“Ah, Venezia!”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

The location & the view out the window are the best parts of this small hotel. It's right by the lagoon and a canal, and it's really amazing to look out and see the world of Venice. At the same time, it's removed from the tourist hubbub. The Dorsoduro neighborhood is very pleasant, but not a long walk to Piazza San Marco, etc. Very near the Guggenheim! On the downside, we were plagued by mosquitoes. Wish they had screens. Breakfast was fine, but nothing special. We had much better breakfasts at other places. The room was comfortable other than buzzing in the night. Bathroom was immediately across the hall.

Troughout the twentieth century, Pensione Seguso provided visitors –often writers and artists—with a charming haven surrounded with the sound of water and facing the Giudecca canal. In the twenty-first century breakfast improved .It used to be elegant and spartan. It became elegant and frugal. Yet the old patrician furniture needs some repair . Stucco decorated walls need fresh paint. Room doors need contemporary keys. Guests must often choose between a private bathroom and a beautiful view .. I suggest choosing the view . But this landmark deserves to be saved. Why not back the pensione’s charm with a few amenities. (Safes ? coffee makers ? air conditioned? new doors ?)

Room Tip: The rooms are all different. They can be large or small : offer a wonderful front view on the...

Pensione Seguso is in a cute area, close to the water. They offer views of the small canals from the rooms. The service was average. Breakfast was also average...cold cereal, bread, jelly, ham, croissants, juice. The rooms were not very impressive. Wifi only on the main floor lounge. The floor in our room didn't appear to have been swept prior to our arrival. There is NO A/C and it gets very hot in the rooms. I would not recommend staying here in the hot summer months. We slept with the windows open, woke up a few hours into the night with tons of mosquito bites all over our bodies. It was miserable. The day we checked out we also noticed ants on the floor and bed. Never the less, we would not recommend this pensione. This pensione was a big disappointment....

Pensione Seguso has the best river view of Venice. it located in the quiet riverside. not close to the train station but the water bus can reach it very easliy. Breakfast outside, watching the beatiful view was just perfect. I stayed in a single room with a small balcony with river view, room is very clean, bathroom is big. it is just everything I need. Restaurants recommendation from the receptionist was just perfect. For an expensive city like Venice, this hotel is really worth its price. I would highly recommend this place for all the travellers who wants to enjoy the peace of Venice

We stayed (for the second time) at Pensione Seguso in October 2012. Our first visit had been ten years earlier, and we had loved the neighborhood, location and friendly staff, so we came back. Things were essentially the same, but we were disappointed to hear that they had stopped serving dinner - ten years earlier, we got free breakfast AND a free dinner - and the dinners were AMAZING. Unfortunately most of their guests began eating out (the restaurant scene in Venice has improved greatly in the last decade) so dinner was eliminated. (FYI, for a quick dinner near the pensione, there is a great restaurant next door at a new hotel, La Piscina, which was very good.)
The location of the Pensione can't be beat. It sits on the water, literally 100 feet from the Zatterre vaporetto stop. No dragging luggage over bridges and through crowded Venice streets - get off the vaporetto and walk into your hotel! Easy.
The staff goes out of their way to be helpful - we had noisy people in the room next to us, so after the first night they voluntarily moved us to another room, and were very apologetic.
This is not a fancy place - but it is clean, convenient, and the staff could not be more helpful. A good value for the price.

The Pensione Seguso is a marvelous little place to stay in Venice. It is a small pensione (hotel), located with a canal view in a great location. We stayed in room 21. It had two small balconies. When we checked in, a street musician was playing an accordion just beneath our room. If you take the water taxi or water bus (Ali laguna), the pensione is visible just before reaching the stop "Zattere". Even my wife was impressed, and she is almost never impressed.

A nice continental breakfast is served. The staff was very pleasant and helpful, and speaks English.

Room Tip: Room 21 is a premier room with a private bath and bathroom. Some of the smaller rooms share a toile...
