TravelPod Member ReviewsAbbazia Deluxe Venice
If you're staying in Venice for more than 2 nights, it's better to get a more centrally located hotel but for one night and arriving/leaving by train, Abbazia Deluxe can't be beat. There are two Abbazia: the regular and the deluxe. These are the two closest hotels from the train station and if you don't know where they are, you may walk past them (like we did).
Like many Venice hotels, Abbazia Deluxe doesn't have elevator and the reception area is on the second floor. The Lady Giulia helped us carry some of our luggage. Despite being 10 in the morning, our room was ready and fortunately, it was on the second floor so we didn't have to drag our bags through more stairs. Our room had a canal view and it was beautiful, especially the next morning when people started their activities. Giulia gave us a map and told us the city had not changed since the last time we were there 10 years ago.
Upon check out, the gentleman working on reception was not as friendly as Giulia (he was not rude but rather kept to himself). We actually enjoyed the breakfast. They were prepared in the lobby but no chef on duty so the only eggs available were hard boiled egg which is actually our favorite type of egg.
Overall, it was a pleasant stay but we would try something closer to the center the next time we're in Venice.

... fresh. Ryan enjoyed the creamy pesto and I the extremely spicy arriabiata. We ate the in the narrow alley and then made our way back to our apartment stopping again for gelato and a bottle of red wine. Ryan wanted to know if I was cool with going back to the apartment and I said of course as I thought it was at least 8 pm...No it was 6 pm but I was ready to call it a night! We sat in our apartment sipping merlot while listening to the karaoke stylings of the italians at the bar ...

In Murano watched a glass blowing demonstration. Very interesting, and totally different to what we'd seen at Waterford in Ireland. It looked so easy and so casual, though do suspect that that was years of practice. Basically all the shops were selling items of glass, from small trinkets and ...
... or so the sign said) and spent an hour lost in old books, art prints, and postcards. It was amazing! The store often floods, so the books are piled high in boats, gondolas, and bathtubs. Even the kids found some books to bring home.
We took a gondola ride and Abby finally got the Venetian mask she has been wanting since we were in Rome! It was a great day!
... I asked about glasses and was immediately ushered upstairs behind the chained off area to 24 carat gold infused glasses, for only 600 euro (about $900) for a set of 6....um, yea....no. I headed back downstairs with the other peasants and bought a set for around $90. Unreal! Our next stop on the tour was Torcella island which seemed like fields of grass and not much else which was a change from main ...
... I said years ago that I'd never fly Lufthansa again after a flight from Chicago to Munich in which the plane cabin must have been 85 degrees the whole way. Once again, our plane cabin was hot. Not as hot as on our previous flight, but still way too warm. There was a pillow, blanket and headphones on every seat when we arrived -- for no extra charge. Too bad it was too hot to use the blankets which were ...
