Hotel Basilea - April 2010

Quaint hotel with friendly staff and nice rooms in a very convenient location. Close to the Piazalle Roma for ground transportation, the train station, and the vaporetto (water bus) stop. Breakfast was not that great except for the coffee and criossants, but it was included and the breakfast room was very nice. The yellow sign outside the hotel made it very easy to find the hotel, which is a big plus in Venice. Definitely a great deal for Venice.

Worth the price

Old building (well.. it's Venice!) but in decent condition and it has air conditioner which is a nice surprise. Good location--quiet neighborhood, yet still close to train station (about 5 minutes walk) and easy to find. You don't want to get lost trying to find the hotel while still carrying your luggage (you will have plenty of opportunities to get lost.. believe me!). You can even walk to St Mark square (about 30 minutes walk) or take waterbus in front of train station through Grand Canal which is pretty convenient. Our rate didn't include breakfast so we can't comment on it. There are a number of restaurants and cafe around so not having breakfast included is no big deal. Overall, it's a nice stay in Venice.

More than adequate housing in Venice

The location was great for a trip to Venice: close enough to the train station for an easy walk with luggage, but far enough from the main tourist areas that it was nice and quiet. The hotel was affordable, gave adequate housing, had nice staff. I'd say that this is the perfect no-frills value place to stay in Venice - Spend your money on food, wine, and transportation instead of opulent housing.

Good deal

If you do the Rome, Florence, Venice vacation, by the time you get to Venice, you are tired of being surrounded by tourists. This hotel is on a quiet street away from the main tourist spots. It was easy to find and close to the train station and bus terminal. Not fancy, but clean and the staff was friendly

Niced and friendy hotel

I traveled (as tourists) with my sister and we enjoyed very much our visit to Venice, including your hotel. We liked a lot the breakfast and the service. The hotel has a wonderful location and is very easy going to many nice places. I have just one sugestion: give to your gests help with the baggage when they enter or leave the hotel beside because there is a lot of stairs, and we got very, very tired (two ladies). Congratulations! We enjoyed a lot our stay.
