Location is great, you can walk there from the train station. It is also conviniently located next to one of the canals to board the water taxi. The service was friendly and the breakfast was good. Overall a great hotel.
This hotel is located within a short walk of the train and bus station and is perfect if you have to catch an early morning flight (20 minute bus ride to the airport). The receptionist was very friendly and helpful (and spoke english). The
breakfast staff was a little grumpy but it was early. The hotel is clean and the view is spectacular!
Wear comfortable shoes and just get lost in this beautiful city. It is just as wonderful by day as it is by night (and it is safe). We would recomend it to our friends.
The access to the hotel is easy from the airport... take a bus to the Plaza de la Roma basically where all the buses end up dropping off everyone. The hotel is in plain site and is about 50 yards or less. It only takes one little bridge to cross
and a few steps to get to the front door.
The room my mother and I stayed in was very small with a double bed, the shower had no curtain or door so everything got wet. The view was great of a canal from one window and the bus depot from another window... not so great, hence the noise in the morning when buses arrived and honked their horns not thinking people would be sleeping at 6 in the morning.
Apparently we had a continental breakfast included with the room which was not indicated on the reservation or the front desk. We only found this out when I asked if there was a local place for breakfast. They served cheeses, meats, crackers, bread, yogurt, coffee or tea, fruits and juices. I really liked the taste of their yogurt.
All in all it's a decent location if you don't mind hearing bus horns in the morning... I'm a heavy sleeper so it didn't bother me as much. If you don't want to drag your suitcases throughout Venice with it's cobbled stoned streets, bridges with steps and ferries I recommend this place.
We stayed here the night before our cruise - perfect location near Piazzle Roma for buses from the airport and to the cruise terminal. Our room overlooked a canal, very quiet. Room size was typical for Europe, immaculately kept. Nice breakfast
Front desk staff was very helpful- would definitely stay here again!
I chose the hotel because it is located right off the Piazzale di Roma, a major interface between old Venice and the outside world where tour busses and vaporetti load and unload their passengers. As I hoped, I was able to walk easily with my
luggage from the bus to the hotel. Yet I found the hotel to be distant enough from the Piazzale to provide quiet and a sense of Venetian intimacy. Both windows in my small but serviceable room opened out upon canals and bridges. Had I been traveling on vacation, I might have preferred a hotel more deeply entrenched in the alternate universe that the city provides. On this occasion, an academic conference, it was perfect.
