Hotel Messner, Venice
Never stay here again.
I will never stay here again. The hotel's front desk is not in the same building, but this fact is not indicated on their website and the signage at the hotel is very vague. The hotel common areas are not air-conditioned, so by the time we walked every floor of the hotel looking for the front desk, we were hot, sweaty and frustrated. We repeatedly tried to reach the front desk through an intercom, but it took a dozen or more attempts before they finally responded. Fortunately, the hostess that night was exceptionally nice (she had only been working for the hotel about a week), other staff we interacted with the remainder of our stay seemed to be apathetic about everything. After accessing our room we found thick layers of dust on top of the amoire, baseboards, and bathroom cabinet. The shower was unrealistically small and difficult to use. The only good thing about the hotel is that it is in Venice so the experience of the city made up for the poor quality of the hotel.

Very cute hotel, shower was incredibly small though. Shutters on the windows which made for an authentic feel in Italy. Restaurant connect which is wonderful. Luggage area did not feel like the most safe, left in a room with no supervision before able to check in. Received a coupon for a free gondola to cross the canal. Very nice and helpful staff.

Would highly NOT recommend
We were not happy with our stay at all. The main problem was that the shower head and fixture were broken. The shower head was attached to a water hose which had a big Crack on it, only showing a small portion of the water to actually come out of the shower head. The rest all poured out of the hose, making it really hard to actually rinse off. The shower head is also attached to a bar with the intention that the shower head being able to be lowered or raised depending on your heighth. This was also broken leaving the shower head at 5' high. When I mentioned these issues to the front desk they simply said sorry with no offer of any discount or anything else to make up for the problem. The desk was also literally falling apart, as well as chunks of the carpet missing. Overall was not impressed with this place at all.

Great for a short stay
Sevice at Hotel Messber was fantastic! They were happy to help me navigate and store my baggage before and after check out. Downside was the room I stayed in was in a much less nicer building than the main hotel and restaurant. Between Hotel Messner check-in and the building hosting the rooms there is a fantastic hotel bistro! Other than that there is not much to eat outside and 10 minute walk. The room was very moist due to lack of air circulation and it was a little dirty but this was a good stay for a one night trip. They offer a one time gondola across to the main square (Saint Marco’s Basilica/Doge’s Palace.)
