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.

... br> We followed the location instructions from our landlord and lo and behold we arrived at the B n B to find Gianni standing outside, possibly catching up on a little nicotine. Into the entry hall which was empty save for doors leading out to the boat mooring. Up two flights of stone stairs, crumbling here and there, and we were at reception. Moments later in our room, which was large and lit entirely with a few 40 watt bulbs. Alfred Hitchcock would have loved it. The bathroom ...
... water buses of the night (thank God I married her). It's such an amazing experience to be standing there with her as you see the Grand Canal by night. Once we disembarked, we stopped by the local pastry shop to grab some gnocchi and cookies to go along with our wine. The young lady who was working was fascinated by our 'Americanness' and preferences for certain things in Italy. Speaking to locals gives you such a different perspective on ...
This week I (Julie) am writing the blog. We are in Venice sitting in our hotel room watching BBC while I write this blog. Nick loves the fact the only English station is the news but I am seriously wishing I can watch some normal TV in English. I have watched Keeping up with the Kardashians in French and Italian this week which is very funny but I can't understand a single word. Italian Friends was easier to pick up though!
We started ...
... collecting our baggage and finding our way to our hotel. Our second day in Venice was spent exploring Venice and its surrounding islands by the water. First stop was the island of Morano which has been made famous by its glass factories. Here we watched beautiful glass chandeliers being made by the skill glass blowers in their factories and spent a few hours working our way through the hundreds of glassware shops. Finally I settled on buying a pretty set of ...
... the cars. Boo!!!!!!!!! We arrive in Venice and we spent the first day exploring the area around our hotel. We went to get something to eat at this restaurant where they played 80s music and our waiter trie to sing along. I stress "tried" because he wasn't that good but he was funny! The next day we went to an island where they make glass (Murano). I bought mom a present for Christmas and I also bought a little present for myself. I hope I like ;-). Well off to ...
