Locanda Acquavita in Venice: a Sleepless Hotel

I recently went to Murano and stayed in Venice on the cheap. I booked at Locanda Acquavita because it is quiet and close to the vaporetto stop that takes you to Murano (by the way, watch out because there are two stops at Fondamente Nuove, one before the Murano Loop and one after, so make sure to read the direction you are taking–i.e. 42 or 41, I forget, direzione Murano!). Unfortunately I got 3 and a half hours of sleep before an important meeting so I think that something has to be said for an otherwise fine┬áB&B that is run on cruise control except between 8am and 12pm. Here is my review:

I’m not a light sleeper, I’m even deaf in one ear–something that makes falling asleep much easier in noisy situations–but with a phone locked in a closet outside your room ringing literally all evening, all night, and all morning long, I have to warn you that you might be in for a very miserable and frustrating time.
Also, the bathroom is tiny, there is no shower although there is a shower head. And the mirror on the ceiling made me say: “chicabowuang”.
Without the phone ringing, and with full disclosure about the bathroom this would have been an acceptable stay. I got 3 1/2 hours of sleep, so I am none too pleased.
