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.

... came upon us quickly as we wandered the streets and lanes of Venice shopping for Milano glass gifts and trinkets for home. Late afternoon we found a roof top garden and bar which overlooked the Grand Canal where we enjoyed a wine or two as the sun set on the city of Venice, another perfect day was had as we found a local restrauant to enjoy a beautiful pasta meal before heading home for the night as we head to Rome ...
... cup of coffee Lorenzo per favore whilst we talked with an American couple(Terry and Chris) from Minnesota. We then set off and you must know that Venice is a region of 120 or so Islands connected by 424 bridges and today, as we followed Wendy's lead, it felt as if we'd crossed most of them. St Marc's basilica was stunning carrying more gold mosaics than any other church. old saints relics were on show and we were able to climb up to and onto the ...
... early on just to take what ever street I fancied and then try to get my bearings when I stumbled across something that looked like a landmark. I actually managed to stumble across 6 of the top 10 sights but missed the Bridge of Sighs. How you may ask - very easy I reply. The writing on the map was too small, I didn't have my glasses, the map was plastic and shining in the sun, it's actually hidden down a side street! Anyway I need something ...
theres not really to much to see its just overrun by tourists so we fitted in quite well ha. just had tea at the camping ground and had an early night. the next day we went in and jumped on a ferry as we both were really missing the ocean and it was about 40 degrees to lido and found a spot on the beach and just chillaxed for the day but it was too hot on the sand we we packed up around 2 and ...

I awoke early and decided to take a morning walk around the city. Venice is best in the morning before all the tourists get going. The city is fun to watch wake up. Barges full of supplies are all coming into the canals and being unloaded and carted away on funky little pull carts that are designed to go up and down stairs easily. The markets and stalls are all being set up in the ...
