My friend and I stayed here for 4 days when we ran in the Venice Marathon, I booked through venere.com mainly on price (total bill £71.70 for 4 nights accomodation only)
In the days leading up to going I was a bit worried as I,d read alot of negative reviews on Venere, however..
I enjoyed the college, it had character, it was old, it had a great old garden, it was on a canal, it was 5 minutes dander from plaza roma, there was an art exhition, found a local cafe round the corner (not with san marco prices), it was 5 mins to st basilo waterbus stop, there were locals and hardly any tourists to be seen!
The room , ok, it was like a prison cell, it had no curtains , but had a nice roof top view, was on the 3rd floor - 70 steps , try getting down them after 26 miles
Toilets and showers , there were seperate ones for males and ones for females, I had a great shower with plenty of hot after after the marathon
Noise , it was a bit noisy but I came prepared with ear plugs
To sum up, I would not take my wife here as she would kill me, but for people on a budget or perhaps going round Europe it would be an ideal base to stay, also I met some nice people and had a good overall experiance
I will be running the venice marathon again in 2009 and I will be staying in the college again
Bout ye... the seeker of truth and justice!
