When you are looking for a hotel that is easy to get to, easy to find, in a city that you don't speak the language - and you don't want to roll your luggage up and down tight walkways and steep bridges - this is the place for you!
We also came off a cruise - and we walked from the cruise port - up the car ramp, over the glass bridge and after a 15-20 min walk - Arlecchino was easily spotted with its bright yellow exterior and large signage. As noted, it is right next to the main bus station that can pretty much get you everywhere. It is also a 5 minute walk to the Termini train station that gets you to the other cities such as Rome! Another 10 minute walk northeast and you are at the waterbus stop Guglie - the stop to get you to the Marco Polo Airport (30 minute ride via waterbus).
We easily followed the crowd to Marco Square which took 30 minutes.
Our rooms were cozy and charming. You are in Europe, so do not expect fancy large hotel rooms with Westin Hotel King beds. It has everything you need - with a main focus on cleanliness and free wifi. We got room 803 - which was on the 3rd floor - and got the view of the canal - and of course the bus stop on the other side. At night, being so centrally located, it was quite loud throughout the night - so bear that in mind if you are a light sleeper.
If I were to go to Venice again, this definitely would be the hotel of choice, with their knowledgeable staff who are organized and on the ball. Informative and easy going. It is a great place to drop down your luggage for a nice rest!
For the hotter summer months - I recommend a place with AC :)
