“Uncomfortable”
Reviewed May 17, 2012

First, the bed in our room was the most uncomfortable that I have ever slept on. Secondly, we were put into room #3 and could hear some sort of machine all night long which made it impossible to get a good night’s sleep. This is not the hotel fault but Murano closes down early in the evening making it difficult to do anything outside of the hotel after 6pm. The people at the front desk were helpful and polite, that being said I would not recommend that anyone stay at this hotel.

We stayed at the Hotel Conterie for three days after arriving in Venice at the end of a cruise. Having visited Venice before, we decided to stay on one of the other islands and happily chose Murano.
The hotel is charming, having been the home of a glassworks family since 1500. it has been modernised and is comfortable, unpretentious and very good value. The staff are friendly and helpful. There is no lift, so travellers with mobility problems should ask for ground floor rooms on booking. The hotel has a ground floor and a first floor terrace garden and offers continental breakfast and a drinks service after 6.00pm.
Venice is just a few stops away by vaporetto / waterbus and the Alilaguna transfer boats between Venice and Marco Polo airport all stop at Murano so access is easy.
Another plus point is that Venice - with some notable exceptions - is not known for great food - the three restaurants we dined at on Murano were all excellent.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet - there are no motor vehicles on the Island. Visitors with limited mobility woul...

OK - where to begin.

We as a family have stayed in Venice several times. However - since we all like Murano and the other islands nearby we thought we would stay a couple of nights in a Murano hotel.

Not much choice here, so Hotel Conterie it was.

Now we wish it hadn't been.

Right from arrival it promised to be a disaster.

The room we were shown to was not the one we booked.

The lady (i think she was the owner) who showed us the room was the most awkward and miserable hotel host I have come across in a long time.

Next we needed a clean up having just arrived from a 2.5 hour flight and half hour boat trip.
The towels were few in number and worse than that, one was dirty and obviously a leftover from the previous occupants.

We needed a hot drink , and while i know that kettles are uncommon in Venetian rooms, we are used to getting one when asked for. I speak reasonable Italian and knew what to ask for. My request was met with a grunt and blank stare.

The bedding was damp in one of the beds and actually smelled damp. We ( self, wife and young daughter) ended up in the other bed together only to discover this one had bed-bugs which decided to attack my wife and daughter. Large bites still showing over a week later.

We did not even bother to mention this to the hotel management as going by the way they run their staff would have been a waste of time.

Breakfast (we'll call it that just for reference) was just awful. We know not to expect much in this region but waited 20 minutes for some luke warm water and a teabag between two and some broken rusk biscuits arrived before deciding to leave and go to the local osteria for some sustinance.

Mould, poor heating, grey water..... and ambiguous billing, all added up to a rather poor experience that I would not want anyone else to share.

When visiting Venice - appreciate that it IS expensive and can't really be enjoyed on a very tight budget. Put quality accommodation at the top of your list if you have gone to the effort and expense of getting here. Next, make sure you buy travel cards to get around, then make meals the next priority. There are great places to eat at reasonable prices.
Just dont stay here!!!!

Room Tip: Choose somewhere else!

Stayed for one night, immediately after his arrival at the airport. Very convenient location for a quick settlement (one stop from the airport by speedboat alilaguna) and subsequent visits to the islands of Burano, and Mozorbo Torchelo. Rooms small, but cozy. In late February, warm enough. Breakfast poor - coffee, croissants and muesli. Staff friendly, will be able to leave luggage after check-out until the evening, on a trip to the islands. Located away from the tourist trail, but it is easy to find (from the vaporetto stop 5 minutes walk from the boat stop alilaguna - 10-15 minutes). If you stay a while, then this hotel - very good choice.

This Hotel is located in a quiet area on Murano Island. The room is basic but fine overall. Location is the main problem with this hotel. Having to get boats to and from the main island get tiring and it makes you wish you spent the extra money to stay in a central location. Avoid the breakfast, unless you enjoy eating packet croissants and can fruit.

A basic place to sleep is what you get here. Don't expect anything from the staff, they are of no help. There isn't a lot near the hotel but I guess that is what to expect when staying on island of Murano rather than Venice proper. It didn't ruin our time in Venice by staying here certainly didn't enhance our visit.

An excellent base for exploring Venice and the lagoon; we were a bit nervous about being based out of the city, but it's ideal; just a 5 min walk to the vaporetto which takes 10 min over to the city. We had a room in a house along the quiet street from the reception, which was really well decorated and appointed and made us feel like we had our own Murano home. Breakfast is standard self-service continental, but fine. Reception were friendly and helpful. Murano is bustling in the daytime, but can be deserted at night. Eat before you leave the city!
