Reviewed 1 September 2014

The hotel is an old abbey near the train station and Piazzale Roma, which means it's an easy walk from one of those places (remember this is Venice so no taxis). There is plenty of actions around the hotel and it's within walking distance to most tourist sites. The hotel itself is clean and the staff very helpful. As other have mentioned, they don't have elevators, but the staff will carry the luggage up for you. I booked a bigger room, and its size was convenient for three people.
All in all, I will happily go back to this hotel

Hotel is an old monk monastery, so it's interesting to look at.
2 minute walk from train station and 5 minutes walk from roma station.
So location is great. All city boat lines stop in front of train station or roma. So getting anywhere in venice is super easy.
Personnel were extremely nice and helpful.
Safe in the room.

Cons: because the hotel is an old monk monastery the rooms are tiny.
Our room had the closets added and when they did that they blocked half the air conditioner. Our room was super hot for most of the stay. We opened the windows and because it was cool at night it got nice, but the bugs ate us alive.
The hotel is back to back with a church and Sunday and Tuesday morning at 8am the bell rings. And when it rings you jump.
Our room had no desk, chair, iron or place by the sink to put anything.
The glass shower doors didn't work properly and the shower head just sprayed everywhere. The shower also had nowhere to put soap or shampoo, no shelf or anything.
No clock in the room. Tiny tv with 2 English channels.
Beds are as European and European can get.
Bathroom door is part of the closet that was installed after. So whoever is in the room when someone is in the bathroom will hear and smell everything.
No elevator, but they will happily carry your baggage up and down.

Bottom line. Good price, great location, just livable rooms.

We really enjoyed this hotel. Breakfast each morning in the courtyard was great and there was more than a sufficient amount of fruit, pasty and cereals to choose from. Even the morning church bells had an added charm. We had the four person room as we had two teens traveling with us and it was spacious and comfortable. The location is great after a long flight as it's a short walk from the Piazzale Roma where the buses stop from the airport. Also convenient if you're renting a car after your Venice trip. I would definitely stay here again.

My 2nd visit in 2 years did not disappoint. Convenience for railway station and vaporretto stop unbeatable. Also if you walk 5 minutes you find yourself in the Jewish ghetto which is lovely and quiet compared to the main drag to San Marco but still very picturesque. Only gripe is a small one - exactly that : the rooms are a bit small but that is the curse of many city hotels.

After flying all night and lugging suitcases through the rain, this hotel and ALVISE (with his positive sense of humor)were a delight. Our first floor room was charming overlooking a courtyard and the lobby was a huge, air conditioned room with lots of seating (hotel was formerly a monastery). The hotel is situated close to the train station, vaporetto lines and shopping-on a quiet alleyway.
Breakfast was not as abundant as in some Italian hotels, but it was good and definitely sufficient. The staff was very helpful, funny and spoke English well. It was a most enjoyable stay!

Room Tip: I liked my room on the first floor overlooking the courtyard-very charming and roomy.

Great staff experience in particular Alvise, Matthew & Raffaele
Location was also great as there were no bridges to go over from the train station
When my wife and I revisit Venezia we will not consider any other hotels and simply book Hotel Abbazia, Venezia Italy

Hotel Abbazia is in perfect location right next to train, bus and airport departures, Hotel is in converted Abby so has all the charm of an Abby allowing for a very relaxing time. Close to amazing restaurants and shopping areas. Staff are very friendly and helpful, breakfast and or an end of day drink in gardens is a bonus
