Great Location!
This hotel was great! If you are in Venice for a short period of time and need to stay some place that is literally within walking distance to everything, then this is it. Like most reviews have noted, the rooms are small but efficient. The beds were great, and the service was good as well. My mom and I were able to check-in quickly after a long day of flying, and then we left and within minutes arrived at San Marco square, etc.

A delightful experience
From our earliest pre-stay e-mail correspondence to our final "arrivederci", our experience with the Hotel Ateneo was top notch. The staff was beyond professional: they were genuinely friendly, the type of people who you'd like to hang out and chat with. We were fortunate enough to have been given a room in the building across the courtyard in a building separate from the main hotel. We had a private entrance and it felt as though we had our own private apartment...but with maid service! The location could not have been better, central to St. Mark's, the Rialto, and literally around the corner from La Fenice. Oh---and the breakfast was delicious. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend that you do, too.

Great Hotel
The location is outstanding! Rooms very clean and staff friendly I definitely would stay there again, the shower was extremely small and if you have a lot of hair like me take your own hair dryer other than that it was a fabulous stay.

Nice clean Hotel.

Very nice Italian style small hotel
This is a more Italian-style hotel, where you'll have breakfast next to middle class Italian families. It's not an American-style hotel, so if you're looking for a Hilton, look elsewhere. We found the room fine and comfortable enough. Whether you'll consider it shabby or authentic is probably about your perspective. We found it to be an excellent value, well positioned, with a lovely huge breakfast that made lunch practically unnecessary.
