Nice but needs improvements
This is a nice hotel but needs much updating. The staff is very friendly and rooms are cleaned every day and beds were comfortable but bathroom is extremely small and room needed a lot of updates. TV for the room was the size of a small laptop computer!! Not much time spent in room but it would be nicer if it was up to date.

8/10 Very good

Great location, helpful staff - ok rooms.
It's a bit of an odd place - the reception area is beautiful and very grand. The tables along the canal for a drink were very inviting. Our room however was in a building a few doors down. The stairway, which seemed to be shared among other premises was being renovated so pretty messy. We were taken up to our room which was through a security door that was almost impossible to open. The room was a fair size, for Venice. It had the third bed made up for us. The sofa bed was pretty comfy - the only issue was it was right next to a square radiator. They had put sofa cushions along the sharp edge but these had stains on - I didn't really want our little one snuggling those either! The main bed, made up of two singles were very soft - not much mattress support. We were a bit worried they would be too uncomfortable to sleep but were actually ok - especially just for one night after a long day walking around Venice. The bathroom was outside of the bedroom and actually a couple of doors down from our room. We thought we'd paid extra for a bathroom inside the room-but they couldn't find the info on the booking. It was very small. The plugs in the room weren't the standard EU plugs we'd have in other hotels in Italy but the thinner Italian pins -the receptionist kindly lent us his charger so we could get enough battery to reload maps! They then allowed us to charge one mobile behind the desk. The ok breakfast was inside, shame not to use the canal tables. The location was great!

8/10 Very good

We had an amazing stay in Venice. However, we were out after breakfast and back at our room late at night for a rest. The room is uncomfortable as the aircon is not enough to cool the room. Not a lot of selection for breakfast. The plus side is that it is a good location to travel to the city. The waterbus is just around the corner. Very good location and a lot of places to see around the area in Dorsoduro. The staff are friendly, too.

2/10 Poor

No option for early check in for overseas travelers and returned home only to break out in itchy red bumps on my arms and legs that were diagnosed by my GP and dermatologist as bed bug bites! Very unpleasant and NO response from the hotel when I informed them of the situation. I gave them a week to at least acknowledge my message. Do not stay at Hotel Messner.
