very nice apartment, small kitchen with the basics provided - packed croissants, coffee, cornflakes, 4 gasoline hot-plates, excellent location - just 5 minutes away from San Marco piazza. The sight from the window is relaxing - a small piazza with benches and a beautiful old building with high ancient doors and the area around is safe and quiet. The bathroom was extremely clean with provided soap inside and it was not a problem that we had to share it with one more room. RECOMMENDED

This property is great. The location is probably the best thing about it. A lot of Venice hotels or hostels are billed as being in Venice when really they are in Mestre, which is not walking distance. But S.M. Dreams is 5 mins from San Marco. Plus it's an apartment, so you have kitchen access. Our stay was clean, calm, convenient, and great value. Can't recommend highly enough!

Our stay there was just awful, like in prison, the room is poor and uncomfortable. The worst hostel we've ever seen. Very expensive. NEVER go there.

Room appeared to be clean on arrival, but bathroom was not cleaned from previous guests' stay when we arrived. Also instructions to check-in to other property had to be sent in a different e-mail, which was inconvenient (why not clarify better in the original confirmation?)

It is a shared bathroom which we clean each morning roughly at 11 am but when a guests takes a shower at 2 pm it wil be dirty again and if another guest arrives at 4 pm he could think thta we don't clean but this isn't true.

It is quite hard to find, but then if it's your first time in Venice then navigating in general is tricky! The room was very nice though, with an ensuite with a bath and shower. While it may be tricky to find it's location is actually very good. Only 5mins from St Marcs Square and the water buses. It says breakfast isn't included but there is a kitchen kitted out nicely with breakfast provisions and with shops and markets nearby you can easily sort yourself out a nice breakfast.

Perfect- I mean allthough there was no breakfast included they had bread, coffee tea and croissants in the kitchen! And the location is really cool next to this plaza and the church!

Great location, very clean, very quiet! The problem was the keys. While we were there, one guest broke a key trying to open the front door, and we never got the keys given us to work, but had to rely on a spare set we found in the kitchen. Even then, we were once locked out, but a neighbor let us in. The check-in staff charged us 20 euros more than our contract price. 1 bathroom for 7-8 guests could have been a problem, but wasn't for us. Aside from these issues, had a wonderful time!

Just a room in an apartment with a great location. Very poor breakfast. I didn't understand why there was a sign on the window of the bathroom ordering us to keep it open "ALLWAYS".
