ABSYMAL! the shuttle service doesn't run as frequently as advertised on the website, the staff are unhelpful especially during the evening. I was also charged an extra tax when i arrived, Hostelworld have kindly refunded this as it wasn't agreed to when i initially booked. One night the shuttle didn't arrive at drop off point for one hour had to argue with the receptionist who said i was lying and that i wasn't at the stop, WHY WOULD I LIE? the receptionist in the morning refunded the cost

After arriving I had to wait at least 15 minutes for staff to arrive at the desk. When she finally arrived she was very rude and cold. Its located at least 20-30 minutes outside the city center by bus. The wifi was a bad connection and expensive ( 3 euro for an hour). Room was not very clean. The decor is a little off putting. The bathroom was a little run down, mine had no hot water and the tile was cracked causing water to leak everywhere.


One staff member was unpleasant towards us the entire stay. The directions to the hotel were poor. The shuttle to Venice was oferred to us only once out of our 2-night stay. The room was not cleaned during our stay. There wasn't wifi in the room as oriniginally told in the hotel description.

The staff is really cold. If you arrive by train have them pick you up, but it will be €30 otherwise good luck finding the place. You're better off throwing a rock with your eyes closed and following the sound in order to find it. Wifi only works in the lobby, and the breakfast (not included) was stale, and not very fresh. I say it's in the middle of nowhere, because if you want to walk around at night it's pointless it's just houses. Stay elsewhere. Spend the extra $$ and go inside the city.


Arrival and greeting from Maria was brief, rude and she appeared disinterested. Other staff Tamara was lovely, very friendly and gave good advice and was willing to help us with questions. The room was clean and tidy. The hotel offers many shuttle services to the canal area for just 6 euro return.


The place was very clean It is far from Venice but Hotel's transport system by bus is very good, it takes only 15 min to get there! However, Wifi connection is really lousy, low and unstable signal


The owners do not care at all about you, the prices are too high for these conditions: too small rooms, dirty, furnishing with distgusting paintings on it (you can't sleep there with your kids), no chairs or anything like that on the balconies and so on! We left the hotel one night earlier, because it was so disgusting, they didn't even care that we checked out earlier........no reason to go there!

Internet facility was really poor. I was expecting more friendly and welcoming staff at the reception.


location is not good- about 30ish minutes into venice with a complicated bus journey- but their shuttle service was good. having read some awful reviews we were expecting the worst but were pleasantly surprised- it was clean and secure with air con but no working wifi- but a clean bed and shower is all we needed and what more can you expect from a hotel with hostel prices. as long as you arent expecting a 5* hotel you will be fine.


Although the hotel is slightly far from Venice, the hotel provides a wonderful shuttle service that makes traveling easy and stress-free.


Our original reservation had been cancelled and another one made. However, they made us pay for an extra day until we showed them documentation as having cancelled the first . Thy agreed to redeem one night's stay, but then ripped us off by charging for our breakfast which we had coming to us that morning. She took out $26.00 for three breakfasts. It took us 2 1/2 hours to find it. It was a very poor start to our vacation

Wifi and air con failed to work. Other than the bus driver (who was classic) staff we lippy and had attitude.


little bit rude attitude I think.. but may be they are effort their way.


This hostel/hotel is great, I paid for a private room with private bathroom, and it's still very reasonable. The staff are welcoming and helpful. The location is perfect, just a short drive to a very well priced car park, and then a 5 minute bus to Venice itself. There is also parking at the hotel and air con in the rooms. The freshly cooked eggs for breakfast were also very nice. I really liked it.

The hotel is far from Venice and the airports, but they have a shuttle service. The shuttle to town only runs at 9:30 am and 9pm, so be prepared to be exhausted, or make the complicated trek back via city bus. For $10 extra a day you can get breakfast, which is nothing special.The restaurant downstairs is a little dingy. I wandered into the washrooms there and they were filled with spiderwebs and the sinks didn't work. The rooms themselves are okay but walls are paper thin.


They charged us €4.90 each for a tourist tax which was not advertised. The shuttle bus is excellent and the driver is very friendly.
