We got the trip to Venice and hotel at a very good price, so we knew it wasn't going to be the Ritz. The staff were very friendly, the room basic but had clean pure white towels daily and a comfortable bed. Breakfast was continental. I don't want to run the hotel down really but the only problem with it really was the distance to Venice. The bus stop was just outside the hotel, but it was a good half an hour away. Sometimes there were no seats available and we had to stand all the way. The last bus back to the hotel is 8.35 pm, if you want to leave Venice later the bus doesn't stop outside the hotel and you have a good 10 minute walk back. We ended up taking the wrong route back and ended going to another hotel and asking them to order us a taxi! We absolutely loved Venice though and it is one of the safest cities in the world. Tips -Shopping to die for so take your credit cards! There were also shops that just sold wine on tap, costing only £1.53 a litre and some of the best wine we have ever tasted. Look out for where the locals eat and drink, food cheaper and better. Take the water buses, Venice is a maze of streets and canals and you can easily get lost. Romantic city with friendly people. Highly recommend it, but next time we would stay on Venice island.
