“Nice surprise”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

We have booked this property despite the feedbacks we have read on TripAdvisor.
It's been definitely a good choice. Warm welcome, friendly staff, bit small but well appointed and clean room. Good quality breakfast buffet.
Excellent location to discover the city

I stayed 2 nights 29,30 of jan 2014 in the continental hotel
It was a very nice experience,the place bland with Venice and give you strong feeling of the city.the servic,the friendliness,the clear and tidy rooms,the accomodeting staff following the flood (high tide) in the ground floor.
The beautiful scenery of the canal from our window.unfortunatly we were unable to use the balcony of the restaurant due to the rain and the flood
We strongly recommend the hotel,it is good vallue for money

We want to thankyou for our lovelly vacation in venice. Thank you for the lovelly room you arranged us . All the employees in the hotel are very polite and give the guests good atmosphere. All the workers at the front desk are pleasant. The women at the breakfast room- Luigina ,Giorgia and Elisa are pleasant and always welcome us with a smile and with a big will to help. The room -109 was very comfortable and cleen. with a canal view. Every thing was excelent and we think that this hotel is perfect for many reasons to give you a perfect vacation. All the bad reviews are not true the hotel is cleen and nice and all is perfect.

We checked in at november, 15th in room nr. 271, and could not believe our eyes.
The room was tiny, and dirty, dirty, dirty. Starting from the walls to the floor, unbelievable!!
Moreover there was no heater in the bathroom (november) besides, that the window was broken,and the heater in the tiny, dirty room did not even work.
Most interesting- for microbiologists only- was the load of bioburden (yeast and mould) in the bathroom.
We have been relocated the next day, nevertheless too late.
Hopefully we don't get ill.
We will certainly never come back to this hotel!!!

We stayed at this hotel in October as part of a tour group and many of us had read reviews of the hotel beforehand and were a little concerned about staying here. Luckily, it turned out to be just fine and many of the things prior reviewers complained about were really nothing. It is quite interesting to try and find your room - and it actually took us close to 2 days to remember exactly how to get to it - but we thought that was actually kind of charming. There are little staircases and hallways all over the place, and there seemed to be a couple of different ways to get there. Anyway, the hotel is old, but it's very clean and the rooms are fine. It is in a great location and I thought the breakfasts were fine and the dinner we had there was actually very good. Maybe the front desk people are not the friendliest, but they weren't rude and I didn't think there was any problem with them.

We have stayed 2 nights in this hotel and cost us 249 Euro, the room was very basic and old, just like hostel style with private bath, it's not worth the price what we have paid for. A little bit noisy because there was a band playing in its restaurant , we like this location ,but will not consider to stay here again.
