Reading starflyergold's review of  Hotel Papadopoli Venezia MGallery by Sofitel reminded me that I didn't write about Mgallery LaGare Hotel Venezia

Location

Mgallery LaGare Hotel Venezia isn't on the main Venice island  but on the smaller more peaceful location of Murano. I actually enjoyed this retreat from the tourist hustle and bustle and with a water bus stop right on the doorstep and the option of a free shuttle on the hotel speedboat, getting around wasn't a problem.

LaGare Hotel Venice offers an exclusive free transfer service from and to the Venice Airport.

We went twice to Venice and LaGare Hotel Venezia. Both time, I mailed the hotel few days before arriving to book transfer service from  the Venice Airport (and ask for an upgrade).

The pier is a ten minute walk from the airport, the we had to wait for the speed boat. For our fist stay, we were the only two to take the transfer speed boat and it wes really an exclusive service.

Check In

Check in was swift but a bit slow, because we wanted to book sppedboat transfer to Venice main island for the three days we were staying there.

Nothing was said at check-in about the upgrade, and drinks voucher was handed over (for our first stay, drink voucher was only for a glass of Prosseco, for the second one, we enjoyed local Spritz)

Room

We were upgraded to a room on the third floor. I must say I can't tell what kind of room it was, because I could not find this room on the hotel website (but it was not the superior room I booked).

You have to know that Lagare Hotel Venezia is enclosed within the ancient walls of an old furnace, so you don't have any view from your room if you are not on the third floor.chambre1.JPG

Service

We used the speed boat transfer to reach Venice. The boat drops you at Fondamente Nove which is 20 minutes walk to piazza San Marco.

The crossing back to Murano at night was a great experience.

Dining

Breakfast was included in the rate. Brekafast choices were more than enough and you could order differents italian coffee (expresso is definitely not americano !)

We also had dinner which was great but a bit overpriced. There are only few other restaurants and bars in Murano and they tend to close early (but Osteria Al Duomo just accross the bridge is great).

Overall

We had excellent stays at Lagare hotel Venezia. This hotel is quite cheap for Venice (half the price of Hotel Papadopoli which is on main island). The must of this hotel is the free speed boat service you benefit from as the hotel is not in central Venice.
