This was our fifth visit to Venice over the last twenty years and we have now found the hotel we will most certainly be returning to. La Calcina is a small but excellent mid-range hotel, clean, comfortable (very good beds) and offering an inclusive breakfast, marvellously well situated on Zattere. This means it's an easy walk to the Accademia, and near enough to the vaporetti stop to be able to get to anywhere else quickly and enjoyably. John Ruskin, the artist and historian, may have been preoccupied with the tortures of St Ursula, but he knew a good hotel when he saw one and did not hesitate to let himself enjoy it. As we did too. I have only one minor criticism: the breakfast chef does not understand scrambled eggs (dry yellow crumbs arrived on my plate) but I will offer a tutorial next time we go. Don't let this put you off! It's a great hotel, with very friendly and helpful staff. Caroline Taylor
