      Very good7.2
      Good location, lovely linensLa Forcola is within walking distance of the Piazzale Roma, though it's a hassle with luggage we learned. There are no airport transfers available from the hotel, nor water taxis. So when we left, the hotel called a porter service to collect our luggage and take it to Ple. Roma. (20 euro), to the airport bus. Our room on the third floor was small with a balcony overlooking a canal. Our sheets were lovely pressed cotton, and our towels, though small, were plush. Venice was hot and humid and our AC was weak. At night we opened the balcony doors and the fresh air cooled us down. The Cannaregio area feels more like a neighborhood with a variety of less expensive shops/merchandise, osterias, gelaterias, and even grocery stores as compared to the San Marco area. There are street musicians and touristy kiosks and what seems like "locals" milling about. What it lacks in big piazzas, pricey retail stores and clean streets, it makes up for in this local charm and color.

      Conveniently located near the train station

      Other than the hotel having a convenient location and supposedly value for money, we were quite disappointed with our stay. Not clean - On our first night, we had 2 mini-centipede like insects on the walls which we had to dispose of. Fortunately, they were quite slow which made it quite easy. Expect a basic breakfast - Croissants, bread and cereals with milk, preserved peaches and coffee were offered. On this occasion, we found ourselves willing to pay more for a hotel with better overall service.

      A pleasant stay overall, easy check in, nice breakfast, love the coffee machine, mostly friendly staff except for one who has no social skills (you know who i mean), surely i am not the only one who feel that way. anyway, clean room, old toilet but clean. easily walkable to all sites. overall value for money for short stay.

      Location

      Great location. 10 min walk from the train station. Various shops and restaurants nearby. Hotel staff are friendly enough but probably wouldn't go out of their way to help you. Small rooms but adequate and clean. Breakfast is typical continental, low on proteins. If we travel to Venice again, we are open to try other hotels.

      There is a lift in the hotel

      everyone need to keep key in receiption before you go out. this is my experience: 1. shower area - it's a square area with 2 sliding doors at the corner, but one of the sliding door missing and getting wet when taking shower. 2. very important that visitor cannot go upstair or stay in your room due to security reason. if you've a friend visit you, he/she cannot go to your room and only can stay / meet in the restaurant (near the receiption) --- because hotel (the boss) afraid the outsiders will stay or take shower in your room. this is not convenience for me since i've a friend visit me during my stayed.

      nil

      A nice hotel to stay, strategic location for train/jetty and casino is nearby. there is a mini market few doors away. Find it odd when the staff actually locked the door when they are away for short while. Friendly staff at reception, nice breakfast, although the rate is slightly on the high side. would recommend for friends and family if budget is not a concern. :D

      near the Marcuola boat station, which is just two stops from the central train station
      Very small shower room

      Hotel is nice and convenience, not too far from the boat station. However, room and bathroom is very small. Breakfast is very minimal and not much choices. Safety is seen in this hotel as the staff at the counter will check if you walk into the hotel to the elevator without asking for room key. Walking from hotel to attractive place is not a problem at all, as it is so convenience and there're a few estaurant nearby the hotel, which provide good foods.
