Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
We stayed in Messner palace for two nights. The room was nice, clean and had view of the canal.It was just above the restaurant but no noise or smells from it. The bed was comfortable however it was two beds connected to create a double bed instead of one big bed, that was not a problem though as it was comfortable and one could not really notice. The TV was massive which was absolutely fantastic and above the bed there was a massive mirror which was a nice touch. The rooms were in general small so as the bathrooms however for our short stay that was not a problem as we were mostly out and about exploring Venice. I noticed some spider combs on the ceiling which was annoying but in general the room was clean and satisfying. I was afraid about ticks as I had read the previous reviews but after I inspected the room thoroughly and also slept in it I found no traces and had no problems. Of course everyone's experience is different.. At the end of our stay we were charged an additional 18euros which is the city tax so be prepared! The advertised shuttle was not available neither was the advertised gondola ride... Faulse advertisement?

This property is the equivalent to the Econo lodge in the US....not a good comparison! No hot water in the morning, bad location, staff was in the rude side. Best thing that could happen with this hotel is....it sinks in the lagoon with the rest of Venice. Horrible nasty place.
