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

After a very early start and uneventful plane ride, we have arrived in Venice (Venezia). Checking out of Atlantis was not without its own difficulties...there was a room tax that we had already paid which the hotel was trying to charge us again. All of that was forgotten once we saw the beautiful buildings of Venice through the windows of the water …
... place. Still, it's a beautiful place. I enjoyed wandering up and down the tiny lanes and over the canals, though some of it got a bit repetitive after a little while. I'd signed up for two optional activities today, a walking tour and a gondola ride. The latter was fun. I confess that I wasn't actually sure what a gondola was. Turns out it's a boat, not an alpine mobility pod. Anyway, drifting the canals in good company ...
... on how they make the vases. It was amazing, our guy made a horse on top of his. Mikaela then blew the budget by buying a little vase!!! Shopping shopping and more shopping later, having bought an awesome pretty mask and lunch if course we had to do our island lace making cruise. We got to the dock, got on the boat and headed 45 minutes into the Venician sea making our way to a little cute island were we were shown another demonstration, but ...
... if your life depended on it. We found some dinner near St Mark's square. I had a lovely lobster pasta and Jess enjoyed her meatballs and spaghetti. By this time it was quite late and we met up with the group for the long trip back on foot. Unfortunately we didn't get to spend as much time in Venice as we had hoped and the constant travel was beginning to drain our resolve. We hit the pillows hard and slept well in anticipation for the trip to the ancient capital the next ...
... WWII) Anyhow - there is a lot of history here - far more than we Australians can cope with in one day! And everywhere is soooooo clean (no grafitti) but there are cigarette butts in abundance... it seems that smoking is still a fashion statement here - the health warnings are overshadowed by the Italian image..... immaculately dressed blokes in red shirts, yellow pants and white shoes...with a fag hanging out of their mouths! And ...
