Everything was OK. The room was clean, the breakfast was good, the personnel helped us with indications. And the price is accesible compared to the prices in Venica

... We found a great place for dinner, I had pasta with shrimp and zucchini with garlic and oil. The food has been good every time we have eaten so far, so can't complain. After dinner we got lost trying to find our way back to the bus station and we're running in a time crunch because the busses stopped after 11:30 and we were cutting it close. It took us over an hour to find it and get to the bus. We finally got back around 12:00. That was the last night in Venice and last place ...
