Travel Blogs from Venice
... As our cruise comes to an end it's sad to leaving this beautiful floating resort, but good to know the unlimited supply of food and drink will end, it's so easy to say make good choices !!!!! We also meet a wonderful family on board, hopefully we'll catch up in Rome for a couple of cold treats! What a journey this has been, amazing sunsets sailing through the Greek Islands, dolphins jumping along side the ship, a great first experience with a cruise ...
... the guy promised he would be there in about an hour so we should just go grab a beer and then come back. Being too tired we bought a beer from across the street and posted up like bums on the street corner... Can't tell you how many fleeting looks we received, but anyway, a hour and a half later the guy calls us back and says he can't make it tonight and that he will refund us the money. Well great, still no place to sleep and it's almost midnight in a city where we have no map ...
... that night because the minute I hit the bed I passed out. The next morning we were up and out early to catch the bus back into Venice. We decided to go to the island of Murano to check out where all of the glass is made. It was a very small but cute island and the ferry ride was about half an hour. We were lucky enough to see a demonstration of how the various glass figures are actually made. The glass almost looks like melted plastic when it's extremely ...
I apologise for the lapse in entries. I'll let Italo Calvino make excuses for me this time.
'Perhaps I am afraid of losing Venice, if I speak of it,
or perhaps, in speaking of other cities
I have already lost it, little by little.'
On the way to our final Italian stay-over, we swung by that famed fair place they call Verona. In summation, we saw Juliet's balcony, rubbed her Shakespearean boobs, scored some free Red Bull and headed back ...
Yesterday we were told by hotel manager that if we needed gumboots tomorrow we could ask him for them, I thought he was joking... As I woke I could hear the tiniest bits of rain, I couldn't hear much so I left the windows shut and played my morning session of Pokemon :) after playing for a few hours Nikki was up and I let her know it was a little wet outside and we might need our jackets. How wrong I was! It had been raining all night, the water was half way up our legs and we ...

Historical Traveler Reviews A Tribute To Music Venice
Great value for money
This was a great find...Venice is an expensive city and this is great value for money. The location is perfect, just a couple of hundred meters from St Mark's square. The room was small but nice. The breakfast is served in the restaurant next door, which I think is ideal as you can sit outside and enjoy the view.
Best Value Small Hotel
We spent 7 nights in this very small hotel and had a very good time. The room might be a little small but the furnishings are great the bathroom is great the view is great and so is the location. The lobby is small but it does have an elavator (some don't) and seems to have been recently remodeled.The staff couldn't have been more helpful. This is really a gem that our agent found for us. I recommend this to everyone. I would stay again and again.
Es handelt sich um eine kleine Residenz bzw. kleines Hotel mit 14 Zimmern. Der Eingangsbereich ist sehr klein, genauer gesagt steht dort nur der Empfangstisch und sonst nichts anderes.
Sehr schönes Hotel
Wir haben im März 2006 für vier Nächte für ein Benefizkonzertes im Residenza, Venedig gewohnt. Das Hotel ist sehr schön, sehr sauber und es ist noch fasst alles neu; das Zimmer war im venezianischen Stil eingerichtet und sehr geräumig; dass Badezimmer übrigens auch. Das Personal war freundlich. Das Frühstück wurde im angrenzenden Restaurant serviert und war nicht gerade üppig; ein Croissant, zwei Scheiben Toast mit Butter und Marmelade und jeden Morgen eine Kaffee. Liegt sehr günstig in der Nähe des Markusplatzes und hat einen schönen Ausblick auf den Kanal. Würde auf jeden Fall wieder hinfahren.
A Small Tribute
we stayed for three nights in feb.the location is superb,the view brilliant.The room was alittle small but very clean the bathroom very clean and new. The breakfast arrangement is a little poor you have to go next door. I understand they are to create a breakfast room within the hotel,but are having some delays with the planning proceedure,sounds like England,however it will be an improvement when its comleted.However the positives at Tribute far outweigh any negatives, excellent value recommended,we will return.

Very nice hotel
We spent four nights in Tribute to Music Residenza, Venice, in March 2006. The Hotel is very nice,very clean, everything it's almost new; the room was furnished in venetian style and was spacious and so it was the bathroom. The staff was friendly; The breakfast was served in a small restaurant nearby and it was not substantial-a croissant and two pieces of toast with butter and jam and also a coffee every morning; very good location near St. Marco Square, nice channel view.Good price. We would definitely stay there again.
This is a small residence/hotel with 14 rooms. The public area of the hotel is quite small and actually there is only the reception desk and no more than that.
Like others have said its not obvious where it is tucked away behind the souvenir shop but its wonderful once you find it.
Sitting in the bath and watching the vaporetta's bringing the people to Venice each day must be one of the best bathroom experiences to be had.
The rooms are all beautifully decorated and very clean. Staff very helpful.
Very close to San Marco and all the vaporetta stops.
Am going back again in February and can't wait to wake up to see that wonderful view once again.
Very good value for money in an expensive city like Venice.
We stayed at this hotel at the beginning of September 2005 to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The position was wonderful, on the Grand Canal , 5 minutes walk to San Marco Square. It is somewhat difficult to locate as it is 4 floors of rooms above a sovenier shop with no sign outside and you do have to make a note of the number of the building, which is: 4127. This Residensa was opened in March 2005, so everything is fresh and new inside, decorated in venetian style. There is a small reception just inside, who are extremely helpful. Beakfast is at the restaurant to the left on the prom. No restaurant or bar inside just B&B. The rooms are lovely, we stayed in Vivaldi on the first floor, which overlooked the canal. Paid around 100 Euros a night for a double ensuite, a good deal with a great location!!
Great Value in Venice
Stayed for one night in May 2005. Outside looks a bit shabby (like many Venetian establishments) but hides a nicely renovated interior. Views from the rooms are superb looking out over the lagoon, it's great to stand on the balcony and watch the world go by on the promenade. Just a 5 min walk from St Mark's square. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is served at the next-door restaurant. The bathroom was lovely. Overall for the E100 we paid I don't think you can get better in Venice.
