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.

... island. There we checked into the hotel and got situated before heading out for the city walking tours. I was getting a little nervous as they kept telling us how many people didn’t enjoy Venice their first visit, but as we walked around the city I really couldn’t understand why. There is no other city like Venice, it is in a category of its own. The more I saw the more I loved it. Since we got in a little later (and things close so early here as ...
... the tourists the little island was certainly busy. We left the craziness of historical Venice and went to the island of Burano. Burano is beautiful, each house painted a different colour with the government choosing the colour for you. Burano is famous for its linen and lace, so many beautiful tablecloths and clothes and no hoards of people, it was so pleasant just to wander around and take in its beauty and ambiance. We had lunch in Burano which was ...
After a few days in Venice, the ship leaves to start our European journey. Our cabins are great. Spa-level connecting balconies -yay! we have space.
Dinner was a bit confusing. Apparently another family took our table and the staff had to scramble for a table for 9. Good news was that we received a comp bottle of wine. Worth the wait;)
... low tide so we couldn't disembark at the hotel. After a quick visit to our rooms we head off for a walk through Venice heading for St Marco's Square, tiny narrow winding streets up and down quaint bridges passing over the canals. The following morning we head off for a walk around venice then a boat ride to Murano and Burano Islands. We check out the ...
... time. Enjoyed the trip along the Grand Canal, and wandering through several different squares and pathways. So many short narrow paths, it was so easy to lose your way. We were disappointed in the gondolas. In the movies it always looks so romantic...the 4 of us were planning to share a ride.....real life proved to be very different. It looked like a traffic jam on the 400 highway on a Friday night!. The gondolas were all jammed together, pushing ...
