“Terrible!”
Reviewed 15 July 2012

What a shock when we arrived at this hotel in one of the most beautifull places in the world. The hotel is dark and gloomy with painting peeling from the wall. Our room had a "view" on dirty rooftops and wall. Curtains are dirty. Bathroom so ugly and small. Breakfast is served in the "garden" which looked more a like rundown "not look after" backyard! This is defintely not a 3 star hotel. At most a low grade 2 star or 1 star. We opt to only stay 1 night although we have booked and pay for 2. You can get much better value for money in Venice-just shop around a bit!!

This hotel is not being maintained by its owners. The smell of mildew and dust was present throughout the hotel, paint was pealing off the walls and the overall feeling was "dingy" and dark. The bathrooms felt dirty because it was not being maintained. After staying for one night only we checked out and found a much better hotel, in the same price range. The hotel staff were extremely unprofessional, giggling and laughing out loud during check-in and having so many personal conversations that it felt like we were invisible.

Plenty of better options available in Venice in the same price range. The location of this hotel next to the main water way is good, but that is the only thing that is good about it.

Although it looked fine from the outside, the lobby smells like mildew and just plain...dingy. The breakfast is not very good. The rooms were very plain, but OK. I would say they could use some cleaning on the ceiling. There were cobwebs. Just alright, but not horrible. If you're just wanting a decent place to sleep, this will be fine.
