    Hotel near the railway station

    Very pleasant hotel - rated 4 star and worth it. Room and bathroom very small for a single person but so well appointed and one is really only there to sleep and shower. Staff friendly and helpful.
    Hotel is near the railway station and at the beginning of the Grand Canal.
    Well recommended.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Amadeus Hotel Venice

    Just How I Imagined Italy

    from

    This was our first stop in Italy. When we arrived at the hotel they brought us up to our room and opened the window. The picture is the view from that window. It was just how I imagined Italy. The hotel was very charming, the staff was very attentive and this hotel was by far the best we had in Italy.

    A Fine Hotel

    from

    Our travel agent found the Amadeus hotel for our pre-cruise stay through a wholesaler, with a rate of 170Euros/night, including breakfast and dinner.

    It was easy enough to find, just a short, lively walk from the train station (we took a bus from the airport) and since it's right on a major street, we went straight to it.

    When we checked in, the clerk, who actually wasn't very friendly, told us that breakfast was included. Had I not looked over my documents thoroughly, I would have missed that dinner was also included. When I produced the voucher, he admitted that I was right.

    The sushi restaurant at the hotel didn't grab us, but we were also able to have our dinner at the Hotel Principe, a sister hotel, just across the street. Their dinners were delicious, and two courses were included. We paid for water, wine, and dessert - maybe about 20Euros - and that was it. The second night we wanted to branch out and try something else, but it was pouring rain, so we decided to take the freebie and stay dry. The 2nd meal was better than the first. Breakfast was also very acceptable, though the dining room is a little dark.

    Our room was perfectly comfortable, not too small, and we were very pleased with our stay. There was a fancy gilt headboard, and a huge painting of cherubs above the bed. We slept like we were on a cloud!

    I'm happy to provide this positive review, since I was a bit worried about our reservation when I read the site before our trip. Fear not, it's a fine hotel.

    Avid Amadeus Fan

    from

    I had a really enjoyable stay, I don't recognise the hotel from previous reviews.

    The staff were very accomadating and friendly, happy to deal promptly with anything we requested. There was a huge breakfast selection, all of it high quality and very tasty. Presentation was obviously taken into account, with large display cabinets in the main hallways showcasing Venitian costume and Murano glass. The rooms themselves were lovely (we had two rooms across the family) and very comfortable.

    The hotel has the street on one side, but backs out onto a leafy park on the other side. The street is busy, but no more busy than anywhere else in Venice. It is a 2 minute walk away from the station and 5 minutes from the bus station and car park, which makes carrying suitcases and kids a doddle. Everywhere else is very easily reached by foot or, if you really can't manage a 20 minute walk through beautiful architecture, the vaperetto. We had an excellent long weekend, would go back to stay there without hesitation.

    Amadeus, Not a disaster, but a bit dissapointing

    from

    We stayed at the Amadeus Hotel, Venice, on the 16th and 17th january 2005. It was our first trip to Venice and so choosing a decent hotel was important to us. The Amadeus is depicted as a 4 star hotel and it seemed to be just what we were looking for.

    Unfortunatly we had already booked the hotel before i decided to read its reviews - Big mistake......

    We booked the Half board option to include evening meal, however as we were checking in we were told by the manager that the restaurant was closed for 1 month, so they would not be able to give us our evening meal. I asked the manager for a refund of the meal price but he refused and told us to take it up with our agent on return to the UK. This would mean that we would have had to pay again for our meals in another restaurant even having paid Amadeus (via our agent) for them already.

    I explained to the manager that this was unfair and to his credit he arranged for us to have our meals in another hotel nearby. This would have been acceptable except when we arrived at the hotel as arranged we found this hotel`s restaurant was also closed - nightmare.

    In the end we had to use another restaurant and pay for our meals ourselves and we have been left trying to claim back the money we paid for half board.At the time of this writing we are still waiting for the refund although i am hopeful.

    All this aside, we had a reasonable stay at the hotel although in my opinion it is not a 4 star hotel........ 3 stars at best. I found the staff friendly, the breakfast was reasonable and the hotel was warm and inviting.

    As for our room, we were on the third floor, the standards of cleanliness was exceptional and the bathroom looked new and was a decent size. The sleeping area was not big and the double room we requested comprised of two single beds pushed together (not good for honeymooners) this was disappointing as we estimated that only 6 rooms were being used out of over 60.

    It is worth noting that the hotel restaurant is a Japanese Suchi restaurant and not to everybody`s taste.

    Lastly, the location of the hotel is not very central, although this is not a problem as it is 2mins walk from the water bus terminal- which runs every 10 mins.

    Would i stay here again ?

    Definatly not.

    Why I would stay here again

    from

    I almost didn't stay here because of the reviews I read before my trip.

    This hotel is exactly as depicted.i.e. four star. The hotel is clean,neat,our room was well tended and clean. Yes the furniture was a little ripe,but the service,and the breakfast ,which was included,was right on the money...and the price was right. The hotel is situated on a busy but charming street...a previous review would lead you to believe that is was a negative,actually it was charming,local shops a few good restaurants(avoid the Gobbi) including a fast food place called Brek. It's a replete with everything you'de need to give you a feeling of community. The hotel is located 5 minutes walk from the one of the main Vaporetto(waterbus) terminals in Venice,and the railway station. This is a wonderful advantage as every Vaporetto stops within walking distance of your hotel. So if it's a daytrip over to Murano, or a Rome you're a the transportation hub. If you have never been to Europe,you'll find the rooms are substantially smaller than our rooms stateside so be prepared for that. While you are there don't miss the opportunity to see and hear the music of Vivaldi,Mozart,and Bach. The concerts are frequent and inexpensive. If you have more questions on some fun things to do,and how to get around comfortably in Venice I've provided my email. I would enjoy hearing from other travelers about their experiences in Venice.

    Okay, but not great

    from

    The Amadeus Hotel was okay, but not great. The room was very small and old but clean. The bathroom was a decent size and looked as though it had been recently redone. Our room was facing the courtyard and was reasonably quiet. The hotel was a good value, possibly because it isn't near any of the things you want to see in Venice. It is next to the train station and a 10-15 minute walk from the parking garages. You can take a 45 minute walk to Piazza San Marco or hop a vaporetto (the station is very near the hotel). The morning breakfast, which is included, was okay, but not great. We weren't impressed with the hotel, and we will most likely stay somewhere else next time.

    Do Not Syat Here

    from

    Stayed at the hotel June 09 and 10, 2003. I am a avid traveller and no where in the world (but a third world country) is this a 4 star hotel. Hotel has NO non-smoking rooms. Furniture and bed were old. Breakfast poor. Had to climb over the toilet and bidet to get to the balcony. Terrible location. Lista di Spagna is an unattractive busy street. Hotel is a long walk to the tourist area's- way too far. Hotel front desk manager arrogant. DO NOT STAY HERE. THERE ARE MANY FAR SUPERIOR HOTELS IN NICER LOCATIONS! Do not believe the ad. Other than the train station this hotel is not close to anything you want to visit in Venice.

    Good Hotel in Venice

    from

    We were there in November 1998 and 1999. Hotel is about 400 meters east of S. Lucia train station, Vaparetto stop, water taxi stations, and one of the three bridges that cross the Grand Canal.The hotel lobby remained dry during the high tide floods which happened both times we were there due to the high spot on the street where it is located.We had the same room each time, facing the street Lista di Spagna. I requested this. This can be noisy until very, very late but I always sleep with earplugs anyway. The quiet rooms face the inner courtyard. The room was large but a little threadbare and the electric light bulbs were a bit weak. It had a modern large bathroom and cable/satellite TV. The hotel had a nice breakfast room an served a good "Italian" cold breakfast.The hotel was part of the Best Western reservation system then and we got a better rate than that quoted by the hotel directly.It was an excellent value in a city with very high room rates.

    ... many of them are peeing on the walls and the odd one ******** in the middle of the walkways. There is no grass anywhere, and we think these dogs probably live in apartments, and they all come out to walk at the end of the day, and around the lanes/roads is the only place to walk them. There also is a lot of litter around, and people seem to throw it out of the boats without thinking of the impact.

    Time for bed now.

We walked to the glass blowing place to find no one was there, so we went back to the information booth to get refunds for the ticket we got sold but the man insisted that we go. When we went back to the glass blowing we found a man there that showed us the entrance and showed us to the glass blowing demonstration room. We got a glass blowing demonstration that lasted about ...

    Roisin has, in her infinite wisdom, booked front row seats on the Easyjet, airbus 319. This entitled us to speedy boarding. We skipped the large queue at check in and whizzed through security. We both agreed that checking in should be this painless every time!

Our plane doesn't leave till just before 10 pm tomorrow so we put the museum visit on hold. We get to the square but because of the rain , everyone is congregated under cover all along the sides. The shops are doing good business today & we help their cause. As time slips by, the ...

Given the age and profile of the structures and the combination of the crystal clear water and dense foliage in the area, a beautiful environment emerges.   We couldn't help but like Slovenia. It is not only extremely pretty and uncluttered, but more importantly, the people we were meeting were making a considerable impression on us. In Lake Bled large family groups were the norm and teenage groups ...
