Reviewed May 29, 2013

We are young couple, we were in this hotel in the middle of March. We booked from booking.com. Really nice staff, pretty good breakfast. The rooms are small and the walls are thin, but this is everywhere in Venice, so don't judge the hotel by this. The hotel is easy to find (after you once found it ;) ), it's on the main street in the Cannaregio sestiere. Near is located BILLA, McDonalds and many small and comfy restaurants. The vaporetto station is called St.Marcuola, just 3-4 minutes walking to the hotel. But I seriously recommend first time you try to reach this or any other hotel in Venice, use GPS.
The room was cleaned daily and new towels were given daily. We are really satisfied with our stay there. Also, the week we were there, the weather was rainy, but there are excellent heaters in the rooms! We didn't use the wi-fi because it was too expensive. The price was good, and it fitted for what it offered. Can be paid with Master Card there.

We stayed here for 1 night with our little son. it was good. Walkable distance(10to15 mins) from central station. But we had to ask around 5 to 6 people to find the way. As it is in a small interior street. Room was clean. We had a very good breakfast of cereals,bread,milk,coffee to choose from. Happy with it. Would recommend it .

This place was great value for money in a very expensive city, the location is great - right in the main part (which is quite small.) Breakfast was better than most place offer and was done in a pretty outdoor courtyard. The room was basic but clean, a bit small maybe and the beds were relatively comfortable.

the only downside was the shower just had a curtain (not a ledge or door) so the whole bathroom flooded when you had a shower, but they did provide a mop to solve this problem.

Overral I thought it was good value.

Close to the ghetto
Hotel is simple but gives good value for money
The hotel's service was mediocre
Shower clean, hot water in the shower
The room is next to the street yet were noises (maybe because we were both so not Mtweirt)
Good bed
Overall hotel is simple but its definitely a good price

We shot through the hotel suites in a neighboring building (one owner). Imagine our surprise when, on arriving about 23 hours (of which we notified in advance), we found a room without a kitchen paid under a contract with the ice and shared shower for 2 rooms. After a 2 hour battle with the administrator promised us the next morning! provide the key to the next room, occupied by why - that the Spaniards now. Assured us that there is no hot water because the button is turned off the boiler in a room occupied by the Spaniards. We immediately verified with the Spaniards, that this lever is broken. As compensation for all this hype we were offered a free breakfast at the Hotel Ariel Silva, which consisted of coffee and stale croissants, waffles and cheap package. When leaving we did not discount a penny. This hotel is no longer a foot.

In Venice where everything costs a fortune we didn't want to be paying close to 100 euros a night for a room only but there was not much choice. Other than the check-in office being in a different location to the actual room and both being a little hard to find, we really didn't have many complaints. The room was near a supermarket and a great gelato shop and within walking distance of everything.

Room was spartan but large enough to spread the contents of our backpacks out and there was hot water in the shared bathroom. We were only sharing with one other room on the floor too which was good although a second toilet at least wouldn't have gone astray.

Reception staff weren't particularly friendly but we were looking for a budget place to sleep and little else so it's nothing to complain about. Only a small window in the room and it was quite dark as buildings are so close to each other in Venice but in some sections of the room and definitely downstairs we were about to access the nearby MacDonald's free WiFi which was handy. Cool time of year so no fridge wasn't an issue - we just left everything that needed to be cold on the window sill.

Some noise at night from a little bar downstairs but not too bad. We didn't venture in but there were a number of these little places tucked away for those not worried about how much the meal/drinks might end up costing and wanting to enjoy a bit of local atmosphere!

*One disclaimer - we stayed in April 2011, not 2012 so hopefully this information is not outdated.

I arrived at the Ariel Silva at about 1 AM with the help of a really nice Italian couple who were strolling along Canarregio street. I was lost, looking for another hotel. The room was clean, small but adequate. The bath was modern. There was air conditioning, thank goodness! The breakfast is excellent, and the daytime staff friendly and helpful.

The man on duty when we arrived was upset to have been awakened. But hey, it's a hotel, and you are there to do your job! We had to wait several minutes after a Japanese girl answered the door and said "Later!" I asked to use a telephone, and was told it wasn't possible ("It's not our emergency, lady!") The guy was rude to the point of being menacing and charged me another 10 euros for bugging him. Not the kind of service you want when you're exhausted, lost, and minus a cell phone! In the morning, when the owner came in, he was a lot more friendly, and walked me to the nearest ATM after his shift ended. All's well that ends well.

Room Tip: No elevator. Get a room on the first floor!
