Very good location near Piazza do Roma and Railway station. Close to Grand Canal and many restaurants.
Very good young man on reception who was very helpful and had good English. And who seemed to be there 24/7. When does he sleep?
Room clean and quiet. Good air conditioning. We booked the hotel so got a good rate for Venice.
I rate this hotel 4 Star for location.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Florida Venice
Besides location, it's just really not that great
This hotel is pretty centrally located. It's near a taxi (boat) stand, and the train station, and it's at the crossroad of all the shopping streets. But to access it, you'll have to walk down a pretty dingy stinky alley (if you've been in Italy long enough though, you'll be used to this). The room itself is fairly small, but it's bearable.
Unfortunately however, it's state of cleanliness leaves much to be desired. There was icky dirt in corners and crevices, and on areas where you would really rather not see any at all, like on your bed, the headboard and the side tables (for example, there was some crusty dried stuff running down one of the tables). There were also blood stains from some previous occupant clearly imprinted on one of the chair cushions. The bathroom was cramped and badly-lit. For breakfast, expect only baked stuff like croissants and old rolls. There isn't yogurt or cereal like at many other Italian hotels. And o, be sure to check where your room is located. Get it above, or too near, their restaurant, and you can expect yelling, fighting and other forms of noise and rowdiness through the night till the early hours of morning.
Great location, but hotel is so-so
WE reserved a quad room with bath, but they gave us 2 doubles, one without bath. Bed sagged in middle and pillows were rock hard. However, location can't be beat. Just steps from Grand Canal, Vaporetta stop, and Train Station. Don't walk from Piazzale Roma with bags - many bridges to cross.
I consider the Florida to be excellent value for money, pleasantly situated close to all the access routes. The service I have always found to be courteous and efficient, and have always enjoyed my visits. In Venice I feel it represents excellent value for money. This hotel served our needs quite well. It was very near the train station and very convienient for canal travelling. I would reccomend it to any one who is not looking for 4 star accomodations. Great basic lodging!
Had booked a double room via their Web site on internet and got confirmation by email.
On arrival at nearly midnight, we were told that our room had been sold so we couldn't stay there.
As you can imagine we were totally baffled by the news and angry. As we didn't know Venice at all we asked if they could at least somewhere else to stay. The receptionist was very off-hand and rude and unhelpful.
Eventually we walked out and found a hotel just around the corner and luckily they had a last room available for us so we stayed there for 4 nights and had a lovely time. The hotel name is Universo Nord and we recommend it. It is a 3-star and in the same price range as the Florida that is only a 2-star.

... have been like before it became a hit. The locals are still out and about and stop to talk to you. The weather turned on us and it started to rain so we took shelter in a tiny local bar where a handful of old Italian men were playing cards. After a couple of vinos the rain cleared and we were treated to the most beautiful sunset over Venice. A perfect day.
After a day of rest around the camping ground and beach we headed back ...
... Moroccan shirt wearing guy told Silvia that the place was full. He rang some other places that also turned out to be full. The man was very friendly an walked us half and hour to a place that was also full the man knew we were only staying one night so he let us stay in the attic €30 a head and we had beds made up for us with an awesome view of the city. The guy waited for us and took us to a pizza place were all the pizzas were €2 ...
... restaurant called Ribot. Concerns about ‘rip-off’ Venice are allayed by the bill for a lovely two-course dinner with a bottle of Montepulciano coming in at just over £50. After dinner we wandered round for a bit to soak up the atmosphere but it’s been a very long day so retired to bed to prepare for a full days sightseeing.
Up and ready the next morning at 9am. This is the only place where we’ve booked a tour in advance; a two-hour ...
... two beds in a spacious room) was the same price and I must have looked a ‘tad’ disappointed when I found my room and opened the door to reveal the 'very small' content.
Not to worry I thought... until the first plane took off from the runway not 50 metres from my room! GEEZ!! That was loud, so loud in fact that you couldn’t continue a conversation, hear any one talking or sleep which can be a trifle annoying. The planes began ...

There are only a few bow makers in Cremona, and the name that is best known is Lucchi. Mr Lucchi gave Eliza 5 bows to test and she chose one that she is thrilled with. He trusted her to take it out to two violin makers so she could test it with their instruments. The Lucchi bow web site boasts === and === amongst the players of the Lucchi bows. Mr Lucchi was proud to point out that the triennial violin makers competition ...
