Short Break in Venice

We (my wife Pat & I) visit Northern Italy every year and usually spend some time in Venice as there is always something new to do or see. This year we stayed at the Principe Hotel on the Grand canal and near the railway station. Once you got passed the usual efficient but unfriendly reception staff everything was fine. The next day was a visit to Padua, again the highly efficient rail system made the journey easy It started raining that night and continued until Noah started building. The next day we wanted to go a walking tour deatiled in the guide book "the Ghetto to St Marks" the choice was to get wet or don't go, so we got wet but managed to see some magnificant sights the Jesuit Church with wonderful ceilings and paintings, the church of St John and St Paul (good coffee in the square) and after many twists and turns and turnbacks we reached St Marks Square which was flooded but bonus no dive bombing birds around. we managed to reach the Doges palace and though by this time we were cold and wet we had a good visit. quick walk back to the hotel, shower hair dryer on the shoes, cup of tea and we were ready to do the Grand Canal waterbus but is was getting dark,the windows were steamed up and there was no map of the stops. reached St Mark's walked to next stop and quickly back to railway station. Dry off again, some inner warmth and another good meal. the walk boards were out but we did manage to buy some more icecream (10pm dark and cold) but we had been on a diet since Christmas. Met some nice tourists and they were amazed that two 60 year olds could walk all day and not bother about the rain, beauty exists in the rain, in the dark as well as the sun. Best part SuperBreak had given us a wonderful bonus as we had used them for ten trips and the family gave us vouchers for Christmas. we have a photograph of St mark's square with no tourists and no birds. Will we be back by SuperBreak we will be!! Collapse

The hotel is in a great location, we got the bus from Marco Polo airport and it is a short walk along the canal from Pizzale Roma to the hotel. Reception staff were friendly on arrival and a porter carried our bags to the room. The hotel is very warm, which is nice when you step in from the chilly streets! The room can get a bit stuffy but we kept the window open to avoid this. The beds are firm and comfortable although the pillows are a bit too hard and this impacted on our sleep some nights. Breakfast can get very busy, but the staff are always restocking food and clearing tables to allow everyone to get seated. Good selection of hot and cold food, easily the best eggs I've had at a breakfast buffet! We found the location the best, there are many bars and restaurants in the vicinity without the masses of people and pricetag you get with places closer to St Mark's Square. Collapse

My husband and I stayed here as part of a tour group. I dubbed our room the yellow room (132) as it is painted in light yellow, and an armoire with yellow highlights which I liked. It's a comfortable room with enough space to move about. It is without a view, so those who prefer a room with a balcony may prefer to request a different room. The staff are efficient and try to be helpful. They don't let the language barrier get in the way of their service. Breakfast was satisfying with both cold and hot choices. Italians prepare scrambled eggs on the mushy side and bacon on the limp side. No crispy bacon in the hotels in Venice (per our guide). I didn't mind this at all. The buffet is intended for tourists. Don't expect classic Italian breakfast, although the coffee machines dispense cappuccino and macchiato. Then there were the little polenta cakes that my husband enjoyed so much. We were served dinner on our first night here. I had no complaints. It was a four course meal composed of spinach cannelloni, salad greens, baked chicken and potatoes, and panna cotta for dessert. There was wine, of course. It was a satisfying meal. The location is ideal as it is only about 5 minutes walk from the train station and vaporetto stops. There are plenty of restaurants and bakeries in the area. The hotel is 40 minutes walk to Piazza San Marco. One barely notices the time and the distance as there are many shops along the way that catch attention. Given the chance, I would stay here again. Collapse

The location of this hotel is perfect, being in walking distance from the bus and train stations, which means you can transfer with your luggage easily and cheaply. The public transport ticket kiosks are here and you can catch vaporettas to almost anywhere. It is a lively area with a wide variety of bars, restaurants and street traders. Our third floor room with a large balcony overlooking the Grand Canal was welcomingly warm and thick carpets made it cosy and helped keep the hotel quiet. A glamorous room with toile and chandeliers, but a little shabby around the edges which we felt was to be expected and added to its venetian charm. Spotlessly clean, with a very comfortable firm bed. Helpful check-in staff, but there was no information on the Venice Carnival events. Good free Wi-Fi. The formal restaurant has a limited breakfast choice and the service can be chaotic with uncleared tables, and no direction from the mute staff. However, there was no rush as breakfast was available until 10.00 and the excitement of eating overlooking the busy Grand Canal made up for this. Collapse

So simple to find from piazza or train station few minutes walk. Hotel reception area beautiful and staff very helpful at check in and throughout stay. Porter shown us to our room carrying our bags. Our room was absolutely stunning not one complaint to be had. Amazing views from 2 balconies over the grand canal magnificent marano glass chandelier which was huge, beautiful comfortable clean bed and chaise. Bathroom had heated flooring and walls! Clean and tiled throughout shower was lovely at the end of a long day walking around the city! Breakfast was abundant with an excellent selection of hot and cold food with views of the grand canal from your table, staff again very helpful as they were in our one visit to the bar one evening lovely selection of drinks and a great atmosphere. Water busses to St Marks square and rialto area very accessible from this hotel, would recommend the venizia 72 hr travel pass with airport transfer included it literally got us everywhere we wanted to be all weekend. Just a note be careful when eating out as there are many hidden charges in your bill which they explain as taxes! Cannot wait to arrange another trip! Collapse
