    Bring your own towels!

    by

    This is a great place to stay in the off-season, especially if you get a good deal (we stayed in a twin room for 40 Euro per night for the room). Breakfast is included, but expect it to be nearly all pre-packaged, and the bread rolls to be stale some mornings! The orange juice and coffee are good though.

    The location is fantastic, easy walk to Zattere (line 82) and Accademia (line 1) Vaporetto stops, and rooms look out onto the Giudecca Canal. It is in a quiet district, and yet only 15 minutes walk from San Marco and 5 minutes from the Grand Canal.

    As for the rooms themselves, our twin room was fairly spacious, with a wardrobe, desk, bedside cabinets, and towel rail. However you would be advised to bring a towel, as the towels provided are awful - small, thin, non-absorbent! Pillows are also a little hard if you are sensitive to that sort of thing. The bathrooms are shared, and can get a little slippery, as there are no shower curtains and so water gets everywhere (we used one of their crappy towels as a bathmat). Because we stayed here in early December there were not many other guests staying, so the bathroom was pretty much our own. This is a good time to visit Venice, as there are not nearly as many tourists about, and the weather is pleasant (rooms in Seguso might get rather hot in summer - there are no fans in the rooms, but for our winter stay the radiator kept us nice and toasty at night).

    All and all a good place to stay if you are looking for a good location and don't expect luxury!

    Unique Quality: Great views! Antiques in the rooms and hallways. Nice staff. Good location. Clean.

    Directions: Catch Vaporetto (water bus) line 82 and get off at Zattere. Turn right and walk less than 5 minutes. Pensione Seguso is just before the next bridge (it is on the left, set back a little from the street).

    Pensione Seguso

    The location is great. Very close to the Ponte dell'Accedamia and a decent walk to Piazza San Marco. There are two easy vaporetti stops close by, Zattere and Accademia. The owner was very nice and helpful. You can have a room with or without a bathroom. We had a wonderful room with our own bathroom overlooking the canal. The bathroom was a decent size and and a good shower with doors. The furnishings were antique and comfortable. Unfortunately I couldn't run my hair dryer without blowing the fuses in our room. One of the shared bathrooms had a hairdryer but it was terrible.

    Breakfast was included in the price and for an extra fee you could have dinner as well. After a week of going out to restaurants we decided to try it. Dinner consisted of two or three courses followed by dessert. Some were good and some were just okay. But worth the price overall. The breakfast is served in the dining area. During our orientation the concierge told us we could have breakfast in our room or in the dining area. We asked for breakfast in our room on our last day and we were charged for room service. Our hotel in Rome brought breakfast to our room as a complimentary service.

    There were some other things we didn't like about the hotel. Although the owner was friendly and very helpful the rest of the staff seemed....disinterested. In other words if the owner wasn't around the staff at the front desk acted as though we were a bother. Not exactly rude but not pleasant either.

    Also the canal next to the hotel was rather busy and noisy. I woke up to the sound of cargo being unloaded underneath our window. Nothing that a pair of earplugs wouldn't solve but something to be aware of if you're sensitive to noise. And you should probably close your windows at night. We woke up one morning with mosquito bites on our faces (see warning/danger tip).

    Overall I enjoyed my stay though I'm not sure I would go back.

    Pensione Seguso

    The Pensione Seguso is a small, long-established, old-fahioned, family-run, two-star hotel. The floors are all marble and the rooms are furnished with family antiques, which give the place a certain flair but do not quite match up to modern standards.

    The location is great, next to Accademia gallery and about 15 mins. walk to St. Marks square. The hotel is clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel also has a lift.

    I stayed in Pensione Seguso in May 2006 in a single room with shared shower and toilet on the fourth floor (room 48). I paid EUR 110 a night including breakfast, which is quite expensive but rather typical of Venice. Breakfast is served from 08:00 to 10:00 and consists of one small bottle of juice, tea or coffee, one fresh roll and pre-packaged everything else.

    The room had no TV and no air conditioning. The walls are quite thin. The room had a wash basin and mirror. The towels, however, do not deserve the name; they are made of thin cotton and are tiny.

    The antique bed was made for customers of the period. I could just about fit into it, with my head touching the headboard and my feet touching the footboard. It sagged wickedly in the middle.
    There was no mini-bar (and hence no fridge to cool your own drinks) in the room. The room phones have a data jack, but there is no WLAN (neither free nor or pay for) in the hotel.

    The shared bathroom in the corridor contained a bath with a shower attachment and a toilet. There is no shower curtain, which means the marble floor inevitably becomes flooded and extremely slippery. The shower hose is too short. You have to turn the hot tap on and let it run for about two minutes for the hot water to circulate up through the system.

    In summary, clean and basic rooms in a good location, but a bit pricey for the facilities on offer.

    Tips: take your own bath towel, hairdryer, kettle for tea-making, power strip, ear plugs, and a pair of sandals for wading in the bathroom.

    Directions: Zattere water bus stop, turn right down the quayside.
    The Seguso is hidden in a recess on the left just before
    the bridge.
