"Nice and Friendly"
This hotel was great! Very close to St Marks square. Also the service was excellent. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to get away from the big hotel and want the small comfort feeling.

"Great Location"
Great location near Zaccaria boat stop. If arriving by train, take boat that passes Rialto then San Marco then Zaccaria for a great sightseeing on the way [I forgot whether it was 1 or 2]. Also the Alilaguna boat to airport {1 1/4hr trip 15 Euro per person is across from the hotel. Real easy] Close to San Marco and the walking paths around the main tourist area. No elevator, but the staff immediately brought the bags up. Breakfast was fine and in the attached Restaurant view of the Riva which is the promenade in front of the hotel - good experience.

"Good view, that's about it"
Temperature in the room cannot be regulated other than putting it on of off. We used duct tape on the heat vent, and still sweated at night. So the only option was to turn it off and be cold. ... The sun was coming up into the breakfast room and into the eyes of my wife. Staff refused to drop the curtains to make her comfortable. We got out of the hotel as soon as we could.

"Budget accomodations in a great location"
Great location on the waterfront in San Zaccaria; you don't have to carry your bags up and down any stairs, as the vapporeti stop is only about 50 meters from the hotel entrance. The building is old and the furnishings dated, but the price is about half (or less) of what other nearby hotels charge. The rooms are clean and well kept, but the air conditioning can't contend with the summer heat. Combine this with an abundance of mosquitos and . . . well, expect to be bitten.

This hotel wins on location. Situated close to the San Zaccaria water bus stop, it's easy to access from the airport. We were welcomed warmly by Michele, who speaks excellent English. Our room had been renovated, with traditional styled texted wallpaper, a huge bed, new bedding but too much large and heavy furniture for the size of the room, in particular, a large sort of chest, locked, so not providing any storage. The room isn't actually small, but cluttered with a case stand and a free-standing table in front of the chest. The bathroom is adequate, though hasn't yet been modernised, but it was kept spotlessly clean and supplied with shower gels etc. Breakfast is typical of Italy, better than some: ham, salami, cheese, cereals, rolls, cakes. Coffee is poor and service unfriendly. So, why return? The breakfast room is situated overlooking the Riva degli Schiavoni and therefore the lagoon. It's a very short walk to San Marco. Front rooms (extra cost) have the views, back rooms are quieter. This is essentially a B&B with an entrance hall and restaurant. We aren't in the price bracket for the restaurant, which is one of the more expensive in the area.

"Great location BUT...."
Great location on the Grand Canal, easy access to everything - very close to St. Mark's Square and water taxi's but, a catch 22 because it was a little noisy being so close to merchants and the taxi's? No A/C......and No elevator so, 4 flights of stairs was a bit tiresome.....overall, enjoyed the hotel and would still choose to stay here again if/when we come back to Venice!

The hotel is perfectly siutated, close to the old town, main monuments and vaporettos. Rooms are quite clean and <ell maintained, Breakfast is quite nice in a veranda facing the laguna.Just one point: rooms are on four stages, and there is no lift. So , if you suffer of knees arthrose or articulations sore, it may be a difficulty.

"Close To Water Bus"
We had a nice 3 day stay here. The location is excellent to get to as it is very close to one of the San Marco water bus stations. This is not to be overlooked because I couldn't imagine trying to find a hotel in the middle of Venice with luggage. The neighborhood itself is too busy for me as you're right smack in the middle of San Marco which is packed with tourists. Not a big deal as we would just walk 15-20min to some of the quieter areas of Venice. The room was comfortably sized and I found the bed to very comfortable when compared to other hotels in Italy. The bathroom wasn't great. I'd consider staying here again if I was in Venice.

"First impressions are important"
The person on reception when we arrived was particularly unhelpful and not in the least welcoming. There was no offer to help us with our bags even though we are in our 60's and were on the 3 rd floor - no lift. There was a terrible fish smell through the hotel but fortunately not in our room. When we arrived back from dinner the reception had changed over and the man was very happy, chatty and helpful and changed the whole atmosphere of our stay. Lovely room, great position.

"Der beste Adhoc Urlaub!"
Wir sind spontan nach Venedig gefahren. Wir buchten das Zimmer erst einen Tag vor Abreise. Wir waren schon angenehm überrascht, dass vom Parkhaus gegenüber die Busbootsverbindungen abgehen bis direkt zum Hotel Wildner, absolut bequem. Die Begrüßung vom Chef, auf das Herzlichste. Die Unterbringung in einem schönen, lieblichen Zimmer, einfach super. Vom Hotelpersonal bis zum Reinigungspersonal alle sehr, sehr freundlich. Das Frühstück im Wintergarten bei Sonnenschein und Aussicht auf das Meer, ein einziger Traum. Frühstück perfekt, von allem und genug zur Auswahl. Markusplatz, Seufzerbrücke, Dogenpalast in unmittelbarer Nähe. Das Hotel könnte nicht besser liegen. Von uns gibt es ein sehr großes und dickes Plus.

"窓からの眺めは最高でした"
10年前、ヴェネチアに旅行した際、サンマルコ広場近くの海が見える部屋のホテルに泊まりました。その時の感動的な体験が忘れられず、今回も、前回とは異なるホテルですが、同様の部屋を予約しました。朝も昼も夜も、サンジョルジョマジョーレ教会が窓辺から眼前に見える景色は見ていて飽きることはありませんでした。また、このホテル前にある併設のレストランは、朝は宿泊客しか利用できないのですが、これが素敵な景色を見ながら食事が出来て最高でした。通りすがりの人達の何人かは、宿泊客しか利用されないと知って残念そうに去っていきました。宿の方もフレンドリーで、バスタブ無のシャワーのみでも宿泊代は結構しますが、それに見合うだけの感動を得られます。

"Отличное расположение"
Я не часто отдыхаю в отелях 3*, возможно поэтому отель и наш маленький номерок произвели на меня очень среднее впечатление. Кроме хорошо оформленного фасада здания (цветочницами), большей красоты внутри не увидела. Останавливались на ночь семьей, при самостоятельном путешествии в Венецию. Доп. кровать очень скрипучая, на не просто не возможно было перевернуться с боку на бок. К основной, двухспальной кровати - претензий нет, было очень удобно. Полотенца были чистые, мягкие, но запах был удручающим, просьба к держателям отеля - при стирке не жалейте хоть капли отдушки, в виде кондиционера, тогда намного будет приятней вытираться.

"Fantastic location!"

Location a stone's throw from the vaparetto stop was amazing, and proximity to St Marks Square was also great. View from our 2nd floor family room was beautiful and the room itself was comfortable for a family of 4. Breakfast with a view was also very good quality, and we would highly recommend this hotel.

12/05/15 Travel-Lover3008 Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
This is a very small hotel and quite old, but the location is absolutely stunning... We had the room with the view and it was just perfect... Furniture is very old and worn out somehow, but very clean. You just open the window and the furniture will not bother you at all...! The hotel arranged for us our pick up from the St. Lucia Train Station by water taxi. As soon as we stepped out from the station, the taxi was there with our name on it. While other passengers were queuing to get vaporetto tickets or bargaining for a water taxi, we didn't have to suffer any of that (with all our luggage with us) so I highly recommend you contact the hotel before you go so they arrange this for you and the price was very reasonable. The hotel is very easy to find and go back to anytime of the day. Venice is like a maze for tourists so can't imagine how would it had been if we were to try to find our hotel every day in that maze. Pensione Wildner was just perfect and very centrally located to everything. Vaporetto, Gondola, and water taxis stop right infront of it. Although the area was very busy all day and most of the night, you can barely hear a thing while you were in the room. Windows are very well sealed, and in the winter days, rooms are nice and warm. Last but not least is the restaurant. Breakfast was served in the restaurant for guests only and the view was incredible. We had Dinner there as well on the first night and because it was incredibly delicious, we went there for our second night too... Food was awesome... Mussels for started and Venetian Style Liver are a must try.. Service was amazing.. we weren't able to fight the urge to go back again for dinner on the second night.. and we are glad we did.. Can't wait to go back again one day...

Fantastic location on the water close to St Marks Square. Very convenient when coming from the airport with luggage as it is only a short walk from the ferry stop. The hotel and rooms are very clean and comfortable and staff are friendly and helpful. We did not have one of the best rooms as we were at the back of the property but it was quiet and we had a lovely view of the church. Be warned if you have heavy bags, there is no lift but staff will help take luggage to your room. Continental breakfast is included in the tarrif and this was also good.

We had one of the most enjoyable meals here during our stay in Venice, even though the italian waiter got our order wrong, he forgot my wife's main course. Notable dishes were the oyster, very fresh, seabass fillets and pasta were good too. Desserts were delicious. I have to say that the two Filipino waiters provided us with the best service at a restaurant during our five day stay in Venice.

The hotel is very clean and the staff polite but not as personable as the usual Italian hotel. The hotel is on the water and visitors from tours are constantly passing by the hotel. The breakfast is very basic and does not reflect the quality we received in the in the evening when we ate in the dinning area.

Michael, the owner or manager couldn't have been more helpful. We arrived early for our cruise ship and our room wasn't ready yet. He opened the restaurant and gave us coffee and food to snack on. This hotel is on the main walkway and only about a block away from St Mark's Basilica. Our room was good size for a European hotel and had a nice view out our window. The breakfast was also included with the room and had and excellent and the cover charge included because we were staying at the hotel. Michael also arranged for a water taxi to take us to the airport. This is a 5 story walk up hotel with no lift or elevator.....Michael also carried our bags up to the 3rd floor and wouldn't take a tip! Thanks again Michael.....not sure of the Italian spelling of his name.

Fantastic location and friendly staff. Breakfast was very basic, not hot choices. Room was traditional Venetian style, however a little tired looking. No lift, however they do offer to take cases to rooms. Beds super comfy- had booked for a lagoon suite, but was asked by the hotel if would swap to another room, for a reduction in rate. Regret doing so as the view was the highlight of this hotel.

"What A Room With A View"
10/05/15 JohnBsTrips Essex
Just back from 4 wonderful nights stay at this hotel and enjoyed every minute of it. We did book the 4th floor with views over end of Grand Canal and opening the shutters first thing in morning to see the hussle and bussle of what was going on all around was wonderful. The hotel itself (or Pensione) as it should be called is very clean and welcoming.The staff were all happy to assist and I must give a special mention and Thank You to Michele who was the one who booked our room and taxi transfers via internet for us so getting directly to and from hotel from airport was easy and smooth. He also booked our tours at hotel desk too. Our room which was up 4 flights of stairs ( 71 steps) was of good size and very clean with clean towels and sheets daily. Some people have "moaned" about this hotel, but I cannot really fault it. OK the stairs without a lift may be a problem to some but Venice has stairs/steps everywhere so whats the issue with a few more? The decore in stairway may need updating as some wallpaper marked/torn but I didnt stay there long enough to worry about such minor things. The room is the important issue and that for the price was second to none. I say for the price as rooms in other hotels close by were a lot more expensive for exactly same view and I bet their beds were not as comfy as our one was. The lacation close to St Marks Square about 600 mtrs away is also a bonus. I could go on and on about how wonderful everything about this hotel was but guess the best thing I can say is in answer to Would I go Back and the answer is obviously YESSSS. You could book same hotel without views but if you want to pay a bit more and have memories that will stay with you for ever go for it!

"Affordable Lagoon View in Great Location"
08/16/15 WorldTravelBoy Richmond, VA
Hotel Wildner has a great location on Grand Canal with fantastic views of the lagoon. It's only three blocks from San Marco plaza and docks for the various water buses including the blue line are all within a block. The room is pretty much what you would expect for a moderately priced room in Venice. We had a lagoon view on third floor with three windows which provided great light and scenery. The sofa converted into two beds which fit our family of four well. Our only issue is that the ac had a tough time keeping the room cold to our liking in the hot August heat. The restaurant at the hotel was good and the chef recently opened Local Ristorante nearby which which we ate at and was phenomenal. The hotel staff was very helpful especially Michele. I had a tough time finding a hotel on the Grand Canal near San Marco with a lagoon view room that would accommodate a family of four. All the other hotels required we get two rooms which was not within our budget or practical with two small children. Hotel Wildner charged us a nominal additional amount to cover breakfast for them.
