Very disappointing! Our room was VERY DIRTY, stained carpet, chipped paint, light fixtures were bent and falling off the walls. The toilet seat was not fastened well and moved whenever anyone sat on it. Mold and water marks on the ceiling. We asked for a water view and got a view of a dark alley. The lift was not working and had to lug our luggage up three flights of stairs. Stairway and reception was dark and dingy. I felt like crying. On a more positive note, it was in a great location and the views from the breakfast room and sitting room were outstanding of the Grand Canal. Hotel did not have a map of the area, and most services including wifi was extra. This could be a fabulous hotel, if they would clean the place up.

Love the location. This was our second stay here. First time we accidentally picked this hotel. Second time we KNEW this was where we wanted to be. Staff friendly great breakfast. Hopefully there will be a third stay!Beds are a little too firm, but this is a minor detail since we were worn out sightseeing.

I did not stay at this hotel - I booked it for my daughter who is backpacking around Europe this summer and staying at hostels. I wanted to surprise her when she got to Venice give her place to stay in the center of action with a feeling of safety and comfort. She emailed me it was perfect! She was beyond delighted with where it was, how nice it was and how much she enjoyed her stay. It was a true treat!

Hotel advantages are it's location to the Grand Canal in Venice ... and it includes breakfast. The room was not great ... small, no working air condition. The safe was too small. The beds were ok, but not great. But was always clean. Not much interaction with the staff.

For a three star hotel my stay was very nice. Were I to rate it very nice however someone will wonder why they didn't get a mint on their pillow. This is an entirely European hotel with an elevator and a shower stall each about 2 1/2 feet square. As of May 2012 The Hotel Ovidius is in two side by side parts. One part has no elevator and residents in that part, to reach the breakfast room, must go outside and back in. This might be considered a great inconvenience for many. To join the two parts of the hotel, all that has to happen is for a false wall to be removed, for which the Ovidius is trying to get a permit. The day staff, typically Lucia, was simply delightful; informed and helpful and fluent. (Should you stay tell her Paul says "hi".) The evening and night staffs were equally friendly but appeared less knowledgeable and certainly less fluent in my native language, English. A few of the rooms front on the Grand Canal overlooking the Rialto. Occasionally however the Rialto area gets noisy in the evening so if you're an early-to-bed type like me you might be happier in a less scenic interior room. Views of the Rialto are however available from the small terrace off the breakfast room (on one side of the hotel) or from the veranda (on the other side). Wifi is available in the second floor breakfast room and (so I hear) the first floor sitting room below it. It might stretch to the rooms on either side of these but you probably won't get a decent signal in your room.

Perfect quiet location amongst busy Rialto district. Right on the canal. Comfortable room if a little ornate but suited to Venice. Nice breakfast and friendly staff. Great recommendation from the hotel owner for a restaurant nearby called S.Aponal 1251. The food was divine and the owner probably the nicest man we met in Venice. A real must.

Hotel in great location near the RIalto Bridge. Room we had was small, with not too much storage space, but was clean & comfy. Towels were changed daily, and bathroom was clean. Staff were very friendly and spoke perfect English. Breakfast in lovely room overlooking the Grand Canal, with adequate buffet choice. Would not hesitate to recommend for a budget break.

Hotel had a great location easy to walk to a number of sites. However the room we were in was very dark. Wifi only in breakfast room for additional fee. The shower doors didnt stay on the rollers and wouldnt shut/open properly. Bed was extremly firm & was not to our comfort. The staff were mostly friendly, was ok for a 2 night stay but wouldnt recommend for longer.

Do not stay in this hotel if you want a comfortable bed, wifi, a shower that works or any dirt of customer service. We arrived to check in and were told that we couldn't until 2.30 as the "room wasn't ready"...it was 1.45! We went away and had lunch and came back. Took the woman 30 minutes to check us in. After paying 460euros we were told that wifi was "additional"!!! We paid it as we needed it but got a shake of the head and a huff when I gave her a 50 (my only note) so had to pay tax to help her with the change! Room was very very small with a alley view and a bathroom where most of the accessories were 100 years old or broken. One half of the shower door was missing, the other hanging off. Reported this to reception to be greeted her with "we have no other rooms". Mentioned that the wifi didn't work and she informed me that it only worked on the balcony! She never mentioned this although claimed she did. Tv is 100 years old with no uk speaking channels. Asked reception which channels were uk and got "I don't know". Asked if she could let me know and never heard back. Breakfast was not even edible and the place was like a morgue. Pillows were like pancakes and knew it was pointless asking for additional ones. All in all they have bit thought for customer service and just want your money. Location is right by Rialto bridge but you don't need to stay that close as taxi, walking, gondola will get you anywhere. Venice is a day trip place only in my opinion as everything is £££

The hotel is in a brilliant location overlooking the Grand Canal and the Rialto Bridge. Short walk to get to from the Allilaguna vaporetto stop from the airport, which is a consideration when wheeling luggage around Venice. The hotel was old but comfortable. Good selection for breakfast and very close to any number of restaurants for dining out.

This hotel is 50m from Rialto Bridge, the canal view rooms giving a very pleasing view of the surroundings. Great staff, and the room was comfortable furnished in traditional Venetian style. No plugs for the basin, bath or bidet though. This apparently was because all of the plugs had to be removed from all rooms because of "problems", the staff didn't elaborate. The over bath shower worked fine though. A number of the light bulbs were in need of replacement. The bath was cracked and some of the fittings were loose. The bedroom had a double bed, which was comfortable. The furniture consisted of a double wardrobe, a dressing table and chair, and two bedside tables. A set of drawers would have been handy to have as the only drawer storage was the small drawer of the dressing table. A quirk of the room air-conditioning was that it had to be turned on and off by reception staff. The same applied for the temperature setpoint too. This could have proved problematic if it wasn't for the fact that the mode could be switched from air-con to fan only on the control panel in the room. Breakfast was basic, with a small variety of cereals and cold meats available, in addition to tea, coffee, juice and milk. Toast with a range of spreads/jams and cake completed the offering. Given the age of the hotel, and regardless of the faults, I think it was a good place to stay, and I would stay there again.

This hotel was exactly what we were looking for for our one-night stay in Venice. We had just finished a Mediterranean cruise and wanted to spend a bit of time in Venice before heading home. The hotel is right on the Grand Canal just a few doors down from the Rialto Bridge. We easily got to our hotel by vaporetto. Our room on the second floor was average in size and did not have a view of the canal. However, the view from the breakfast room balcony was gorgeous! Wifi was available for 5 Euro, but only worked in the breakfast room, not the hotel room. This is not a super fancy or grand hotel, but it was clean and worked for us. The staff at the front door were very accommodating and friendly! We had a very late flight the day we checked out and they allowed us to store our bags there all day and evening while we toured around the city. We were very happy with the service and accommodations.

Small but nice hotel. we had the weirdest room i have ever seen in an hotel. It was a room located just beneath the roof and to get there you had to walk though what looked like a closet door (the main door to the room), then go 2 levels up on a small winding stair, pass the toilet on the 1 level and then your will arrive at cosy room with a view to the Rialto bridge and the main canal though Venice. The only thing letting the room down was the maintenance. It was worn down and some effort to restore it should be prioritized. the toilet had been refurbished not so long ago so that was fine.

I booked the hotel only a week or so before I arrived in Venice, and I chose it because it was the most affordable of the various hotels that still had rooms available for the whole of the 4-day period of my trip. I was actually expecting the worst - noise from the crowded Rialto area, rickety stairs up to my room that would overlook some dingy alley, sagging beds and a very cursory breakfast. The Ovidius turned out to be the most pleasant surprise - very Venetian but also very practical. First, there was a lift up to the second floor. Second, because my room did overlook the alley rather than the Grand Canal, it was quiet and pleasant. Third, the bed was firm, the chandelier was very pretty, the room was clean and air-conditioned, the bathroom was tiled in lovely pink and cream marble and the shower worked well. Fourth, the breakfast selection was not large, but it was certainly more than adequate and there was a good view of the Grand Canal plus another very lovely chandelier. Fifth, the hotel staff were all very friendly and helpful. All in all, the hotel provided a definite Venetian character to my trip plus a good place to rest and relax. My only suggestion: wholemeal bread option for breakfast?

Very nice staff and great location. The hotel itself is very basic-some furniture-shelves-for example-are just broken and falling apart (they just "look" like shelves but do not try to put anything on them). Every room seems to have different problems- Internet not free and not reliable. Breakfast is basic. Great restaurants nearby-with a better wi-fi. Shortly speaking: very nice staff but a run-down hotel.

The hotel is in a fantastic location, 100m from the Rialto Bridge on the Grand Canal. No chance of getting lost as you are right opposite the Rialto Water Bus Stop! Hotel could do with a freshen up, however, the hotel is very clean. The hotel staff are very friendly and left a bottle of Prosecco in our room on my partner's birthday..which was the purpose of our trip..a really nice touch! Breakfast is basic but does the job. This hotel is situated perfectly for visiting all landmarks you'd wish to see on your visit. By a waterbus ticket for your duration of stay rather than buying on each trip as this will save you a lot of money. All all we had a fantastic time and will be back!

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights in April 2014 and had a pleasent stay. The staff were friendly and helpful and always had a smile. The facilities are clean but fairly basic overall. Breakfast was basic with toast and cereal offered, could do with more choice e.g fruit of hot foods. On the plus side the hotel is in a great location just by the Rialto bridge which can be reached in less than 2 minutes. San Marco square is a 5 minute walk and the hotel is best placed to be able to explore Venice from a great location.

Fantastic location on the Grand Canal, reasonable price, clean. Old building, no elevator, modest rooms, modest breakfast - but all this was expected in this price range for an old city like Venice. On the other hand, amazing sitting rooms with balconies overlooking the Grand Canal were a great advantage. One even had a piano, very cozy. We would return to this hotel without hesitation.

Very much enjoyed our stay. Hotel was comfortable and staff very helpful. I had chosen to pay slightly more for a room overlooking the canal, and then we were then upgraded to an even better room. Watching all the activity on the canal was an experience in itself and well worth the extra cost (even without the upgrade). Having read some other reviews I was prepared for breakfast to be meagre, but in fact it was fine, with a good range of cereals, yoghurts, meats and bread products. Only slightly odd thing was that our room had a spa bath but no plug, and when we asked if we could have a plug it was refused because "people keep flooding". As there was no shower curtain either this meant we had to crouch in the bath trying desperately hard not to soak the floor - but we chose to view it as indicative of the madness that is the basic premise of Venice. If you are expecting sleek modernity and all the amenities then Venice is probably not the place for you. But if you just give yourself over to the charm of the place it captivates and entrances.

The restroom was located at the mid level of the room and was accessed via the spiral staircase. That made things a little inconvieniant especially after a couple of glasses of wine. The other thing that was a little bit of a pain the sleeping area was split level meaning the floor under the head of the bed was about 8 inches lower than the foot of the bed. They made up the difference by shortening the legs of the bed at one end to level the bed. The only problem was the floor was all done in laminate of the same color. Making the 8 inch drop invisible to the eye, almost broke our neck in a couple of occasions . Given the cost of rooms in Venice the hotel was not a bad value. Would not stay there again if the same room was issued to me (301).

Pretty easy to find/checkin. Breakfast was adequate and welcome. On the day we checked out they made sure we had something prepped even though it was outside the normal hours (had to check out at 6 am). WiFi is an extra fee if you book through an agency, but the biggest problem is it doesn't reach the rooms, so you only have access in the foyer or in the dining area.

We felt this room would have been ok as a single room. It was sadly lacking in wardrobe space, the only small wardrobe had the bottom 1/3rd taken up with a mini bar fridge , and it had a safe box taking up part of the top 2/3rds. The result was having to live out of our suitcase for 6 days. We were not expecting a window view of the Rialto bridge, however a wall about 2 feet away was a bit of a shock !! This room was the only one on that side of the corridor , and it felt it was an after thought for a room purely to maximise profit. The shower leaked between hose and hand set resulting in reduced pressure at rose, also hand set holder could not be adjusted effectively as it would not tighten up !

We upgraded to a room with a view when we arrived. Definitely worth the money. The hotel is situated off the Canal near Rialto. The view was amazing at all times of the day. The furnishings were a little outdated but a very comfortable room. Great staff! Made us feel very welcome.

This hotel wont be for everyone, but for us it was amazing. The first thing to say is that the staff were amazing. Truly wonderful people who seemed happy to see us and always wanted to help. Breakfast was excellent, a choice of different things for all tastes. The location was outstanding, we had a superb Grand Canal view and just a short stroll to some lovely bars and restaurants that were great value. On a slight downside, the air con didn't work and the shower head kept falling off the wall and spaying the room, but these are small issues when put against all the great things.

Hotel Locanda Ovidius is centrally located making all Venice attractions an easy 5 to 15 minute walk away. Front office staff were consistently friendly and helpful. Would happily go back to this convenient location.

Room was very small, but then again what is not in Venice. My wife and I enjoyed the location of the hotel....steps from Rialto Bridge and on the grand canal, and all we did was just come in after a long day of shopping and site seeing to sleep.

The room was small even compared to European standards. We requested and payed for an upgraded room overlooking the canal. The room we received was at the end of a hallway furthest from the canal. I did voice my concerns over this but English became a hard language for them to understand. The bathroom was small, the shower door did not work until "I" fixed it. The location was the only saving grace as it was meters away from the Realto bridge and great shops and restaurants.

Room interior probably looked the same in 1700 and may have been the same fabric on the walls. Looked moldy in spots but may have just been really old. No smell otherwise. Bathroom was more updated. Wifi is extra and only works in the breakfast area - disappointing. Our room had a lovely view of the wall next door BUT the breakfast area had a spectacular view of the Grand Canal out on the itty-bitty balcony. Breakfast was typical european fair but staff not the most friendly. Coffee and tea premade at some ungodly hour so that it was cold at 730. Not inexpensive but with the great location with water taxis, food and shops worth the price.

The hotel's condition was a little bit worse than I was expecting for the ratings I had seen and the price of the hotel. But everything is more expensive in Venice, and more expensive to keep up, so I can't say it was terribly surprising. The location was great, just down the canal from the Rialto bridge. Very close to the Rialto market. The wi-fi was a pretty big rip-off. We had to pay 5 Euro for a wi-fi password that only worked in the common areas. So we paid 5 Euro to use wi-fi when there is a computer available anyway. The wi-fi showed up on devices in our room, but the connection was so slow I just used my 3G on my phone.

Stayed there for 12 nights. Close to everything - 10 min walk to St Mark's square, 15 min to Pl Roma, waterbus stop across canal. very good location to explore Venice. We were initially disappointed that our room did not have a view of the canal, but that turned out to be good thing since the Canal Grande is noisy from the early morning to late night. Breakfast includes cofee, tea, milk, juices, toast bread, ham and salami, cake, cereal, variety of jams and is the same every day. If you need variety, something freshly cooked (i.e. eggs) or fruits and vegetables, you need to go outside of find a hotel with full kitchen. If you are not picky, there is enough food to fill you up until lunch. Just about the only complain we have is lack of WiFi signal in the room.

The Hotel was clean and the breakfast was pleasing. The only thing that was annoying was that we had to pay an extra tax fee (although only 3euros per person per night) was only allowed to be paid cash.
