“Marvellous Abbazia”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

We deliberately chose to stay 2 nights at this hotel because of its location near the train station which is just one hundred meters from the Santa Lucia train station. You won't have to cross any bridges. Simply exit the station and walk to your left. Just after the Scalzi Church on your left, take the first "calle" on you left, calle Priuli dei Cavaletti. You will pass Florida Hotel on your right and then when you reach the Chinese restaurant on your right, you'll find the Hotel Abbazia on your left.

Hotel room was clean and beds comfortable and big enough for the four of us. The lights in the room were a bit dim though. There was a bathtub in the bathroom as well. Wifi is free and TV programs available but again only 1 English news channel if I remember correctly. Anyway who is really interested in coming to Venice to watch TV programs?

Breakfast was good enough and the hotel was really lovely. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful.

The day when we wanted to roam the streets, it was raining and the streets were flooded. People were walking on elevated platforms but due to the crowds and some with luggage jamming up the walks, we decided to return to the hotel. So we experienced what they called acqua alta in Venice that day. Rubber boots can be bought from off the street vendors at 15 euro each but we borrowed ours from our hotel and so we could wander around the amazing streets of Venice and had a great time.

We paid 125 euro per night for a family room that accommodates four of us that came with breakfast. Could not think of staying anywhere else that could offer such a good deal and with great convenience near the train station with easy access to the water bus stop and other conveniences like shops and cafes everywhere near this hotel.

For us who needed to take the express bus to Innsbruck, we simply turn right and walked pass the train station and then crossed over the big bridge to reach the Plaza Roma to take the People Mover which cost 1 euro each. The first stop is for those who need to catch their cruise and the last stop will take you to the bus terminal.

We had a wonderful experience indeed. And thanks to Hotel Abbazia too!

We stayed for four nights in October, what a lovely experience.
The location of the Hotel, situated down a quaint alleyway just off the Grand Canal and near the train station, couldn't have been better. The former monastery has lots of the original features remaining yet bedrooms and bathrooms are fitted to a high standard.
Check-in was smooth and the Night Manager was welcoming and knowledgable.
We ate breakfast in the cute courtyard, this really enhanced our total experience of Venice. It was just gorgeous. We found the selection available was as you would expect a continental breakfast to be. It's fair to say that the place is unlikely to be famed for its breakfast but that's okay.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to others and look forward to visiting on our Venice vacation.

We spent only one night here but would have booked more if we hadn't been sailing the next day. Very convenient to the train station, bus station, vaparetto stop and cruise port. Very nice breakfast buffet included. The room, while small, had an upgraded bathroom. Be ready for your wake-up call to morning mass at 7:15 - we didn't mind - reminded us of being on a retreat. Front desk staff is friendly. And the price was great compared to the rest of Venice. Best of all, there is only one bridge to cross when you take the bus from the airport; and the same bridge to cross when you go to the people mover for the cruise port!!!

My husband and I only had one night stay here, but we really enjoyed it. Conveniently located, close to the train station and water taxis. The hotel has a lot of charm and beautifully decorated, the staff was just wonderful and came to the rescue when I forgot what code I typed into the room safe, we had a bit of chuckle afterwards, I think his name was Fabio?

We had a room on the second or third floor floor, can't remember but the view overlooked the garden below where we would have breakfast in the morning. I really loved the fabric they choose to decorated the room, the wallpaper, bed spread, cushions all matched, without looking too over done/overwhelmed, however the bathroom had a different feel, more modern.

The staff as I mentioned were great and let us use their luggage storage for that morning as we couldn't check in yet and also the next day as our flight wasn't till 8pm that night.

The breakfast was your usual continental style, breads, croissants, jams, cereal, even cake. I taken note, that I like their jam dispensers (pictured) and their muesli mix was awesome. Eating breakfast outside in the peaceful garden area, with the sun shinin down, gave a great start to the busy day ahead

Room Tip: I enjoyed the view from the higher floors, but there is no elevator for your lugguge

Just a couple of minutes walk from the station, this former convent has a garden you can use, even to take breakfast if the weather is good. Rooms are bit old and creaky but that what you get given the age of the building. Not bad breakfast buffet. Friendly reception staff. Vaue for money is relative in Venice. If this place was alsewhere, you'd expect it to be a bit cheaper, but not outrageous at 150 euros via internet booking.

will take care of you here. Abbazia has a wonderful, inner living room just off the lobby. It also has a great outdoors courtyard where one can hear the close-by church bells in all their glory, while relaxing in one of the different stations within. The breakfast may not be quite the all-inclusive glory that it was many years ago, or is my memory incorrect? But that is not a big deal. Here, one gets a great location by the ferrovia, essential if you plan to do any train travel. The added value of being at Abbazia also presents itself when you see all those poor suckers fresh off their trans-ocean flights trying to drag their heavy suitcases over various bridges en route to their lodgings. The vaparetto stops are right out front on the waterside, maybe 80 metres away. Ditto for gondolas. Logistical convenience abound when you choose Abbazia and that should trump any other concerns. It is by no means cheap. But it is worth it. I am done. the end.

I had a lovely stay at Hotel Abazzia. I arrived in Venice via train, so the location couldn't have been better. Even though it is so close to both the train station and a busy area, the hotel was wonderfully peaceful. My room was spacious and decorated with lovely fabrics and a Venetian chandelier. The breakfast spread was generous and varied, and it was even better when enjoyed in the beautiful garden.
The staff was friendly and helpful - one clerk saved the day when I arrived back after a full day tromping around the city and mentioned that I was too exhausted to go out to dinner, by suggesting that there was a good self-catering place around the corner. Thanks to him I was able to get freshly made risotto and a mini bottle of prosecco to bring back to my room :)
The only things keeping me from giving the hotel full marks were a) no elevator, which made bringing my heavy suitcases down from the 3rd floor cumbersome; and b) a snafu with my bill (combined with a clerk that didn't speak English) that made my check-out more stressful than necessary. However, I would highly recommend, and certainly return when if I'm lucky enough to get to go back to the amazing city of Venice.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a lower floor if you have a lot of luggage.
