Hotel in great location. Easy to get to from airport on public water taxi, alilaguna orange line. Most staff friendly. Didn’t give any info re hotel - had to ask where breakfast room was. We had a side room on first floor. No view and woken by restaurant underneath replenishing bottles early am. Room absolutely stank of stale smoke. Had to open windows the whole time we were in room. Bathroom and room clean and tidy. Bath small but shower good. Breakfast nice. Only one English tv channel that worked! Hotel issued a map of Venice which was very helpful. Close to Rialto bridge and about 15min walk to st marks square. Lots of places to eat varying prices.

We’d booked with Easyjet holidays and chose it as so central. What a joy! Airport boat direct to Rialto so very easy. The stop is the other side of the ridhe. We were upgraded, randomly, and joy! Got the rooms at the front overlooking the canal. One of the beat ever rooms with a view. The room was large comfortble, fairly rococco, very Venetian and had the view. Breakfast too was a nice surprise with fruits, yoghurts pastries and cooked food. Much more than we were expecting. Venice was freezing but we were warm inside. The location of course couldnt be beat. We were very very happy with our choice.

Stayed in room 302. Most staff were very nice and friendly, very bad smell throughout hotel which caused bad sleep. First and second night was woken up at 7.30am from labourers which we wasn’t notified about this carried on throughout the day. No tea and coffee makers, no actual duvet( was snowing so was freezing in the night ) The bathroom was clean, the shower was very good but the bath very small.

We decided to give this hotel a try for two nights on our trip to Venice. It was cheap and in a good location. Upon arrival, the entry way smelt of stale cigarette smoke, but the staff was nice and polite. We were in room #1. The room was very small, barely fitting the two of us and our two pieces of luggage (only one person could walk around the room at a time). The room was on ground floor and the windows were stained glass so there wasn’t much light. Our biggest complaint was that the bathroom smelt of sewage. At first it didn’t seem too bad but by the second day it was to the point we didn’t want to use it. If you left the door open the odor would immediately fill the room. I give it two stars, one for location the other for staff.

The location was ideal for several reasons: readily accessible from the airport by taking Alilaguna, within a short walking distance of the Piazza San Marco as well as other fun sights especialy during Carnivale 2018, and of course, practically next to the Ponte Rialto.The hotel is "funky" in a great Old World style, has great views of the Grand Canal, and the staff were friendly and efficient.

GREAT LOCATION : We Stayed in Hotel Marconi for two days. Hotel has magnificent and wonderful and PERFECT location near Railto Bridge on Grande Canal and our room number was 402 for two nights. Took Water Taxi from Railto Water Station (just opposite to Hotel Marconi) direct to Airport in €15 per person (Very Cheap) whereas Taxi will take €100 for airport. Hotel is very near to Marco Polo home, Can take Gondala Ride right in front of Hotel, Brilliant sitting arrangment in front of hotel to have Lunch or dinner right on side of Grand Canal. Price is competitive and staff really helpful and friendly and staff advice us which places we can visit in Venice and advice how to take Water Taxi. Buffet Breakfast is good in Hotel. Room was ok and cleaned all day with facility of Air conditioners, Bathroom, Fridge with all basic needs, and have traditional old furniture and mirror etc. Will recommend all to stay in this hotel if you really wants to enjoy Grand Canal and Rialto Bridge, No other hotel have this wonderful location as Marconi Hotel has. Highly recommended to all to book this Hotel Marconi, Venice, Italy. +39-041-5222068. Mrs Promila Rajani and Mr Pawan Kumar Rajani

Great location. Very close to the Rialto Bridge (1min walk). We stayed in Venice for two nights. Took the water taxi from the airport which was €27 return and took about 30-40mins. Stopped at the Rialto stop which was opposite the hotel. We requested a twin bedroom as it was my mum and I but when we were showed our room it was a double bed so went down to reception and he put us in a triple room((5)02)! The room was big and spacious compared to the first one but I guess that’s what you get for a triple room. The room included a mini bar/fridge, free (but slow) WiFi, sky tv (all in Italian unless you want to watch the stocks in English), little toiletries, hairdryer and personal safe. The room needs a bit of updating. No remote for the actual tv, paint peeling from the walls, buttons missing from the heating panel, a bit of mould on the bathroom grout but otherwise quite decent. Breakfast was okay. Hot food wasn’t hot. It only consisted of scramble egg, bacon and frankfurters. Otherwise you have toasts, pastries, yogurts, cold meats and hot tea and coffee and orange juice. Was a hesitant of the hotel because of the price and looks but will definitely come again because of the price and location. Everything is accessible and walking around to the north/south of Venice will only take around 30mins max.

We had room 101, which has 2 fantastic balconies just in front of the Canal Grande and is offering a great view on the Rialto Bridge. Room size was definitely enough to host 4 people. Breakfast had provision for both Italian and Continental options.

Tourists please take minimum baggage, as there is no elevator in the hotel. To reach there also we had to carry 4 big bags via around 80 staircase bridge. Then to the first floor . After reaching in the hotel room, if you are thinking of resting for a while , forget about it. Foul smell all inside the hotel and hotel Rooms. Rooms are exceptionally small, with haunted and horror movie kind of mirrors and lights. No coffee or tea maker provided. Staff was rude. Except the location of the hotel, and its bathrooms ( surprisingly ) nothing was good.

Stayed at the Marconi for 3 nights with friends. Hotel is located perfectly next to the Rialto bridge. Also we found a whole other area to explore behind the hotel. Hotel is a standard Venetian hotel, no lift, quite old fashioned but does the job. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The breakfast consists of things like, scrambled eggs, meats, cheeses, yoghurts, pastries, cereals and toast etc.We didn’t have a canal view but did look into a quaint little street which was fine. The hotel is warm so if you’re a freezer you’ll be in your element! Beds, bathroom and room clean. Tv with only Italian channels, hairdryer in bathroom. Mini fridge in room is stocked with cans and water - chargeable (cans are €3.50). Front desk staff helpful. There was a €3 per night room tax per person which we only realised at check out but as we had such an awesome time this was perfectly acceptable. The alilaguna boat to airport is directly opposite hotel (€15). Would definitely stay here again and recommend to any visitors to Venice.
