My friends and I stayed in this hotel for one night whilst in Venice as we couldn't find budget accommodation in the city on such short notice. Directions from the train station were good (only a ten minute walk - also good), but we quickly felt that the area wasn't wonderful - lots of people sitting around in the area and we felt slightly ill-at-ease.
On checking in, the guy at reception left us rather frustrated. He was really unfriendly, unhelpful, recommended the most expensive restaurant in the area. He insisted on holding all of our passports and to our horror stored them with the room keys behind reception - literally in the pidgeon holes behind a wooden screen that slides... we saw some other passports there too... EXTRAORDINARILY DODGY AND UNSAFE PRACTICE. I'm rather attached to my passport and the potential to go missing there is dreadful.
He offered us breakfast for €8 per person... for a continental breakfast! At least twice as much as it'd cost elsewhere. Needless to say we declined.
He informed us that we'd be staying in a building next to Hotel Aaron around the corner... in other hotels somebody would bring you around but nope... found our own way.
Can't specifically remember the WiFi prices other than that they looked way more expensive than everywhere else we'd stayed and we didn't avail of it for that reason.
The room itself... beds were fine, surprised pleasantly to find a fridge, tv, clean bathroom with hot shower. However, the shower is in a bathtub with NO WALL FITTING, and NO SHOWER CURTAIN/WATERGUARD. Pretty ridiculous and uncomfortable.
We paid €33 per person per night which in hindsight is a reasonable price but the whole experience left us cold. Not happy. Would not recommend. Definitely not.
