My first impression upon seeing the Albergo Marin was "how quaint". The outdoor seating area with a back drop of a red wall with vines growing on it, made me feel like I was in a Tuscan Villa.
Giacamo greeted us upon entry and checked us in. He was very nice. Spoke fluent English. He accommodated my request for a ground floor room as I had 2 suitcases and there is no elevator in the establishment. He also gave us excellent ideas on what to do, where to visit, and how to get to each place with ease.
Welcome drinks were served as Giacamo gave us the directions and information.
The room we had was spacious and very clean.
The front desk is manned 24/7 so if we needed anything there was someone always there.
The Albergo Marin is a 3 minute walk to the Venezia S Lucia which was extremely convenient as we had arrived from Rome via train. The ferry stop is also in the same location. Walking to the San Marco Sqaure is also very easy from here.
I only had one disappointing encounter with an employee. She was quite brusque and little impatient. Luckily I only saw her the one time. Over all our stay was nice and am planning to stay here again when we next visit Venice.
