I booked one night in Venice for my husbands birthday with cheap Ryanair flights to Treviso. We caught the coach outside the airport (costing EUR7 each and taking a very easy 40 mins) and were sitting having coffee at Rialto Bridge in no time!
I picked the hotel knowing if I was only staying one night I wanted it to be central. And this is the perfect location for that! We found the hotel relatively easily with our map we had but you will need one to find it. It's tucked in the side street that runs parallel to San Marco Square. Although once you find it you won't forget where it is, as it's so close. There are lots of lovely restaurants nearby too.
We checked in after 2pm and our room was ready, the front desk were very efficient and we were upstairs in less than 5 mins. Our bedroom was all high ceilings and venetian furniture. I had expected it to be smaller so was pleasantly surprised. It had a lot of character with big windows onto the lanes where I could see all the rooftops. The bathroom was the Hiltonesque style I hadn't expected in such an old building. Bed was comfy.
We woke up to the bells of San Marco early on Sunday morning which I found lovely, but my husband was looking for a lay-in. It had been a very hot evening and the windows were open which hadn't helped. Our air-con was typically old and not too cold but I think you have to anticipate this in Venice. We skipped breakfast and went straight out. The desk checked us out easily again (remember you pay a EUR3 tax pppn) and were happy to look after our bags for the day which was handy.
Overall I'd recommend this hotel for a city break although I did pay a lot for the room for one night. After booking the flights I discovered that it was the weekend of the Vogalonga 2012 race which is a big rowing attraction so I assumed the whole city put their prices up as is usually the case. This was the best hotel I could find centrally for around £200. However, I don't think I would pay that at any other time of year, for any longer than we stayed.
