We deliberately chose to stay 2 nights at this hotel because of its location near the train station which is just one hundred meters from the Santa Lucia train station. You won't have to cross any bridges. Simply exit the station and walk to your left. Just after the Scalzi Church on your left, take the first "calle" on you left, calle Priuli dei Cavaletti. You will pass Florida Hotel on your right and then when you reach the Chinese restaurant on your right, you'll find the Hotel Abbazia on your left.
Hotel room was clean and beds comfortable and big enough for the four of us. The lights in the room were a bit dim though. There was a bathtub in the bathroom as well. Wifi is free and TV programs available but again only 1 English news channel if I remember correctly. Anyway who is really interested in coming to Venice to watch TV programs?
Breakfast was good enough and the hotel was really lovely. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful.
The day when we wanted to roam the streets, it was raining and the streets were flooded. People were walking on elevated platforms but due to the crowds and some with luggage jamming up the walks, we decided to return to the hotel. So we experienced what they called acqua alta in Venice that day. Rubber boots can be bought from off the street vendors at 15 euro each but we borrowed ours from our hotel and so we could wander around the amazing streets of Venice and had a great time.
We paid 125 euro per night for a family room that accommodates four of us that came with breakfast. Could not think of staying anywhere else that could offer such a good deal and with great convenience near the train station with easy access to the water bus stop and other conveniences like shops and cafes everywhere near this hotel.
For us who needed to take the express bus to Innsbruck, we simply turn right and walked pass the train station and then crossed over the big bridge to reach the Plaza Roma to take the People Mover which cost 1 euro each. The first stop is for those who need to catch their cruise and the last stop will take you to the bus terminal.
We had a wonderful experience indeed. And thanks to Hotel Abbazia too!
