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.
Location Room was extremely small and had ants shower stall was about one foot by one foot no tub
View from big windows to Canale Grande
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 was excellent and easy to find, as was the view and breakfast.
Clean hotel with good location on the canal. Small room with small bath. Could not turn around in the shower.
Only location was good. except location, everything was pretty bad.
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.
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.
Luxury hotel for a reasonable price. Extra services are expensive though. Nice location by canal and very quiet, but close to Vaporetto. Would have been nice with an airport shuttle service
We got upgraded to a truly palatial room.
Lovely hotel, beautiful room. We received excellent service at this hotel, I am not sure why others reviews are not complementary.
Very Luxury Hall Unacceptable the first room: ground floor, close to the cleaning room and baggage storage!!!! No five star treatment at all!!!!! Discounted rooms here are a fraud!!!!!!
Beautiful surroundings - decor, gardens, spaciousness. Our room was very small with insufficient drawers for 2 people. Bath plug leaked and was not adequately fixed during our stay, despite repeated complaints.
bar service never getting through to service people, old fascilities in room,bad food
They came and cleaned the from but they decided not to leave some toilet paper. They room rate is $506.00per night but they can't leave any toilet paper. Go figure.
It was absolutely amasing Too expensive and not really 5 star
Quiet location and nice garden Room not adequate for 5 star services poor
I liked the location although away from the tourist area. I also liked the boat that took you around. The staff were very friendly and professional The trip to the Murano factory which was to the most expensive area. The room was also extremely hot and could not be controlled
The only good thing about the hotel was the Building and its surroundings!! Have you seen the condition of theTVs??? Have you ever seen out of date old sets with fuzzy images in any luxury hotel? Or uncleared tables? Or Spider's web all around?
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.
Very helpful staff Charging up to €8.00 for internet access is excessive, given the cost of staying in this hotel.
Rooms, location Breakfast, very bad internet conection which was not free
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)
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.
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
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.
rooms excellent character drinks in bar too expensive
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 all round
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.
tæt på piazzala roma (ankomst) let at finde , god udsigt til canal grande. måske var værelset lidt for småt.
Et velfungerende hotel. Værelserne havde det, man kan forvente på et hotel, man kan finde overalt. alt fungerede tilfredsstillende. Dejlig morgenmadsfaciliteter lige ud til kanalen. Nej!
venlig personale dejleg hotel ingen foslag
God beliggenhed, venligt personale, dejligt stort værelse med udsigt til Canal Grande. Godt badeværelse.God valuta for pengene, men Venedigs hoteller er ikke billige. Morgenmaden var ikke helt i top.
Hotellet har en perfekt placering og en fantastisk morgenmadsrestaurant direkte ud i kanalen.
The location is very good (near the rail station) for us who needed to leave very early (6am) the last day. They gave us a bag with breakfast goods since breakfast started at 7am. A very good value for money for us (March 07), but the same hotel for June has doubled the price!! One of the 3 days there was no hot water in the whole Hotel, so we could not take a shower. However this was fixed during the day (it was Sunday).
Hotel located near the bus area (to get to the airport).Hotel located in a good area of Venise. The noise but I assume every area in Venise is "noisi"
There was easy access to shopping and transporation. Hotel staff was not very friendly or courteous. I expected a more luxirious environment, online advertisement of facility was misrepresented.
The breakfast was the only good thing about the Amadeus hotel, the staff were unhelpful, the room too small and dirty and the bathroom was so small as to almost be unusable Poor service - staff would not even come to room, air conditioning did not work, water would not drain from bath, bathroom and bedroom were dirty and too small
After a very bad first night at a hotel near Rialto bridge, we were very pleased to be welcome at Amadeus; we were allowed to check in before the normal check in time, which was extremely convenient for us as we had luggage.The personnel at the reception was very helpful and welcoming. If ever visiting Venice in the future I will certainly make a reservation a t Amadeus. Thanks and keep up the good work Nothing particularly
Comfortable elegant hotel. Very good breakfast. Nice garden. Room very quiet and spacious despite being in busy street in Venice. Being close to the station makes handling luggage and final dash for the train much easier. Nothing
comfortable quiet room
Excellent location. Room and bathroom were adequate for our needs. Breakfast was very good with a very good range of food on offer. Not a bad place to stay but as with most Italian hotels we stayed in, I wonder how they achieved a 4 star rating. A couple of dismissive and unhelpful front office staff. No restaurant. Couldn't get a cup of coffee at the bar unless we paid cash, ie. couldn't put it on the bill for the room. And just plain closed one night. We thought we might get a last minute ticket to the Opera but travelling, our clothes were crushed. Could we borrow an iron? No, fire regulations forbid it. OK, fair enough. Did they have an ironing room? No. Could they arrange to have our clothes pressed? No, it's Sunday, bring them down tomorrow? That'll be handy for the Opera tonight. Whole hotel was overheated and could not be cooled because "it was November and the air conditioning is turned off in October and heating turned on". Fortunately the windows opened, even if it was occasionally noisy.
I and my girlfriend had a wonderful stay with nice room setting, kind hotel staff, good location (very near to train station) etc etc.
I can't say enough about this hotel. Staff was exceptional, the hotel was gorgeous and all for a very affordable rate. Wouldn't change a thing!
This is a wonderful hotel. I had specifically asked for their room with the gorgeous red draped motif and they complied. The room was large and beautifully adorned. The staff definitely tries to be very helpful and everyone is friendly, but we got a lot of misinformation from Katarina (on restaurants and making phone calls). The hotel is about 15 minutes walk to the Rialto Bridge and about 30 minutes walk (give or take) to St. Marks Square. You can also easily take the Vaporetto (water bus) to both locations. We were very happy with this hotel and would stay there again! As stated above, Katarina tried to be helpful, but gave us wrong information on some restaurants and making long distance calls. Otherwise, the hotel is wonderful.
The reception staff was wonderful. They helped us find nice family friendly restaurants, made suggestions for day trips and evening events, and organized a reasonable transfer for us. The hotel was beautiful and truly exhibited the Venetian atmosphere. The best part--it was "off the beaten path" in a quiet area, but within close walking distance to the main attractions of the city.
The room decoration is quite pretty. The receptionist is quite helpful and passionate. As soon as we checked in, he offered all info we need.
Staff helpful. Room spacious for Europe. Room should have a chair where one can sit and read.
We booked this hotel based on the photos posted on the website as there was no review during time of booking. Hotel was very new, only 2 months old and the photos are indeed true. The room was covered with beautiful wallpaper and the bed was typical Venetician design. Room was not big but sufficient for two person and bedlinens were very smooth and comfortable. The staff were very helpful and gave lots of information on where to visit etc. My only complaint is that the bathroom was too cold, there's a draft of wind in the bathroom which makes it very cold during showering.
I stayed in Al Duca Di Venezia with my mother for two nights in mid-November. It's located right next to the Natural History museum and is very close to two public transit ferry stops. The room was absolutely beautiful - very unique and luxurious decor. On top of that, the staff were absolutely fantastic and extremely helpful about sightseeing, restaurant recommendations, and general information like train times, etc. Our favorite hotel during our week in Italy. Breakfast room was small and the breakfast itself was a little too basic - but really, not a problem.
I enjoyed everything , from the decoration to the location and the kindness of the staff. Everything was perfect.
New, modern hotel + well maintained, clean + good location + friendly & helpful staff - all of which are scarce in Venice. The room was a bit too small and the elevator stopped on the 2nd floor, so we had to climb one floor. All in all, it was a small price to pay for such a nice hotel.
The location was as reported, so convenient to the train station. Truly a 5-8 minute walk. We dealt with Marie Aurora during our visit and she couldn't have been more welcoming or gracious. She treated us like we were family. The room was lovely. European pillows are a little thin for us. Wish that we could have had one more pillow in the room.
Hotel employe were extremely helpful. Breakfast was delivered to our room. The coffee was great, served with warmed milk. One night we wanted pizza in our room. When we asked hotel employee where to get one, ordered it for us and brought it
Location Lack of maintenance of rooms
Fullfilled our familys needs pretty well, good location, room for 4, fair pricing. Noisy street in front of the room, but the discomport of some noise was well balanced with the deeep sleep caused by good busy program of the stay in Venice.
Lovely staff, beautiful rooms, great A/C
The hotel staff was very nice and helpful, the hotel itself is a beautyful venetian palazzo and the rooms were absolutely clean.
Location is easy to find, not far from railway station.You can leave baggage at the hotel before catching night train. The heater didn't work well. The fruit and vegetable shop is just front of the hotel, so they make noisy in very early morning.
location, location, location no WIFI, that would have made it better, so we can look up things to do etc. Damn we are so spoiled by always having internet acces
Hotel Arcadia is located about five minutes from the St. Lucia train stop on Venice, and it was great not to have to haul our backpacks across the island. There were plenty of people walking heavy luggage all over the place, and we were glad not to be those people. The hotel gives you a card and a key. The key is for your room and the card allows you to get into the facility 24/7 which is nice if you want to take a late stroll around Venice. The room amenities were minimal, but provided us with everything we needed. The shower was hot, the room was very clean and the staff was polite, helpful and spoke great English. The breakfast room is beautiful and the breakfast was delightful with crossaints and coffee. It was neat to have a room that overlooked the main street so we could watch the vendors and people. The negative to that was that we could hear the vendors setting up their fruit stands at about 7am every morning. And while the location is nice to get to the train station, it can be a far walk to many of the main attractions, such as St. Mark's square. However, I would still argue that this was a great value.
Location and easy access from rail station. Great cappuccino for breakfast.The breakfast lady a real gem.
The location. Breakfast. No aircondition. It was no possible to sleep at night or just being in the room. Do not recommend at summer!!!!!
good experience, at the heart of the city breakfast good especially croissant
Good location fom station, staffs were very kind. Breakfast was fairly good. Satisfactory considering most of the buildings are very old in Venezia. No free WiFi in the room
Helpful advise from staff and very friendly. Fresh towels daily.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Quiet neighborhood.
We had a wonderful time. The staff were extremely friendly and the room was quite comfortable. Good breakfast and quiet location.
The staff and location are fantastic. A nice quiet part of town away from the tourist madness but still close enough to the attractions. Great restaurants nearby and a major ferry stop just across the canal. The hotel is a bit worn and tired on the inside and very basic when it comes to facilities. The breakfast was not good apart from the fresh coffee and melon.
It was extremely clean, basic but more than adequate for a few days. I also liked that there was a safe in the room. Apart from the bed there was nowhere to sit in comfort. It could be quite noisy first thing in the morning.
Nice view to the cannal That bathroom for economic room is outside of room. But is wasn't that bad because it was next to it.
The staff very most helpful and obliging. Honestly, it'd be hard to fault the service and amenities.
Close proximity to water and railroad station No elevator for luggage. Breakfast does not start till 7:30am.
quiet location, close to Piazzale Roma, on the Cannaregio canel and close to a vaporetto stop,clean and comfortable, private bathroom and shower, breakfast room and outdoor patios no elevator
Loved this hotel, it's simple and basic - but rooms were immaculate (bathrooms too), location convenient - right on the canal without in the hustle and bustle of St Marcos Square (just under a 10 minute walk, but it's a beautiful walk through lovely other parts of Venice). Staff were very friendly and helpful. Would recommend to friends and stay there again.
