Great Stay & Convenient Location
The hotel location is on the opposite side of the grand canal, and I think that's what makes it ideal for Venice- it's not as busy and chaotic.Hotel staff was friendly and accomodating. My flight arrived early (just before noon) and the rooms were not ready yet. I had a tour at 1:45pm and check in was at 3pm. They securely stored my bags for me and placed them in the room once the room was ready. When I returned from my tour at 5pm, they gave me my room key and off I went! The bags were there and the air conditioner was already on in the room, as it was the beginning of July and very hot outside. That was a nice touch. The bathroom and room was very clean. Breakfast was nice, an average European style breakfast. Getting to the water taxi/ferry was very easy from the hotel, it is right in front of the Saint Maria Salute Church, maybe a 3 minute walk. Also very easy to get to the Santa Lucia train station- just take Line 1 to Ferrovia takes about 30-40 minutes.

Poor 2.0
Bed bugs and bad hygiene.
Me & my friend were really looking forward to our stay at Messner Palace, but unfortunately it did not live up to our expectations, and ruined our stay. We, supposedly, booked a room with a 'canal view'. This was highly misleading, because I had to stick my head out of the window and turn to my left to see the canal... Photos of our room looked as if the room was much more spacious, as opposed to how tiny it was in reality. On our first night, I came across a bed bug. We then decided to inspect both the beds (there is a single bed on the corner, and a double bed in the center). There were many big and small bed bugs on our pillows, duvets, and behind the bed. We did not go to sleep until the morning, and checked out first thing in the morning. Though the receptionist was lovely, and came upstairs to change the bed covers completely, we were too paranoid and had already started itching, and therefore couldn't sleep. My friend had also been bitten all over her back... We had a restless day, and had to go through the stress of finding a new hotel, and carrying all of our luggage back to our new hotel... To make matters even worse, the tiny beg bugs had gotten into our luggage, and it was all over our clothes (underwear&coats)... We had to stay up until 6am that night to clean and wash absolutely everything, including our suitcases!!! The room was extremely damp, and needs an urgent upgrade for hygiene reasons. Breakfast wasn't so good - only a selection of ham, and bread.

Our stay was amazing! The staff was super nice. I really enjoyed having the travel buddy from the room to get around and have internet. I would definitely stay here again!

False advertisement
Not matching the advertisement at all, at the best it is between 2-3 stars instead of 4. Tiny room, no table, no fridge, no bar, each room one we wanted to get the water we had to go to the reception
