Hotel Adua is located in the most convenient part of Venice, in the main street that goes from the Santa Lucia main station to San Marco. For us that was the best feature! We arrived around 9 am went straight there (less than five minutes walking!) left our bags and just took off to visit the city.
When we came back in the afternoon we were given room 114, a very spacious and full of light room with a nice view over Venice roofs and cupolas.
The room was clean, had traditional furniture, an air conditioning unit that also provide warmth in the winter, en suite bathroom with a decent sized shower, and was equipped with soap, shampoo and towels.
The ladies at the desk were friendly and helpful and gave us all the information we needed.
I would suggest to give them a call and book directly as, depending on the time of the year, sometimes it is possible to have a better deal than on the main hotel booking system.
Unique Quality: The location for me was the best thing! they also allow customers to leave their bag up to midnight of check out day. It is perfect as when it is time to head out to the train station the hotel is right on the way there.
There are vaporetto (water taxy) stop very close to the hotel.
The hotel do not offer breakfast but there are several option nearby, the most convenient is the Break restaurant about 2 minutes away in the train station direction and and the most appealing being a traditional caffe reviewed here.
Directions: Exit the train station, after descending the staircase, leave the station behind your back and turn left. walk along the main street, the hotel is less than 5 minutes away on the right.
We knew we would arrive late in the night in Venice and we also knew that we would depart early in the morning 3 days later so we choosed a hotel near Piazzale Roma where the bus from the airport stops.
The hotel is situated at Lista di Spagna (pic 1) a busy street during the day with many tourists as this is the main street from the train station towards San Marco. The building is old enough, in a 18th century Venetian building. There is a place for breakfast (pic 2) on 1st floor where you can have breakfast for 5 euro but we didn’t try because there are many cafes around there.
Hotel Adua has mixed reviews on internet but what you pay is what you get. Venice accommodation is expensive but we stayed here for 65 euros per night for a double room with shared bathroom. The room (pic 3) wasn’t big and had only the basics but it was very clean. There aren’t many rooms at this hotel so the 2 bathrooms on our floor were clean too and never busy. The only problem was that the water wasn’t that warm and it’s something that made me worry if I ever return during winter. No internet connection also but that is something common in Venice. There is an internet café a few steps away though.
Directions: It is only 3’ walk from the train station
Hello! My friends and I have booked a quad room at Hotel Adua in Venice. Reviews of this hotel on Venere are pretty extreme. People either love it or hate it, and it seems to depend on whether they are put in the main hotel, or, as I've seen it referred to, "the infamous building next door." My question is, has anyone stayed at this hotel, would you recommend it, and do you happen to know if the quad room is in the real hotel or the "old, dirty" hotel down the alley? We're not expecting luxury, but we don't want to sleep with things crawling on me either. =) I'd like to know how bad the other building is. Also, on venere it says they take credit cards, but many review said they did not. Is this a common occurrence at smaller hotels? Any insight into this would be appreciated!
If it helps here is their website - http://www.aduahotel.com. Funny, it doesn't mention a quad room. Maybe that's in "the infamous building next door." Email them re credit cards. Check out - www.tripadvisor.com - for more reviews. Maybe an apartment is a better way to go. Check out www.viewsonvenice.com. Good luck.
