mosquitos, cold, inconvenient location
Posted Oct 24, 2015
We closed all the windows but there were still many mosquitos in the room. Our hotel room was so cold, We wore as much clothes inside the room as what we wore outside. Heating was not allowed until Oct 15.
Breakfast was the worst I had in Italy, only sliced stale bread and crackers were served. That's it. The juice was watered down. It was strange to me that the color of the juice was pale and translucent. After I tasted it, I found out it was watered down. It's awful. And breakfast is surcharge, 5 euros per person. You might as well take your 5 euros to go somewhere else to buy a hot coffee and one semi-decent croissant.
The room looked tired. The towels and bed sheets were old. The towels were really old, they were scratchy and dry.
The location is far away from San Marco. For tourists, you will get lost and take longer to get to San Marco. The hotel is in the middle of nowhere, a very quiet residential area, almost no human around at night. There's no good restaurants near the hotel. If you try to find a store selling you water and essential stuff near the hotel, you will not find it. It's really inconvenient. At night, there's very little street light and it was really dark near the hotel. It's not pleasant to walk back your hotel in the dark. After we went back to our hotel room, we didn't go out at night. Because it's really dark nearby and away from San Marco, it's hard to find the way. We wasted the night by staying in the hotel.
