“Nice hotel - very nice staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

We stayed here one night while in Venice last week The hotel was very clean, we had a Superior room which was quite large although pretty dark. We looked out at a brick wall, however it did not matter because we spent no time except to sleep in the room.
Staff was very nice. You are offered a free boat ride to a Murano glass factory upon arrival however we had no interest in that as I had already been there in the past.
The only thing I would have done differently was to take a different water bus to the hotel from the train station (we had taken the train in from Florence). We took the no. 2 bus and went all the way to the San Marco stop to get off. We had 12 stops along the way with people pouring on at every stop and it took an hour of being packed in like sardines to get to the hotel. When we left to go back to Florence we caught the no. 2 water bus at the Rialto stop and it took us directly to the train station with no stops in between. All in all it was a lovely day and evening in Venice and we would stay at the same hotel if we went back again.

This hotel was a happy surprise for my family. Very near St Mark's square and all the shops. The rooms and bathrooms were clean, and room was spacious enough for a couple with 2 small kids. The free buffet breakfast was delicious. Front desk staff were very helpful when we would ask for directions. The hotel also provides a complimentary water taxi to visit Murano island.

My only complaint is that the desk manager manning the night shift was not very helpful. When we asked for an extra towel, his reply was "Why do you need an extra towel? You already have three." He would always be outside and having a smoke when he was supposed to be manning the front desk.

The night shift guy aside, we had a very pleasant stay. I would choose this hotel again if I return to Venice in the future.

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...
