“Waste of money and rude”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Our first room had a powercut for a day the electricity waSnt working so at 6pm we asked the guy at reception to come a check it he said he would e there in 5mins - we waited 20 an were going to be late for a show so we showered in the dark and left. We can back at 00:30am and still no electricity - the clerk had done nothing so we went back downstairs to a new man who was more helpful and came up straight away but couldn't fix it so at 1am we had to swap rooms which is obviously a huge inconvenience. In the new room the Sheets were dirty had brown smears on them we now had two single beds instead of a double and it was significantly smaller than the first. Dirty shower and wet floors/ toilet seat. In the morning a new clerk was there so we complained to him and he said well I can't do anything there's nothing I will do. Nothing for our inconvenience wasted time, just head shaking and an uncomfortable nights sleep.

this was a lovely central place to stay enough though the hotel is abit dated please don't be put off I would certainly stay here again no problem, staff always friendly and very helpful with any information that we required could not do enough for us. very easy to find also handy for the bus into venice it self which was just across the road and ran very regular into venice which made our stay wonderful, also handy for the train station was wasent that far away which meant we could go exploring further afield to vernona and treste which where both beautiful and worth the visit if you get the chance go the train trip is quick and easy. I would love to go again and would go in a heart beat . just what to say a huge thankyou to the staff there at the hotel

We were very pleasantly surprised by the Hotel Centrale. In an expensive city like Venice, this hotel offers good value for money without many compromises. The staff were helpful, our room was well equipped and the ensuite facilities were relatively basic but clean. The public transport linking the hotel to the island is great; the buses are frequent and tickets are cheap. There are plenty of good restaurants just around the corner from the hotel.

We stayed here for two night on the second floor. Our room was for 4 people so we got a room at the end of the hall in the corner. We had a balcony but looking out was not the best. Bathroom is ok shower very small without stall so the water is splashing everywhere. Beds are hard but ok. Area is not very safe looking but we did not go out at night. Elevator is very tiny hard to fit in it. Lots of traffic at night so a bit noisy. Parking is not available hotel will offer two options, best to take euro parking for 14 eu per night. A bit of a walk but there is nothing cheaper. To go to Venice you have to get on a jam packed bus in he morning but buy tickets ahead of time at the tobacco shop next to the hotel 1.20 eu each way. Ride is about 10 min. Breakfast disappointing just sweet buns watered down orange juice and jam.

The hotel is very nice, located closely to the bus stop that takes you directly into Venice. The rooms were clean but our room wasn't very spacious. It looked like a 2 bed room, but with four beds squished in. There was no lock on the bathroom door, although that wasn't too much of a problem. Overall it was good, and cheaper than other places we stayed in during our InterRail trip in Italy.

We only stayed here for one night and thank the lord. The staff were friendly at first however, we had disturbances throughout the night with people in the room beside us knocking on our door. When checking out we informed the staff and they didn't seem at all bothered. The rooms were reasonable clean however the shower was extremely small and the location of this hotel is in a dodgy area. It isn't close to the centre so not great if you want to see Venice.

The hotel is quiet and clean, but the problem was the food at the breakfast. After we've paid for breakfast, it appears that it was just for "sweet breakfast", which means almost nothing....so, we had to pay additional 5 Euros for each person for a normal breakfast. Also, there are some rumors that this hotel is not places in "so good area" as we saw some strange guys (immigrants) who sometimes were freaking me. It is not recommended to go out for girls alone in the evening time.

Room Tip: Rooms on the street site are not so quiet, especially in the morning time because of the traffic.
