First time staying in the Venice region and it will not be the last. Be found this hotel because it was firstly cheap and secondly it was away from the main hustle and bustle of Venice.
Finding the hotel was not to much trouble either. Just head for the long bridge (obvious when you see it) and when you are over it turn right and then just before the CoOp turn left down the quaint street then right past the abandoned glass factory past the two chimneys with ladders up the sides and the hotel is on the left. The hotel is very quaint, small but clean rooms and pleasant staff. As you are basically using it as a place to sleep whilst you explore you couldn’t ask for more really.
A lot has been said about the inadequate breakfasts and it always make me laugh when visiting locations in Europe where you are not paying a lot of money because basically I believe peoples expectations are to high! If all you are after is some cereal, a roll and a hot croissant and a cup of coffee or juice then you are well catered for. If you are looking for a full cooked breakfast served to your table with menus and cotton table clothes then look else where and pay four times the price.
Marino is quiet at night and there is only one decent friendly restaurant/bar our of the four I would recommend which is around the corner and not on the main canal stretch with Pizzas to die for! Also try to get to the café in the little square that is open for locals during the day. It doesn’t look much but it serves the best coffee.
One tip is that being on the island if you go to the south of Venice for a meal at night then you will find it hard getting a boat back to the island after 10pm. You can catch a night boat that goes around all the other islands and is in someway romantic if not a bit spooky.
One last comment is that the venetians like their church bells that wake you up at 7am with a random cacophony of bell ringing!
