Ciao (CHOW) from Venezia (Venice)!
Wow, either Jude and I are becoming self appointed experts or we are learning how to travel!
Our Trenitalia 4 hour trip from Rome to Venice went lovely. We had a new train that had properly functioning air conditioning for a cost of 65 Euros!! We arrived in Venice, another city without cars. We …
... So, we got gelato from the same store and j sat down at the same spot where Karl was sat sulking. He counts that as his most memorable, sentimental moment of the trip : ) All in all we loved venice. So unique, with a great vibe (all be it with a few snobs) and a quirky lifestyle. We had lots of laughs and fun. It was nice to relax in such a lovely place, as fatigue is well and truly setting in! Onto Paris then we are coming home (to sleep for a solid week!) Luv ...
... the fact I was excited to be in Venice. The canals themselves looked really dirty and the houses were falling apart but it only added to the charm of the place. I was photo happy and my Norwegian companion was very patient waiting for me to get my shot. I was obsessed with all the different types of brass door knobs. There were so many different animals and human heads. I tried to capture as many of them as I could find. As it was so hot we spent a lot of time in different ...
Today we worked off our yummy breakfast of tea, coffee and fresh pastries from a little bakery by riding around an island of Venice called Lido. We caught the water bus over there which took about fifteen minutes and hired bikes. Rode all the way up one side of the island to the end and then back down the other side along where the beaches are. We stopped off and had a swim at the 'public' beach, rode some more and ...
... being said, I had another rough afternoon with my leg issue. The pain came back very intensely and rash spread all the way up my leg and now down my feet. My ankles are bruised from the swelling and now blistering from who knows what... I am going to the hospital first thing in the Morning and praying they can fix me ! It is hard to really take in the beauty of these cities while experiencing the pain that I am. It is very disappointing. I ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
We came here not expecting too much as we had read a couple of bad reviews on trip advisor - we really looked for best priced availability close to the action... We arrived and the staff were really helpful getting our bags up some flights of stairs to the rooms. They even offered to get up at at 3.30am for our flight out to get us breakfast of which we politely declined eventually agreeing to have them pack us a brekky for the kids. Overall a cute hotel close to the action. We liked it.

Thumbs up Hotel Lux
We stayed in this Hotel in May 2004 and found it very good. As the reviews on tripadvisor were good we decided to opt with it - this was our second trip to Venice so we wanted to be near St Mark's Square. Hotel Lux is just 2 streets away (in Venice this is nothing) and you can get all of the main waterbuses at the nearest stop (San Zaccaria) which is maybe 100-200 metres away. We were lucky to stay in room 403 - worth the climb up the stairs as the room had a small roof terrace adjoining(with view of St Marks). The room was nicely decorated, very clean, had excellent airconditioning, with a TV and minibar. Breakfast is basic continental but very nice. Staff were very friendly and spoke very good English. Only downside was that there wasn't any elevator.
This place is wonderfully located. How you get off the Taxi 51 at San Zacaria and it is about 100 steps ahead. That is a great convenience (if you have luggage) as there are no taxis in Venice.
We found Lux Hotel simply great. It's a small but charm hotel located just two blocks away from St. Marks's Square. Even when it has no lift the hotel is so nice, clean and the staff is so kind. They assigned us to room N? 501, it was located at the attic of the main building of the hotel (there is also Casa Lux, an annex of the hotel, located ten meters away). Our room was tiny with our own escalator and the decoration makes the room look like a boat with carpeted floors, white-clean linen and computer controlled heat (from the reception). Nice bathroom with shower and tile floor. We did not have a great sight of the city from the room, but the bells from the St. Mark's Tower nicely wake us up every morning. We recommend this hotel and will surely go back when we get the chance to go to Venice again.
The hotel has a great location - only a couple of minutes from St Mark's Square.
The room was large and comfortable with a view onto a small courtyard.
The only complaint we have is regarding the breakfast. This was actually in another building (not Hotel Lux) and was very cramped and always busy. The breakfast itself was very basic consisiting of just bread rolls and croissants.
We would still recommend this hotel for the price and location, just don't expect a hearty breakfast !!
Couldnt have asked for a nicer place to stay
We stayed here in July 03, we could not get over how centrally located it was for the price we paid, its the perfect location and a lovely hotel with st. mark's square almost at its door step! Couldnt have asked for a nicer place to stay! Its stunning!
When the hotel told me that they were close to St.Mark's Square, I was sceptical as the price seemed pretty reasonable. In actual fact, the location couldn't have been better. The room I was given was also very pleasantly decorated. Not much to view out the window though, but no complaints there as time spent in Venice would mostly be outdoors, and not in the hotel room. The staff are truly pleasant, from the front desk lady, Margharita, to the night shift desk guy, Houssain. All in all it was a good stay, although you should be prepared to walk as there are no lifts in the hotel. Still, I say 2 thumbs up for this place!
I booked the Lux online and was really nervous about it. The location was absolutely fantastic, right by the Ducal palace and the bridge of sighs. There were recent renovations, and the room was beautiful if a bit small. The airconditioning was first rate. There was no elevator so this may be an issue if you have any difficulty with stairs. The staff is happy to help with luggage. Such a pleasant suprise at a reasonable price.
