I was travelling to Venice with 5 girlfriends and until 10pm the night before our flight, we were unsure as to whether we would get away or not, due to the Icelandic volcano. For the whole of the previous week, Eugenio had been emailing us with our travel queries and assured us that he would be ready for our arrival whenever that would be. We flew into Marco Polo and because we had cancelled our pre-arranged water taxi (not wanting to forfeit £350 as a no-show) we re-booked one at the airport, a return trip, which actually worked out cheaper! We sped across the lagoon and arrived at the water taxi stop right outside the Hotel Panorama. Eugenio was true to his word and although not there in person, had held our rooms which were ready immediately for us. Each room had a double and a zed-bed, fully fitted shower room and looked very comfortable. The vaparetto stop was right outside the hotel which took us daily by waterbus to Venice itself. A multiple use ticket is essential and will be well used, you can buy one at the waterbus stop. After a peaceful night's sleep (shutters at the windows blocked out sound and light) breakfast was eat what you like, continental. Cheese, meats, cereal, yoghurts, breads, pastries with juice tea & coffee. Quite sufficient to last till lunch! Nothing was too much trouble for the cheerful staff, even when we needed some sweets as stakes in a card game at 1 o'clock in the morning! Advice, tips & conversation, all came easily and were always delivered with a smile. As with all of Venice, I would recommend eating away from the main haunts and the Lido was perfect for this. Just around the corner from the hotel there was plenty to choose from at reasonable prices. Even when you are early (before they open?!!) the restaurant staff sit you down with a glass of wine while you wait. Everyone is so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The Lido is a main stop on the waterbus route so you can get to any island / destination you fancy. As our flight home was not until the evening, we checked out of our rooms and our cases were looked after for the rest of the day at the Hotel, whilst we enjoyed our final hours in Venice, in the sunshine. They even provided some tape to fix a broken suitcase! All in all, I would definitely return to this hotel and would have absolutely no qualms with recommending it to anyone who wishes to visit Venice.
