Ok for a short stayPosted Aug 16, 2013 on Hotels.com
Hotel is located very close to the train station. Just a few minutes walk. Hotel is kind of old and the air condition is not working very well, especially in a hot summer day. We were ok to stay just one night.

Very acceptable 2 star hotel in a great locationPosted Aug 14, 2013 on Hotels.com
Hotel florida is a pleasant, basic 2 star hotel located about 80m from the station. We had a 2 night stay in room 23 which is a decent size with an ensuite. The room's decor was dated but seemed 'very Venice'. The bathroom was very small with a strange shower in a 3 foot bath which I have no desire to ever use again, but it did the job and it was nice to have the ensuite facility in a 2 star hotel. The breakfast was basic continental. Crossiants and rolls with a plate of ham, salami and cheese. It was edible and the coffee was decent. The hotel staff were very pleasant, incredibly helpful and considerate. They provided a free map and lots of useful information. All in all I would recommend the hotel. It is very well located in Venice and the amenities are more than acceptable for a 2 star hotel.

Amazing location but horrible bathroomPosted May 29, 2013
Pros: The friendliness of the staff
Cons: The horrible bathroom!
Location: The location is by far the best thing about this hotel! Centrally located and a short walk away from the Grand Canal.
As far as location goes, this Hotel is located at an amazing location, a short walk away from the grand canal and lots of shops and restaurants. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The only part that was extremely disappointing was the bathroom - it was very small, the shower had mold and mildew on it, and it smelled bad, even though there was an air freshener in there. So it seems like what you're really paying for is the location of the hotel, which, once again, was amazing! The rest of Venice seems like a labyrinth and it's very difficult to find things, but this hotel was in an open area and very easy to find without much walking required.

Convenient but not so comfortablePosted Apr 21, 2013
Pros: Convenience, friendliness and pleasantness of the staff
Cons: The beds were so hard and uncomfortable
Location: Absolutely great - a couple of minutes from the station
The hotel is in a really convenient location; only a couple of minutes from the station. The staff are pleasant and helpful and you can leave your luggage after checking out. There are stairs to the rooms so this can be tricky with heavy luggage and, as with all 3 of the hotels & B&B's we used this trip, the beds are really hard and uncomfortable. This may just be an Italian thing but it is the only downside to our Venice visit. Maybe this improves if you can afford to step up your accommodation to the next level. I would recommend it from the point of view of location and convenience but perhaps it's better for younger visitors who don't suffer the aches and pains of sleeping on a hard bed!

Great little hotel for all adults.Posted Feb 26, 2013
Pros: It's location.
Cons: The bed is not very comfortable, but good enough.
Location: Spot on! Walk out the train station, turn left past the first church, down the little alley. Maybe 150m max.
The Florida is a very charming hotel. It's chintzy appearance is what's charming. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. The location is great - right near the main train station, the boat transport for the Grand Canal and a good starting point for walking around Venice. There is no view, as it is up a small alley, but that is ok since you walk around all day admiring all sorts of views! There are also many good restaurants nearby, especially the one right next door - Il Sandolo - the food is so good for the price.

PleasantPosted Feb 24, 2012
Pros: Staff, central heating, cozy
Cons: Twin beds in a (small) double room
Location: Nice and close to the station, walking distance to everywhere (as long as you don't mind crowds and bridges)
Very enjoyable place to stay with lovely staff. The hotel was charming but the room was a little bit on the small side.

Good ChoicePosted Oct 27, 2011 on Hotels.com
Location was great and service on the desk (Alex) was also very good and helpful. The washroom in the room is new and clean but the hotel is old and need renovation. I selected this hotel because I had an early flight and I needed a hotel close to the Bus station (5-10 Min to Plaza.Roma).
