Room was great, ideal location. On checkout day, we had to leave very early (6am), but they allowed us to have our breakfast, which was really nice of them.

Good deal

If you do the Rome, Florence, Venice vacation, by the time you get to Venice, you are tired of being surrounded by tourists. This hotel is on a quiet street away from the main tourist spots. It was easy to find and close to the train station and bus terminal. Not fancy, but clean and the staff was friendly

Worth the price

Old building (well.. it's Venice!) but in decent condition and it has air conditioner which is a nice surprise. Good location--quiet neighborhood, yet still close to train station (about 5 minutes walk) and easy to find. You don't want to get lost trying to find the hotel while still carrying your luggage (you will have plenty of opportunities to get lost.. believe me!). You can even walk to St Mark square (about 30 minutes walk) or take waterbus in front of train station through Grand Canal which is pretty convenient. Our rate didn't include breakfast so we can't comment on it. There are a number of restaurants and cafe around so not having breakfast included is no big deal. Overall, it's a nice stay in Venice.

More than adequate housing in Venice

The location was great for a trip to Venice: close enough to the train station for an easy walk with luggage, but far enough from the main tourist areas that it was nice and quiet. The hotel was affordable, gave adequate housing, had nice staff. I'd say that this is the perfect no-frills value place to stay in Venice - Spend your money on food, wine, and transportation instead of opulent housing.

Would stay here again

After reading some very bad reviews about this hotel,our holiday was almost spoiled before we had even left. We set off for Venice expecing the worst(offensive staff,mouldy beds,bed bugs,dirty communal showers,etc). We were very surprised to see that on our arrival things were not bad at all. Was this the wrong hotel? We had booked a room for 5 nights in the annex. The room was perfect..we even had an ensuite which wasn't expected. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the breakfast was very tasty. Cakes,croissants,cereals,hams,cheese and all the bread you can eat. This hotels is good value for money and we would gladly stay again..although we would not book through e bookers as they,on the otherhand,are extremely unhelpful and useless. So much so I feel I should make a complaint,but know it would fall on deaf ears. Maybe they would even hang up on me like they did before..Poor show.
