I am not a review writer, this is actually my first. To begin I will let you know that I recognizing that this is an area first inhabited in 10,000 BC and I understand that space is at a premium.
Lets start with my wife and I walked by the entrance to the hotel three times. I knew roughly where the hotel was located and had a printed map but even after firing up the cell phone GPS and having the hotel location dot and our current location dot covering one another, it was still not evident of the entrance. So next we look for the address (Hotel Moderno 154) and find 152 and 158. Strike Two!
Then, what's that in the alley between the pizza joint and another hotel but a sign (white sheet of 8-1/2" x 11" paper) in a plastic page protector with the name, Hotel Moderno! We have found it, yes, finally. So I turn sideways and turn my suitcase sideways and head down the alley to an open steel door that has a stairway that looks closer to a stair entrance to a tree fort. At first, I thought it was a circular stairway and was really wondering if I was going to be able to fit my suitcase up the narrow twisted stair. Without the suitcase I travel up the stairs, turn left to go up a few more stairs to a locked glass door with a picture on it showing other buildings and an intercom to the right. Then a voice from the intercom, I must go back down the stairs, out from the alley to the street and then go into a different hotel to check in! Lovely, thinking I was at the wrong location I go to the other hotel, haul the luggage up the stairs to the front desk and check into the building we were at previously, oh my.
So I check in and pay for the two nights (if I want a remote to the TV I must pay a 50.00 Euro deposit, I don't) and head to the previous building, haul the suitcases up the original flight of stairs and then another flight of stairs (there was one more floor, I don't see why the desk attendant didn't give us the penthouse) and enter our room. Ugh. I am ok with small; I am ok with old, dated, or nostalgic. I am not ok with pealing wallpaper and paint, one outlet, unneeded furniture, broken furniture, broken shower doors, a sink that doesn't drain faster than a stream just faster than a drip but does leak, a nail for a door stop, and buckling and broken laminate flooring (we had to wear our shoes while in the room), shower doors that are broken and don't close and grout mold.
Now, at 85.00 American dollars I understand this is a steal in the off season and yes I like to spend less on accommodations and more on food.... But enough sour grapes let's say something nice, I believe it deserves a strong half star any day of the week.

... is the place to buy. Part of our city tour included a boat ride around the city. This is a port city, which gets 55,000 freighters passing through their waters every year. We saw a number of mosques, including the famous Blue Mosque, which we visited. The term Blue refers to the thousands of blue tiles which are used on the inside on the ceilings. I took pictures inside, but they can’t really portray the size and awesomeness of this building.

We woke up after that ordeal expecting to see the Venice canals outside and even inside our tent but alas It was all clear and the fear of us being stranded hear and our plane not leaving due to the storm was quickly quashed.
All in all, we obviously must say that this one stop had been an adventurous one and something we will both never forget. Im sure neither will most of you.
7th of September 2014 guys don’t forget it.
We had a 9:30am train to Venice, so after checking out of our hotel ( and not getting charged for Internet after all...Grrr!), we headed to the "dirty cardboard box " (railway station). This would be our last rail trip in Italy, so we had mixed emotions. We'd enjoyed our time in Florence and the mixture of organised tours and time to explore on our own worked well for us. In some ways I wasn't particularly looking forward to spending time in Venice as my memory of ...
... and cafes along the sides. We walked along looking in the shops, watching the women "tatting" the lace, and reading the menus. We finally selected a place for lunch and since it was still windy we decided to eat inside. We had delicious pasta and beer. By the time we went back outside the wind had died down and the sun was shining brightly. We parted company with Dave and ...
Buona Pasqua! (or Happy Easter to you English speakers). Today was Easter Sunday and, purtroppo (unfortunately), we were homeward bound.
…but not before a final macchiato/cappuccino and some (Colomba di Pasqua) Easter cake. P and I took our final walk to Rosa Salva, in Campo Santi Giovanni e Paolo, but it was closed for ...
