"Right Across from The Train Station"
We walked out of the train station and crossed the foot bridge to the left to the other side of the canal. It was a short walk, but the bridge is steep, with a lot of steps, so take your time. There are a lot of fellows with 2 wheel carts offering to help you, but be careful. The couple who came to the hotel after us we distracted by a cart guy, had the woman's purse stolen. We have traveled overseas before, and know enough to keep our personal items secure in crowds.
The hotel is very nice, clean, and in a great location. We were greeted at the desk by Gionni, who put my Dad and son in a very nice room on the forth floor. He then offered a free upgrade for my wife's and my room to a canopy bed suite. The room is in the next building, down a walk through alley. We accepted the upgrade, and we were delighted by the spacious room, upgraded bathroom and shower, and the canopy bed. The view was only into the alley, but we enjoyed watching people walking below. There was always a pleasant breeze from the open windows into the room.
The free breakfast was good and plentiful. The serving staff kept the buffet clean and well stocked, and would quickly provide cups of "American coffee" to our table. The entire staff was great, always there to provide information and advice. Gionni was exceptionally nice, and took the time to tell us all about Venice and the area. He even gave us information regarding the cruise ship and ship's terminal. Next trip, we will stay here again.
