“Great deal for what you pay, cozy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

After good time researching about a good deal I finally booked this hotel not knowing anything in Venice, what a surprise when I found out it was just few steps from Saint Lucia train station ( the one you need to get your tickets from ) the best thing is the front desk' personal ( bilingual) very sweet and helpful, you wake up with the sound of the church bells, nice and fresh breakfast, small but very clean rooms with private bathroom, I have not doubt that if I ever go back to Venice I'll stay at Florida' hotel

Don't be put off by my average rating! It may have been average but for anyone wanting a cheaper but perfectly adequate hotel in Venice this would fit the bill!
It's only a short walk from both railway station and bus stands, your entry to Venice from the airport (no 5 bus, single fare 6 euros). You can pay on the bus going into Venice but have to go to the ticket office, near bus stand, on returning to the airport; buses run 4 times an hour and take approx. 25mins.
Breakfast is included, which is basic but filling. Rooms are small and quite traditional in decor, shower in our room was great, loads of hot water. The hotel is down a narrow street, so is quiet. It's just by the bridge in the district of Ferrovia and is your walking entry into the streets of Venice, which eventually take you down to Rialto. We didn't use the water transports, we walked! You see so much more!!

Nice clean cheap budget hotel. The only problem, there is no porter service and no lift. So don't bring heavy suite case as you need to climb stairs to go to your room. The good thing was there was air-conditioning. Comfortable during hot summer stay.

The staff were very friendly and attentive. They even prepared our takeaway breakfast even without us asking, as we left the hotel very early in the morning before the restaurant opens.

There was a nice restaurant next door named Trattoria alle lance. Food was excellent especially the pizza.

Location : very good location if you have to catch train from Santa Lucia. You need to ealk/take water bus to visit other attractions

Staff: hitel staff was very friendly. They had two cute dogs :)

@ Hotel: good value for money hotel. Restaurants were very closeby

They have provided us to-go breakfast to us as we had very early train. Thanks a lot.

Good things about Hotel Florida is the location, less than 5 minute walk from Santa Lucia train station, no bridge crossing which is perfect, there's also a water bus station nearby. All works and the room is more or less decent, but it's an old hotel and the whole thing is just ugly.
No lift to the rooms upstairs so prepare yourself to handle your own luggage.

My friends and I just stayed there for a night so it's okay.
Good for short stay, don't expect more.

Its very close to the station which is very helpful since you dont need to drag the luggage around the city. THe only advantage of this hotel is the location. The hotel as such is quite average. There is so elevator so if you are staying in 2nd floor then you will have to lift the luggage through narrow staircases. The rooms are big and the restaurant is serves good breakfast. But there is no Wifi in the room. It works only in the restaurant and lobby area. The towels are changed only once in 3 days. Though it is in prime location, it is quiet in the evenings. So if you are looking only for location then this place is definitely offers good value for money but expect nothing more.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2014

This hotel provided what you would expect of a 2 star hotel in Venice - clean bed and basic amenities. The main advantage of this hotel is its location - right next to St Lucia train station and next to one of the four bridges crossing the Grand Canal. WiFi was limited to the reception and breakfast area, and we were allowed to check in early which was nice. When looking for this hotel the signage is small coming off the main street, so keep an eye out on the left coming from the train station.
