Disappointing is an understatement
Posted Jun 27, 2015
Firstly, the good points
The staff were very friendly when checking in and spoke very good English (probably better than my own grasp of it).
The location of the hotel is brilliant - it's very close to all the major transport links to Venice.
The room has an aesthetically pleasing classic Venetian look (though hides some secrets - more on this later).
The air conditioning unit was very good and had grate control over the room temperature.
The bed was supposedly a double - however it is best described as two single beds clumsily mashed together. Although they seperate throughout the night, this is the least of your worries as the moment you attempt to sleep on it you realise that breezeblocks are more comfortable to sleep on. Only Fred Flinstone would be able to get a good night's kip on this.
We were located on the ground floor, and although I realise that someone has to take this room, window is contantly open, with no option to close it. This led to paranoia about people peering into the room.
The safe in the room did not work throughout our trip - although the staff assured us that it would be fixed, it never was. This meant that we had to carry our passports and Euros throughout Venice (more paranoia).
Additionally, on the last night of our stay, a flea popped up next to me while I was on the bed. This little guy took 5 chunks out of me and my girlfriend (I'm still stratching while I write).
The stone floor was very dirty.
