Hotel Venezia in Legazpi City is a short drive away from Legazpi City Airport and to a certain extent can be called in close proximity to the breathtaking Mayon Volcano, yet it is nestled in a relatively secluded area as it is situated within the premises of an exclusive and upscale subdivision. This three-star, 40-room boutique hotel offers a relaxing place to be in for businessmen and tourists alike.
Upon arrival at Hotel Venezia, I was immediately offered glass of ice-cold drink, which I might or might not have chugged down like a seasoned sailor. 🙂 Throughout my two-day stay at Hotel Venezia, the staff – from the receptionists to the guards – has been very kind and accommodating. I must have called the front desk almost ten times, mostly because I was being OC (I am pretty chill 90% of the time).
The breakfast buffet I partook in, which was served in Caffe San Marco, had a decent selection of dishes and most of what I tasted was flavorful and downright sinful. I think I ate at least three plates of food for two consecutive mornings. Although I was to tempted to try a slice of Venezian cake, I had a modicum of discipline not to give in to my craving and had their chocolate crinkles. It was a letdown, my disappointed belly gave me a side eye and uttered, “I told you so” in growls.
The rooms I was in, one I occupied for only a couple of hours, were Junior Suite and Standard Room.

Pili nuts in different flavors, products of Albay, are available for sale. The prices, at P170.00 (US $3.32) per pack, are almost twice the listed price at Albay Pili Candy Store (I will write about this on a different entry).
Stairs leading to the second floor of the main building. I know that I took this photo from the top of the stairs on the second floor.

I liked the minimalist approach.
Veranda with the view of the street and the property across the hotel. It was a little too humid to stay outdoors, especially for me who sweats like a pig.
