Nice Little Place
Posted Sep 30, 2015 on Hotels
The Antico Fiore is more a pensione than a hotel proper - it's pretty small and only has four rooms. These are clean and attractive, and while my bathroom smelled of damp, that's hardly unusual in Venice. Everything worked perfectly well, and the faux 18th century décor was rather charming. The staff were helpful and friendly. My one criticism concerns the breakfasts I paid for. Even allowing for cultural difference, they are pretty random: a hard boiled egg, nasty machine-made coffee, various stale breads and pastries, a bit of salami, a bowl of cornflakes, a glass of cranberry juice and few slices of peach. You might want to start your day with that...I wasn't so sure. Certainly not worth paying the extra for. On the whole though, a nice little place and an enjoyable stay. One Venetian tip - keep your windows shut if you can, because there are a lot of mosquitos around and they are rather fond of biting!
