This is the way to experience Venice. This hotel is in a quiet neighborhood which I welcomed. A short walk to many restaurants where the locals eat and hang out. There are a couple of vaporetta stops nearby to take you to the hustle and bustle of Venice. So location wise, it was great.
As a platinum I was upgraded to a canal room, the rooms are small in italy so that was no surprise. There is a lack of drawer spaced (3 teeny tiny drawers in the closet). There was only one outlet (which they recommend you plug the mosquito repellent into). We had lots of things we needed outlets for, so we just kept out windows closed, never had mosquito, but really could have used way more outlets.
Breakfast was in the beautiful garden. One dish off the hot menu and the buffet. eh. Do NOT get the pancakes as they haven't perfected the American pancake yet. Eggs and such were fine. Lots of pastries. I cannot say how great the service was by all the staff. Kitchen and front desk. Just excellent. Very helpful.
Don't fret about the shower, just turn on the cold water first and adjust the shower head before you turn it on. The beds are a tad on the hard side. For English language TV, you'll have CNN. Typical of Italy.
Venice is expensive and so is the Boscolo. 15Euro small tiramasu and a 7Euro small bottle of coke. But again, lots of nearby eateries. 75E for private water taxi to the train station as of today.
I would stay here again for sure!!!! See photos my daughter took below.
