We write a lot of reviews for all over the world, and what we try and say is how it is. It was a special anniversary present, for me, a trip to venice and a stay at the Al Sole. My husband had emailed previously to say any little something, i,e touch for our anniversary would be nice, he was thinking that they may leave,. a couple of roses, small box of chocs, bottle of prosecco, whatever, but nothing. After all he was paying 225.00 pounds a night for 3 nights for a canal room, so 680 pounds for the break, b and b. When we arrived we were greeted with nothing, he was very dissappointed and went to ask the staff, though nice, looked non plussed and just shrugged. he then arranged and paid for a bottle of prosecco to be in our room for when we got back from our first afternoon out in venice. Having said that, The Al Sole is a good hotel, based in a great location for the airport, buses and not having to cart luggage too far over all the cobbled street and bridges, venice has. The breakfast has been mentioned in many previous reviews, it is extremely dissappointing, bread rolls, cheese, salami, awful cakes and not fresh orange juice. Very poor for the price. Sometimes you do, on entering the hotel get a really bad water smell, but not in the rooms. So when you have passed reception, your ok. Overall enjoyed our stay, but that special touch and a good bfast would have been perfect.
