“Good value and great location”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

We arrived to Venice by train and used the clear instructions on the hotel website to find where they were located. We had no issues with these instructions although the hotel is down a small alleyway (as with most of Venice!) so that's handy to know because it's hard to tell that from a map.
The front desk staff were friendly and informative when we arrived and our room was ready before check in time which was great. Room was quite well sized and very clean.
Just outside St Marks square, close to a water taxi stop which makes it easy to get around however we walked everywhere.
Breakfast was very good and not too busy. However there are lots of places close by to eat and have a drink.

My husband and I spent one night at the best Western Monte Carlo. The room we were placed in was immaculate. It was decorated in a most lovely way, the service at this hotel was spectacular, and they have a wonderful breakfast as well. I would absolutely recommend this hotel and when I travel to Venice again, I will most definitely stay at this hotel. Definitely worth the value.

We stayed here for two nights.
Here is the good:
1) Sevice staff was excellent and responsive.
2) Room was actually bigger than I had hoped (very comfortable)
3) Breakfast was great.
4) Central location to St. Mark's Square and the Rialto Bridge

Now the bad.
1) Very hard to find (seems common among hotels in Venice)
2) View from our room was of a tight dark walkway.

It wasn't the most expensive hotel in Venice so I can give the view a pass along with having to hunt for it with our luggage in tow. Overall, I would recommend it from a value standpoint.

We stayed in Montecarlo for 2 nights. We heard of how small the hotel rooms in Venice were but we were not expecting this. Literally, my feet were hanging outside the bed when we were sleeping. The room was the size of my office back at home - 10x15. I'm surprised they were able to fit a bed in there. Outside of the sleeping accommodations, the location is amazing and the front desk staff were top notch. It's very old fashioned, which my wife and I enjoyed. They still use keys - with a very heavy bell looking thing attached to it, so you're best off not carrying it around. I also think they maintain head count by making you return the key as you head out, which definitely is a plus.
The hotel staff also are affiliated with a Murano store, which offers a "free" boat right to Murano and Signoretti's glass store. Once you arrive, they give you a tour of the place and then, of course, begin hoarding you with all of the beautiful, hand made Murano glassware, which costs upwards of 10,000 Euros... Having traveled the world, we were expecting this, so as long as you're disciplined and just say "no", you'll be fine. Otherwise, you get a free boat ride from and to Murano - and on a sunny day, you can see the Alps in the horizon.
We met another couple that used Homeaway.com and was able to rent a 2 bed, 2 bath room for about the same price as this hotels runs for, but 10x the size. This might be an alternative if you're traveling with a big group.
Overall, the location is great and the breakfast buffet is very tasty. The mini croissants are delicious.
Oh... and don't forget to try Alfredo's.

Room Tip: Recommend getting a mini map before you go because the streets are very confusing. When you arrive a...

We stayed in this hotel for a couple of day the end of March, 2014. The hotel is in a great location....within a two to three minute walk from San Marco. Very quiet location. The bedrooms were very clean and spacious with very comfortable beds. The bathrooms were a good size , with a great shower and plenty of toiletries and towels. The reception staff were wonderful....very helpful! The breakfast buffet was delicious with lots to chose from. We were in a group of four, so we had two rooms...both very nice. I would definitely stay here again.

We are staying in the 2 bed apartment which is just around the corner from the Hotel, great apartment, spacious, comfortable, and well equipped. Would definitely recommend to anyone coming to Venice. The location next to St Marks is fantastic as you can get to most of the main sites really easily.

Spent a week in May in this lovely hotel and don't have a bad thing to say about it. The hotel was easy to find with a map provided in advance by the hotel and is in a great location close to San Marco. The reception staff were excellent and very helpful. All other staff we met were equally as pleasant and helpful. The room was a good size, comfortable beds,good sized bathroom, great shower, good toiletries, well stocked and reasonably priced minibar. We had a lovely holiday and would certainly stay in this hotel again
