Excellent hotel. Easy to get to from either bus station or Train Station. Water bus stop opposite. Staff very helpful and friendly. Good free wi fi access in hotel. Breakfasts very good and typical with the usual nice selection of cakes if you are into that. Good selection of restaurants nearby. Our best find after 5 days was the ' Brek' self service restaurant a short walk over the bridge opposite the hotel. You select the meal / drinks you want from the counter and pay at the till. Even does small carafe of wine ( 2 glasses) for 1.75 euro. Great prices for Venice if, like us, you get fed up of paying for over priced meals with table cover charges, service charges and over priced drinks on top. Vaporetta 2-3 day tickets are worth getting to see all the nearby islands and all the canal network. High tides in Venice can cause problems for getting about on foot especially around the popular St Marks square which was flooded when we visited and raised walkways are used to gain access to the flooded areas. This however is only temporary.
We also caught a train to Verona 80 mins away and spent the day there. Return Tickets cost 36 euro each. But plenty to see and an impressive Roman amphitheatre and of course the Romeo & Julliet house. Cheaper to buy the daily Verona City leisure pass when you get there, gets you into most of the major attractions and includes free bus travel.
