... left anywhere. We laid in the sun until lunchtime and then a bit more after lunch. The sun was hot but the breeze was cool. We got a little pinkish so we decided that was enough sun for today. We chilled in our room until it was Bingo time! Over the last week we had come to realise that this cruise was in fact two cruises. The first was ending today which meant the big bingo raffle was dawn today. Every ...

... Since the cost of Internet service aboard ship is always ridiculous, I'm composing off-line, and then copying/pasting when I get signed on. Unfortunately a line feed somehow gets added to every line when I paste, so I have to go back and take them out after I paste, My tech support guy (Don) has pointed out that I need to proof read more carefully, since some words got run together as a result!

... When we arrived back into square about 45 min later there was a lot more water! Free time for 2.5 hours! Found a resteraunt and had first Italian pizza with tomato base, mozzarella, basil, capers and black olives. Bellisima. When we got out of resteraunt the sun had dissapeared and it had started to rain again! Went back out to st Marcos square and now the whole square was covered in water. There was one part that wasn't as deep as ...
... works to round out her collection and/or do some art dealer a favor (can't remember which). To me this immediately makes Ms. Guggenheim's taste a bit questionable, as Dali is one of both Steph and my favorites, but the rest of her collection was pretty good so maybe we'll let this transgression slide. We ended up buying two posters of some of the art: I bought Metzinger's Au Velodrome and Steph ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Flora Venice
Loved waking to the birds
The Hotel Flora was wonderful. My husband and I were celebrating 32 years of marriage. I would love to return there someday but because of a new discovery of consistant infidelity on my husbands part after 32 years, I will be returning with someone else I'm sure.
We loved it
We recently had a memorable stay at the Hotel Flora. We felt very welcome - all the staff were great and looked after us beautifully. We cannot recommend this hotel too highly and cant wait to visit again.
Thank you hotel flora. The Hansfords
An oasis amongst the bustle of Venice
We have stayed at the Flora twice. The first time by accident, the second on purpose and with no regrets! Steps to St. Mark's square and the Grand Canal. Pretty, quiet, secluded interior courtyard. Small (insuite bath) rooms but then so is the price. Strong 3 star, excellent condition and very clean with a wonderfully courtious, friendly and helpful staff.
Beware of the Hotel Flora: crawlling bugs, boarded up windows in smaller rooms
A most disappointing stay at the Flora Hotel. The original room we were given was a dark box, with the window boarded up. The bathroom included a shower that was a wall nozzle and a hole in the floor. The water went everywhere and seemed to invite ALL the bugs in the walls. We suffered from a parade of bugs all night. The bed was extremely uncomfortable.
They did change our room the next day, but the air-condtioning did not work in the new room. They only gave us a minimal discount and the business manager was rude when we recounted our difficulties. We would never return to the Hotel Flora under any circumstances and advise future visitors never to stay there as well.
Hotel Flora is an oasis
We spent 3 days in Venice in mid-June 2003 during one of the hottest most humid spells the've had. We stayed at Hotel Flora, which is an oasis in the midst of the teeming tourist crowds. A charming hotel staffed by super friendly classy people. The room we had on the first floor overlooking the fabulous private garden was so comfortable and cool, we hated to leave! We spent late several evenings in the garden playing Scrabble and enjoying the quiet. Great breakfast in the garden.
It was a highlight of our trip and I can't recommend it enough.
Many trips to the Flora
We are planning a trip to Italy this summer, 2003, or next year in 2004. We have stayed at the Hotel Flora four times in the past, but have not been there for over fifteen years. It was always a great value, great location, and pleasant surroundings. It is great to see that it still remains a true find. The Romanelli family could not have been more gracious in honoring any request we had. We'll be back.
Stayed at Hotel Flora March 8-10, 2003. Small room with definite charm on the first floor unfortunately overlooking the front door and, therefore, about six feet from scaffolding and workmen renovating an adjacent property (starting at 7am on Monday morning). I suggest visitors specifically request a room overlooking the courtyard if possible, which is quite pretty and tranquil. Despite the poor room location, the hotel is very well situated in Central Venice and offers all the facilities most visitors would require. We would definitely recommend it to visitors.
A nice, classic hotel
We stayed at the Flora for two days in February, 2003. It is a small, classic Venician hotel with a lot of charm. The location is excellent, near San Marcos in the shopping district. Our room was a little small but still quite nice. We paid 160 Euros per night during the wintertime. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. We were very impressed with the beautiful breakfast room where a tuxedoed waiter served us each morning (included in rate). This is a very nice hotel and provides a good deal of value.
Greta Hotel, Great Location
very nice hotel with a wonderful breakfast area outside. 2 blocks from San Marco, but quiet considering its location. helpful staff great price.
Stayed at the Flora, have to say it location is wonderful, very peaceful considering how close it is to St Marks Square. The room we stayed in was nice and big. Breakfast area small, but pleasent. Nice outside area to eat if the weather is good.
A reasonable price hotel which offers quality
