“Good budget hotel”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

I stayed there for 2 nights. My room was very small but please remember, we are in the centre of Venice. Perfect location. Breakfast very, very good. Staff friendly. WIFI ok. I recommend you this hotel if you don`t need any luxury.

We loved our time in this hotel. The reception staff were most helpful, informative and quite humorous! WIFI was great, though we needed to sit in the lobby to get reception. The location is FANTASTIC... walking distance from the train station. We looked out of our window onto the stalls/shops below and LOVED all the activity! Beds were comfortable, but basic. Everything was clean., but well-loved (worn carpets on stairs). Food was simple but good: gluten-free options were a challenge in most Italian hotels (lots of sweet cakes) but this hotel wasn't too bad (boiled eggs, yoghurt and fruit were available for breakfast). Fantastic pizza and gelato just below the hotel... you can walk all over Venice from this hotel. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: We loved our 2nd floor room with a view over the street. Dated decor/bedding but who cares, with thi...

The location is the best from my POV - very near SL train station, so very convenient for coming by train. There is no elevator, but the porter brought my suitcase up. The room was not big, but cosy enough, 2 windows, a small refrigerator, a good bathroom. Not a lot of electricity sockets, but enough for a laptop. The breakfast was good enough to not feel hunger for a half of a day - hot drinks, juices, bread rolls, butter, jams, honey, cereals, milk, yogurts, cheese and 2 kinds of sausage (not the best, but OK), croissants and so on.
The staff was nice and helpful.

Room Tip: My room N48 was on the top floor and quiet, but it is only reachable by stairs.

It is a good budget hotel.
Close to railway station.
Close to a vaporetti station.
Free wifi in the lobby.
Breakfast included in the cost.
Room was decent.
Ice cream parlor beside the hotel :)

But there were no lifts in the hotel so in case your room is on high floors then be prepared to shed some calories.

Room Tip: Must have a look at the room first.

Location is awesome, wifi is advantage, you get to choose if you need breakfast on the same morning - breakfast costs 5 Euro! really cheap

Except reception, other staff were sad and gloomy.
There were few ants inside our room

Room Tip: - Best to backpackers - prime location with cheap rooms

This hotel is only good if you are looking for a cheap alternative in Venice. There are not many hotels selling at Euro58 per night with breakfast over the weekend (Friday and Saturday). We booked this hotel via Venere.com becos of affordability, wifi free (although its limited to just the lobby area) and most importantly of its location which is near the railway and bus station.

It was convenient for us as we were coming by train from Milan and we intend to use the bus (the cheapest alternative) to go to Airport for our flight home via Paris. The hotel is a mere 2 mins walk from the Rail Station and there are plenty to see right in front of the hotel. Had we decide to choose other areas, we would need water taxis (higher cost) or we will need to carry our heavy luggage which is not wise as there plenty of bridges with stairs within Venice.

The room we stayed is quite huge, offering pretty basic amenities with a window view of the noisy main street. Surprisingly, the room is sound proof once we close the window. The bed we slept on is quite dated where we can feel the spring of the mattress. Breakfast was simple with bread, croissant, hams, cereals, yogurt and fresh juice. No fresh fruits though. But they have 2 coffee makers that offers various choices of coffee.

All in all, this hotel is meant for people on budget and who intend to stay near the railway or bus station.
