Good Location, lots of noise

The hotel was in a good location. Right near the vaparetto stop to venice and the airport. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. The excellent and absolutely huge free breakfast just about made up for the shortcomings. The biggest problem was the noise. Which really wouldn't have been a problem at all if the air conditioning was availabe. We stayed in late May and it was warming up, but not uncomfortably. The airconditioning is only available during main summer months, but to keep the room cool you had to have the shutters all the way open to get a breeze. Not a problem during the day, but at night the buses coming and going and all the street noise was a huge problem. Then Italy won a big soccer match so the locals drove around honking horns and celebrating. Which was fun, until it went on for several hours. Then there was a crazy amount of noise coming from the bar across the street until 2 am. We got virtually no sleep in our 2 day stay, because the buses start around 5 am and make the whole room shake when they drive by. Not exactly the ideal way to end your 2 week trek through Europe. When we complained we were just told the air conditioning wasn't availabe. And if we were able to shut the windows, the noise wouldn't have been an issue at all. The hotel was a good price, and needed some updating and renovation, but everything was pretty clean.

two day trip to venice

The location was a great price and value, but difficult to get to. It was near the beach. It didn't have great water pressure or air conditioning.
