This was a good 3* hotel in a very quiet area of Venice; the real Venice where people actually lived away from the hustle / bustle of the day trippers to St Mark’s Square which was overwhelming during the day but more reasonable in early evening when my wife attended a service. An afternoon visit to the square was the least enjoyable part of my stay as it was totally overwhelmed by tourists, no doubt many of them day trippers or cruise liner overnighters.
The directions given from the airport by the hotel were spot on. We took the bus and then a short walk to the Vaporetto for a 25 minute ride to San Basilio from where it was a straightforward 15-20 minute walk through a very quiet and absolutely safe area.
The room was comfortable and had everything we wanted including a clean bathroom with a toilet and a shower that actually worked (that’s not always the case!).
The breakfast was inclusive, more than adequate and in a pleasant breakfast room. The hotel do not do evening meals but that was no problem as we like exploring the local restaurants which provided a food choice in terms of quality and cost. One was very close and an excellent mid-range restaurant, there were several others including lower cost pizza places along the main waterfront Zattere), and a further area within 15 minutes walk of backstreet, good quality fun eating places. For those preferring to try the more expensive and crowded city centre places, they were a short vaporetto ride away.
The staff were very helpful and all spoke excellent English, with 24 hour cover.
We purchased a 7 day ticket for the Vaporrettos which included the return trip on the bus to/from the airport. Though we stayed only 4 days, it represented good value as we used the Vaporretos several times every day and if purchased singularly the cost would have soon built up and exceeded the all in ticket.
