This hotel is very nicely located close to the main cultural attractions and close to the shops and the typical restaurants. The hotel is made up of 2 buildings only a few metres apart from each other. CQ 05/08 Typical Venetian building in keeping with the surroundings. Located in the heart of Venice a few metres away from the boat stop San Zaccaria, and few metres away from San Marco Square.

Great value just a short walk from San Marco's

The hotel had a sense of faded elegance that has shifted to the more casual style of travel today. Room was large (good thing as there were 4 of us), with 1 single, 1 single sofa bed, and a queen. We overlooked a busy walkway (as they all are in the area), but the shutters/windows kept things quiet. Breakfast was as described (coffee, croissant), but there were other items available self serve such as juices, rolls, jams, cereal, and yogurt. Staff was friendly and accommodating for storing luggage post check out.

Check-in is on the second floor with narrow stairs. If you have heavy luggage that you cannot easily carry up the stairs, this may not be the place for you.

Close to vaporetto

The Lux Hotel was a comfortable, basic hotel which was very close to the San Zacharia vaporetto stop and San Marco Square. There is no elevator so be prepared to puff your way up the narrow stairs before you can cool off in your air conditioned room. Air conditioning worked well but be sure to shut the windows after the maid visits or it will not turn on. The bathroom was a good size and clean. The bed was comfortable but the extra cot for my son was not. He could feel the bar dig into his back all night. The hotel offers a basic breakfast (croissants, coffee, yogurt, etc. but no fruit, meats, or cheeses). The hotel offered a free one way trip to Murano by water taxi. I would stay again if in Venice but the cost was double what I paid for a similar room in Florence.

Good Location

Up a quiet side walk-way with shops with no traffic. Walk one block to main square.Rooms and bathroom clean.Did not allow us to check in early and you have to carry your own luggage up a minimum of 2 floors[no bellboy or elevators].

It seemed like an attic converted to a room, very dark and horrible. No elevators, had to carry luggage to 5th floor. Staff not very friendly or helpful Breakfast was ok Location was great

youth hostel for desperate hobbits. Go elsewhere

I just had to write this to warn the others: "Lux" folks gave me a room in the "2nd separate entrance" part of the hotel. No receptionist, staircase to crawl through, entrance door to a REALLY stinky side street open all the time (anybody can enter and no receptionist so it stinks in the staircase), smallest room I've ever seen, even smaller bathroom, all appliances in the bathroom worn down to a point of ridiculous, really noisy outside until 3am. Oh, and did I mention mosquitos in the room? Plentiful black spots all over the walls and ceiling suggest I wasn't the first lucky guest to spend a night chasing the bloodsuckers. But I wouldn't sleep anyway (remember - it was really noisy outside). Their pixs largely misrepresent the interior. There is nothing nice or high-end about the interior.

It's Venice. Restaurants are everywhere, but many or them operate just to rip tourists off. Find a place where the locals dine.
