Nice hotel close to the main square
Posted Sep 21, 2016
The room was nice and clean and gave us plenty of room to visit and relax. Some parts of the hotel are definitely dated (especially some of the hallways) but overall a pleasant place to stay. The breakfast provided was good and offered a lot of variety, even some hot options (eggs, bacon, toast, etc.). The beds could be a little more comfortable but we were so tired, we had little difficulty sleeping. The air conditioning worked well and we had a nice little kitchenette to use. When asked about getting to Murano Island, the front desk staff informed us that they provide a free water taxi to Murano Island and we would be responsible for getting back on our own. We arrived at a glass making factory and watched some of the beautiful artwork being created. We were then taken for a tour of the glass shop, where we were given the opportunity to purchase if desired. We did not feel pressured to purchase but all of us did and the water taxi returned us back to our starting point at no cost. Overall, our visit to Venice was a pleasant one.
