3.0 out of 5.0

The only positive thing about this hotel is the location. Located close to San Zaccharia stop and just a 2 minute walk to St. Mark's square. We were shifted to another building which was in the lane next to the original hotel building. The rooms were ok, not bad. But there was some problem with the air condition, it was not working. The breakfast spread was not at all satisfactory. A lot of eateries around the hotel.

I was quite worried to stay at the hotel after the negative reviews I read, however it was a pleasant surprise when I arrived. Yes I had to climb 5 flights of stairs but my luggage was carried up to the room by the staff. The room was clean and the bed quite comfortable and quite. I was perfectly located for sightseeing. The view from the balcony of the room was also something special.

We stayed here about 10years ago and loved it, the location is perfect for sights of venice. We only paid £45 per nigt for a double room with breakfast in november (thurs-sunday) so total £141 for 2 adults! Bargain! Breakfast was very plain, a coisant and cuppa! Cereal or bread & butter but what can you expect for this price. The rooms were lovely in their day but are now a bit shabby. I usually like luxury hotels but for £45 a night you cant complain, the bedding was crisp and spotless re was everything we needed. Not sure if i will stay here again until it has a refurb. The staff are polite and we enjoyed our stay......for the price. If you can get a bargain its a good place to stay but if i had paid much more i would have been complaining! Overall ok

I was checked in this hotel in 31 Aug 2017. & I never seen this type of bad & horrible hotel in Europe. The rooms air conditioner was controlled by the owners of hotel from reception. This hotel is managed by a family member only & the gentleman is very rude and ready for the fighting. The rooms are smelling very bad. Flush in a wash room is not working properly. Limited items in breakfast & no option for lunch/dinner. Basically it was a old house and converted in the hotel.

We had a two night stay booked through at Hotel Lux for our birthday. I was worried in the lead up to our trip after reading some reviews, however, We found the hotel perfectly acceptable due to the location. The room was fine and clean enough, decent bed and bathroom for the price. Could do with a bit of a spruce up in the near future,we loved it none the less. Breakfast was ok croissant with jams, cereals, yoghurt, coffee and juice on offer. The hotel was easier to find than we thought before arriving. The little street that it is situated off provided us with souvenirs and reasonably priced food and drink considering it's a stone throw from all the tourist action. Loved being able to wander the square so easily from here early in the morning and again late at night before the day trippers come and when they've gone. We didn't have to queue to see what we wanted to this way which is excellent when only a quick visit.

A small and modest tourist hotel one block from the water bus and San Marco. Breakfast included. Room was a good size but steps very narrow and no lift. Ok for us but not accessible for those with disabilities.

This place was in a good central location but could be so much better if upgraded as the bed was uncomfortable and duvet was not so great also had to shower on my knees cause I was to tall 🙈. Wifi is 1€ an hour.

The location couldn't be better but this hotel is very poor. We were in one of the rooms round the corner from the main hotel and whilst the room was functional if not cramped with the extra bed for our child, the bathroom was pretty awful.... Breakfast was minimal and the breakfast room so tiny it could only accommodate a few guests at a time, not that there was any desire to linger as there wasn't much to eat. The coffee was good though. It is difficult to see how this can be a 3* hotel when others we have stayed in have been far superior. Disappointing.

Hotel near Ss. Marco Square, maybe 5 min on foot from the square. Rooms are not very spacious, breakfast is not rich, but who cares about that? Location is more than perfect. I truly recommend it. You can take a water taxi just in front of the hotel. I truly recommend it.

Hotel very central but very dated. First night was okay room looked clean, breakfast was nice. Staff were helpful. The second stay turned out not to be so good during the night on the last night I woke to find BED BUGS on my pillow and on the sheets. I scooped them all in to a glass and in the morning took them to the reception the gent behind the desk said are they bugs. Can I keep them to show the manager. I wasn't planning taking them home as a souvenir. There was no apologises or anything.
