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

Our first trip to Venice. Hotel Principe is a nice hotel and our room was small but very clean. The room was booked by our tour company so we didn't have a canal view, but some folks did upgrade for an extra 60E per night. The dinner provided for the tour group was very good. Breakfast buffet was fine with something for everyone's taste. Only interacted with front desk staff and they were polite and helpful. Our friend had a problem with heat/cold in her room and they moved her right away. Hotel is located in walking distance to train station and connection to bus station but about 45 minute walk to St. Mark's, etc. Restaurants and small shops all along the street so can accommodate any budget. We enjoyed our stay here. Collapse
Wonderful Stay Excellent Location

We only stayed 2 nights but we loved it. Breakfast was hearty and we were so close to everything. Great staff. Bathroom was much larger than expected and ceilings were so high. Loved the towel warmer.

I originally booked and paid for a double standard room for 2 people, on the day of check-in I said to the hotel staff it's now only for 1 person. They gave me a single room in the attic and insisted it's a double room which is what i have already paid for even though it is now for 1 person only. It's obviously a single bed, the wardrobe and doors needed repainting, there aren't even a lock on the door from the inside, the curtains aren't proper ones which should be able to block the light from outside. Overall I am very angry, unsafe and disappointed with this hotel, it just doesn't worth the price at all. This hotel is more like 2 star hotel to me. Collapse
Not bad but expensive for what we paid

I visited this Venice and stayed in this hotel just a few weeks ago for three nights and reading the reviews I was a little reluctant after booking. When we arrived, we found the hotel is in a centralised location with good links and plenty of shops and restaurants. It is only around 30 minutes to St. Marks square and around 15 minutes to the Rialto bridge. We booked half board and the restaurant did some amazing fish dishes. If you are into fine dining you will love the restaurant even though it is really pricey but as someone who is a vegetarian, i felt my choices were limited. They give you the same menu each evening of which there are only a handful of veg dishes so if you're here a couple of nights you'll find yourself ordering the same thing at least once or twice. The service was however exceptional from the waiters. The breakfast buffet was also quite limited for vegetarians, only compromising of eggs, cheese, cereal and fruit although they had some bacon and ham for meat eaters. The hotel itself is nice but a little dated. We had a room by the side of the hotel so there was no view but you get what you pay for. The room itself was okay. It was a twin bed room which we didn't mind and it was clean with ample pillows. The shower in the bathroom was however small and mouldy. It also leaked and left a horrible smell of sewers after being used which stank up the whole room. We found our floor (1st floor) generally smelled of sewers in the corridor when we went down for breakfast but after the shower had been used our room also stank. The receptionist on night duty at the desk was a right old miserable sod and we found not very helpful. If i was to book again it would only be because it is so easy to catch a bus to the airport from this hotel or a water bus and the hotel has its own dock. Collapse
