Great hotel for Venice. But I think the price is too expensive comparitively a french standart Hotel. Small rooms, old fashion decoration, clim too noisy, small bathroom. But the staff of the reception is very kind. All is clean and it´is a very good location. The breakfast is nice except the coffee which is horrible. Although there are some points to review, we keep a positiv souvenir of your hotel, specifically the kindness and efficiency of the reception. We will recommand your name.

Location was great, near to Pizzale Roma and to water transport. Lot of Restaurants nearby. Room was very clean and spacious. Some of the Staff was helpful. We had an early morning flight to catch, and the staff kept a bag of breakfast for us ready to go, which was really appreciated. I wish we had wifi access in the rooms too, it was only available in the lobby, but thats a minor thing. Overall, good experience.

The location of hotel was good- nice walk to rialto bridge and st marks square(30minutes). The food quality was below average. We had 4 days breakfast and two days no cold meat cut and cheese slice because their machine broke and made no effort to get replacement as their was initially not much choice for breakfast.We had to buy breakfast outside for children.

My father and I stayed in Venice for one night, and this hotel's location was perfect for us! Literally 3 minutes walk from the train station. We arrived very early in the morning (5:30 am) on a night train, and the man in reception was very kind, and allowed us to leave our baggage at the hotel until check in time later on (no fee). Breakfast was ample, wi-fi costs money (I think 5 EU for the day), and the room was tiny, as was the bathroom, but very clean. All in all a pleasant stay.

Our flight had been substantially delayed so we arrived at the hotel at approximately 6am. It was a relief to find a Receptionist on duty and to be able to access our room quickly. Given the travel hassles we experienced, it would have been great to have been offered a coffee or even a drink of water. Neither were offered. The hotel was well located - very close to the main train station and a main vaporetto station. The staff were capable and some were pleasant but it was clear that we were just another two tourists - a little politeness, even a smile would have conveyed the impression that we were welcome and our custom valued. The room was fine but the bathroom was extremely small, especially the shower which was minute.

Venice is expensive, so don't expect the same quality as in other cities compared to the price. This hotel is well located, near the train station and Piazzale Roma, but in a very crowded area. For the same price, you can find best service and quietness in Venice. 180€ for a really small room to be refreshed and a low-quality breakfast. I wondered how, in Italy, they could serve us so bad orange juice and coffee. We've even decided to have our breakfast outside the hotel the last morning.

The bathroom was impossible to use because the shower spread water everywhere. The wireless was available only at the lobby area and we had to pay by the hour. I am celiac and even when I informed that the staff refused to offer me more than some biscuits for breakfast, they just told me where I could go to buy bread (but find an address it's not an easy thing to do in Venice!)

Our first stay in Venezia was short but enjoyable. This hotel is just located near the train station: a good way to get here. And also close to one water-bus stop, so it is easy to get any place in Venice from here: also by walking. Room facilities are excellent, though space is limited. Breakfast is very good, though crowded. Aisles are rather long but mirror Venice streets. Staff is very competent and nice. We'll be back.

The hotel was a very well kept hotel, with a pleasent staff and located near the railway station and a short walking distance from Piazzale Roma where the bus from the airport deposits people.

Lo mejor del hotel era su ubicación, muy cerca de Piazzale Roma y con la parada de vaporetto de Ferrovia al lado, también los empleados de recepción eran muy amables y hablaban español. Por lo demás, la relación calidad-precio no se corresponde, ya que es excesivamente caro para lo que te dan; la habitación era pequeñísima y el baño (prefabricado dentro de la habitación) aún más (dos personas no cabían a la vez), además el desayuno también era muy pobre.Eso sí, estaba muy limpio.

Viajé con mi esposo y en general somos bastante adaptables y respetusosos. Desgraciadamente el servicio del hotel fue pésimo desde el recibimiento lo cual nos hizo sentir muy incómodos porque reitero, ambos somos muy decentes y esperamos lo mismo de cualquier servicio. Nos tocaron dos recepcionistas bastante groseras y prepotentes. La habitación sin duda no fue la mejor del hotel y el segundo día no salió agua caliente y al preguntar en el front desk si habría alguna solución la recepcionista se río por hacerle preguntas estúpidas. Nos encontramos con dos cubanas que copartieron nuestra opinión al respecto del mal trato de la gente. Me parece que se pueden encontrar hoteles con mucha más calidad en el servicio por 150 euros y sin duda que ello alivianaría cualquier deficiencia de la instalación. Es una lástima que practiquen el servicio a cliente con la calidad y el respeto que cualquier visitante o persona merece porque quedan bastante mal!!

Hotel Nazionale was exactly what we expected it to be, and even a little better. The room we stayed in was tight on space, but it had a lovely view over a rear courtyard garden and the city in the distance. I was surprised to find that there was no Internet point available in the lobby, as was advertised. I had to go across the street and pay for one instead.

This is an excellent hotel choice for Venice. The price is excellent. The location is close the Roma (Buses) and Ferrovia (train station). The is an internet cafe across the street. Along Spagna the main route to the Rialto is easy. Just follow the signs. The staff at the hotel were excellent! Service was excellent. I had a reservation for one night, but ended up staying additional nights. I even returned to Venice later in the trip and stayed at the Nazionale again. Unless you want a lot of glitz and glamour, this is a great place to stay.

For our European trip this hotel was the most expensive and the least liked. But Venice on a whole is too expensive and over priced and my family was happy we only chose to stay one night. Choosing a three star hotel we expected better. Especially after staying in a beautiful two star in Rome. We thought that with one night in Venice, lets try a three star hotel. Very disappointing. On the good side it was easy to find, close to the train station. Within walking distance form all sites. Venice is small anyway and can be covered in one or two days. Most of the hotels are close to each other anyway.

Great location, easily found, only a five minute walk from the station. Hotel looks ordinary on the outside but rooms and ensuite facilities have recently been renovated and were attractive, as was the breakfast room. Our room was small, but quiet, and overlooked the garden. We left the shutters open, had no need for the airconditioning. Breakfasts were quite basic. Our only complaint was that the property advertised a lift but it operated from reception on the first floor - carrying our bags from the street up a long flight of stairs was indeed character building. But we would stay there again.

My biggest problem was regarding changing my room from a triple room to a double room. When I emailed Venere, I received a reply that I had to contact the hotel directly to make such a change and receive a new rate. I called the hotel in Italy from California first to find out that Hotel Nazionale is no longer in operations and my reservations is transferred to Hotel Spagna. Secondly, the receptionist told me to write my request and fax it to him. I did. When we arrived at the hotel, we were told that their hotel had to pay Venere a commission based on a triple room so we had to pay the triple rate even though we only need a double room. This was the upsetting part. However, the hotel was clean, located in a perfect and easy to find area, breakfast was just okay and the television had CNN and BBC, but did not have any sounds. The Italian and German Channels were find.

The room was nice, clean, and large by European standards; the bathroom as well. The reception staff was attentive and helpful. Breakfast was not especially good (the granola was stale), the coffee tasted like instant, but the breakfast room was light and airy and the staff prompt and courteous. There was a plumbing problem that required the Nazionale to its transfer guests to its sister hotel, the Spagna; although it was not convenient having to pack an extra time, the transfer was accomplished smoothly and the Spagna was perfectly acceptable (Spagna manager Augustus will steal your heart if you are not careful).

The Nazionale was overall a good value and in a great location from the train station. It was a bit hard to find if you are coming in from the airport bus. The staff was great, and even called the the airport to inquire about our lost bags. This hotel was just as advertised....clean,safe, and comfortable, and the room was available early for us on the day of arrival. I would stay here again, except for the fact that I would never go to Italy ever again, as it is filthy, overpriced , and way overrated. Go to the U.K. and drink good beer!

I have a lot to write about this hotel. First of all the location was great. But that was about the only thing good about this hotel. I entered the hotel and went up to the front desk. I gave my name and told the guy I had reservations. Well, guess what, they didn't have me down for any reservations. So I showed the guy my reservation I printed out and he gave me a room. We got to the room and the first thing I notice was the floor was dirty. There were bread crumbs everywhere. I walked in the bathroom to check it out and there were dead flies in the sink AND the shower. There were also broken tiles on the wall and some were missing. The next morning my wife and I went to breakfast. Can you say LIMITED CHOICES. Coffee, hot chocolate(it tasted more like hot water), 2 kinds of cereal, milk, and croissants. I ate some of the cereal and it was bland so my wife and I went out and got some real breakfast. Anyone who's old might enjoy this hotel. But for newlywed's on their honeymoon, this is not the best choice. I've stayed at many hotels in Venice while on my 3 year military tour to Italy and this was the worst.

Les chambres ne sont pas hyper propres. Beaucoup de tapis dans un état qui laisse à désirer dans l'ensemble de l'hôtel... et donc beaucoup de poussières. Le petit déj est franchement pas terrible... voire vraiment lamentable. Pain pas frais, chocolat chaud plutôt froid, café cuit et recuit, choix plutôt limité,... De plus, il faisait plutôt froid dans la chambre... et on a pas trouvé comment mettre le chauffage. C'est surtout le rapport qualité/prix qui est décevant...

This place was a little tricky to find but you shouldnt be walking more than 10 minutes from the train station. I liked this hotel but the only thing was that all of the staff seemed suspicious. Nothing happened but I was always a little uneasy coming and going.

The hotel is located about 5 min from the train station in a touristy area, but how long are you actually at your hotel other than for sleeping? The walls are somewhat thin, but the breakfast is decent. The croissants are DELICIOUS!!!. Not a bad place, and I would stay here again.. but it is definately not the RITZ...

This is the worst value for money hotel that we have stayed in in 26 years of travelling. The fittings were cheap, the space is minimal (you have to almost stand in the bidet to have a shower), the staff chain smoke (in front of a sign that says "No Smoking"), the breakfasts were the worst we have ever experienced, and the decor is simply run down. On the plus side (!) the location is excellent. We wouldn't stay there again.

The hotel is very close to the train station about 2 blocks away. The hotel is not the cleanest place in Italy but it is ok for the money. The best part about the hotel is that there is an internet cafe/bar next door to the hotel which was a great and cheap way of communicating with my family back home. Great little pizza place two stores down.

The location was excellent: near the railway station. Our room overlloked a courtyard. The breakfast was at least adequate. On arrival we were taken aback by having to go up one flight of stairs to the lobby without an elevator [there is an elevator from the lobby to the rooms]. However, if you can manage this flight of stairs you are fine. We would stay at this hotel again.

We were pleasantly surprised by the Nationale Hotel. Given the price compared to other Venice hotels and its close proximity to the train station (very handy and easy to get to with luggage) we expected a much lower standard. The room/bed was very comfortable (incl A/C, TV) and the location was great. It was around a 15 min walk the St Marks but we didn't mind that, as it was all interesting and nice to escape the really touristy bit of Venice. Our room was at the back and was quiet, but I imagine that rooms overlooking the street could be noisy as there is a bar/cafe below. The breakfast buffet was adqeuate (cereal, rolls, pastries etc)and they even kindly provided us with a packed breakfast for our very early morning departure by train. They have an elevator from the lobby to the rooms, however there is a long flight of stairs from the road to the lobby. There was a porter to assist us when we arrived during the day, but he wasn't there all the time. Overall, we were very happy with our stay and would stay there again next time we go to Venice.

Good hotel. Near to train station, what is not as bad in Venice as it usually is in most of the cities. Room is a little bit cramped, but it is ok for european standards. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Definitely recommended!

Venice is expensive but we were surprized that the standards can drop this low for a 3*. Location is OK and good for railway. The hotel has a smell of damp cigarettes in reception area, and when you enter the door and has is a flight of stairs to greet you which is covered with dirty carpet. The elevator has graffiti scratched into it. The rooms we had was OK and clean although light switch was hanging off. Dead mosquitos were splatted on ceiling and walls. Breakfast was pretty poor.

We stayed at Hotel Nazionale for one night as we had to catch an early train. Although we chose it because of its proximity to the railway station, we would be happy to stay there again or to recommend the hotel to others. The staff were very welcoming and efficient, our room was spacious and had a view over a garden. We had to leave at 6am so cannot comment on breakfast, but all-in-all highly recommended.

I think overall the quality of the service matches with the room rate. However, it would be better if a bottle of mineral water is provided in the room. Furthermore, according to the website, there should be internet access. But I realized that I need to pay for it in the internet cafe next to the hotel!! I would suggest the internet connection to be provided free of charge.

It was a great place to stay. Close to the train station, close to a variety of restaurants and close to the vaporetos. The weather contributed with our stay and we did not have a hard time with mosquitos or with the bad smell surronding the city, as we heard from other friends who visited Venice before us.

The location was very good...very near to the station as promised. Also, lots of shops as well as the boat stop nearby. The room was small as expected I guess..my wife dint like the blue color of the room. At 100 euros, we thought it was kind of pricy but I guess thats how the prices are in Venice.

Decent, not-too-pricey place to stay if you need/want to stay a very short walk from the train station. Note: While it has an elevator, it starts one flight up at the reception desk. But a bellman is there to lug your stuff if you ask.
