Travellers' Choice
Generator Venice stands on the waterfront of the island of Giudecca, one shortstop on the Vapporetto from Piazza San Marco. Our Venice hotel was originally a warehouse, so the building blends history and character with contemporary design features. Inside the hotel, you’ll find luxurious mosaic floors, a glass chandelier, and an imposing stone fireplace. Public spaces are subtly split into intimate and open-plan areas – all surrounding the bar and cafe. Every room has a view of either the gardens, Lido, Grande Canal, or the iconic San Marco. Not bad, eh? -- Please note that due to the global pandemic, some venues, amenities, and services may have been eliminated or scaled down for the safety of our guests and staff. Please contact the hotel should you have any questions or concerns.

The hostel is pretty average. The breakfast is good and cheap. The bathrooms are a little gross (mostly from some black mold in the showers) and one of the windows in my room wouldn't not close all the way so we could hear seagulls and people outside. My roommates had like so sense of others. They would just play music out loud with no headphones and facetime people at max volume past 10 pm. That's not the hostel's fault but i feel like some enforcement of rules would be nice. Biggest drawback of this hotel is that it's not on the main island of Venice, but it's easy enough to get between the islands with the vaporetto.

Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We have arranged the rooms and bathrooms in the best possible way to accommodate our guests comfortably and safely. I am sorry you feel we haven’t achieved that. If cleanliness is ever an issue, please don't hesitate to tell the staff as we will do our best to assist in situations like this. Our housekeeping team does work hard to make sure everything is looking it's best, I will however pass this on to them to make sure it will improve in the future. I must apologise for the noise in your room. I would encourage you to come and visit us at reception anytime, day or night, if you had any issues as we would have tried our best to resolve the situation, changing your room or maybe providing you complimentary earplugs. We hope you still enjoyed your time in Venice and hope to welcome you back in the future to leave a better impression on you. Kind regards, Generator Venice.

The location is superb. Very friendly customer service. The food very good. The croissant were delicious at breakfast, and so where the cicchetti. The room was good, clean. I highly recommend for staying in Venice. Very easy to go from Giudecca to anywhere.

About half of the bathroom facilities had maintenance issues. lights not working, doors not shutting. Missing showerheads. Its also important that you MUST use the water taxi/ water bus to get anywhere. This costs 10 per trip or 24 per day. Adds up over a couple days. Other than the bathroom issues it was comfy. Staff was pretty friendly and helpful.

the toilets and showers were dirty and didnt function, the staff is very rude, the music from the bar downstairs was very loud until the early morning so it was impossible to sleep, the wifi is barely working, we didnt expect much as it is still a hostel, but this wasnt even the bare minimum

This was another great trip to Venice, staying at Generator. So relaxing after long days visiting La Biennale. Always so friendly, the view!!! Best in Venice. It’s a great base to see all the sights/ feel located, but also a haven to drink a spritz next to the water.

Really enjoyed our stay at Generator. It's on a very chilled island, but only a hop away from St Mark's. Vaporettos are quite expensive so it's worth buying a pass and then using it heavily for sightseeing as well as transport to and from the hostel. The staff were really friendly and our room was great. A private four bed room with spacious bathroom and an amazing view out to St Mark's. The same view could be enjoyed with breakfast and drinks in the evening.

I feel like since my first stay years ago the quality is getting worse and worse. In the meantime you cannot even lock the doors on the toilets anymore. I felt like the staff at the reception was either pretty unfriendly or acted like robots not actually caring but just playing procedures.

When you book Generator Venice you don't expect a 5* hotel. However, some basic needs of guests should be fulfilled. Very briefly: - No towels. While the non-provision of towels as "standard equipment" is not specifically mentioned in the website, when you go there you find yourself without towels and you can rent one for 5 eur. - Simply unacceptable. However, this has already been mentioned by many visitors. - A new feature was the ABSENCE of a handle in the toilet door meaning that the toilet door could not be closed. While the problem was immediately raised with the staff, no-one bothered in the next 3 days of my stay, unless renting door handles is the new policy of generator.... - The view is amazing and the building itself has original in a very nice neighborhood.
