Our room was very comfortable and spacious overlooking the Grand Canal. The divan for our third adult was not as big as a regular single bed size.
great location, good service hotel look great until you get to the room. bathroom needs to update.
Hotel is situated near the railway station, comfortable, good breakfast.
The breakfast buffet was good. This hotel was the worst experience in our entire trip to Europe. The staff made us book an extra room because they said there was no way they could bring in an extra bed for my son because it was against "Italian law" to have 5 people in a room. We stayed in other hotels in Italy and never had these problems.
As they sit on a good location, they do not bother looking afer guests . They should at least be friendly
The room are very comfort. I got the free upgrade to the canal view room that make me so surprise and enjoy. Breakfast are good too. Location are find. Just the reception can be better, because the way they talk is not so friendly.
Breakfast was very good. The internet did not work in the room.
Excellent hotel in a good location. Very good breakfast.
We were fortunate to have our window 'overlook the canal(had requested it). Great view, great breakfast
Location was excellent - close to train, bus depot and vaporetta station. Room was comfortable and very clean. Good value for money. Some staff were excellent, others acceptable.
the comfort and the stuff are very nice and good breakfast...
The reception staff were fantastic.
The hotel staff were wonderful-extremely friendly-they treated us like we were at a five star hotel-they took our bags to our rooms and any time we needed anything they brought it to our room immediately, I Love this hotel.The Breakfast was super! The location is just a quick 2 minute walk from the train station. they even told us a back way to get there so that we didn't have to use the stairs in front of the train station. I was travelling with my freinds and my mother and we had a blast. Mirko at the front desk was so great-we all want to go back to just to see him-well and to shop too! You must stay at this hotel! The newer the rooms-the supperior ones-are beautiful-wood beams on the celing and a jucuzzi tub . super hotel They do not have elevators-I was travelling with my mother who could not go up and down stairs , But they made wonderful accommodation for us and gave us a bigger room on the bottom floor.
Friendly and helpful staff, somewhere to leave your bags before and after your stay, small courtyard garden, excellent location close to the station, sound of the nearby monastery bells, reasonably priced drinks in the very comfortable bar No
Staff at front desk very helpful and friendly the breakfasts! Hard-boiled eggs were soft-boiled and surprised many guests when they cracked them open. Croissants were burnt, coffee was put out in glass pitcher, not heated and tables were cleaned very slowly, a real disappointment.
Hotel Abbazia is just two minutes away from Santa Lucia train station, and the Ferrovia vaporetto (water bus) station is even closer. You can catch a ride on the vaporetto from there any time day or night to San Marco or anywhere you want, or you can just cross the "Ponte dei Scalzi" on Canal Grande and walk your way from there. The hotel entrance is tucked away inside a small alley, and you might have to ask for directions if it is your first time in Venice, but it should be easy for you to find. As for the hotel itself, it is really a charming hotel, and the staff, lead by the manager Alvise Vianello, are the friendliest and most charming staff you would ever counter. The are welcoming and accommodating that you'd feel right at home when you are there. The room itself was very nice and well maintained, it is of a good size, and has all the needed amenities. The bathroom was also clean and of a good size. The hotel also has Wi-Fi and it's free of charge for the guests. The breakfast was basic, and actually was of the widest varieties that we've experienced in our 6 cities Italian adventure, but again, breakfast is not exactly Italy's biggest export. We loved our stay in the hotel Abbazia, and we loved the kindness of its staff, and if we ever went back to Venice, I'd make sure to stay there again. The shower handler was broken, but it was not really an issue for me.
Friendly staff, we stayed there to be near the bus / train station for an early start. Clean comfortable rooms.
The building archetecture suggested it had been a part of a monastery joined to a large church nextdoor with lots of bells. The bells do ring. The hotel has a beautiful courtyard that our room looked onto. The room was clean and nicely furnished. Your information should note the hotel does not have an elevator. Hotel staff carries luggage to your room, however.
staff were helpful and efficent, the location was excellant to train station etc. breakfast room could be cleaner,bedroom needed to be dusted more attention to detail required
We were promised that the bathroom door would be fixed and this never happened which was dissappointing.
The hotel is perfectly located (close to the train station and to the bus station, making it convenient for a city-trip) and on walking distance from the city-centre. Staff is quite helpful and very nice.
convenient location; beautiful decoration and luxurious furniture in the room; good service of hotel staff; internet service. complicated structure of the building (hard to find room)
Location was great, with our room having a view directly over a side canal just off the Grand Canal. Took a gondola ride from our doorstep. Breakfast service was good, and WiFi reliable. Will definitely consider staying here again if we return to Venice. Tip: Although you can book a shared water taxi on a small boat that will let you off right at the hotel doorstep, we found that to be cramped, hot, and had a indeterminate wait time. As long as you don't have too much luggage, I recommend just taking the Alilaguna Blue line ferry to the Nove stop. From there, it's only about a 10 minute walk, with only 3 or 4 bridges (with stairs) to cross to make it to the hotel.
The staff was freindly, location was good
The location No Complaints All very good
Location is brilliant. Very Venetian and slightly quirky but with very modern bathrooms. We missed breakfast because we had to leave for the airport at 7am and it didn't start until 8am.
perfect location! nice breakfast
The decor of room & hotel in general, especially the breakfast room. Excellent location. Polite staff. We stayed in the Falier Suite and thought it was a little small. We've stayed in bigger junior suites. Bathroom was surprisingly small. It was unbelievably noisy very early in the morning. We had a late departure from Venice and had to leave our luggage at the hotel. Any other hotel I've ever stayed in has had a luggage room but we had to leave ours outside the reception.
The hotel was in a lovely location which was also one of the few areas not to flood during high tide. A very pretty hotel with lovely quality furnishings. Good for a romantic getaway. The staff although helpful, put others before us even if we were first all the time, seemed to be dependant upon which languages were being spoken.
Very pleasant staff. We were a family of 4 and had a duplex room which was great.(room 105) There are no communal areas, just a small reception amd a small breakfast room. Nu loung/seating areas.
The breakfast, the location and athmosphere of the hotel was excelent. The staff was also very friendly. We asked for a bottle opener, and got it right away.The takeaway breakfast we asked for was pour, but it was prepared for 5 am. The bathroom is elegant, nice double shower. No view from the room, even if it was promised. But on the other hand, the hotel is in a good, nice location (easy to find it), and the room is very quite. (Except the noise of a contruction in the morning)
The breakfast was wonderful. The ambiance and decor was what I had imagined of Venice. Great location.
Only location was good. except location, everything was pretty bad.
The location, close to train station and to ferry service. The good breakfast. The spacious room (a standard room) and the bathroom with a window. With reservation of "Booking.com" is not possible to dinner with price of € 25,00 as is written in the Confirmation. Please cancel it from your Booking.com confirmation because the menu of the hotel restaurant is more expensive!
The location. The staff, room quality and cleanliness.
When a staff brought my luggage up, I gave 1 euro, it may not be much, but I researched that you do not tip in Europe in general. Staff made sarcastic comments which was very rude. I will not go back here for this one guy, I was ripped off quite a bit in europe, so research and be firm to say "NO" when they ask for more money or tip.
Location Room was extremely small and had ants shower stall was about one foot by one foot no tub
Great location, 600 feet from train station . Old building ( this is a very old city ) but makes you feel as though you have gone back in time . Great food , service excellent. Front desk guys can be a little stuffy , but they upgraded us at no charge . Beds could be queen or king , the 2 single beds are a joke . Pushing them together is pointless. A romantic hotel in one of the best cities on earth , should have bigger beds .
The location and dinning staff. The front desk staff was arrogant and unresponsive, bad attitude......
Super busy location. Very handy for our early train departure on our last day. Handy to all of the water taxis too Nice breakfast in a pleasant dining room. Our double room was very large, with a high-ceiling and large bathroom with tub/shower.
The location was excellent and easy to find, as was the view and breakfast.
The location is near the train and bus stations and also near the vaporetto. It's a busy area, but convenient. The hotel offers free appetizers in the afternoon and great free breakfast in the morning. The single room was tiny, but it had all I needed. If you don't plan to stay in your room much, it's ideal.
View from big windows to Canale Grande
Clean hotel with good location on the canal. Small room with small bath. Could not turn around in the shower.
Closeness to train- and bus stations, quiet room, good breakfast, friendly staff Very small room, poor view from the window (a wall a couple of meters away)
near train station, beautiful room and bathroom, friendly staff
Familiar staff. Warm croissants served at breakfast. Very convenience, a few steps from the railway station. Not exchanged used towels on the 2nd day.
It was very close to the train station and accessible to major attractions The room was very dirty and old
The staff were *excellent*. Friendly, helpful, courteous. Also, the breakfasts were wonderful - a real continental breakfast with excellent coffee, capuchino, pastry, fruit... Location is very convenient - a 2 minute walk from the train station, a 5 minute walk from where the airport buses arrive, and a minute from the nearest Vaporetti (water bus) stop. Be aware that the nearby church bells ring at 7:15 AM and 8:15 AM every weekday morning; great if you want to wake up early, but hard to sleep through...
Close to train station, easy walk to shops,canal, able to walk or catch water taxi to St Marco's Sq.Breakfast pleasant & fsmell of freshly brewed coffee inviting first thing in the morning. Staff couln't have been kinder or more helpful..with maps, directions, timetables, advise. Rooms small/cosy but decorated with rich Venician style & colours
The staff was very friendly and helpful. We loved the location. Also very quiet area at night. The hair dryer should be updated - it didn't work properly. The bed was too firm.
Very friendly staff, gracious owner, excellent breakfast No elevator, no lobby
Great people. Very helpful & friendly. Once we found it, it was very convenient for transport sights etc.Room was decorated well and everything worked. It would have been nice to be able make a coffee on wakling up. In common with many hotels in Europe, there is no tea or coffee facilities in the room.
location, staff (very helpful and friendly), cleanliness bathroom was small and awkward, some street noise at night
Everything surpassed my expectations. The staff was incredibly nice and helpful. I would definitely come back!! I highly recommend it!!! Bathroom /shower a little bit small.
Situated in a more residential part of town - but only 10 - 15 min walk to all main attractions this hotel was awesome. Staff were ridiculously friendly. Place is like a 5 star hotel. Completely renovated - all high tech switches in the rooms. Extremely cheap for what you get. Will be only place I stay in Venice from now on! Nothing
Rooms, location Breakfast, very bad internet conection which was not free
Nice room, quite large for Vinece, clean and comfortable. we spent our hooneymoon there - everything was fine. we loved the district and osteria near the hotel the hotel blocked the deposit on the credit card in 3 days before our arrival.
Excellent all round
Very helpful staff Charging up to €8.00 for internet access is excessive, given the cost of staying in this hotel.
staff kindness, excellent position, large, comfortable and very well equipped room, large bathroom, good continental breakfast included in price. a bit difficult to read being in bed (bed light power)
rooms excellent character drinks in bar too expensive
Friendly staff, nice & cosy room, close enough to most of the interesting locations and happenings (walking distance), but far enough from it for a good night sleep.
Everything was perfect. The staff was very professional, the room was incredibly comfortable and had a consistent oriental style; the breakfast was basic but of the greatest quality. The hotel is a bit far from the center of Venice, but this is good if you like a bit of peace and quiet.
Excellent service by very professional staff who were extremely helpful with all our needs. We had special religious needs on Saturday and the staff was very cooperative. The atmosphere was very special in this boutique hotel in Cannareggio area of Venice on the canal. Absolutely peaceful and serene atmosphere that made us forget all everyday concerns. We highly recommend staying here and we will definitely stay here again this summer when we return to visit Venice.
My husband and I recently stayed at the Ai More d'Oriente for 4 days and 3 nights in December 2014 and loved it. Here's what we loved: LOCATION - The location was perfect... close, easy access to the vaperatto's (Venice's water taxis) as well as a short walk to the city center. STAFF - The staff was super helpful, friendly and accommodating. AMENITIES - Free wi-fi and breakfast. ROOMS - Comfortable, clean, nicely decorated rooms. The rooms are small but 1. that's to be expected in Europe and 2. We didn't come to Italy to stay in the room so the size wasn't an issue for us. Overall we felt we got an excellent value for what we paid. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others. The breakfast was a typical European breakfast. The coffee was excellent but the food options were not to our liking. However, it I free so not a big deal for us.
When u look at this hotel from outside u see it like one of venice typical building but from inside its very trendy and luxurious. The decor is amazing. The room we had was very comfortable and spacy and the bathroom was very spacy and clean. Plus the hotel is close to guglie station waterbus to airoport. The morning breaskfast was superbe :) The most thing i didnt like was the internet service. It was very slow!! However it wasnt that big problem coz we didnt use the internet a lot.
Location No courtesy. Very uptight Won't give an extra map next day.
During heavy rains and rising waters in St. Mark's Square we relocated here from our hotel so we wouldn't have to drag our bags through the water to make an early am train. We did not expect luxury or pampering. The price was right and the proximity to the sl train station and vaporetto was perfect. The staff treated us cordially and fair. There is no elevator. If you have trouble with steep stairs, this is not the hotel for you. The lobby area (where the internet reception is best) is positively filthy. No room safe.
Despite the room was single, it was large and cosy. The breakfast was not so rich, but fresh and delicious.Location-excellent. The problem with mosquitos.
It had a perfect location to the station/bus station and also the centre of Venice. Room was very big, but shower was small.. the bathroom was abit small - but it was good..
Great location, price and staff. Ideal for first-time solo travelers. N/A.
excellent position, very next to the train station. (in Venice this has the greatest value!) I would have appreciate to have little bit warmer bed covers, due to the autumn temperature.
value for money
The hotel was central located, quiet and clean. Unfortunately this is not a four and a half star hotel!!! by neither standards! the rooms are not up to that standard, breakfast is not either, internet is poorly working; only the price is 4.5 stars; also using the pool in the garden is possible only for 5 euros per day...
it has good location, you can reach by water bus or taxi from airport, rooms are very small.... rooms very small and should have more vegetarian food options ....
The Hotel is very central and yet quiet.We enjoyed the breakfasts in the courtyard. We believe that the room we were in, which was on two levels, needs the stairs between the levels repairing. They creaked extremely loudly whenever we went up or down them.
Everything was clean and the service very good. The bed was upstairs, bathroom first floor; this is not very convenient specially durind the night.
Neighborhood and traditional Venetian decor and ambience. Access with luggage difficult and somewhat expensive.
your wellcoming and friendly staff in general and Leila your receptionist in particular
The internal breakfast area is wonderfull The rooms we´ve got were to small
The staff is fabulous - professional; gracious; welcoming; informative. The rooms are decorated in the true Venetian style. The location is charming - a quiet neighborhood; easy access to 2 vaporetto stops; easy to walk to most locations; and the excellent Osteria Giorgione restaurant [we ate there 3 out of our 4 night stay! We will likely be staying at the hotel, for all return visits.
Complimentary iced tea every afternoon for guests. Location very convenient to Rialto. No free wifi. Front desk staff were sometimes unfriendly.
Breakfast was great and the location was very good. The room was very small and the bathroom didn't have a shower curtain.
The Hotel Giorgione was in a fantastic location to see the major sights in Venice. We arrived by water taxi - it may not be so convenient if you intend to arrive by public water bus. Breakfast was lovely - served in a lovely quiet and pretty courtyard. All in al,l we had a superb long weekend stay in Venice.
Most welcoming, accommodating and helpful staff Beautiful rooms and decoration Enclosed garden with breakfast served outside and impressive waterfront access Air conditioning in bedroom room not really powerful enough to cope with the extreme temperatures in July August
The hotel is quite exceptional, combining grandeur and intimacy; wonderful architecture, exceptional breakfast, very quiet and spacious rooms and an excellent location off the tourist track.
The staff were fantastic, very helpfull and friendly. The room was exactly what we expected. Will return there again on our next trip to Venice.
The friendly service and comfortable surroundings.
Just great Price
Service straight from the heart by very attentive staff. Beautifully restored 16th century palace with lots of character Nothing at all
Everything, beautiful building, helpful staff, great breakfast. No.
Tha Palazzo is simply breathtaking, it truly is a palace. Very historical yet comfortable and inviting. Silvana met us as our water taxis landed with a huge welcoming smile and kindness. She is truly what made our stay so sensational... she is the essence of the Palazzo, we were wondering if she ever left, she was always available. That we eventually had to leave.
Beautiful building in excellent, quiet location. Tasteful rooms. Friendly, felt like being a personal guest. Lovely courtyard garden.
The building and the location are fantastic, one of the nicest buildings I have stayed in.
the junior suite was very tasteful with nice size bed and room on arrival we met someone at reception who was not very pleasant but the next morning we did not have to deal with him and the rest of the staff were lovely throughout out stay. The hotel does not have a great bar facility but the setting and the food in the restaurant on the canal was excellant and matched its 5 star rating. I would stay again as it is only getting on its feet with opened only four months.
Very easy access to transport both public and private
Beautiful building, location, and room Staff did not have a very helpful or accommodating attitude, we were surprised to find out, and we had several experiences of not feeling the service was good with front desk staff particularly. Orange juice at breakfast not included and charged 14 euros a day for 2 fresh orange juices.
The hotel is beautifull, and clean A bar to have a drink would be nice. The hotel is a little far away from St Marco.
Exceptionally beautiful building, gracious and low-key atmosphere of tasteful opulence.
The hotel is beautiful, like staying in a museum. Having breakfast surrounded by frescoes was a unique experience I asked the front desk to help me book a train to Florence the night prior to checking out. They told me that they could not do this for me, but not to worry as the trains don't sell out anyway. Unfortunately when we showed up at the train station, the train to Florence we needed was sold out ruining our plans for the afternoon. I stayed in two other hotels on this stay in Italy and in both the staff booked train tickets for me
Service was good Cost of mini bar and breakfast was not freshly cooked
i liked the design of the hotel the intenal and the external and the servies of the hotel its one of the best hotels
Imaginative use of an old building, with beautiful public spaces and spacious bedrooms, first-rate facilities
Excellent location and superb view on Grand canal from my room. The room number was 103. I would really recommend it. Breakfast was rather modest. Also as some reviewer already said the hotel lacks atmosphere. It is all too silent. Interente is bloody expensive but one can use Venice connected for EUR 5 a day.
The facilities were beautiful. I was disappointed that we could not receive a late check out after my running of the Venice Marathon. I was told that at 1pm there were no rooms availible for a quick shower.
It is a clean place, adequate room, nice shower, good location, good breakfast. The place was very difficult to find, no hotel sign.
The staff was very polite. The room was quite good and clean. The bathroom was also very comfortable. The location is also quite good. In general should stay that this hotel is a good value for money. The problem was that the receptionist was speaking only very poor english and some members of the staff didn't speak english at all, so it was really hard to communicate with them sometimes. The breakfast could be better and isn't good the fact that is served strictly between 08.30-10.30.
The room was amazing, had really nice features like the view over the rooftops and wooden beams,was nice and cosy. The staff were very friendly and helpful
i liked the mood of the rooms, the clenliness and the location.
great location,very convenient and easy to find.the rooms where comfortable clean and spacy enough.the staff was very friendly and helpful poor breakfast and really noisy breakfast room starting from 8 in the morning it wakes you up!!
Peaceful and well serviced Lack of hot drink making facilities in the rooms
Nice location in the ghetto of Venice Very expensive internet. Staff not always helpful or friendly. Rooms are very dark.
Very clean & spacious. Staff were all very friendly. Breakfast was excellent. Although a short walk to centre of Venice & St Mark's square, it was nice to be outside main tourist area - quieter, local restaurants excellent / cheaper, nice walk in to centre.
Very clean, brand new (renovation), super quiet, away from tourist hotspots. Very comfortable bed with a nice firm mattress. Separate toilet/bath. For its category the breakfast buffet could have offered a little more variety.
The location was very good,very clse to the vaporetto stop and all members of staff very helpful.
The hotel is a contemporary renovation of a very old building, it is very aesthetically pleasing. The bar was small but comfortable, staff very helpful. Ample breakfasts for ever hungry teenagers.
our stay was very nice. it was in a nice part of venice, quiet but close to all the action. the room was great and the staff were always so helpful in anything we needed. the food was great, and the rooms were clean and comfortable.
The location was perfect. Convenient for restaurants, bars etc but away from the the touristy busy areas near the Grand Canal.
Quiet location. Good price. No restaurant.
I did not like the fruit juice at breakfast - it was watery and tasted artificail.
위치는 아주 좋았습니다.역에서 아주 가까움. 아침에 근무하시는 분들은 아주 친절했으나 저녁에 근무하는 분은 아주 불친절했으며 손님이 들어와도 인사말 하나 없이 자기 전화통화만 계속하는 상태로 키 건내받았습니다. 유럽 호텔방들이 크지는 않지만 여기 제가 지낸 방 특히 작고 아주 갑갑하였습니다. 사진과 많이 다릅니다.
산타루치아 역이랑 가까워서 찾아가기 쉽고, 리알토다리,산마르코광장쪽으로 걷기에 그렇게 많이 멀지 않아 좋은 장소였습니다 :) 카운터에 계신 아저씨 한분이 정말 불친절했구요, 저희는 가족룸에서 머물렀었는데 냄새가 장난이 아니여서 혼났어요ㅜㅜ 더블침대로 하나는 괜찮은데 다른 하나는 허술하고, 이불도 안좋고 그랬어요.... 가격대비 좋진 않은거 같아요~숙소는 베네치아 본섬 안에 잡는 거 보다, 다리건너기 전에 밖에서 잡으시는 게 나을게 같네요 (차타고 가시는 경우에요 :)
Easy access and easy to find the hotel
the location is excellent; easy walking to everything this hotel is slightly shabby and rundown -
There was a very comfortable bed. There was not a good view of the city, but I didn't pay a lot so I didn't expect that.
Owner was exceptional in ensuring that our stay was good. Room was lovely & the location for us was fabulous.
The gentlaman at the reservation desk was always kind and helpful to me, I really thank him.
The location could not have been better and easy to find.
Proximity to all areas
It's location was Convenient for easy Access to shops, tourist sites and traansport links.The Hotel staff all spoke English and were veryhelpful and friendly The bathroom/toilet area was very cramped - very small- large people would have difficulty using the shower
The staff were very helpful and friendly Not having a lift was a bit annoying, especially with bags, but we knew this before we booked - we were up endless flights! Good excercise though!!!!
We could find the hotel's sign after across the bridge. The reception open 24hours and takes 10 mins walk to the main station, so we could get the train even early morning. There were a lot of shops and restaurants near the hotel. There were not the room on the ground floor and no elevator so we had to go up stairs with heavy luggages.The interior was very nice but the room and bathroom was small.
near the station. room was small. shower room was small, too. but tidy and neat. a bit over price i think. maybe in venice island that is why.
Easy to find and the location was superb
Proximity to the train station was great Top floor - no lift, rooms and bathroom very small
The staff is very helpful and polite and always very friendly with their guests..The hotel is also situated in a very good area just 10 minutes walk from the Piazalle Roma bus terminus and about 20 minutes walk from Piazza San Marco their is also the Fruit Market in front of the hotel with some very good fresh fruit especially the Passion fruit which is really a sweet treat.Apart from that their are a couple of good restaurants just across the road where you can have a Tourist menu for just €11 and the usual pizza corner shops which sell the best pizza i ever had. I will definetily use this hotel again if i will be visiting Venice again... The Toaster in the breakfast room is the only thing that annoyed me because it does not work properly it takes about 15 minutes to do a couple of toast apart from that everything was just fine.
