We stayed here at the end of Nov and had a really great time.
It's really important to me before spending my hard earned cash that any hotel I stay in is value for money, clean and well located.
From the minute we walked through the doorway it felt all of these things.
Like others, we arrived early and without hesitation as our room was ready, we were able to check in, leave our bags in the room and go off exploring.
The décor both in the room and communal area is very nicely done and feels very comfortable.
There is a free safe, slippers and dressing gown, along with travel toothbrush (not toothpaste) and other necessary toiletries to get you through a weekend. This is worth knowing as with hand luggage and limited space, no need to bring. There is something for everyone at breakfast and around 5pm - 7pm they leave out drinks and nibbles.
The staff were really helpful with any queries put to them and always really friendly and polite. All of them and especially the owner, Luigi, genuinely want to make sure you have a good stay.
Venice itself is a very special place!
I loved the hotels location as it helped us see parts of the city I'm sure some don't that stay in the more central part of Venice. It is a simple 20 min walk in either direction to San Marco square but such a beautiful walk it's something I wouldn't have liked to of missed. The more walking we did, (getting lost from our map many times) the more little gem areas we found. I especially loved walking back to the hotel in the evening where at some points you felt like you were the only people around, yet still felt safe.
Regards to getting from the airport to the hotel, we took the waterbus at 15euros (27 euros return) a couple of stops to Guglie (pronounced Goo Yay) and once off the bus, a 1 min walk to the end of the street, turn left and less than 50 yards down on the left you'll find the doorway for the hotel (look carefully).
Overall, I would love to return to Venice and wouldn't hesitate in staying at the Arcadia again.
