Nice Hotel but a lot of noise from a smoothie bar
Posted Jun 25, 2016
This hotel is located in two buildings. One building is next to a side canal, the other kitty corner from it. I requested a room overlooking the side canal, but for what ever reason I received a room in the annex building. Maybe it was because I needed a triple room.
At any rate, there is a fruit smoothie bar at the corner of the main building of the hotel. It is the only smoothie bar as far as I can tell in Venice. They play their Caribbean/pop music too loud, and I could hear it at midnight in my room with the windows closed, which, by the way, was not that close to the smoothie bar. I spoke to the hotel staff about the music when I checked out, and I felt better after they told me it was an ongoing problem and other customers had complained about it also. They said they are trying to tell them to turn the music down, but the establishment is apparently only sporadically cooperative.
The other issue we had was even though the property is non-smoking, the patrons in the room next door smoked and the smoke was some how channeled into our room via the air conditioning duct. No doubt the smokers were the amount of smokers in Europe annoying people with their cigarette smoke is beyond disbelief.
These two issues aside, it is a good hotel in a good location in the center of Venice.
