Positive Reviews


Baroque decor.

The richly baroque interiors of Ateneo please most guests, who praise the style and décor of the hotel. If you're after that authentic Venetian experience, there's plenty to pique your interest here, from magnificent chandeliers to original works of art, all within your private room.


In the heart of Venice.

Guests love the central Venice location, which makes it easy to pack in all the sights. You'll be surrounded by Venice highlights, and when you get tired of walking, there's a waterbus stop right nearby too.


Attentive service.

The service at this hotel gets the thumbs up from guests, who appreciate the professional, friendly welcome and the attention to detail. Whether you need concierge services or you're just looking for a comfortable, stress-free stay, Ateneo's level of service should ensure that you're satisfied.

Negative Reviews


Small rooms.

As is typical of Venetian hotels, many of the rooms and bathrooms are quite small, and with all those baroque furnishings, some guests find them a bit cramped and overly dark. You might find the bathrooms in particular a real squeeze.


No lift.

Guests point out that there's no lift at this hotel, and given the historic nature of the building, the stairs are quite narrow and difficult to navigate if you have lots of luggage. It's worth being aware of if you're staying on the third floor in particular, as it can be quite a hike up.


Issues with the WiFi.

The WiFi isn't great at this hotel, with guests saying that the connection is often slow or doesn't work at all. This can be a pain if you're trying to plan the next things to do and see during your excursions around Venice, though you might get a better signal in the main reception area.
