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.

... we came here. Hands down, favourite city! Our first day we got here around noon and it was a beautiful hot, sunny day. There was a chance of showers for our second day so we tried to see as much as we could that first day just to be safe. The city is fairly small, but it takes awhile getting to places because of the little "streets" and bridges. We walked past lots of churches (we found they all seem to look the same on the outside), piazzas (here they are called campo's), ...
Nanni brought me to the train station and got me settled on the train. Almost immediately after he left I was approached by Benjamin who proceeded to sit next to me and chat the entire trip. He is from *****ia and his father has 4 wives and 27 children. Benjamin also just got released from prison...... That was an interesting conversation! Now I am waiting for my next train to Venezia SL. They keep announcing cancellations so ...
... and instead took the time to walk, eat, be entertained by the street performers and enjoy some of the most glorious crumbling architecture we had ever seen.
I loved Venice and I wouldn't have done it any other way. To rush through Italy in an attempt to see multiple places with only a one or two days at each location does not do these amazing places justice. Take at least 3-4 days (if not more if you are so fortunate) and get a real feel for it. ...
... is much more expensive than the rest of Italy, from clothing to food.
Having said that, the prices are probably only up to what we Aussies are used to paying back home.
We had a walking tour first thing in the morning called Hidden Venice. This tour took us to some of the areas that are a little away from the usual tourist haunts. It even took us into some residential areas where the Venetians actually live. It was ...
... same time I decided that I wanted a McFlurry. They were ahead of me in line so i watched the worker place three beers on their tray. The sober girl picked up two (I doubt she was sober 10 minutes later) and the drunk girl grabbed the tray with the one left on it. That was not a good idea, the tray tipped over and the beer splattered all over the ground...and up my arm. I think cutting her off might have been a good idea after that but no, the worker just handed her another beer ...
