Hotel was in a great spot next to St.Mark's Square and a short walk from the vaporetto stop. Rooms were small and basic but comfortable and the staff were helpful. The rooms were very hot as the airconditioning was turned off so you had to open the windows at night to cool the room down but this let in all the noise from the street below which meant you had to decide which was the most annoying. I think this might be a common problem in Venice as the narrow street carry the noise. Overall a good hotel in a great position.

Top Local Tips for Venice

Walking If you enjoy walking then leave the map at your hotel and just follow the streets, its very hard to get lost and you can walk for miles, find quite stunning areas you probabily wouldn't if you followed the map. We walked to the very end of the Island where the trains and buses come in and it was a stunning view

Get a Venice Card buy a venice card so that you get the allilaguna boat from the airport and then all vapparetto travel for the whole of your stay. This means your travels to the islands as well. Saves trying to work out the right fare and whether you have bought the right ticket or not.

Fun on the water... Don't bother with the water taxis... always use the vaporettos.... Reliable, easy to use and navigate, regular service and you get to see everything at a leisurely pace. You can buy a one day pass for 13 euros or you can buy 2 day or 3 day passes. Vaporetto's are the public transport for venetians, so they can be busy, but most locals only go a few stops.. so stay on board until you get a seat and enjoy the views.... no. 1 takes you round the Grand Canal and out to San Marco. Also take the vaporetto to Murano to see the glass factories. Enjoy!
