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.

... the amazing places the tour guides have to offer. Nevertheless, along with the tourist spots, do not forget that Venitians are also famous for their culture and lifestyle. So take a wrong turn, walk down a quiet street and walk off the beaten track, I can guarantee you'll be interested and pleased with what you find! Heading to the land of romance and arguably Shakespeare's most noted play next... Verona, the city of Romeo and Juliette! Interesting times lie ahead! Ciao, for now, ...
... Piazzo San Marco. I couldn't believe they could fit so many people in one square. It was packed. Too crowded for my liking.
It was so nice then for the four of us to hire a gondola for an hour and glide through the canals. It was so calm and peaceful on the water compared to the busy square. It was definitely the most memorable part of the day.
We met up with the others again, did some souvenir shopping and stopped for a drink before heading ...
... Slovenia's past. It also gave us a chance to have a swim in the Adriatic. It was so warm and clear. We left Piran and headed north-east for Postonja and a tour of the limestone caves. The caves extend for about 60 km and so to reach where the tour actually starts it is necessary to take a small train underground for a journey of about 3 km. It takes about 10 minutes. At the end of the tour and before we re-boarded the train for the return journey out of the caves, a ...
Our plane arrived 1 hour late due to a one hour delay in leaving Atlanta. Just as we were preparing to pull away from the gate in Atlanta, a very windy and fierce rain put a damper on our departure. Once we were airborne everything went smoothly. Bailey got lots of good sleep, I slept fitfully, as usual. Mike read until about four hours before we landed. Hannah took after her granddad and was wide awake watching her movies, etc. on her ...
... imported glass copies sell for as little as 1 euro, compared to the genuine Italian product at 10-20 euros. My purchase was from a small local glass blower's shop!
And sadly, many of the retailed items are no longer unique to Venice.
My lunch experience was though, many cafes have seated/dine in or stand at the counter prices for the same food and drinks..Here I stood with locals and tourists alike enjoying a c******ny, free ...
