We made a terrible mistake. The relais and chateau hotel we were meant to stay in was booked so we listened to the concierges recommendation. thus, La Fenice.
The first room we were in had drilling front he street so loud we couldn't stand it and walls were shaking. They moved us to another room that had a closet..yup! First one didn't. The hotel was so strangely located that we were lost every day and also at night worse as we were a bit afraid walking the dark streets. Friends had asked us where we were staying in Venice and I thought that was annoying. Now I know why! You need to stay in a good hotel in Venice! Everything is terribly expensive in the city to begin with but so happy to have finally visited the city! We even had to pay for a small bottle of water. We left after two nights and went to Florence and stayed at a fabulous relais and chateau hotel that was less than the dump in Venice(hotel in Florence called Relais Santa Croce). I was miserable in the hotel and wouldn't walk on floors without shoes......my advise is to save up and go somewhere else!
