ABOVE: The lobby and concierge desk of the Hotel Amadeus.
Location: Close to the
Railroad Station, on the main pedestrian route to Rialto and the
Piazza San Marco.
You're arriving or departing by train, you don't want to walk a long way
with luggage, and you require first-class comforts.
The Amadeus is a long-established hotel with 63 rooms, a bar, a Japanese
restaurant, a tree-shaded garden, and other four-star services (such as
room service, laundry, and a business center). Wi-Fi is available, but
you'll have to pay for it.
Note: Thanks to
the new Calatrava Bridge,
the Amadeus is also convenient if you're arriving or departing by
ship at the
cruise basin. (From the hotel, just walk past the railroad station,
over the gently-curved bridge, and into the
Piazzale Roma. There, you
can hire a land taxi,
catch a free shuttle bus to your ship is one is available, or take
the People Mover
to the Marittima piers.)
In the first image, you can see the Piazzale Roma
(airport buses, land taxis, and People Mover) on the left, the
railroad station just above, and the Rio Terà
Lista di Spagna leading off toward the right of the picture. The
Hotel Amadeus is slightly left of the grey triangle in the upper
middle section of the photo.
In the second picture, the Hotel Amadeus is the
yellow building on the north side of the Rio Terà
Lista di Spagna, a few doors before the triangular campo
and church of San Geremia.
