We did not stay overnight in the hotel but booked a room here to store our luggages for 9h while we explored venice before leaving on a night train. We chose this hotel due to its proximity to the main train station and its affordable price of 27.50 Euro (it is cheaper than leaving 4 pieces of luggage at the luggage store at the train station). Its also acts as a rest stop for us to bathe and freshen up before leaving Venice on a long train ride.
Was apprehensive because of the previous mixed reviews but the hotel is actually ok for the price paid. Firstly, the hotel is located on a busy main tourist street so there is no lack of activities once you step out. It is 5 min walk from the train station and there is no lift. Yes, like what previous reviews mentioned, the entrance is actually located in a small alley (<1m width) between 2 buildings. We had large luggages with us but managed to get through the alley. We only need to walk 10 steps in that alley to reach the hotel entrance so it is really not that bad as mentioned in other reviews.
The room itself is basic and adequate for the price paid. The toilet facilities are good and even comes with a hair dryer. There is ample hot water with good pressure in the shower. Security wise is ok even with no reception (reception is in another building) as there are many security cameras at the corridors. I think there is no hot water kettle in the room.
For the price paid, I am satisfied with the room and location of this hotel. I would recommend it for budget travellers and day-trip travellers like me with lots of luggage to store while exploring Venice.
