    We have stayed two nights at this hotel in Venice. (we are travelling as part of a tour group and didn't choose this hotel.)

    We are sharing a triple room and its really quite large. The ceilings are at least 15ft high and all the rooms seem to be have been renovated recently and are very modern and clean. Our room has a separate bedroom (with king bed), bathroom (with full bath, toilet and bidet) and a lounge room and writing desk area. There are coffee/tea making facilities and in built cupboards with plenty of coat-hangers.

    Its a very quiet neighbourhood and the windows actually open but have great security grilles so you could leave them open all day if you liked. ).(Although we stayed mid-week so it may be different on the weekends

    The location of this hotel:
    Its a fair way out of the main tourist/busy parts of Venice (ie its actually about 30 mins walk to get to St Marco), but this can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on your point of view.

    I have stayed in Venice before (twice) once over near bus station (the mainland) and once right in the centre of the city. I personally like the Sant Elena and its quiet elegance. But I could see how a person who had never visited the city before might feel like they were not quite close enough to the action!

    The restaurant was great - offered a great selection of breakfast foods (we didn't eat lunch here), and dinner was also ok.

    The staff were friendly and very attentive and able to act on requests very promptly.

    Overall - we really enjoyed staying at this hotel and I would have to say that it has been my favourite hotel stay of this current 2 week tour.

    This hotel us located just 3minutes from the water bus stop and is very quaint! It's a former convent, so the grounds are very nice.

    Venezia e Bella! and Aqua Alta the Hard Way

    ... one or two museums today anyway so I headed out in it this morning to face the rain. By the time I got to a cafe just 10 minutes away my backpack was soaked and my shoes needed a bilge pump. I definitely underestimated the rain-proofness of my backpack. Rain can make even the best city a bit dreary.

    I am reminded of aqua alta, something I hoped not to see. Aqua alta is when the tide rises above normal and floods the low lying areas of the ...

    ... in particular—sentenced prisoners were led directly to the prison on the lower palace levels. Crossing the “Bridge of Sighs”, a prisoner glimpses his last view of the outside and descends into the three levels of cell blocks. The fortunate ones had barred openings that allowed daylight. Some cells had none—perhaps an oil lamp to provide light? The remaining graffiti tells a story left uninterpreted.
