Hotel cris exceeded our expectations in many ways. Usually you get what you pay for but this was exceptionally good value. As other reviews have mentioned the walls are a little thin, but that's being picky. Staff very very friendly and helpful, polite and always smiling. Breakfast was typically contitntal, but fresh & unlimited servings. Coffee was above average and I would especially recommend the espresso! WIFI in rooms was very good and free of charge, but the one thing that struck. E was the cleanliness... Never stayed at a cleaner accommodation.
OK this was a little daunting for me and my wife, as usually we stay in a resort etc & certainly never braved public transport abroad without pre-arranged transfers etc... But this was surprisingly easy. We walked straight out of macro Paulo airport and found bus stop number 2. A lady was waiting with a ticket machine, spoke good English. It cost us €6 each for a sigle ticket to meastre train station on a fairly busy coach. The drive was about 20-25 mins. We literally crossed the road and took the second right walked straight down and took third left. This took us directly to hotel cris. Ignore the sign on the bus stop - (it sends you down the wrong road) - take the turning after. This is a ten min walk max from where you are dropped.
GOING INTO VENICE
This was a complete doodle. I would recommend purchasing a travel pass from the hotel reception. This gave us unlimited travel on the buses to and from Venice and on the zaperetto boats in and around Venice. Turn right out of the hotel, then right at the end of the road, and walk for literally 30 seconds and the bus stop is there (conveniently next to a supermarket) where sun cream and water was so so much cheaper than anywhere else. The number 2 bus took us directly to Venice main bus hub and from there the whole island is your oyster!!! It doesn't matter which boat you gt on on which path you walk it's just beautiful & scenic wherever you go. We didn't even have a plan we just got on any boat and let it take us to the various locations and even stayed on most until they terminated. Another boat is on,y minutes away. We enjoyed going to the outer islands the most in particular libo.
No getting away from this you are going to have to pay 80€ min. You can haggle slightly on the time you get though... We managed to get and hour and ten for this amount! Enjoy.
