Hi i took my girlfriend on a trip to Venice and stayed in the Centrale Hotel for 3 nights. We arrived at around 10 in the evening on fri just gone (25/4/14) the man on night shift didnt speak a word of English which wasnt very helpful after being given our room key. The room we were given was tiny, the room door opened past the bed and caught it every time it opened, then the gap between the end of the bed and dresser was so small you had to side step past it. There was no information in the room regarding cleaners/breakfast/checking in/out etc. There was no kettle, no iron, no key to the safe in the wardrobe. wifi was a ridiculous price to use. All the furniture was in poor condition There were about 4 coat hangers which other residents must have supplied as they were different colours and sizes. First thing in the morning i went downstairs to ask about a room change, on the way i noticed other rooms were being cleaned and noticed we had been given the worst room on the floor, the room next to us was the same size but used as a single. The rooms opposite were also doubles but proper sized as in the hotel photos. After a long argument with the new hotel receptionist he decided to let me change rooms but at 10.30am the next day. I argued the toss as did he trying to convince me the room i had was a double and all the other double rooms were booked. Eventually after not budging he let me switch rooms but was very arrogant for the next 2 days. My experience of the Centrale wasnt a very good one, the location is quite good as there is a supermarket across the road and also a bus stop on the route to Venice island, which is beautiful by the way. There are also shops bars and takeaways scattered around a mile radious of the hotel. My advice would be to read reviews and dont be worried to pay an extra £100 it will probably be worth while!!! Have a nice holiday.
p.s Any more than 3-4 days in Venice would be too much 3 days was plenty for me and the girlfriend its also quite expensive in certain areas.
