Pantalon Hotel3.0 out of 5.0

Stayed last week of August 2017, which is a very busy tourist season in Venice. Couldn't have been more pleased about the neighborhood, which is convenient enough but seemingly cut off from the mobs of noisy tourists. Good selection of reasonably priced restaurants with a rather more dignified crowd in the dining rooms. We really enjoyed the Trattoria Da Silvio down the street. The hotel itself is very modest and not "fancy" at all ( with the exception of the many campy Venetian chandeliers throughout.) But for the price, the helpful staff and decent breakfast buffet, along with the clean, basic room were right for the price. Would definitely stay again on my next visit. Great for the tourist who just needs a clean bed, hot shower and something good to eat in the morning before they are out for their day of exploring.
Nice hosts, room cleaned daily, sheets changed the third day, breakfast satisfying, great location. We would come back for sure if we visit Venice again. We actually can't think of anything bad about this hotel.
We were staying for 7 nights so we booked one of the 'suite' rooms which we thought would be better for a longer stay. On arrival we booked in at the hotel itself which took about 10 minutes. The tourist tax was taken at the same time - this is standard practice in Italy so we were expecting it. The room was clean enough on arrival and quite large. The kitchenette unit was also clean and all crockery/utensils were neatly stored within the unit. The location was good - not too busy but within easy walking distance of most sites of interest and there were plenty of resonably priced restaurants just around the corner. Unfortunately this is about the best I can say about the 'suite'. The suite is located about 10 minutes walk (with cases in tow) from the actual hotel and over 2 bridges. Anybody who has mobility problems might have struggled. This should have been made clearer on the hotel descriptions. The suite itself is really just a large room with en-suite bathroom. The kitchenette basically comprised of a 2 ring cooker top and sink unit, a small fridge and limited storage. There were no teaspoons and we ended up buying some plastic ones from the supermarket. Three pans were provided. I was looking forward to brewing a coffee in the coffee pot but it was dirty and the rubber seal was old, perished and stuck to the coffee pot. I bought some instant instead and boiled pans of water to make coffee. The double bed was actually 2 singles pushed together with a double bedspread on top - no big deal but a little weird as the singles were made up separately under the bedspread. There wasn't much soundproofing and we could hear those in the adjoining apartment. The bathroom was fine except for the wire to the hairdryer. At some point it looks like somebody pulled the wiring loose because the wiring was taped up with sellotape. Although it was advertised that the apartment was not serviced, an adequate supply of toilet roll might have been nice. The heating in the room was virtually non existent. There was a towel radiator in the bathroom which only worked to a third of the way up and none whatsoever in the large apartment room. We did report this to the reception staff but were told that the heating only came on if the temperature dropped below 25°. I can assure you that the temperature was well below 25° for the full duration of our stay and apart from the dodgy bathroom radiator, at no point did any heating kick in. We resorted to making separate tents in our separate beds to keep warm at night and although we would have liked to spend some a quiet evening or two in the apartment, the temperature was so low that it was preferable to go out and warm up in a restaurant. I would not revisit this particular hotel, especially in winter - there were just too many little niggles and the lack of heating put a proper tarnish on what could have been a lovely quaint room.
Stayed over the New Year, good location 20 mins walk to St Marks’ square and other sites. Quite quick check in, no lift so be prepared to carry any luggage up some suite steep stairs. Room was a double, but a small double, if you want a little more space then go for a triple, walls are quite thin and you can hear the people talking in neighbouring rooms, the bed was very creaky and the mattress quite thin, won’t suit everyone, I was ok but my partner didn’t sleep well on it. The room is ok just for somewhere to sleep and get ready to go exploring Venice. En suit might be better being made in to a wet room, the bath is very small and the shower has no shower curtain so the water goes all over, again it’s compact but not like you live in the bathroom. Breakfast was ok, basic continental, but croissants were limited to 1 each, these were fresh and I could have eaten more. You do get a bit of street noise, even on the second floor. Rooms are very typical of Venice size and style. Pleasant stay, nice staff and a the best bit the location for all the main areas.
This is not a luxury hotel but it is very good value. It's small, which is probably typical of Venice hotels, but it has everything you need. It is very convenient for everything, close to all the sights and with plenty of bars and restaurants around it. The location is perfect. They also provide a good breakfast. Make sure you do your research though on how to find it from the bus station. It took us an hour the find it when we arrived, but only 10 minutes to walk back to the bus station when we were leaving.
The breakfast was awful - ery limited selection and what food there was was stale and not very tasty. We had to leave and go get food elsewhere. When we checked out early in the morning we found the staff asleep on the foyer floor!!!
This hotel is centrally located with good access to most parts of Venice. The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was quite reasonable! The only downsides were the very small cramped room and the climb up the stairs (no lift)!
Stayed in room 103. It was clean and maintained...it also had enough mirrors/mirrored doors to keep Simon Cowell happy (10 in total) and a glorious chandelier that rocked gently when Italy suffered its earthquake on Sunday 30th October. The wet room adds to the quirky charm as you can gaze at the shower fittings, with your feet in the shower tray, during your time seated on the throne. Great water pressure! The bed is comfy bit the room got a little stuffy so the wonderful shutters were swung open each day for a view on the wall across the street. Breakfast was your basic continental style...they even had English Breakfast tea as an option! Just outside the hotel is a fab little 5 Euro a pot take away spaghetti dish place (think 5 star pot noodle...all freshly made on the premises). A few doors down there's a takeaway pizza shop and the other way a nice, reasonably priced, restaurant. It took about 25mins to walk to St. Marks Square at a leisurely pace and about 3mins walk from the hotel is a square, I couldn't find the name of but not Pantalon, that has a wee supermarket and some nice little cafes. Brits take note: There is no kettle in the room so unless the tall grey haired guy is on the front desk, who was willing to provide some hot water, there's not much point smuggling your PG Tips into the country. Have a great stay...I did!
I used to take groups to this hotel until about fifteen years ago and, although I have been back to Venice many time since then, I always stayed in other hotels. For this visit I was looking for a hotel which is within walking distance of Piazzale Roma (the last place you can take road transport into Venice), was easily accessible from the railway station (without being right by it) and was reasonably-priced. Going back was like meeting an old friend, but one who hasn't looked after himself particularly well over the years. The rooms are small, which is normal for a room priced liked this in Venice. We stayed in two different ones, taking a short break in between to go to Verona, and both were OK although very tired. On the plus side, the hotel is clean and staff are friendly. When we arrived the receptionist advised us not to book breakfast but to go to a local café, which we did and it was perfect. For convenience, I would book this hotel again and it would be great if they refurbished the rooms. I wouldn't mind paying extra if they were smartened up.
If you are looking for a good clean hotel in a great location at a realistic price then the Pantalon is for you. If you need great views, a huge bedroom and bathroom then go and pay through the nose elsewhere. Staff were pleasant, well presented and helpful. The location is a ten minute walk from the bus and train terminals and bearing in mind that all I did was sleep and shower there, it more than met my needs. Wi Fi was good .. All in all, good value.
