So, we arrived at Hotel Florida yesterday afternoon. The only good thing about this hotel is the close proximity to the train station. The lady who greeted us, appeared to be friendly enough- however, before she could actually check us in the hotel phone rang- she said she had to take the call as it was 'very important' she said it would be no more than 5 minutes and for us to wait upstairs. We waited upstairs for over 10 minutes and after we heard her hang up- we went back down. Just as we got to the counter she proceeded to make more 'important' phone calls- so 25 minutes later we were checked in. The hotel had a very strange smell- it may have been from the woman mopping the carpet! The room was tiny and in awful condition. There was apparently air conditioning but it only made a loud noise and appeared to put more hot air into the room, rather than cool it down. The shower took a good 5 minutes of running it to Warm up- and then it just trickled out. In the room there was barely enough room for us and our 2 suitcases. We couldn't possibly imagine spending a second night in this hotel so we cut our stay in venice short and only stayed 1 night. We also chose this hotel originally as we wanted somewhere close to the train staton- which it was and also as it had WIFI- however the wifi was not working and they could not fix it. When we finally checked out of the hotel their eftpos facilities were also not working- after urging us to then get cash (which we refused) they took an imprint of our card. Overall, this hotel was awful- however Venice was lovely.
