“Breath in!”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

If you want a great location without the stratospheric prices of some of the grander hotels, then the Montecarlo is fine. But, oh boy is it cramped. Maybe we were unlucky as our room, Room 302, would certainly be classified as a single room if it was in London. I did speak to reception about it but they said all the rooms were the same size - which now I look at other travellers photographs was simply not true. To make the bed fit the double headboard has been sawed down and the bed is pushed up against the wall. This might be fine for younger travellers but at my age I expect to walk around a bed and get into it, not have to climb over from one side. The cramped conditions slightly soured the 40th wedding anniversary trip, though the staff were fine as was breakfast. As other reviewers mentioned it is difficult to find so check Google and other reviewers directions as getting lost when you have luggage isn't fun.

Room Tip: Ask for one where you can get into bed from either side!

Venetian decor and furnishing. Very helpful and friendly staff. Substantial breakfast. Lounge are for daytime drinks and nibbles. Most important just around the corner from St Marks square. That means when you've had enough of walking and sight seeing you can nip back for rest before setting off for more.

Room Tip: We stayed in different parts of the hotel, all good. Top room at the front you can see over the Squa...

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.
