Ahhhh Venice. So much better than the pictures. No wonder there is so much art here. The colours are amazing. Arrived at our hotel in Venice which is just steps from the Grand Canal, at 5pm. Immediately set off to see this city. So compact and appealing. Canals, tiny alleys and bridges everywhere. Our first stop to grab an ice team. Italian ice …
We got up late because you can in Italy. The hotel breakfast room at its busiest just before closing at 10.30. Good coffee and really delicious croissants. We walked to the Rialto Bridge to see it in the daylight. We had bought a walking map of Venice which you really do need as without one is like walking a giant maze. Also at night it's very dark …
In Venice, we stayed at the Hotel Florida. They don't have shower curtain in their shower room. I told the kids to be very careful in taking a shower otherwise, we will flood the bathroom. This hotel is within walking distance to the train station. We're glad we chose it. We didn't have to climbed up and down the stairs with our luggages. This was …
Well were here now, well rested after 24 hours of straight travel. Cape Town is Reeeeeeaally far from Venice !!! Who' have guessed. When we got to MIlaan, we caught the bus to Milan Central station, managed to negotiate the ticket machine, in spite of helpful locals. The train trip was Faaaaast, wizzing throught the countryside at breakneck speed. …

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.
