TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Florida Venice
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.

... the ferry, validated them and avoided a 52 euro fine, unlike the people in front of us. Found our hotel near the San Zacharreia stop and used a map to get to the supermarket. Got lost going back. Went out to find dinner and look at the shops and got caught in a thunder storm. The day had been mostly overcast so we had no idea it was ...
... the crowds, and I mean crowds....I've never seen so many different people from all over the world walking up and down, windy twisting street. It's hard to get lost all the main attractions and squares are sign posted,and all well marked on the city map...for us the grand canal is a real landmark feature ( or should that be water mark feature)
Breakfast is late I can hear the bells chime 7.30am.
We headed out after breakfast to beat the crowds to St Marco Square...the ...
... and you see a dog eating a bagel (??), an old lady selling eggs, a mother handling a squirming baby and your eye follows up the stairs to a priest in a jewelled robe. In a pale blue dress that sets her apart from all the other coloured robes and dwarfed by the large staircase and columns, is the tiny figure of the child Mary. Venetians love this painting and call it "Little Mary". So this museum goes from Medieval Art (14th century) to Early Renaissance (1450-1500) ...
... a bunch of Italians, but no other tourists! As I was on the little jetty taking a few pictures I heard one of the gondoliers telling his passengers that the area we were sitting in was part of a scene from one of the James Bond movies. This is unverified but sounds pretty cool! Haha After out drink, it was back to the hostel to pack as we would have to be up early for our flight to Napoli in the ...
... The canals are sheltered from
the wind by all of the huge buildings so we were warm-ish and we really enjoyed
it. We saw some builders, who were getting their tools and wood etc out of
their boat into the building they were working on. Stuff that for a job! It
looked so awkward!
After our lovely cruise we went to the Murano glass blowing demonstration and store, I've seen ...
