“Excellent location for Venice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

Perfectly located close to railway station and not far from Piazzale Roma bus station. Room and bathroom small, old but clean. Rates good considering it's Venice which is very touristy and was during the Carnival festivities. Breakfast was minimal.

It is very close to the railway station and in the heart of everything. For Venice we thought it was good value for money. The rooms are tiny and old but clean and air conditioned and you are only there to sleep, so for us it was fine.

overall this is a nice hotel with a very welcoming staff.
it's only drawback that i can think of manifested while having a shower: it was impossible to adjust the right water temperature and it was lacking water pressure.

This 2 star hotel is very close to public transport (main train station & waterbuses) and is near the well-known Jewish Ghetto area, a quieter, more vibrant area than the pricey San Marco region. Our main gripes about this hotel would be the bugs (vinegar flies) at breakfast time and the showers (we had the shared bathroom option). Considering Venice is surrounded by water, very little of it came out of our shower! Overall, we weren't expecting the Ritz so we found it ok. The rooms were cleaned and we had fresh towels every day, the staff were also polite. The simple fact is Venice is €€€€!!!

This is a ** star hotel. So you get:
- classic Italian plumbing (no water if your neighbour is showering)
- a room barely big enough for the bed
- no English channels on TV
but you also get
- a convenient location
- pleasant staff
- cleanliness
So go for it. I did and I was happy.

Hotel is located near the train station and can be easily located. However, they do not have a lift in the hotel and we had to carry our luggage two floors up without the help of the hotel staff. The staircase is quite narrow and steep. Room is very small for three people and one of the beds is foldable bed with a thin mattress. Breakfast place is small for the number of hotel guests they accomodate, hence guests would need to squeeze to have their breakfast or even queue to wait for their turn to be sitted. The breakfast is very limited. The female hotel staff is not friendly when we asked a question and were taken aback by the hostile response when she provided us. Thankfully, not all of the hotel staff are the same as some of them are more willing to help us out in our enquiries about the public transport to the airport.
Overall this hotel is ok with it's good points of being located near the train station, free wifi and located near the river taxi stations.

We spent 4 nights at the Hotel Florida. Overall it was a good experience. We were looking for an inexpensive hotel, which is hard to find in Venice. The Hotel Florida is 1 alley away from the train station, and for us was a great location. We didn't have to drag our luggage too far and the vaparettos and water taxis stop a 1/2 block away. The area is fairly congested though. The hotel is in an old building, no elevator for luggage. So getting our bags up and down those narrow stairs was a bit of a work out, but we'd expected that. The front desk is manned 24 hours which is great. The free wi fi worked well on the 2nd floor which we all appreciated. We were a group of 8, 2 rooms of 3 and 1 double. The rooms are a bit small, but clean and the bathrooms I saw had been re-tiled recently. They had nice showers and plenty of hot water. It was HOT in Sept but the a/c worked so we left the windows closed. Not much of a view on the back side of the hotel, but that was OK. The breakfast room is really tiny, and though it was included in the cost of the room, we only had breakfast there once. (Though we did stop there a couple of afternoons an buy a cold beer.)The coffee was pretty terrible and breakfast was just a roll & yogurt. We ended up going around the corner to Restaurant Brek for cappuchino & fresh crossants most mornings. The have a crossant with sprinkles on it that is filled with Nutella...mmmm!
The lady at the front desk was helpful getting us an early taxi the morning we departed. We had to be at the airport by 6 am. We wanted a water taxi but couldn't get anyone to agree to pick us up at 5:30 am. So we ended up with a van. Though the driver had an arrangement with someone who works at the train station. He drove over in this little electric buggy and pick up all our luggage. Then we followed him through a back gate behind the train station to where the taxi waited for us, so we didn't have to drag out luggage up over the bridge into the taxi parking lot. It was pricey, but actually worth it.
