"Back alley gem"
Tucked away off the Grand Canal, this is a surprisingly delightful hotel with a fantastic, helpful, engaging staff. Next door to the train station and an easy walk from where the cruise ship people mover drops you off (although the steps on the marble and glass bridge are a killer with suitcases). Near access to a vaporetto stop and great local cafes […] and restaurants. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
For the price of the room Hotel Abbazia is an exceptional value. Although the room was small by American standards it was modernly appointed and clean. The hotel's lounge was quite spacious and comfortable. It also provides a nice place for an evening drink at the bar. In the mornings the Abbazia provides a very healthful and ample breakfast setting […] which is included in the room price. The was staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Located near the Grand Canal and train station makes makes sightseeing very easy as well as for entering/exiting the city. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel Abbazia in Venice, Italy is a great hotel."
The Hotel Abbazia is a very clean, safe and affordable hotel. It is within a block of the train station and local bus station. The water taxi/bus stop(Ferrcia) is at the end of the street on the Grand Canal. It is one block from the Grand Canal and close to the port where our cruise ship docked. The hotel clerks were very helpful and they all spoke […] good English. They have a very nice free continental breakfast. The rooms are nice and large compared to a lot of the European hotels. The hotel was just beautiful inside and it made for a wonderful vacation for us. The price was very affordable for us through Hotels.com. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

The hotel was conveniently located and the staff were very friendly and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent staff, great location"
The hotel is at a primary location--close to railway station, the bus terminal, a station for the river boats and the harbor for the big ships--yet in a quite alley. The room was super clean and comfortable for a three-star hotel while the service is close to five stars. The staff members are all very pleasant and eager to help. The free breakfast was […] in very good quality. The only thing that I wish to improve is that the bathroom in our room--though equipped with hot-tub and a movable shower head but no shower curtain and thus very hard if you do not want to have a hot bath but simply take a shower. Nevertheless, overall, it is a great hotel and definitely a bargain for what you paid for. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice quiet place"
Lovely little hotel close to the train station, but off the main street. Nice room. Good breakfast. Comfortable mattress. One night stay before a train trip to Florence. Worked very well. Would recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very Close to Acropolis"
Athens public transportation was on strike. Hotel was accomidating at getting transportation, though very pricey. Nice Breakfast included made for a good start to the day. The room was a room, bed very stiff though after traveling through Europe seems to be a theme.Genuine Expedia guest review
Situated just by the train and bus station. You'll probably pass it the first time cuz it's just down some alley way. Very nice rooms with good character. Service was exceptional. It did rain one night but no big deal the hotel offers umbrellas. Friends of ours had to stay at the hotel just next to us and their staff was terrible and rude. Breakfast […] was great we ate out in the gardens it was beautiful. Can't wait to go back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Ehh, had better"
We stayed in room #214. Of the four hotels we stayed in on our two week Euro-trip, this was by far the worst (and all were in the same stars / price range). The people at the front desk were the least friendly of all the hotels and the room was dark and dingy (terrible dark red wallpaper in the room from top to bottom) and it smelled terribly of smoke. […] I'm not sensitive to smoke (both parents smoked in the house growing up), and this room gave me a headache. Also, the air conditioning (which barely worked to begin with) was mysteriously completely shut off after our first day there, so it was super hot in the room and we couldn't open the window because there was no screen and the mosquitoes would come in by the dozens. Also - and I know this isn't the hotel's fault - but there are ridiculously loud church bells right next to the hotel that ring at odd times like 7:15am and 9:30am (I'm guessing on the times) and they ring over 100 times each time they ring (I literally counted 105 bell rings in one ringing session!). It's really almost comical how long and loudly they ring. The location is about 100 meters from the train station, which was amazing for us because we took the train into and out of town. The city is super tight and crowded, and the water taxis are ridiculously expensive, so we were very happy to be a 30 second walk from the train station. The hotel is about as far as a walk as you can get from the epicenter of the tourist area (San Marco Palace area), but it's walkable from the hotel and we did it almost every day without trouble (FYI - we live in a major US city and are used to walking a lot every day). So depending on what your priorities are, this location is either perfect or not very great. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
THE HOTEL HAD A VERY GOOD BREAKFAST BUFFET INCL. WITH ROOM, ROOM WAS NOT LARGE BUT SUFFICIENT, WALKABLE FROM CRUISE SHIP TERMINAL, WALKED TO SAINT MARK SQUARE TWICE AND RETURNED. ALSO RODE THE WATERBUS, VERY EFFICIENT TO MURANO. vENICE IS EASY TO GET AROUND IN JUST FOLLOW THE PEOPLE TRAFFIC. HAD A GREAT TIME.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel Abbazia - near Plaza Roma and Train Station"
This is a pleasant hotel, converted from an old monastery, within walking distance of the train station (no bridges to cross) and Plaza Roma (one bridge to cross). The lane to the hotel is small and can easily be missed, so watch carefully after you have passed the train station. The staff were friendly, helpful, and fluent in English and French. Our […] room was quiet, clean and adequately sized, with a tub and hand-held shower. If your sleep is easily disturbed by light, you will want to bring eye-shades as the window shutters did not completely block the light in our room. Free WiFi (get login information at the front desk) and a nice breakfast (continental) is included in the room rate. The Ponte de Scalzi bridge across the grand canal and the Ferrovia waterbus stop are within 150 yards of the hotel entry. Beyond the hotel's control, but of note to travelers, are the men who want to help you with transport your luggage on the bridge between the Plaza Roma and the Cannaregio section of the city. They will grab your luggage and take off quickly, so you must either firmly and frequently say no, or tell them what you are willing to pay. If you don't do this you may find yourself in an agruement over the value of their service when you reach the opposite side of the bridge. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Older hotel, but updated. Easy walk to train station and water bus. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Rooms are small, but adequate. Good breakfast. Would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable beds with wonderful service"
This hotel is a concern when you first walk down the alley, however, we discovered that there are tons of "alley's" in Venice. When we were greated at the desk, those concerns melted away. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. We left our bags with them in the morning until check in, and when we returned, they had even taken them to our room […] for us. The beds where exceptionally comfortable.. the AC perfect.. and the breakfast fresh and delicious. The bathroom was newly updated and beautifully tiled. It felt like stepping back in time to a warm, friendly inn. The outside area in the middle of the building felt secluded and quiet... a nice reprieve from the 12 day cruise and tours we had just completed. We will return!

"Very nice place to stay !"
We stayed 2 nights pre-cruise at the Hotel Abbazia. It is very close to the train station, easy walking distance even with luggage. We took a van from the airport which left us at the Plaza Roma, not very far from the hotel, but we had 2 persons with wheelchairs, and there is a fairly large bridge to go over. Walking was out of the question, so we took […] a water taxi to the Ferrovia stop, which is right by the train station and walking distance to the hotel, even with wheelchairs. As to the hotel, it is an old converted church/monastery, very clean, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were air conditioned, and we even slept with the windows open one night. The breakfast was very nice, with fresh rolls,toast and croissants, cheese and ham, cereal, hard boiled eggs, coffee, orange juice, etc.. It was very nice to just go downstairs and eat breakfast, and not have to look around the neighborhood for someplace to eat. We had a minor problem with the showerhead not working properly, and it was fixed promptly. If you are a late sleeper, there are church bells right next door that WILL wake you up at 7:15 and 8:15 am. There is also a bar/coffee bar that was open for a glass of wine or cappuccino in the large sitting room/living room area. And there is a very nice courtyard where you could also eat your breakfast, or sit out in the evening and relax and talk. I highly recommend the Hotel Abbazia and would definitely stay there in the future. Hint: Get the water bus/taxi 24 or 48 hour pass and take the water taxis all around Venice. You can get on and off as much as you want, and can really see several different neighborhoods. There is a great little restaurant right in the alley by the hotel, Alle Lance, that had the best pasta with bolognase sauce my father-in-law ever had. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was my second stay at this Hotel. The staff was really great. The Front Desk Clerks, Mirko and Rafaelle, were absolutely great. They were very helpful, recommended great restaurants, gave perfect advise on local attractions and made our stay perfect. This hotel is one of the most accessible in Venice as it is only a short walk to the train station. […] Also they have a great courtyard and great lounge/lobby. I will stay here again if I am back in Venice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastic location..right at the foot of Venice"
Close to absolutely everything. Charming room with friendly staff. A/C wasn't to be turned on for another week, so they got us a fan and we were set. Across the bridge from the train and bus station, but across the world in atmosphere from them. When you cross the bridge, you enter a new world. Loved our evening walks when we were too tired to do much […] but walk around the canal, shops and restaurants by our hotel. No elevator, but the stairs were easy to navigate and gave us just a little extra exercise. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

we recently stayed 1 night in early May. the hotel staff was very nice & friendly. As for the hotel itself, it is really run down. the room was hot. when asked for the air condition, we were told that it won't work before the summer & suggested to keep the window open. our room was on the first floor & open to the garden with no fly screen that we woke […] up with bug bites.

The location is excellent; 5 minute walk (with luggage) from the train station and ten minute walk (again with luggage) to the bus for the airport. The hotel is a converted abbey. Very cool architecture and floors. We were satisfied with our room. Only complaints were handheld shower (no shower curtain) and hard pillows. These two issues would not […] keep us from staying at this location again. The staff was excellent. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I booked my stay at the Hotel Abbazia, based on a number of extremely positive reviews both here and on other travel rating sites. Following our stay, I am somewhat surprised by the overwhelmingly positive reviews that Abbazia has received. In a nutshell, Abbazia is an exceedingly faded and shabby hotel. Some amount of wear and tear is to be expected […] in a city like Venice, but even by the (low) standard of hotels in historic European cities, Abbazia is pretty rough. Furniture, walls, bed coverings and hanging art are old and worn, showing the signs of hard use. Our room was tiny, and the standing shower so small as to be actually funny, until we tried using it. If you were anywhere BUT Venice and walked into this hotel, you'd probably turn around and walk right back out again. All of that said, there were some high points: 1) Location -- the location of Abbazia is beyond excellent. It is literally the only place in Venice where you can stay without having to haul your bags through a dizzying combination of expensive boats and narrow, crowded alleys. Walk out of the train or bus station, turn left, and there you are. 2) Staff -- The staff are friendly, outgoing and quite helpful. They were uniformly funny and their restaurant recommendations excellent. 3) Cleanliness -- While old, small and badly in need of a refreshing, our room was impeccably clean. Bottom line: I'd rather have given this a 2.5 than a 2, but I felt like a lower score was warranted to balance out some of the over-reaching of other commenters. If you feel like a hotel should just be a clean, convenient place to rest your head, Abbazia might be right up your alley. However, if you like a hotel to be updated, roomy and well designed, you may want to keep looking. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

If you don't want to carry luggage up and down bridges, this is a perfect location. It is very near the train station which makes it great if you plan on day trips to other locations.

we were very happy with our stay at hotel abbazia. although it was not right on the grand canal, it was just down the alley from the canal, with a vaporetto " public motorboat" right there. it was nice & quiet.we loved venice & will be returnin.the hotel was also reasonable priced as well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Treated like family"
I can't say enough about the staff at the Hotel Abbrazia. We found the location to be perfect for both arriving from the airport and the ability to use the rail service which was right next door. While we were staying at the Hotel Abbrazia, my wifes Mother passed away. We had some issues with calling back to the States for info. The desk staff could […] not have been any nicer. They were compassionate and helpfull. I felt more like I was staying in someones home instead of a hotel. We were traveling in a group of 8 friends and relatives. Every afternoon we would return to the hotel and enjoy the court yard with little wine and cheese and make our evening plans. The morning breakfast buffet was very good. They provide a large variety of breakfast items and you don't start your day hungry, thats for sure. Because of the lacation and mainly because of the Staff, I would recommend this hotel to anyone. The rooms are slightly on the small side, but we had everything we needed. Room was clean and beds were comfortable. Too much to do around hotel and throughout Venice to worry about room size.

The hotel was lovely and the staff most very accommodating but we had a funky room that only had a jacuzzi tub with a hand held shower head and no shower curtain so showering and washing your hair was a challenge.

"Will stay here again."
I loved this hotel. As a solo traveler I was impressed with the location, condition of the hotel and the exceptional service of all the hotel staff. Location: close to the main bus terminus and the train station. No need to drag your luggage all over Venice. Vaporetto stops located mere steps away. Hotel: Very clean and cozy - it is a former monastery. […] Church bells in the morning are lovely. I had a single room that was quite roomy. Very clean, lots of fluffy towels, comfy bed. Breakfast: very good. I am still dreaming about the pastries, especially the chocolate croissants. Lots of variety - meats, cheeses, breads, yogurt, coffee drinks and fresh fruits. 2 laptops are located in the lobby to check e-mail, etc. (No printer) Service: exceptional by all the staff - most notably the front desk staff who were always cheerful and helpful.

"Great location, pleasant experience all around"
Hotel Abbazia is very close to the train station, the Piazzale Roma where the buses and taxis drop off, the two main vaporetto launches (waterbus), and two of the 4 bridges that cross the Grand Canal. They offered a great selection for breakfast. Our room was nice, clean, spacious for Europe, and a shower door is always a bonus. There's not much room […] inside the shower stall, but a door or curtain is more important to me. The free wifi always worked for us, and from our room instead of in the lobby. We would definitely stay there again and will recommend it to others. The location really couldn't be beat, especially if you like to walk, or if you are dragging luggage from the bus or boat.

"very good value for money"
This hotel occupies part of the appartment building and has no sign at all (just one of the ring buttons says 'domus praetoria') so it was not so easy to find at the first time. Location is great, few minutes walking from Termini station, not far from the city center and major attractions. Right on the street in front of the hotel there is a small street […] market selling various junk and also fresh fruits including strawberries which was appreciated:) In fact this hotel consists of several big appartments transformed into hotel rooms. The room was spacious and perfectly clean, seems like recently renovated. Hotel staff was very efficient with regards to small help like booking tickets or arranging a taxi. They also offer free breakfast but don't expect much. But at least coffee is good. Overall good value for money. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

The hotel is extremely coneniently located for the travelers arriving by car to Piazzale Roma (10 minutes walk)or train(100 meters from the train staition.It is very near the main "turist road" but by being in one of the adijacent alleys makes it actually secluded.The hotel has a spacious bar and the rooms(at least my room)are big for the Venetian standards […] and offer all the ammennties the traveller excpects including the free wi-fi connection.It is a 3 star hotel so it is not overly luxurious but very proper.The staff is very helpfull with the information about the city venues and have done everything possible to help me with my needs.For people not knowing Venice too well:just keep in mind that ist location is on almost opposite side of the City from Piazza San Marco that can be reached thouhg either through boat service(a station on the Grand Canal is 50 meters from the Hotel)or by a 20-25 min.walk Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"WONDERFUL Hotel and SUPER Location ..."
The Abbazia Hotel in Venice was GREAT ... the staff was WONDERFUL and the service throughout the hotel was OUTSTANDING. We had requested a 1st floor room, before we arrived, if possible due to medical issues and they had it waiting when we checked in at 1pm. The staff answered all our questions and gave us superb suggestions for locations to eat while […] there for lunch and dinner. The breakfast was very delicious at the hotel. We were surprised by the loud church bell at 7:15am on our 1st morning but it only added to the history and charm of the hotel. We didn't hear it at all the 2nd morning because of our 'jet lag' and sightseeing the evening before. The staff provided us with a excellent map of the area and provided perfect directions to the locations we were interested in seeing plus gave us hints about the water and bus taxi services, which where were very much appreciated. We would recommend The Abbazia Hotel to anyone and everyone going to Venice for a visit....you won't be disappointed. Take some 'water boots' along - tide rises 2 times a day and lowers 2 times a day (every 6 hours, 365 days). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Loved the stay @ Abbazia Hotel in Venice, Italy"
We stayed 2 nights @ Abbazia Hotel, Venice, Italy prior to a Mediterranean cruise from Port of Venice. The staff was very courteous and accommodating. There were no elevators; our bags were delivered to our rooms by staff. The complimentary breakfast was a plus. Each room was decorated differently, we loved our room. Transfer to Venice Port for our […] party of eight to include 10 bags was arranged by staff for a fee. The hotel location was convenient to walk around Venice for shopping, eating, and catching water taxi for other attractions. Overall very good experience and would recommend this hotel and stay there again. Room was located on 3rd floor, walking stairs helped burn calories for all the pastries, pizza, and gelato consumed during our stay. Hotel rate was reasonable. Be prepared to walk to reach the hotel including stairs which is not easy while carrying luggage. Even though the hotel was not easily accessible or readily visible since the streets of Venice are narrow (similar to alleys in some USA cities). But upon finding the street and entering hotel I was very pleased. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
