The best feature of this hotel is it's location. It's located about 50 yards away from the main Venice train station and a main boat terminal. The room was nice, the staff was friendly, and I was able to get plenty of rest after long days of sightseeing. If there is a downside, it's that there is no elevator so be sure to book a room on a lower floor.

Possibly the best hotel deal in Venice!
After reading the negative comments about the Agli Artisti in Venice on Tripadvisor, I thought about re-booking somewhere else. I'm really glad I didn't: we received good, friendly service, air conditioning, and a clean comfortable room (excellent bed!) right near the Santa Lucia train station and the Ferrovia vaporetto stop...for 60 Euro per night. Our room was to have a shared bathroom, but we were given a private bathroom (across the hall) for the same price. We were told that since they opened their annex building, where all the rooms have private bathrooms, they are basically able to give every room a bathroom. The decor is a little dated and there is no elevator (we were on the 3rd floor) but I would certainly stay there again in the future. The hotel is in the Cannaregio district of Venice - much less crowded and quieter than the districts nearer to St. Marks square. Also, there's a really good Chinese restaurant almost beside the hotel, if you're getting tired of Italian food! We walked to St. Marks square from our hotel in about 30 minutes, winding our way through the warren of calles and canals - it was wonderful! The 24-hour vaporetto pass is a smart idea (10.50 Euro for unlimited travel). We rode all around Venice and the outlying islands. My 13-year old son was really thrilled with the city - and a big part of our pleasant experience was the Agli Artisti hotel.
Not the Venetian but did not pay to expect that
I was very happy with the patience of the person whom I communicated with prior to our arrival and also upon arrival in Venice. They were both helpful and understanding of the needs of our very large group of 17 people. We had breakfast included in our rate and ate at a nearby hotel for the three mornings. The food was good and plentiful.
Although we all shared bathrooms, we in fact had no problems. Baths on both floors were clean and always supplied with plenty of toilet paper.
This is not a 4 or 5 star hotel and for the price we paid, we indeed got a very good, clean and quiet place to sleep.
Thanks from a group of 15 students and 2 teachers.
Possibly the crappest hotel in Venice?
Our stay at this hotel, was uncomfortable and overpriced. We had booked a quaint B&B for three nights (absolutly cool - its called ca corte) but had wanted something abit special for the last night and had booked in anticipation of a lovely room.
We were brought to our room, which in fairness was large and had a balcony. HOWEVER a bathroom had been ripped out in one corner (very shoddily done, you could easily tell) and the toilet pipe had been left in the room! We planned to ignore it, however as soon as someone flushed the toilet in the next door toilet a smell of poo and sewage flooded the room.
The management tried to blame this on a new cooling system, but it was obviously not the case - the cooling system by the way was hanging from the ceiling and shoddily covered by a blanket which had been pinned to the ceiling!!
We were moved to a new room that was tiny, but we planned to make do since it was the last night! Unfortunatly the windows had been left open before we arrived and we were attacked by mosquitos all night, which made for an extremely painful journey home - and a horrid last night.
The decore for the entire building was bad and the bathrooms weren't very clean - all in all, overpriced for the experience!
Our Venice Stay
We went to Venice in August of 2004. The hotel was basic and suited our needs, as we were out most of the day and only came back to sleep. We did share bathrooms but everything was very clean. We enjoyed our stay very much. The only thing was it did not have a hanging sign over the door to make it easy to find. We found it it by number.

... were visiting with the dad. They were heading back home the next day and were trying to decide for sure what to do on their last day.
We got off at the port just before San Marco and we were ready to wander the walkways again and begin to think about lunch. As we turned up a street we saw a small restaurant with several gondoliers in it. That made us immediately think it must be local and it must be good. We just didn’t think the gondoliers would eat in ...

The funny thing is, we came up in the lift, so when we go out we think we are walking down six flights of stairs, (Steve took the lift before) The stairs only go down three levels, gosh we are confused. As long as we find the front door, and can find our hotel room, lets not think about the levels in the hotel !

Our first day at sea was so much fun. We got to play an adult version of musical chairs. You know the one where you race to the open lounge chair and throw your towel on it before anyone else gets there? Yeah, that’s the game. Jason and I have an advantage over most on the cruise since neither of us has had a hip or knee replaced. We’re ...

We leave the crowds of the Rialto area for the more tranquil environs of the San Polo District. These more "lived in" parts of Venice are serene and inviting. At the center of the district is Campo San Polo (San Polo Square), Venice's second largest square after Piazza San ...

And the GPS on my phone was an awesome tour guide, and saved us many a time from getting 100% lost. But my trusty device failed us in Venice, when I entered in the hotel name it took us on a 1.5km walk across the island in 30 degree heat with all our luggage, only for us to talk to the concierge of another hotel when ...
