First things first it is important to note that this hotel is very cheap and, therefore, you shouldn't expect a 5* hotel. Having said this, our room was fine, a little dated but the bed and the bathroom were clean and comfy. The shower was...More
We booked to stay here after a horrendous night at another place in Venice during the scorching summer. Being last minute we did pay quite a bit more for the hotel but we were satisfied.
It's proximity to the train/bus station is convenient although it...More
This is not a luxury hotel (some frayed carpeting, quirky location for light switches, narrow stairs), but we wanted to have a decent quiet room ensuite near the train station, and this proved to be well worth our return visit. The staff is eager to...More

I rarely do negative reviews, but in this case an 'average' is very generous.
Stayed just 3 nights.
Hotel is very well located as near to the Railway Station. A big plus!
It is very well priced and budget I know.

Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby
shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.

Breakfast is served from sevenish to at least nine. We loved the individual tables, full number of choices, and coffee that you could machine program to be exactly what we wanted. If you need to get there earlier, just ask that they provide some items that you can pack on your way to the train station, which is a five-minute walk.

When we moved from Venice to Florence we had to go from Mestre. You can get a train from St Lucia, which is 5 mins from the hotel. We bought our tickets using the machines in St Lucia train station. Very easy to use. Ticket was €1.25 and it takes 15mins to get to Mestre.
