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.

... found the fruit and vegetable markets - but most stalls had packed up. There were lots of pigeons scavenging over the fruit and vegetables that were still left. I visited a church and inside there were wonderful displays of musical instruments - violins, lutes etc. I.

We decided against any form of water transport this time, but enjoyed watching the many gondolas from the bridges and listening to the singing of a couple of the drivers!
Woke up about 7 and started to get ready and pack, had 2/3 of a jam sandwich, an apple and some orange juice for breakfast, then checked out of the hotel and walked to the station where we got the 10:30 train to Venice. Caught the bus and walked 15 minutes to the campsite and checked in, then sorted our stuff in the tent (which was fine!) and got changed to our bikinis and went in the pool and jacuzzi which was at the campsite, stayed there ...
... the heat & humidity so headed back to our accommodation and brought stuff from the supermarket for lunch - selection unbelievable. Love Venice and when you think everything is delivered or collected by boat it is amazing how it runs so well. We watched the garbage barges collect garbage, barges deliver everything to a supermarket, saw ambulance boats and delivery trucks deliver all the goods to be unloaded and moved around by boat - so much ...
