    Not recommended

    This is truly a 2-star accommodation. It was not easy finding the place even with directions from the hotel. The basic necessities are available but not in good condition: (1) unable to connect to wifi; (2) bed was shaky and one could feel the springs underneath; and (3) the TV could be powered on but there's no TV programmes. Given the price, I would have expected a bit more.

  • 8.0.Very good

    The Al Portico is a no frills kind of guest house located in a side alley of away from the noisy main tourist streets in Venice. The management folks did reach out and provided us very detailed instructions on how to get to the place and we had no trouble finding it despite what others had mentioned in the past. They were also available at the front desk and provided us a map and tips on how to navigate the city. Our bed was comfortable and the room was overall clean and it looked like they had done some renovations recently. This is not a 4-star hotel so do not go in expecting that. They provide you the simple necessities like a fridge, coffee machine and hot water kettle. Our only grumble was the old and very cramped bathroom with a sink so small that it could barely fit a water glass and the shower was also very tiny with a slightly smelly shower curtain. We did enjoy the daily rooftop or "room service" breakfast with fresh toast, croissants, coffee, hot chocolate and tea which was lovely and the hosts were quite friendly. Overall, it was a pleasing experience with a reasonable price point.

    Al Portico Guest House is very close to Venice's Santa Lucia train station - which is absolutely great - and the staff is ever so friendly. However, we received multiple bug bites during our stay at the hotel...

    Amazing location, just around the corner from the main walking routes and close to the boat ‘bus’ places. Really friendly staff gave us lots of helpful tips!

    Shabby

    Tired, not a pleasant setting, shabby. Conveniently located. Reception staff was friendly and helpful. No functional screens on the windows leading to bug bites. The bathroom was small and looked like a dormitory or hospital. Towels were nearly threadbare. Very disappointing.

  • 2.0.Poor

    This hotel is iso difficult to find. Room was tiny with a bathroom smaller than a cruise ship cabin. There is no elevator so had to heave our bags up 3 flights of steep stairs. Mosquitos everywhere and bed so uncomfortable. All in all this is not 4.5 out 5 stars and is expensive for what it is. Super disappointed.
