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.

... Passed a street that at one point turned into a canal that looked very interesting. When we got back to the area near the Piazza San Marcos, what a change! Place was packed, people standing in long lines to got inside the church and other places. The Rialto bridge was equally crowded and you had to watch for the person stopping to take pictures and blocking the path.
Still all very interesting especially watching the ...
... directed to the next sales desk.....but we finally found the correct ticket booth to purchase them so we were set to jump on board in the morning.
Unfortunately next we had to pack our bags ready for our departure.
Saw our Host in the Square at 7.15am and he couldn't believe we were heading off so early.
Great weather conditions, unlike on our arrival day, so everything went well.
Grazie for a most enjoyable visit
... husband. I opted to stay and check out the city. I didn't really mind having the time to myself, visiting the shops in the piazza, and walking by the lake despite the rain. However just as the group was leaving for their ride, the captain got word that due to the rains the level of water in the lake was rising and the the lock needed to be closed. This meant he had to move the boat by 11:00 am and the riders needed to ...
... by his father who competed and won many races as a younger man. Apparently, it is quite difficult to learn to steer a gondolier and it took him two years to learn. It was 7.30 pm when we set out on the gondolier, but because it stays light for so long it was still quite bright. The best time to ride in a gondola we thought ! After our gondola ride we took a walk through the windy streets and found a little place to eat, it was
after nine o'clock by then. We ...
