I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. The way we ended up staying there was not kosher. I had booked a room to a different hotel online (Hotel Etrusca) and when we arrived at that location we were told that they had to switch us to Hotel Veneto which was apparently "associated" with Hotel Etrusca. The reason for this was unclear, especially because I had the reservation print out and had booked the room in advance. So there we stood with our luggage and then we had to haul it another 500 meters or more to the next location. When we arrived at Hotel Veneto I was less than impressed. The place was not very clean and we waited 45 minutes for our room to be prepared. What this consisted of I'm not sure because there were only sheets on our beds. We had to ask for linens and blankets. The bathroom was tiny and the shower head dripped continuously. There was no way I would dream of taking a shower in the less than spotless bathroom. Also, there was no breakfast available at this location so we had to walk back to the other hotel for our meal. The final kicker is that we were charged twice for our one night stay. We had to pay cash in person because their credit card machine was broken "just that day" and when I checked my credit card bill I realized I had already paid for the entire cost of the stay. I will be demanding a refund from this location! DO NOT stay here!!
