“As close as your going to get”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2013 via mobile

This hotel as close to St Marcos sq as your going to get, it was fantastic being able to be in the middle of everything in less the a minute. This was my third time in Venice and found the room to be large by Venice standards, remember everything in Venice is smaller then a major city but this hotel was perfect. The room was decorated in a traditional Venice style which was a nice change from the standard rooms you see out there. The room was extremely clean, I do think I've ever seen a cleaner room and bathroom. I found the staff to be warm and helpful, well done!

A very nice little hotel, rooms were on the small side for our family of four, but the room and bathroom were very clean. Breakfast was adequate, but not great. We were disappointed on our final morning because we had to leave just before the breakfast was being served, and we weren't allowed to grab a croissant or banana for the (long) trip to the airport. We too noticed the ever-present red laundry bags in the hallways, and could hear the noisy family next to us. Wi-fi was included, but you had to be near the door or in the hallway to get a decent signal. My biggest complaint was the pretentiousness of the desk staff (owners?) and the lack of assistance with local restaurant suggestions. On three occasions I asked for suggestions, and kept being told to go to a restaurant that had numerous negative reviews for taking advantage of tourists. Nice little property if you want to be near St Mark's Square, but set your expectations accordingly.

Spent last 2 nights here. Host Bruno is so friendly and, being a native, knows Venice inside out. He gave us some fabulous recommendations. The room, though compact, was very clean and everything worked. Somewhat difficult to find, especially after a 24 hour flight, but that was an adventure in itself. I won't spoil it for you. Would stay here again when next visiting.

We stayed at this property for 4 nights in late April 2013. The location is brilliant - right off San Marco sqaure amongst all the fancy designer shops. But if you are close to "the action" you should expect to hear church bells all night. At breakfast I would often hear travellers complaining they were woken by the bells. I never heard them between 1 - 7am but I did use ear plugs. It is also very close to the No.1 ferry stop so it's no problem getting from the train station to the hotel with luggage.
The room was clean but very small and we found it difficult to have 2 suitcases open at once. The bathroom can only be described as compact. It however had a safe and small fridge to keep a few drinks cold. The air-conditioning was not working but we were able to open windows. The room came with free wi-fi.
Breakfast was between 8 - 10am but on 2 occasions I found a few tables of guests there not long after 7:30am.

Room Tip: Room 308 is at the back of the hotel over the hotel entrance. Room faces on to houses and roofs. B...

All the reviews that you have read are spot on...so no need to repeat except to say that the location is excellent and will def be back
One point though is to get a room with a terrace , as well worth the extra cost
Their website though needs updating with getting to the hotel from the airport
The public boat runs every 15 minutes and costs 15,000 euros per person but it is the way to go!!
Try to do your walking early in the morning as by midday onwards Venice explodes with people
Stay with confidence

Four of us went to Venice for the first time in April and we stayed in the Albergo Firenze. It is a lovely hotel, but unfortunately the roof terrace was not open yet so we ate breakfast in a small dining room. The hotel is hardly any distance at all from San Marco Square, so perfectly situated. The view from our room was down towards the Grand Canal and right across from the Louis Vitton store. I think the hotel could improve itself though by removing the laundry bags which tended to lie in the corridors all day and you would be best to find your own restaurants rather than take the advice of the elderly gent on reception! This is a city hotel so the rooms are going to be smaller, just like Paris or Nice, but spotlessly clean.

We stayed in Venice for 2 nights.
Rooms: quite small but all amenities as required included.
Service: We were greeted by a very friendly older venetian gentleman who checked us in very efficiently, the lift was broken so his 'assistant" carried our bags up the stairs, then when we got to our room their was refreshing cold pear juice and two biscuits waiting for us which we thought was very sweet. When completing the last of our check in the Venetian gentleman then went on to strongly advise we take his morning walking tour and offer "helpful" suggestions for restaurants. We decided take his suggestions which were good and bad, the restaurants - not so good in fact very average, the walking tour - quite expensive at 51€pp but very informative and personal, and we were given some excellent advise regarding ferry passes and how to get to the islands (grab a 24hr ferry pass for 20€, it il save you heaps)...
Location: excellent for being in central venice, terrible for noise, the shutters provide no relief to the noise and fellow guests were extremely noisy when coming in late at night drunk, clomping up the stairs and shouting and mucking around (grown adults in their 30-40's).

With the ferries so frequent and so easy to use I would recommend staying a little out of the action to get some sleep, but if you want to be right in the action and don't mind a bit of noise this place will suit you.
