This was our third visit to Venice so we had a good idea of the advantages of staying at the Bucintoro. It faces out to the South West, over the lagoon, is out of the frantic hubbub of the central tourist area yet, because of Arsenale being on the No 1 vaporetto line, it is linked to everywhere you would want to go, from Piazzale Roma ( where the Airport No 5 bus drops you) as far as the Lido The Murano vaporetto 4.1 and 4.2 also stops at Arsenale,
The hotel itself was really excellent, the staff friendly and exceptionally helpful. They even did most effective 1st aid to my shoe with Bostik and a clamp when the sole separated from the upper!
Our room was up in the roof, rather small but with all the space one really needed. It was spotless. The bed was very comfortable and the lighting more than adequate. A kettle and cups, with appropriate supplies was there and the safe was simple to use. The bathroom had been carefully thought through, shower, basin, bidet AND a plastic stool which would do double duty, either for use in the shower itself if standing was a problem as well as a seat if one needed to use the bidet as an emergency foot bath!
The breakfast room was immaculate, the buffet generous and the ladies keeping an eye on supplies and taking the orders for tea or coffee both efficient and pleasant. The food on offer ranged from juices, cereals, fruit, rolls, ham, speck, salami, cheeses, hard boiled eggs, cherry tomatoes, croissants, jams and two luscious cakes. Far better than home!
Thank you Bucintoro for a lovely five-night stay. For a special occasion, it was well worth the outlay. .
