Location – Close to the Santa Lucia tran station, no bridges or stairs in between – very important in Venice! Hard to locate (“streets” in Venice have different shapes LOL), Google Maps directions will take you anywhere. To find it walk in the main street just outside the station, take the second “alley” on the left (right before Hotel Nazionale, if you look down you will see a mosaic that says “Albergo Santa Lucia”). Go straight to the end of the alley, there is Calle Pesaro. The hotel is right at that corner. The neighborhood itself is not that nice, but it is conveniently located. For dinner, I suggest crossing the bridge and heading towards Piazzale Roma. You will find very nice little trattorias and pizzerias bordering the canals.
Status – Cozy, comfortable, clean. Nice atmosphere. No elevator, but in our case we had no issues getting to our room, just 8 steps up and 8 steps down.
Check –in / Check-out – Simple and fast. We were provided great maps to find our way in the city (much better than the ones we took!).
Personnel – Overall friendly, great English.
Internet – Only in the lobby.
Size / Furniture – Incredibly large! We made a mistake when booking and booked a triple instead of a double. The room was huge! Plenty of closets, night-tables, drawers, even a little sofa. And we had our very own private patio! Though not too fancy, it gave us a great spot to relax after a long day walking.
Air conditioning – Good.
TV – Ok size, we did not use it at all.
Bed – Comfortable, great pillows.
Deco – Quite nice, tasteful. Wooden ceilings gave it a very intimate atmosphere.
Minibar – No.
Size – Pretty large. The shower was tiny.
Water pressure – Good.
Toiletries – Re-filled every day, basics: soap, shampoo, shower cap.
Towels – So many towels! I loved that.
Variety – Rather limited, every day the same. Croissants, bread, yogurt, cereal, ham, juice and coffee.
Quality – Coffee was ok, even though it was from a machine. Croissants were yummy!
Cleanliness – All tables were cleaned very fast, we were impressed.
Rather good for Venice – in general, it is a more expensive city. We were overall very satisfied with the hotel.
Bottom line – would I stay here again?
Yes, I think so. The room was comfortable, the service was good, conveniently located, the price was reasonable. Everything you need.
