Hotel is not far away from the train, it took us 15 minutes to find the place. The lady who helped us check in was very helpful and welcoming, provided a map+information on how to get to Venice via train/bus. She also provided a wifi card. The room was clean, nothing fancy, warm, beds aren't bad. Shower was warm 50% of the time. Wifi only worked by the door or in the lobby and only for two devices. Getting into Venice was easy on train. Good for a budget, decent place to sleep.

The double bed is in definite need of replacement, the shower was tiny. I'm 2m (6'7") and it was tough for me to shower correctly without bumping into one of the walls. Pretty clean though and the wifi is decent. Venice is expensive, so this was a decent option for the price. It's close to the train station too, which makes it convenient. Breakfast not included, which is a joke. Not much going on around the hotel either, super quiet area, although kinda run down looking.


Fantastic owners. Very nice place. Bed was comfortable, patio was nice, very clean place. The location feels really like you are part of the neighborhood. It is not in the Island of Venice, but very close by and transportation is great.


This is a great place to stay. It is a two star hotel at a very good price for its location (300m from the bus or train, in 20 min you are in Venice). The room was very comfortable with very new bathroom. Everything was cleaned and tidied daily. The lady in charge speaks english and is very helpful and kind. For a small price you can also have breakfast (reserving it the day before). Around the hotel it is quiet and residential, there are a few modest, restaurants and cafes.


Perfect location for the money. The train station was less than a 10 minute walk to get to Venice. The wifi was not working when we arrived, but the staff got it working quickly. The hotel was very clean and the room was large. Couldn't figure out how to work the a/c, but could have asked! We would stay here again!


This is a hotel. The woman that runs it is very pleasant and will explain everything you need to know very clearly. They clean the room everyday. The only problem we had was there were mosquitos in the room but that was probably a unique situation. All in all a good experience and it is easy to get into Venice from here (10 min).

Do not take bus 15 as it no longer use the route to get to the hotel. Instead (if u have loads of luggage and don't feel like walking), go on the city tram which is next to the train station and get off at the next stop. Look for the tram direction heading to Marghera. Its a no frills hotel with a clean bed and towels, good enough for a sleep and shower. Room is clean and they do change your towels daily. Didn't like the wet bathroom though, its small and doesn't come with a separate shower.


No family warmth for us, just all business. Not welcoming or friendly and the place had no life to it. Only for sleeping so we didn't care.


Lets just say, it's a hotel, not a hostel. It was very good for a hotel. But there was pretty much no atmosphere. And it was pretty expensive. Not really a place for a backpacker. If you are on vacation though it's quite good. If you are a traveller then no. It's close to the number 6 bus which takes you directly to Venice so location wise it's good too.
