Worst hotel on trip!

After shlepping suitcases from the train station to the hotel we then had to walk up a flight and a half to our room since there is no elevator. Once we got into the room we encountered another 12 steps up to the room. No wifi and our wakeup call never came.

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.

quaint venice visit

We stayed at the Basilea for a couple of days prior to a cruise. The hotel is close to a quiet canal a short 3 block walking distance from the grand canal. It is an old palazzo converted to hotel. The staff is friendly and has good advice. Breakfast is warm and plentiful. There is no lift (elevator) if you get an upper floor. The room was comfortable to rest in. The bathroom required some repair in tiles and bathtub. The room included a small 13 inch TV. Just across the hotel's canal is a small but delicious place with locally made pizza and gelato. It is about 20 minutes walk to Piazzale Roma (where buses and taxis arrive) and 15 min to the train station (Venice Santa Lucia ferrovia) carrying regular rolling luggage (faster with carry ons). If you arrive from Marco Polo Airport the Alilaguna water bus orange line can leave you at Guglie station and it takes about 15 min to walk to the hotel. Just ask directions to cross the Gli Scalzi bridge. There is Internet access at the lobby at reasonable prices (about 4.5 euro for 30 minutes). The hotel doesn't offer lunch or dining service but there is plenty to choose from nearby.

Anders gebucht, als gedacht.

Das Hotel zu finden war eigentlich kein Problem, da die Lage des Hotels nicht weit vom Busbahnhof entfernt war und daher gut erreichbar. Als wir jedoch das Zimmer gesehen haben, waren wir gelinde gesagt enttäuscht, denn wir dachten ein drei Sterne Zimmer gebucht zu haben, haben jedoch ein zwei Sterne Zimmer bekommen, was auf der englischen Internetseite stand, aber nicht auf der Deutschen. Was auch nicht dabei stand, war die gemeinsame Nutzung eines Badezimmers mit dem Nebenzimmer. Das Zimmer selbst war klein und in einem Nebengebäude untergebracht und hatte neben nur einer Beleuchtung auch nur geringe Möglichkeiten seine Sachen unterzubringen. Man lebte quasi aus dem Koffer. Allerdings muss man auch erwähnen, dass die Zimmer jeden Tag sauber gemacht wurden und auch die Handtücher gewechselt wurden. Das Essen und das Personal im Hotel waren dafür sehr gut. Immer freundlich und es gab eine gute Auswahl an Gebäck und Trinken beim Frühstück. Wenn man also dort buchen sollte, sollte man darauf achten auch wirklich drei Sterne zu buchen und im Haupthaus ein Zimmer zu nehmen.

Nightlife tip: Long walk from hotel

Den Markusplatz bei Nacht zu sehen war mit das Beste an Venedig. Die Musik, die live von kleinen Orchestern gespielt wurde und die Beleuchtung des Platzes, sowie des Dogenpalastes waren sehenswert. Auch die ganze Atmosphäre auf dem Platz war sehr schön gewesen. Am besten man benutz die dortigen Wasserbusse, die sogenannten Vaporettos.
