Marco and Rialto bridge. Staff friendly and very helpful with a map and advice of things to see and do while in Venice. Room small but has everything you need. No airconditioner in our room but was ok. Good idea to close windows as Venice can smell abit at night from water. Also resturant next door bit noisy early hours of the morning. Breakfast is included but is only ok, not great.

Stayed for one night on a stop over in Venice. The hotel is in a great location close to the Plazza San Marco & the Rialto bridge. Staff are very friendly, helpful and efficient. Our bedroon was very clean and spacious. Breakfast is continental style with a good choice of food.There is no lift and the hotel is in need of some moderinisation however overall this is a good hotel particularly in terms of location and I would recommend it to others.

Room Tip: Rooms to the front have a good view onto the square however can be noisy at night-time
