TravelPod Member ReviewsAlloggi Agli Artisti Venice
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.

... the price about doubles if you sit down. That was lunch.
Walked to the ponte deglie scalzi which wasn't as spectacular as the Rialto, then to the tre ponti, again poor cousins to the other bridges I have seen. Just meandered my way back and found myself at the end of the street i had been living in and bumped into Peter.
Had a Gelato for arvo tea.
Walked towards the Peggy Guggenheim Museum, which has some nice looking, ...
... course I'm on my last few train rides of this trip and every single train is late. From Venezia back to Munich I have to take three different trains and not only were they all late, my second train completely stopped and everyone had to finish the route by bus. I had to be in Trento, Italy by 11:59 in order to make it to my last connecting train to Munich. Thankfully, even though my bus arrived at 11:55, the last train was late by 5 minutes so I had plenty of time to make it ...
... historic site was, our second stop really made the tour. The Mercouri Estate Winery has a 150 year history producing wine, olive oil and , in old times, currants. It has a beautiful setting and an amazing collection of pets (dogs, cats, packs and horses) as well as tools, photos and equipment collected during its history. After a tour, we enjoyed a testing of white and red wine as ...
... place, was I told that it would not be the lady with whom I dealt online, Elenora, but rather that it would someone else completely called Fabio at the B&B. I never saw her in fact - she is Fabio's wife, I discovered, but they work at different B&Bs.
Once I'd paid the bill, we played some cards before heading off for our 11:35am "Secret Passages" tour of the Doge's Palace. This took us to lots of the secret rooms that the public don't usually get ...
... canals, over bridges over canals... and we ate, ate, ate... its SOOOO WONDERFUL HERE!!! Holly told you that we went on a gondola ride last night, but she failed to mention what a spectacular experience it was! We started on our 35min ride at dusk and it was the perfect time to float along the canals. The temperature, sounds, and sights seemed staged - so perfect that I felt like we were on a ride ...
