Upon arriving in Venice we were dropped by a water taxi about 2 blocks from the hotel, we carried our luggage across the pebbled streets and over stairs to arrive at the Hotel. We met the proprietor Giuseppe in the alley, he didn't ask for our reservation, but started telling us which rooms he had available, I wasn't sure if we were getting the rooms we booked so I inquired if the rooms would still have private baths. The proprietor became enraged and began yelling at me ( we still had not been invited to the reception area, but were still in the alley) I said nothing as I was a little in shock, he continued yelling and telling me I should sleep on the streets again I said nothing, but knew I would have to find another hotel. It was very difficult as it was a holiday weekend, I was with a party of 6, my friends decided to stay there. The proprietor told them he would not charge for my room, but of course he did and charged for 2 nights rather than the one. When they checked out he told them he only accepted cash even though we were told in advance that he accepted all major credit cards. Needless to say I would not recommend this hotel.
