Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Mercurio Venice
An exceptionally well run hotel. This is an absolute gem. We had a canal view room opposite Mozart's house, a prime route for the gondolas to come down, it was large and clean, air conditioned and the atmosphere the proximity to the canal generated was truely unforgettable. The management could not do enough for you, from holding your baggage to providing a plentiful and included in the price breakfast. It is very central, and if you are bringing your bags from the boat drop off point at St. Marks, it is just one bridge to go over which makes life very easy. You can find a lot of very average hotels in Venice, but by my experience this hotel is a real gem and should not disappoint you.
Charming, great location, friendly staff
Our stay at the Mercurio in mid-July 2004 was lovely. The staff was friendly and our room clean, comfortable, and most importantly for the time of year, had a great air-conditioning system! The location is excellent. Breakfast was tasty and a nice way to start the day. Especially considering the affordable price, I would definitely stay there again!
Great location, good price, friendly staff, small room
The hotel was in a very convenient location, 5-min from St. Marco. It's in a very small street (about 1 yard wide) so it could be hard to find at first, but most Venice streets are hard to find. Our room was really small, perhaps the smallest in the hotel. It could barely fit a queen size bed and two small nightstands. But it has a cute balcony overlooking the courtyard. I took a peak into other rooms when the maids were cleaning and found they were larger than ours. So if you want to avoid this small room on the top floor, make sure to mention this.
Other than that, the staff was very friendly. I like the breakfast although my boyfriend didn't because it did not contain any meat product. We stayed for 2 nights in June and it costs 90 euros/night. I believe this is a great price for Venice.
Very good for the price
The best thing about this hotel is the location. Not only is it right near St. Mark's Square - it's easy to get to by public transportation. Yes, it could have been fancier, but it was clean and the people were friendly & helpful.
If you are on a budget (hotels in Venice are VERY expensive), this is a nice alternative.
I went to Venice with my wife for 2 days and we wanted a simple, but nice hotel, not too expensive and near everything. We decided to go to the hotel Mercurio based on previous reviews and were not disappointed.
The hotel is 5 minutes walk from the St Marks place and is located in a very quiet area. I believe it's a family run hotel and the staff was very friendly. We checked out early in the morning, around 7am, while the breakfast was normally starting at 8am. Well, the hotel staff just made sure that we didn't leave without having a meal.
Even if the room was very simple, it was not an issue for us, considering the price (we paid 90 Euros for a night by cash). We just needed a clean and simple place to stay for the night.
Overall, I would recommend this hotel to those who are looking for something simple, convenient, not expensive and near everything!
Wonderful in Venice
This hotel is perfect. Staff are terrific, friendly and helpful. Location is 5 minutes from St Marks. Food is everwhere - be sure to visit Rosa Rosa around the corner. Rooms are small but that's standard in Venice. Breakfast, the staff and a cool room made the days of hiking around much easier - Thank you Monica. Stayed 4 nights in August.

... We decided to head to the restaurant to get dinner, but as we went to lock up, we discovered the lock on the door was, in the words of the guy who confirmed it, "caput". 45 minutes and a fixed door later, we actually made it to find food, and as we're in Italy, decided it would be rude not to get a pizza...again...because who doesn't love pizza?!
We then headed back to our tent, and are having a nice relaxing evening. ...
... since 1720. Goethe and Lord Byron drank there. Because of its premiere location on the Piazza San Marco, it commands an ungodly high price, with an extra 6 euros per person upcharge for the atmospheric music played by a small quartet. Even knowing all this, we ducked out of the rain and into seats to enjoy a mid-afternoon sweet.
In search of possible restful things to do this evening, we found several excellent programs on ...
... very good. I need to tell you all that the email is not working so you need to contact us through the blog. So far there have been no problems there. Tonight we all had dinner at a local hotel we had beautiful pasta and fish. We were all very excited as we never seem to get anything other than chicken. Vegetables are almost non existent. Had better get to bed as we are starting again tomorrow at 6.30am Love to all Judith and ...
... if you had to get lost in any city, it would be Venice. It’s such a beautiful city. The canals, bridges, and gondolas are just like you’ve seen in pictures. And then there are the streets and alleys, lined with restaurants, cafes, shops, and residential buildings, all charming and old and right out of a dream. You pass one beautiful old cathedral or museum after another, and the occasional public square or campo. There is the din of human voices in the ...
... until suddenly the bus stopped, the driver yelled something in Italian, and all of the passengers got off. One thing I’ve learned since being here is when in a foreign country and you don’t know what’s happening, look around and do whatever the locals are doing. So, we followed suit and hopped off the bus. No seemed as worried, confused, or baffled as we did. We had no choice but to act fast, it was raining hard and we had a train to catch. Luckily I ...
