What a nice surprise! After traveling by train from Rome to Venice, we were exhausted and the thought of dragging luggage through Venice was not appealing. Voila - the Boscolo Bellini was literally two minutes walk from the Train Station. We stayed in Room 229 overlooking the street and with a ½ view of the canal. Hotel is "old World Italian" charm with Murano chandeliers, red velvet chairs and ornate draperies. Yes, it's a bit dated, but that adds to the charm. Eugenio and Patrick were SO HELPFUL ~ had great suggestion for walking paths throughout Venice and also called our next hotel to arrange shuttle service and called a porter to help with our luggage to the bus station. It was amazing to watch the porter navigate 4 heavy bags over a long bridge! Yes - wifi in lobby made for interesting evenings with everyone staring at their phones/PCs ~ but we were happy to have it at all! Room was dates and wallpaper stained, but bed was comfortable and room had mini refrigerator, TV, safe, etc. The free breakfast was very good and a nice variety of food and home made cakes. The windows in our room were single pane glass, so heard the hub hub of the street throughout the night. I liked it but it did bother my husbands sleep. Great location to train, buses, vaporetto stations etc. I even did my ALS ice bucket challenge at the Gondolier station in front of the hotel. Would definitely recommend if you are looking for convenience and old world charm.
