Recent guest reviews

We stayed for 4 nights. The Hotel is very badic. We liked the price and we got what we paid for! It needs a refurbishment desperately. Beds were cleaned and made everyday. The carpets were badly worn amd if you struggle with stairs dont come here. Basic breakfast, they do well for a place with no kitchen just sink dishwasher and a coffee machine. Breakfast room is a nice room and theres enough of what you need to start your day. The location is the best to shout about. Central to everything you need and easy to find despite the narrow little street. Hotel is not all in one location.

My girlfriend brought me here as a surprise, we got bumped up to the topmost room they possessed. It was the only room on the 5th floor, and quite isolated. Perfect for us as a couple! First of all, there are a lot of stairs, but we travelled light, so it was no problem. The room looks very old, but it was clean and did the job. Everything seemed sort of miniature there, the shower looks very small. It is very close to San Marco and other viewing places, so it is easily accessible. They offer separate wi-fi for each device you bring, but we had very poor connection. We did not need it much except for directions anyway. The breakfast is very basic, but we preferred sleeping in, and then eating somewhere else "brunch"-style and more "Italian". The staff was kind to us, and readily offered information when asked. My gf requested bubbly wine upon our arrival, and there it was in a wine cooler inside the room - very nice! All in all, very cute place (partially to the mini-ness of some of the appliances) and it did the job for us!

Not the best of experience, missing basic amenities e.g. no Wi-Fi, room wasn't even in the main building; the one main thing going for it is the location, right around the corner from Piazza San Marco and Saint Mark's Basillica other than that, I am certain there are better value for money hotels in Venice

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.
