              Nice quiet hotel near the train station”

              I felt that I have made an excellent choice to stay at this hotel for various reasons. The main reason is because it's very close to the train station. This is really the deal breaker since Venice has plenty of bridges to cross and it's very hard to drag your luggage up and down the bridges and along the uneven pavements. However it only takes one crossing at the Scalzi Bridge from the station to the hotel. For other hotels, you would have to board the vaporetto with your luggage amidst the packed passengers. Second reason: it's close to the vaporetto stations Ferrovia and Piazzale Roma. So it's very convenient to ride the vaporettos and the buses. (the Gondola is near too). The hotel room is nice and comfy with a little view. Buffet breakfast is good but no hot items. We just settled with boiled eggs and cereals. There's also a terrace seating outside. The check-in staff was very helpful in providing local info. One note: you have to pay cash during checkout for the occupancy tax.

              Only cold food in the breakfast buffet, very limited choice. Our room is big but with a linear bathroom and water pressure is not good. Our sons’ room is smaller but with a spacious and modern bathroom. Reception is very helpful. Location near main bus station and waterbus stop, easy to find.

              Great location”

              Great proximity to the train station, practically across the canal. So glad I booked here instead of closer to St. Marks Square, would've been a pain to lug my bags all that way. We only had to cross 3 bridges from the train station. Its a nice and quite canal, some restaurants nearby. We booked a canal room and there's little traffic that goes by which is nice. Its madness and loud if you book by the grand canal. Only problem was that our toilet was leaking water by the base, not a big deal for 1 night.

              The hotel is clean and well-designed with its interior furnishing. I am so impressed by its space and the quality of the room. On top of that, the staff are really friendly, patient and helpful. I am especially thankful to Alberto for his willingness to go the extra mile to serve us. The breakfast venue has a beautiful garden to add on to the entire experience. I highly recommend Gardena Hotel in Venice.

              It’s really near the train station. It’s opposite the train station, and we had to cross a bridge. As per in Venice, there are many bridges and it’s common to cross bridges. We had the best room with nice view! However, the blanket was so thin and our beds were quite hard in our opinions. Then again, different people have different perspectives. However, there was no toothbrush and toothpaste and bathroom slippers. Hence, if these matters to the travellers, they should bring their own. Our towel was stained and we had to bring it down to the reception to get it changed. On the second day, the person didn’t give us bottled water after Housekeeping. It didn’t really bother us as we bought our own bottle. The lobby is spacious and nice! Helpful receptionist, special mention of Alexandre, who was exceptionally helpful and cheerful! We enjoyed the simple breakfast. The lady serving us coffee and tea was great! She’s so cheerful and she’s always so prompt in clearing our plates. The toilet is clean. It took us about 30 minutes to walk to San Marco, which was expected. We walked much in Venice, but we weren’t tired and bored because there are so many shops on the way.

              Lovely place just a few minutes away from the train station.”

              Upon check in we were greeted warmly, and also given a nice place for a lunch recommendation. We booked the superior canal view which was great: room was clean, toilet and shower was separated, and view was lovely. The only hiccup was is that Google maps (which we relied on a bit in venice) wouldn't direct us to the hotel. Location is correct, but directions went to bus station, so upon arriving look for the hotel directly. (Funnily enough, Google maps location is correct. Just directions was off.) It's at the corner from the main canal to a smaller canal.

              Ideal location”

              We stayed on the top floor - with a view of the courtyard which was pleasant but of course we could have paid extra for the canal view. + location was perfect - we took the express bus from Marco Polo airport at around 11:30pm and arrived at Piazzale Roma at 11:50pm - from there it took a 5-10min walk to the hotel and so saved hiking throughout Venice pathways with luggage as well as any water taxis. + Breakfast was simple but filling + Staff were very helpful and attentive to us. + Small hidden gem of a bar - Arcicchetti Bakaro 1min walk where you can order (v. cheap) drinks and sit on the steps of the canal with a view of all the lights bouncing off the water at night. 100% would recommend to anyone wanting to stay in Venice

              Excellent Choice!”

              We had never been to Venice and were looking for a hotel that would fit our budget, be in a great location, and meet our expectations as to cleanliness and safety. Hotel Gardena did it all! We will certainly stay there next time we visit Venice. Located in a perfect location—just off the Grand Canal (could see it out my window); across the Grand Canal from THE train station; a 5-10 minute walk from the bus station that takes you to the airport; and just minutes from the water transportation system (which EVERYONE uses when they visit Venice). Add to that the room was EXCEPTIONALLY clean; air conditioned (a must!); had an excellent European breakfast that you could enjoy with a cappuccino each morning outside in their courtyard, if you so desired; and their Staff was VERY helpful in showing you sites to see—getting the most out of your Venice experience. When you are picking a hotel from hundreds on the Internet, it’s always good to arrive and have your spouse say “excellent!”

              Fantastic boutique hotel with great location and excellent value for money”

              We had a very pleasant stay at Hotel Gardena. The hotel is well decorated and has a small restaurant on the ground floor which serves a lovely continental breakfast. There is a seating area on the outside where you can enjoy your meal when the weather is good. There is also a semi-private sitting area on the ground floor which we found useful as a waiting area after checkout. They also have a secure area to store luggage. We chose this hotel based on its proximity to the train station, water bus and Piazalle Roma for the airport bus. Ideal if you have plenty luggage but 15 mins walk to most sites. The rooms are exquisitely decorated in typical Venetian style which was a must for me. We stayed in Room 203 which had views of the Grand Canal and a small side canal. Also a must when choosing a place in Venice. The staff were extremely helpful and welcoming. I regret that I did not take their names but both gentlemen who worked the front desk during our stay are deserving of mention.

              One of the challenges of visiting Venice, is finding your way around. This hotel is simple to find—just across the Grand Canal from the train station and close to the bus station! Exceptionally clean, excellent breakfast in an outside courtyard (if you like) and very helpful Staff. We will stay here next time!

              Not worth it”

              We stayed at room 101, the drainage of the shower was blocked, after telling staff, situation didn’t change for the 2nd night. Also the heater of the bathroom was not working and it was full of water on it so we can’t hang towel at all. Room is small and not convenient for 2 ppl stay. Not recommend

              Staff were lovely and made this hotel experience great. We got a free upgrade which was lovely. ”

              The location was very convenient if you arrive by train and meant we didn’t need to organise any transportation. It was about a half hour to 40 minute walk to the main centre, and there are many amenities around if you want to stay close by.

              Good location”

              A hotel that is good if you are travelling in by train as it is literally a 5 minute walk. But we found it great for exploring the well known sights of St marks Square and the rialto as well as the other quieter parts of Venice.

              Hotel was lovely and close to the train station. Check in was swift despite being 22:00. Room was clean and very traditional, bathroom was lovely. Breakfast options were limited but satisfactory. Really helpful staff. Advised to go on a boat trip to the other islands which we brought through reception and was a great day. Able to leave bags at the hotel on check out and collect later that day.

              WONDERFUL!! ”

              WONDERFUL! Excellent site and location, great view, clean and beautiful rooms. My only comment to improve is breakfast. They must add options to order separate and scrambled. Godo the rest was excellent.
