Terrible experience-rude staff/bed bug/noise

I experienced the worst hotel stay as far as remember. First, the staffs was rude and dishonest.They charge 80 euros per night additional for a child. The staff at the front, named Enrico, convinced us that we would have larger room with a roller bed. I checked several times that we would have a roller bed for my child. He said yes. In the room, we found an old and weak couch bed as an additional bed. When I protested, he said he might not understand the roller bed term. Dishonest. BTW, The room was small for 3 people as well as it was not clean, does not even worth 2 stars. Worse thing was we got multiple bed bug bites at that night. We requested the room change but he asked us to provide the proof of bed bugs, he actually wanted the bug itself as a proof. He himself did a very quick check and accused us lying to him. Yes, he explicitly said we were lying to him. After unhappy moments wasting valuable vacation time for arguing, he changed our room by swapping the room with other poor travelers' room checking in that night. No treatment or effort was made for taking care of bed bugs. The neighborhood is full of bars and restaurants so it was very noisy even in the midnight. The windows do not fit so all the street noise and smell come into the room. No dining room on site so we had walk to other hotel for breakfast every morning. Wifi is almost uselessly slow. I chose this hotel by the star rating and the location, but please do not be fooled by them. It is not true. Must avoid unless you want to ruin your stay like mine.

NICE!!!!

Quite a surprize. A lovely elegant boutique hotel in the middle of al the hustle and bustle. I loved my suite that looked over the canal and bridge of sighs. A great in room breakfast. An opulent room/suite. Friendly staff. Very helpful. And it all right behind San Marcos yet quiet.

Honeymoon Getaway

The Ponte Dei Sospiri Hotel, was in a great location. There was tons of shopping, dining, and attractions within minutes. We stayed in the Junior Suite with a Canal View and views were great. The room was spacious with an amazing Murano Chandelier. Also, the staff was extremely helpful with excellent suggestions for things to do and see.

Perfect trip to Venice

Can't say anything bad about this hotel, the most friendly staff, cleanest rooms, exceptional service and to top it all off, we received a day trip to a glass making factory on Murrano for free which we had planned on doing anyway! The wifi can come and go at times, but the staff at reception were always more than happy to reset it for us. We thought due to the location of the hotel and busy streets around it, the noise would be a problem at night, however, each night was as peaceful as the last. If I ever go back to Venice, I will be staying here and will be recommending it to my friends and family! Very central to everything with lots of choice for lunch and dinner to eat out

Ask for third level room as you may be entitled to a trip and also the noise level is minimum from the street

Dirty and no water pressure in shower

The staff was nice enough but to be honest the room was dirty and the show had no water pressure at all. We also made the mistake of staying on the second floor which was not a good idea due to the amount of street noise. If you go here stay on the top floor.

City Break

This hotel is perfectly placed in the centre of whats going "on" in the city of Venice. You could not ask for a very reasonable priced hotel to be better positioned than a five minute walk from St Marks Sq. The staff were very helpful and quickly put right a couple of small issues with the room when we arrived. The only down side to our room was the condition of the bath, it really was showing its age to the point that we choose not to use it. That aside I would use the hotel again because of the friendly staff and its location.

Great location, so-so rooms

Next to the Bridge of Sighs canal and 10-20 steps from San Marco -- the location doesn't get any better. The included breakfast was excellent. However, the room was small and dark (and quite expensive!). The bathroom was OK except for the tiny coffin of a shower stall. The water temperature would automatically cycle from piping hot to frigid. I didn't get a good shower during my 3 days there and the staff didn't do anything to fix it despite several requests. Other than that the front-desk staff was quite friendly and helpful. Would I recommend this hotel -- Yes but not resoundingly.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

Go to San Marco's square after dark. There are great free concerts and people dancing. And it is not crowded!
