Having studied all the mixed reviews we decided to go with our choice of the Basilea seeking a basic but clean base for our break in venice in a good location . It did not disappoint.
The location is excellent about 5 mins from the railway station and access to the Waterbus . Easy walking to Rialto and St Marks .
The double room ( 132) was two beds together but were clean and comfortable , the en suite bathroom looked as though had just been refurbished and no complaints, good shower and plenty hot water even busy mornings . Breakfast again basic , cereal , juice, coffee a range of pastries and eggs on request . We found no reason for complaint and the waitress though busy was always pleasant. The team on reception were helpful and pleasant despite a full hotel always remembered us on our return with the key and warm greetings . Wi fi available in the foyer area if needed, tv available with deposit for remote but we went to venice to explore and did not miss the tv at all !
We were pleased we chose the Basilea , in advance of our trip we did e mail the hotel to confirm directions from the bus/ train and had immediate reply with detailed map , at the same time we also re confirmed that we did not want to stay either in any sister hotel or in the annex of this hotel . May be worth doing if like us you had some concerns re the comments found on this site . As it turned out we had an enjoyable stay and got exactly what we asked for !
