Once the annexe of the Spanish embassy, the Universo e Nord Hotel was transformed into a hotel in the late eighteen hundreds. Today it offers its guests modern comforts and quality service close to the Grand Canal, making it ideal for guests looking to stay on Venice Island whilst being outside the main tourist area. With its excellent transport links guests of the hotel will find it easy to explore sights such as Madonna dell'Orto and Palazzo Ducale.

Location
The Universo e Nord is one hundred metres from the Santa Lucia railway station and three hundred metres from Piazza Roma. Surrounded by bars and restaurants, it is close to the pier where vaporetti travel to St Marks Square and Rialto Bridge.

Rooms
The Universo e Nord has sixty relaxing and comfortable rooms overlooking the Lista di Spagna, inner corte, or the Grand Canal. All rooms feature air conditioning, colour TV, mini bar and hairdryer.

Restaurant
Every morning a continental buffet breakfast is served in the breakfast hall on the ground floor. Lunch and dinner can be taken in any of the cafe's and restaurants nearby.

General
The Universo e Nord Hotel is a convenient and quiet location with good access to the sights and public transport links. Hotel facilities include safety deposit boxes and a left luggage office. The hotel's multi lingual staff are always on hand to offer advice on restaurants as well as tourist information.

Venice is always expensive. This hotel lived up to its 3* rating so we did not mind the price.

No outside view in close proximity to train station and therefore easily accessible. Staff helpful though at times English a little limited but they did their best

The hotel is just 2 mins from the train station S. Lucia or 10 mins from La Piazza Roma,who arrives in bus or car.Anyway it is a very good location,in front of the hotel on the Grand Canal is the vaporetto stop,which will take you in 15mins to La piazza di S. Marco,you can go to Lido and Murano from there too,no need to take private gondola,costs too much! I would suggest unlimited 2 or 3 days vaporetto tickets,it cost 21 euro and we used it a lot!Anyway hotel would do with some proper cleaning. They do clean your bedroom every day,change the towels and sheets and make your bed,but you can see dust everywhere.If you are not fit,ask for bedroom on lower grounds,as we had our one at the top floor,very difficult to get back at the end of the day after walking in Venice.The hotel staff was very kind to us,but my husband is italian.The breakfast was pretty good,for a 3*hotel in Italy,believe me, but they could do with a proper cup of coffee though!There is automat,so be safe,drink tea!

The room was cleaner than i expected although the blankets on the bed were stained. Bed linen was clean though. I had a quite spacious twin room and a big bathroom but the shower became more like a bath after a few minutes due to the water pooling. All this was fine but the only annoying thing was the noise from the water flushing through pipes in the wall. This was quite loud so is a problem if you sleep lightly and others flush at night! Breakfast was very ordinary, pay an extra 2-3 euro and get a great a croissant and coffee at the cafe next door. Overall the price was good for what you got in venice

Very good central location close to the vaporetta stop and the main rail station.Breakfast which is served on the ground floor is a varied cold buffet. One drawback is that all the rooms are on upper floors and there is no lift.

handy to the station, with lots of shops and resturants close by, but this hotel is more two star than three star, also has no lift and is on different levels.

We will certainly go back to Universo Nord Hotel in Venice. But next time, I will request for a lower floor room and one not facing the street. As it is quite noisy during the late evening until about 1pm. The hotel is clean and very well situated, very near the boat stations. The shower in the room assigned to us has low pressure hence the water do not come out strong and the hot water disappear while one is using it. All in all it is a good hotel and breakfast is substantial.

This hotel does not have a lift, so you need to drag your luggage up numerous stairs. If you are getting on a bit as we are, when you book ask for a room on the first floor. Other than that, no real complaints. Central position, staff helpful, breakfast good by European standards.

Great location near the train station and grand canal. Excellent breakfast and very friendly staff. My only concern was that the single room was very pokey and there was a generator that was going on and off all night just outside the room. Double glazing should have been necessary, but none was installed and this was a real problem. In summer, if you had to leave a window, open I cannot imagine how anyone could sleep. Ear plugs a must.
