If you could sell smiles here you could be rich !!!
The room was clean and very large the bed required a new mattress one could feel the
Springs inside and was two mattresses pushed together. The younger waitress huffed and puffed when asked for an extra coffee !!! The breakfast was good , place was clean and tidy , but that bed omg , ' The green room ' !!!!
I travel the world this is the first time l have ever left such comments , sorry !!!

Room Tip: Ask if mattresses are new

I've heard many dislike this place, I thought it was great. We only stayed a night as we were travelling to Croatia, but the manager was very kind. Great place to stay if you need somewhere close to the coach station.

I would have given this hotel a 3.5 rating as it's probably above 'average' but not quite 'very good'.

We chose it purely due to the location - half way between the bus station and the San Basilio cruise terminal - as we just wanted a place to lay our heads for one night. Venice hotels are notoriously pricey and this one was actually pretty cheap for Venice

It is, as other people have pointed out, more of a B&B than a hotel. However, the man who checked us in was perfectly friendly and - unlike mentioned on a previous review - stepped outside to smoke!!

The room was pretty basic and small but perfectly adequate for our needs. We had a big, nicely decorated bathroom and the mini bar was stocked with a good selection at very reasonable prices. The wifi signal was strong. I would disagree with some complaints about breakfast which was more was more than adequate for our needs with the usual choices of cold meats/cheeses, warm pastries/croissants, yogurt, fruit and juices - and delicious cappuccino. I'm really not sure what some people expect of breakfast in a budget hotel. The location of the hotel is very quiet.

I would stay here again but only if I needed the same location and was only staying one night as the price makes it good value for Venice. However, for someone looking for a 'proper hotel' experience, and staying more than one night it may be a bit limited.

I recently stayed here with my husband, it was booked last minute and was about the cheapest hotel we could find. The rooms are decorated in a traditional Venitian style. The breakfast is nothing special, but as it is a relatively cheap hotel (compared to the going rate) you can just leave it and there are loads of places locally that do amazing coffee and pastries.
It only took us about 5 minutes to walk to the bus station. And it was about a 20-30 minute walk to San Marcos square.
I would recommend this hotel but expect to get what you pay for.... A good base for a holiday but nothing too special!

This place should definitely not be called a hotel . At best it's a b&b! Dated (but clean) rooms , tiny lobby/reception/ breakfast area and very unfriendly and unhelpful staff . No hospitality skills what so ever . In fact , never even greeted us with a hello . Just asked for passport and slapped keys on counter . Hotel is classified as non smoking but owner sits at entrance smoking non stop so the entire ground floor smells of smoke , including the room , which is on the ground floor ( one of a grand total of 7 rooms ) . The mini bar fridge did not work and smelled of old rotting fish - when reported we were told it would be fixed , but never happened , the same for the broken toilet seat . Overall , not a pleasant experience at all !!! Would not recommend this place unless you just looking for a bed and place to park your belongings !
