friendly staffPosted 27-Aug-2014
Pros: Great location, charming historical hotel, and the lovely staff.
Cons: A little more attention could be paid to the cleaning - a clump of hair, not ours, was left in the corner of the bathroom. Being picky.
Location: Very close to the Grand Canal, restaurants, shops, and also to the St Luccia station for easy transport around Italy.
We were made very welcome by the friendly, helpful staff at Hotel Abbazia. The room, although very small, was comfortable and clean and the hotel garden and reception areas were charming places for an evening drink. The location, near the St Luccia railway station, and metres away from the Grand Canal, was very convenient. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Very conveniently situated hotel.Posted 23-Aug-2014
Pros: As above - most things.
Cons: A full length mirror in the bedroom. The bar opening hours were a little random.
Location: As above.
The Hotel Abbazia is a stone's throw from the main bus and train station and very close to the water bus. It's down a side alley and so is very quiet but still very close to all the attractions. The hotel itself is very old and quaint, full of character, rooms have been very sympathetically decorated. All very clean. As far as I'm aware, there isn't a lift but the porter is on hand to lug suitcases up the stairs. Beds very comfy, bathrooms have all you need. Only a tiny gripe - the bedroom could do with a full length mirror - ours didn't have one at all except for a small one in the bathroom - not enough for two ladies! Staff couldn't do enough for us - very helpful and very knowledgeable about water bus routes etc. Overall very pleased, would return.

Nice hotel, great staffPosted 19-Aug-2014
Pros: Staff and location and included breakfast, which was about the same as what other hotels offered.
Cons: The beds and pillows. There seemed to be no padding on our bed at all, I thought it was a box spring at first. The pillows are a bit hard too.
Location: right by the train station, many water bus stations, shopping and dining. You can get to pretty much anywhere in Venice from this hotel via waterbus.
The hotel did leave a little to be desired, but the staff and location make up for it! The staff was super friendly and it was right around the corner from the train station. Trust me, you will want something close to the train station. The roads are very narrow and there are tons of bridges to go across and hauling around luggage would make this very difficult.

Good hotel for airportPosted 13-Aug-2014
Pros: location for airport
Cons: Decoration a bit dated in style
Location: Only airport nearby
Free breakfast and transfer to airport. On main road, bus stop not faraway. A long way out of city for sites. taxi ride only cost 17 euro's from city centre. Very helpful staff

Simple but great location and fantastic staff.Posted 9-Aug-2014
Pros: Staff and breakfast
Cons: Rooms quite old fashioned but don't worry they are fine
Location: on the grandcanal with all of venice's attractions and a waterbus and gondola stop nearby
Venice isn't cheap that's for sure and this is quite a simple hotel for what we paid but it is central right on the grand canal and easily accessible on foot (but if you have a heavy case take the water bus rather than carry it over the bridge) The thing that makes this hotel as well as the good continental breakfast, period sitting room and tranquil garden, is the staff. All of whom were brilliant but one of whom - Mirko - stood out for being really helpful giving us great advice and saving us money and effort before during and after our stay.

We were a group of 13 and the hotel was wonderful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful. They went out of their way for us, made wonderful restaurant recommendations and arranged transportation for us. I couldn't have been more pleased and we are definitely looking forward to returning to Venice and the Hotel Abazzia!

Lovely hotel near Santa LuciaPosted 7-Aug-2014
The Hotel Abbazia was one of our favorite hotels in our recent trip to Italy. It is perfectly located by the Santa Lucia train station, yet it is a very peaceful and quiet hotel. It is easy to reach on foot with your luggage as there are no bridges to cross from the train station. The breakfast was amazing with a great deal of variety, including meats and cheeses, fabulous pastries, eggs, all kinds of juices and other delicacies. Everyone at the reception desk was friendly, helpful and spoke many languages. Reaching the various sites of Venice is easy by either walking or catching the Vaporetti close by. The beds in the room were excellent and the bathroom was very modern and comfortable. We highly recommend this hotel and would return for another visit.

Charming hotel beside the grand canal .Posted 5-Aug-2014
Hotel was beside the water taxi stop, the bus and train station. Staff were charming and helpful. Rooms clean, comfortable and one of ours overlooked the courtyard. Should be 4 star.
