Convenient but

The hotel location is very convenient to visit the very center of the city. But the atomosphere is a bit too dark in the public space, also the reception is in the next building, so that if some customers (like people in a group tour) behave too noisy or disturbing to the others, there was no hotel staff to manage it. The breakfast wasn't so good as in the same category of the hotel (coffee didn't have no taste, not only me but any of my guests during my stay couldn't drink.)

I made a reservation for myself and 2 daughters (triple room) through disount website. I guess you get what you pay for. We were directed accross a very dirty carpet (maybe due to flooding in Venice...however we visited other hotels and didn't find them in such disrepair)to a room that smelled so putrid, we had to hold our breath. When I called the front desk for a change of room, I was told someone would come up to clean room. They informed me that it was the cannal water that smelled fowell.Well, not so, because we had walked to the hotel and there was not such smell anywhere but in this room (and perhaps a few others).A chamber maid came in with a bottle of air freshner, wich didn't mix very well with the existing smell. I went down to the registration and pleaded for change of room, first I was told by a very unfriendly receptionist that there were no other rooms available. Eventually someone admitted that the 05 (I'm not sure anymore about this number)line had backed up sewer problems, and finally agreed to change us rooms. Unfortunately by then my kids and I were so sick from that smell we couldn't wait to leave hotel.

Top Local Tips for Venice

Eating Out Do not eat in the tourist traps between San Marco and the Pl Di Roma. They charge stupid prices for quite sorry looking food. Instead head out into the backstreets where you get better quality food for less. Consider buying the lonely planet guide to Venice as it has all the best non touristy places to eat amongst other things, ie a map (essential).

Watch out for rip-offs I've never been more comprehensively ripped off for eating out than in Venice - luckily, it's such a lovely city it's easy to forgive it. Do some thorough research before you go - try Chow! Venice, a guide you can buy through Amazon - and avoid the obvious tourist traps. If an item on the menu is priced by weight, be sure to ask the price beforehand. Burano is a great lunch stop and far more fun than Murano.

vaparetto Skip the gondola ride if you are on a budget and use the vaparetto to see Venice from the water. An all day pass is great to float along the city. Try and get out to the other less touristy parts like Lido or the Jewish Ghetto (great food there).
