"Great location but tired hotel"
The staff were friendly and accommodating. Location by the Rialto is superb, especially if you have teenage children who like to wander around. Rialto and St. Mark's is signposted everywhere. However, the hotel is super tired, decor def not old school charm just old. Beds v uncomfy and no air-con. We went in April so temp was bearable but one room was […] incredibly hot. If you opened window you were assaulted every night with lots of noise and Mosquitos. We had a great time but 3 nights def enough. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

No need to take expensive water taxi; take # 1 water bus from main train station. Purchase a pass for 24, 36, 48 ... hours. Hotel is comfortable, with good breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent location, poor accommodation"
I have been to the Marconi on a number of occasions over the years, and have always enjoyed my stay. This year, however, I was very disappointed with the accommodation I was allocated by the hotel. I booked a "classic double or twin" as a single occupier and paid the same amount for the room that two people would pay. Last year when I visited, I was […] allocated a nice double room, again for single occupancy. It was large, and had double windows with a pleasant outlook. This year, the room I was allocated could not be described as a "classic" double. It was a single room with a double bed that filled most of the room. One side of the bed was against the wall, the other was twelve inches from the door less wardrobe. The small window was high up and looked out into the drainage shaft, with very little natural light getting through. I queried with the receptionist if the room was the “classic double” I had paid for. She did not seem to understand my complaint about how small the room was, but asked me if I wanted to change the room. I said yes if I could be allocated a reasonably sized double room. One was not available on the day of arrival, or the next day when I asked, or the next. So I gave up asking and made do with the room I had. My complaint is that I was not given the standard of accommodation I paid for. I had booked a “classic” double room for six nights and was given a sub-standard single room. "Single occupiers" should not be taken advantage of in this way. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location by Rialto Bridge"
We upgraded by the hotel to Grand Canal front room with balcony. Room was clean and comfortable but small by North American standards. Bathroom is modern but small. Daily breakfast was good with a good selection. Staff was friendly and courteous. I would book them again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very good location and great staff/facilities"
Impressed with the cleanliness of this boutique hotel. Rooms are small but comfortable. Buffet breakfast is very good and the staff are incredibly helpful and friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was delightful and the staff very helpful and polite. It was a great location for all the attractions in Venice. At times the hotel was a little noisy but the rooms were comfortable if a little basic, but good value.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Authentic Venice decor, near Rialto bridge"
We traveled from Montreal, and stayed for 3 days in a 4 bed bedroom, and got 4 single beds. Room was small, but this is normal for Europe, and specially Venice. It’s relatively comfortable, clean, good breakfast, air conditioned, safe naborhood, well located to walk all over Venice. Note that there are no elevators and we were on the 4th floor, which […] was ok for us, but may not be for others. Our only complaint is that WiFi only worked 1 day out of 3, and front desk attitude was ok but not excellent. We also purchased the vaporetto pass which allowed us to travel by boat and visits different islands (Murano, Burano and San Lazzaro), and a bus ride to the airport. In short we liked the Hotel and Venice. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"An adequate hotel in a good location."
The rooms were small. Some had inadequate windows and views. The en suite facities were good, but rather small. There was no lift and our room was on the fourth floor. (Hard work for elderly people or those with restricted mobility.)There is no hotel bar or dining room. (There are plenty of other restaurants and bars nearby.)The location is good, on […] the canal near the Rialto bridge. Readily accessible by water taxi. (Private water taxis from the Airport are not cheap!) Room prices seem fair by the standards of the city: Venice is expensive! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We paid for a superior room, which was valid on the basis that the normal rooms were smaller and had windows that opened onto internal areas - not courtyards, just small ventilation shafts. Our windows opened onto a narrow alley, but not a particularly attractive one. The bed was hard, as were the pillows. On the other hand, the location was excellent, […] just yards from the Rialto Bridge, the staff were very helpful and polite, the breakfasts were more than adequate with a good range of choice and reasonable quality.

"A great location."
Very close to the Rialto Bridge and Market. There are good back-street bars & restaurants around the corner. I cannot comment on the double rooms as I stayed in a single. It was quite small and without facilities for making hot drinks. The bathroom was well maintained but the bath itself was tiny. Some of the staff on the desk did not seem to have any […] interest in their jobs and were off-hand at times. On one occasion the chap was too busy on his private phone to answer my greeting. If you are able to cope with minor disappointments it is a great spot to enjoy a wonderful City. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The staff are totally unhelpful and rude. This place is located in the most crowded tourist area in the city... so they don't care if they have your business ever again because they know they'll get others. The rooms are more like prison cells, and the hotel has an foul odor. The room is so unpleasant that I will never NEVER stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

The hotel was clean and in good location. But there is no elevator, and there are no vegetables in breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very conveniently Located BUT....."
Marconi is very conveniently located, just 2nd ferry stop from the terminal. BUT, the ferry guys will tell you that its the 2nd stop, but some said 3rd stop. and the local will tell you no, its the 2nd. Well, we traveled half of Venice (well, almost) with 3 huge luggages, wiggling in the small alley to because I listen to the boat man, who said alight […] at 3rd stop. Grrr... To cut the story short, we were exhausted by the time we reach the hotel, you have to look carefully for the Name of the hotel, its along a stretch of restaurants. Not very friendly staff, of coz (but the local there were quite helpful though) but the worse part is, they do not have a lift... we had to climb 4 level up with the luggages.... They didnt give us the river facing room as agreed even though the occupany rate was low (we didnt bother asking anyway). All these were enough to kill our mood and we slept through the afternoon after that. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Good hotel right in the centre of Venice, Functional with old venetian charm. Would benefit from kettle, tea, coffee making facilities in room. Good value for money for time of booking and great to have the offer of a family room.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Location, location and not much else."
The location is excellent - on the Grand Canal just near the Rialto bridge. This is also one of the few spots where you can dine on the edge of the Grand Canal. There are a number of fine restaurants right outside the hotel door. It's the location you are paying for. The hotel itself is tired, needs better decoration, needs maintenance and needs better […] management of the staff. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Ideal location, just steps to the Rialto Bridge. Our room on arrival was very small but we upgraded and had a lovely room, so would ask about size of room but otherwise we had a wonderful stay. The staff was helpful and friendly and no language issues at all. 10 minute water taxi to train station and easy walking distace to St. Mark's and anywhere else […] we wanted to go. Breakfast was good. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Wonderful location on the Grand Canal next to the Rialto bridge and the brilliant, atmospheric market; also a well-furnished room. For the high price, though, you would expect a bar, a lounge, room service; you would NOT expect a tiny room that looks out on a dark alley (you could just about glimpse a narrow strip of blue sky if you got right up to […] the window and twisted your head upwards) and which therefore felt like a gloomy cell. When we checked out, the receptionist didn't ask us if we'd enjoyed our stay at the hotel. No doubt she knew what the answer would be. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"What a mistake"
I think I had the smallest room available . I was on my own and I felt because of this I was put anywhere, I was given no help with my luggage a woman on her own had to struggle up the stairs. Disappointed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Rialto"
Enjoyed the stay - would suggest anyone staying at this hotel to use the water bus stops on the same side of the canal as the hotel rather than the Rialto stop on the other side - especially when arriving with heavy luggage. Hauling luggage over the Rialto bridge not a good idea.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, be aware some staff quite surly!"
Room clean, toilet/bathroom clean. Breakfast area clean. Some staff not very helpful, would not let us use computer or help us check in on line for departure flights! Wanted to charge us 5 euros. Breakfast staff very surly all weekend. Guests were noisy we were in a room above the breakfast room & staff were slamming crockery from 0700 onwards! Scrapping […] chairs & furniture. The positive side was location of hotel very good, would recommend being away from kitchen end. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Marconi hotel venice"
This hotel is next to the famous rialto bridge a land mark in venice and it is right in the middle of the grand canel so it is ideal for walking the length and breast of venice with a central location.The beds are on the small side so if your are a large or tall person you may wish to find a diffrent hotel.The staff where ok,and faxed 7 pages to london […] for me free of charge.There are no lifts in the hotel so if like me you suffer from a bad back and are on the 3rd floor you may need to book a 1st floor room.The hotel is oppersite the public boat taxi transferr station and for a fee of 15 euros per person will take you back to the airport which takes 45 mins.Overall i would stay at this hotel again but more for its location.

"Hotel Marconi, Venice"
Stunning perfect location. Breakfast is superb. Room cleaned every day, spotless. Room was through the breakfast room and hard to find at first. Ground floor next to small street so quite noisy in the early mornings but adequate and still good value-for-money. Overall very happy with the hotel. Not one bad thing to say.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Venice March 2012"
The central location is superb near to the vaporetto and many restaurants. However the weather was particularly hot for the time of year ( end of March) and the air con did not work as they do not switch it on until summer. We had to sleep with the windows open which was very noisy. Ok Venice effectively shuts down fairly early but the restaurants below […] had to clear up at night and set up again in the morning hence all the noise at just the wrong times. Also near the water means mozzies and they bite me incessently so I always travel with all precautions but still they got me. A plus point was the hotel did provide a plug in repelent which did supplement my own. The breakfast was good but not the cooked stuff which was unappetising and poor quality. That said the bread rolls etc were fresh and there was a good choice of juice, fruit and jams. The coffee was good which is always a bonus. The rooms were not the biggest but were adequate and there was sufficient room to put things. The bathroom was clean and functional with an adequate supply of towels. The building is old, it is after all, Venice so no real complaints. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel Marconi recommended."
Great central location which was the main reason for choosing this hotel. Good buffet breakfast which is on until 10am everyday. The room wasn't huge but perfectly adequate with a clean bathroom and plenty of wardrobe space with a safe. Nice to have minibar & fridge (no tea & coffee, we took travel kettle). Hotel is an old building which has character […] ie wooden shutters, traditional concrete floors. The only downside is that is can be noisy for light sleepers - I was woken by showering next door and people scraping chairs across the floor in the room below. We would stay here again but ask not to have the room directly above the breakfast room. Overall, good value hotel for a city break when you're out & about all day, recommended.

"Hotellage super zentral."
Wir waren im November in Venedig und hatten schon Bedenken, dass wir frieren werden, da ja in Italien einige Hotels ohne Heizung ausgestattet sind. Das ist im Marconi nicht der Fall. Es war hier hier alles gut beheizt und sehr sauber. Aufgrund der Lage direkt an der Rialto-Brücke kann man vieles zu Fuß unternehmen, z.B. Fischmarkt, Markusplatz etc. […] Die Bootshaltestelle ist direkt gegenüber. So kann man schon vom Flughafen aus direkt mit dem Boot das Hotel ansteuern für nur 15 € und so ziemlich jede Linie hält an der Rialto-Brücke. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Mon avis sur séjour Venise"
Mon expérience a été dans l'ensemble réussie. L' hôtel est très bien situé sur une rive du Grand Canal à proximité du Pont de Rialto. Le personnel qui travaille le week end dans le restaurant (petit déjeuner) était plus chaleureux que la personne qui était présente en semaine. A part un petit souci avec le compte qu'il m'a été demandé de régler au moment […] du départ (consommations du mini bar et taxe) - les tarifs étant exposés dans la chambre, j'avais pu faire mon total avant et la somme qui m'a été réclamée était un peu supérieure à ce que j'avais calculé - tout s'est déroulé suivant mes attentes. Bon hôtel à recommander. Je regrette de ne pas avoir eu une chambre donnant sur le Pont du Rialto mais il aurait fallut payer plus cher... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Vi ankommer sent til hotellet, og overraskes og skuffes først af værelset ikke stemmer overens med det vi har booket, senere opdager vi at der nok blot er pyntet i beskrivelsen af hotel og værelse på hotels.com siden. Værelset er væsentlig mindre end det anførte, men hotel manageren forsikrede os at vi havde det største værelse overhovedet muligt.

"Agradável experiência em Veneza..."
Gostamos muito do hotel Marconi. Muito bem localizado (próximo à ponte Rialto), dá acesso tanto de barco quanto a pé aos principais pontos de Veneza. O único inconveniente é atravessar a ponte com as malas, visto que o barco deixa na outra margem. Dica: se puder, leve uma mala pequena apenas com as roupas que vai usar na estadia em Veneza e deixe o […] restante no carro ou em algum locker na estação. O hotel é antigo, porém bem cuidado e muito limpo. Não tem elevador! Tivemos que subir quatro andares de escada, mas valeu a pena pelo quarto, que era super tranquilo e com bom espaço. Serviço de quarto muito bem feito. O café da manhã é muito bom, com boa variedade de pães, frios, frutas, geleias, doces, yogurt e sucos. Os garçons atendem muito bem. A sala de café da manhã também é bem clássica e bonita. O staff é muito prestativo e cordial. Há duas mesas na frente do hotel e com vista para o canal e saída de gondolas para os hóspedes apreciarem qualquer momento do dia ou noite. O preço não é barato, mas hospedar-se na cidade é sempre mais caro mesmo, entretanto o retorno é bem a altura de quem procura um bom retorno. Recomendo! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"hôtel très bien situé, vieillot mais charmant"
Hotel excellemment bien situé, tout près du Rialto et pas trop près de la place Sain Marc et de son barnum. Chambres très propres, accueil courtois. Seul bémol de taille : très bruyant (cloisons très fines, plomberies, livraison, etc).Genuine Expedia guest review
Rialto no es solo un icono sino el paso obligado para cruzar hacia San Marcos. El hotel está justo al lado, entre bellos restaurantes, terrazas y góndolas. Así, es fácil de encontrar y fácil volver a la estación, y al estar en medio es perfecto para recorrer Venecia y volver. Hay infinidad de sitios para comer alrededor, para todos los bolsillos. Como […] todo en Venecia, el hotel conserva el estilo original acorde con su entorno, lo que le da su personalidad. Por eso el cliente debe esperar encontrar unas instalaciones y habitaciones anticuadas y pequeñas. El cuarto de baño era bastante amplio y limpio. Los colchones eran cómodos. Cumple su cometido. El desayuno era muy normal pero abundante. El café era americano (de filtro, en jarra), algo que no hemos encontrado en ninguno de los otros hoteles de Italia en los que hemos estado. No hay que llevarse a engaños. Este hotel fuera de Venecia sería inviable. Pero por su situación, su carisma y su relación calidad-precio es recomendable para una estancia corta. La sugerencia es que renovando un poco el hotel acentuando todo lo bello y antiguo que posee sería una maravilla. Pero entonces seguramente no tendría esos precios. Al menos recomiendo arreglar y pintar la fachada principal y el nombre. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Schlicht weg eine Unverschaemtheit!"
Schon bevor man eintritt in dieses Hotel ist man von stinkenden Geruechen umgeben. Personal am Empfang eusserst nett und Zuvorkommend. Aber dann!! Zimmer im hintersten Winkel mit Ausblick zur oefendlichen Toilette. Hellhoerig dass mann fast den Athem des Nachtbarmieters hoert. Standiges Turen knallen und geschurre von Stuehlen der Putzkollonne. Irgend […] ein Brummton auf dem Gang alle 5 Minuten liessen mich kein Auge in der Nacht zumachen. Ab 5.00 morgens ging das Geknalle der Tueren wieder los. Fruehstueck hat mich an alte Mitropagasteatten der vergangenen DDR erinnert. Mehr nicht dazu. Fuer satte 180 Euro die Nacht ein "echtes Erlebniss" UNBEDINGT MEIDEN!!!
