Hotel Alcyone, VenicePosted Nov 2, 2017
Small hotel in great location for all the main areas of interest in Venice. The hotel itself is somewhat dated and requires upgrades in several areas. These include in relation to the room we had of changing the mattress as it was more than past it’s best making for a slightly uncomfortable sleep. Also the shower cubicle requires maintenance to stop it leaking onto the floor of the bathroom that was not big enough to swing a cat in. The room itself was a bit disappointing as it was much smaller than anticipated with just enough room either side of the bed to walk round. Furthermore on opening the room door it was no more than 3/4 steps until reaching the bed itself. I realise space is off a premium in Venice, but felt a little like a sardine packed into a tin hotel room wise. However some of these issues were made up for by the cleanliness of the room and hotel along with the friendly and help staff working there. So if you wish a hotel in a great location close to St Marks Square and Rialto Bridge and don’t mind having a hotel room that is compact then this is the hotel for you.

VenicePosted Oct 18, 2017 on Hotels
Hotel was reasonably priced in what is an expensive place to eat and drink. That said, wow, Venice is one of these must see places. Hotel was decent for our 2 night stay. Staff were friendly, room was small and buffet breakfast ok.

Good location, tiny rooms with uncomfortable bedsPosted Oct 9, 2017
Good location and polite staff. Disappointed with the size of the room. Claustrophobic rooms and ensuite. Could feel the bed springs at night. Wifi only available in corridors and no ironing facilities was a let down. Free breakfast was good.

Budget hotel in good location in VenicePosted Oct 7, 2017
Room very compact but clean. Fresh towels daily. Breakfast fine and staff friendly. 24 hour front desk meant that our delayed 2am arrival was ok and still welcoming. Easy to find position. Near to the Rialto and therefore, easy transport to airport and Grand Canal water buses. Steep stairs and no lift. Wifi only in the reception area but it did at least work fine. Sun terrace totally out of action. All in all value for money. As a base it was fine and we had a wonderful stay in Venice.

The worst hotel I've ever stayed inPosted Oct 2, 2017
There are only 2 positive aspects of the hotel; location and breakfast provided in the morning. Other than that, horrible! I was terrified when I saw the blanket on the bed. It looked so old and tattered. Then TV was not working and lots of dust all around the cables. Holes in the walls, broken chair...

Pros: Friendly staff
Location: Great location, less than 5 minutes walk from Rialto in one direction and St Marks Square the other direction.
I requested a room on first floor and got it no problem. Rooms are a bit small but comfortable and clean. Staff were very helpful at reception and in the breakfast room.

No WiFi in the room was a big disadvantage and the upstairs area was closed and didn't open during the fireworks display during the best able (3rd weekend in July) which was very disappointing apparently no one had a key. Good location and value for money.
