Hotel is in a great location, staff very friendly and so clean but don't have good internet. WIFI doesn't reach rooms. Room very spacious, quiet zone. I think it need a little bit more variety for breakfasts

We throughly enjoyed our 5 nights spent at this hotel for our honeymoon we had a superior room which was extremely spacious and clean! Only one thing we diddnt like was the fact it doesn't have tea and coffee making facilities which is a shame but has a mini bar which is good. Breakfast is continental with cold meats cheese and croissants and a coffee machine with beautiful coffee so make the most of this as in some of the coffee shops in Marco square are around €7 euros for a coffee. The reason I booked this hotel was for how easy accessible from the airport which was a 20min shuttle bus costing €8 and literally a 5 min walk away from where the bus drops you. Also would recommend the quaint little coffee shop next to hotel we absolutely loved it and cappuccino was only €1.50! Bargain Be aware of city tax when you leave the hotel we wasn't aware of this at all!! And for 5 nights cost us€32 euros bit of a shock when your not expecting it. All in all would recommend this hotel and Venice it's self is stunning city Collapse

Spent 3 nights in this lovely canal side hotel in February and found it a lovely base from which to explore Venice. The hotel's position is perfect on a small canal beside a quaint bridge in one of the quieter, but not inaccessible, areas. The room we had (304) was supposed to be a superior double and although small was perfectly comfortable. However, I'm not sure what a standard room would be like! The room was very warm and strangely did not have any heating on other than the towel rail in the bathroom. The bed was plenty warm enough even although it had no duvet, even in February, and we slept with the window open. The canal view was very appealing but do be aware a downside is that there is a regular amount of night time canal activity, such as the unloading of crates of drinks for the bar next door (at 4.30am!), so these rooms might not suit a light sleeper. The breakfast I would describe as adequate, some nice crumbly bread rolls and a range of croissants with some basic meats (two choices- plain ham and a salami style one) and a couple of pre sliced cheese options. There was also cereal, yoghurt, fresh fruit (whole), boiled eggs and a couple of coffee machines that did produce some delicious different coffees. For a 3 star hotel I think this breakfast was fine, if nothing to write home about. The wi fi was free but required a fiddly re logging in every time you left the hotel and came back in, it was also a bit intermittent but I think this an issue in Venice as a whole. The inside of the hotel was lovely: lots of charming rooms that had obviously been acquired at different times. It also had a gorgeous courtyard garden . In February there was no bar and it would have been lovely to have at least had access to the coffee machines in the daytime as there were no coffee and tea facilities in the room. All in all, we found the staff very helpful and the hotel immaculately clean with a unique, old world Venetian appeal. Collapse

We took a water taxi from the airport which dropped us directly outside the hotel - that was cool - the staff are super friendly speaking French, English and Italian (they were the languages I heard) very helpful. The hotel itself is comfortable, very warm and clean enough. The beds are super comfy, the ceilings incredibly high which gives a feeling of luxury. The bathroom is compact and, truth be told, getting out of the shower between the bidet and the loo was a tad snug. The breakfast was plentiful and tasty enough. All in all would recommend. What a lovely weekend in Venice Collapse

This hotel, by the canal, was fabulous. Not ritzy, but great atmosphere, great setting. It is a central point for visiting everything. The person at the reception desk (Lucca) made us feel at home, guided us with many options and pointed us to fabulous restaurants and attractions within Venice. I review one restaurant on TripAdvisor. It's called CRAVATTE and is down the street from the hotel. From here, we were easily able to visit the islands of Murano (fabulous glass products) and Burano (fabulous lace products). Also, close enough to St. Marks Square and other historical points as well as the train station from where we were to visit the beautiful town of Verona (the home of the characters Romeo and Juliet). The central location of this hotel made our stay a real pleasure. Collapse
