Most recent stay was June 2009. Accomodations were spacious and clean. Basic amenities but satisfactory. Breakfast was meager but tasty. Outstanding convenient location on the Via de Spagna. Less than a 5 minute walk to the train station, vaparetto landing, numerous restaurants and shops. Reception staff very courteous and efficient. Definitely recommend this hotel to anyone arriving by train to venice for a better than average basic tourist hotel.
Unique Quality: Convenient proximity to the train station.
Directions: Walk out of the train station, turn left hotel is on your left in less than a 5 minute walk.
Good location - train station end of Lista di Spagna, a couple of minutes walk from the train station or 10 mins walk from Pizzale Roma bus station (cross the new bridge, turn right and walk past the train station).
Our twin room was at the back of the hotel so not much to see, only a small courtyard but it was nice and quiet. The room was spacious enough for 2 and very clean. There is a free safe in the room and tv with CNN. The bathroom was smallish but very clean.
The breakfast room was large, bright and clean. Breakfast itself was adequate, with rolls, cheese, ham, pastries etc. The hotel will also store your luggage on checkout day if you require, handy if you have a later flight, and the hotel staff we met were friendly and polite.
Overall a good choice and would recommend for easy links to transport. We got a good deal of 90 Euro per night booking through Venere.com

We enjoyed our stay at the Belle Epoque as the rooms were freshly and elegantly appointed, bathrooms marble and just updated with new glass showers and fixtures. This hotel looks the way a hotel in Venice should...ornate furniture and chandeliers everywhere...even the room key had a large red tassel dangling from it. Breakfast was included and offered two fresh juice mixtures every day, meat and cheeses, cereals, a few original breakfast creations which were quite good and my favorite type of espresso/cappuccino/latte/chocolate machine. The Italian-speaking attendants are quick to add a bit of froth and a sprinkling of chocolate or cinnamon to embellish your cup. The views from our rooms were of inner courtyards and not unpleasant, though not outstanding, either. The location is superb if you are traveling by train; just down the street a block or two. Plenty of restaurants and shops right outside your door. Water taxis also conveniently located because of the proximity to the train station. I would definitely stay here the next time.
Unique Quality: As I mentioned, the old-world ornate style abounds in this hotel. There were some very unique features though, as well, such as the glass and chrome elevator built into a glass wall and the very unusual, clear glass (or acrylic) sink filled with water and live goldfish! I will include a picture of this...it is a functioning sink, the fish are swimming inside the glass walls of the bowl.
Directions: Very close to train station (1-2 minute walk) and in the middle of reasonably-priced shopping and great restaurants on the canal.
The Belle Epoque is a three-star hotel located very close to the Venice Train Station and a large water taxi stand. The hotel is gorgeous, clean, and air conditioned. We were thrilled to turn up our AC and take a long, cool shower after a warm train ride from Florence.
The hotel is a renovated palace and because of this feels like a labrynth inside. The lobby is an atrium-style with a small bar and restaurant. The rooms are decoarted in antique furniture, contain wood floors and upper-levels offer exposed wood beam ceilings for a very "old-world Italy" feel.
Each room has satellite TV, phones, safes and hair dryers.
While we did not interact with the staff much during our stay, other people visiting the hotel said they had a great experience setting up tours and finding ways around the city, courtesy of the front-desk staff.
Even in the middle of July, we got a good rate for a weekday ($60 per person, one room) for a last-minute reservation. We used a student online travel site, but I've noticed that on regular travel sites, the hotel is a bit more expensive.
Unique Quality: The lobby restroom has fish in the sink. Staff speaks excellent English.
Directions: Turn left upon exiting the Train Station and proceed about 200m, hotel is on the left.
We are staying 1 night in Venice before catching an early train to Napoli. Any suggestions on somewhere good and close to S.Lucia station much appreciated. Not fussed about cost, just ok and convenient to the station will be fine.
Try the hotel belle epoque/ 100 metres from the station
For a real treat try the 'Ca Pozo. It's very close to the Guglie Bridge. We have stayed at several hotels in Venice before we take possession of an apartment & this one was like no other. It's very modern. You won't be dissapointed!
