We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The location is convenient, close to the bus station (Piazzale Roma), the Vaporetta stop and the train station (10 minute walk). We took a Brazi bus (40 minute, €7) from Treviso Airport and could see our hotel from the bus plaza. Hauling luggage in Venice is difficult – all bridges seem to start and end with stairs. However, this hotel was only one bridge away. At first we thought being so close to the bus station would be unpleasant but it was not noisy, was not a distraction and the canal right out front of the hotel was a plus. Our family had two rooms – delightfully decorated in Venetian style. The rooms were roughly the same size –the adults had a separate couch for sitting and two windows, one which looked over a beautiful, peaceful courtyard in the back, where you can enjoy breakfast in the morning. Cappuccinos and a buffet breakfast in the courtyard is a great way to start the day. The teenager’s room looked out over the canal. The air-conditioning, worked wonderfully – definitely a plus in August when temperatures were over 30 Celsius. The rooms each had a large safe, small refrigerator and wifi worked.well. The area is well-removed from the main, over-crowded tourist area of San Marco, but has plenty of restaurants, shops and quaint streets to wander. The vaporetta ride from the Roma piazza stop takes about 45 minutes on the #1 and 25 minutes on the #2, a lovely way to enjoy the Grand Canal on the way to the tourist sites. A benefit of staying at this end of Venice is you are first on the ferry headed south and have a better chance of getting to sit at the bow.
