6/10 Good

I have limited qualms with the locations or venue itself, but the idea that we cannot return post-0030, pre-0700 each night is absolutely absurd. Put a code on the door. With all of the shows and opportunities Venice presents, requiring people to come back to their apartment at some time is archaic. The sun doesn’t set until 10PM in the summer.

Really nice place, super close to the bus station which was helpful. Check-in was very easy, elevator was broken when I was there but normally there is one. Terrace was the best part, though, nice view over Venice, great place to have breakfast, a little cooler than the rooms which were fine but didn't have AC. Would definitely stay again!

Noise from the road.
Big windows are great but due to the noise from vehicles passing by below and the road being copperstones, it was very nosiy hence my roommates closed the windows and it can be bad as there are 6 of us in the room ! Location is good.

6/10 Good

It was the cheapest hotel I found in Venice. They lock the doors from midnight to 7:00 am. Our flight got delayed and we arrived at the airport after midnight, we called and the receptionist said she wouldn’t open the door until 7:00 am so we had to sleep at the airport because all the hotels were sold out For 2 days it was ok but more than that it would be bad. The location is good , close to the station and walking distance to attractions. There is no ac so it was uncomfortable to sleep and the beds were not good.
