Me and my partner stopped here for 2 nights on our first ever trip to Venice. We were not disappointed. This hotel has helpful staff who make check in and check out as simple as possible. Upon arrival we were greeted by a polite lady who spoke very good English. She gave us a selection of maps for the city and advised of good sights near by. After we were checked in we were given our room key and a porter took our luggage to the room for us and showed us how to work the air con. The only complaint would be that the facilities need a bit of love. The showers hose was bust so we had to take baths and the main light for the room had a mind of its own at times. But large windows and a very spacious room with a table and chairs were welcome adornments. Breakfast was served from 7:30am to 10:30am with a selection of meats and cheeses, fruit, breads, croissants, yogurts and a modern self serve coffee machine. I enjoyed the many variations of croissants available. In regards to location, this hotel is far away from the hustle and bustle of the usual tourist attractions. This adds to its charm, as the streets nearby are adorned with cafes, restaurants and a lively square just 5 minutes away which boasts a selection of the above along with a supermarket. There is also 2 restaurants the hotel can book you in for to receive a free drinks. We were presently surprised by both! Whilst this isn’t a stones throw from the main attractions of Venice, with the help of google/Apple maps, it’s only a 20 minute walk to St Marcs square with plenty of sights to see on the way. All in all, the price of this hotel was more than reasonable. And whilst the facilities mentioned above were a bit of a failure, it did not take away from the experience! Collapse

We chose this hotel after looking for something small and simple. The hotel is lovely and the staff where freindly and happy to provide recommendations of where to eat. We had paid for a superior room with a garden view and was placed on the first floor. The room was rather small and have to say we found the mattress to be a little bit too hard for our liking. The bed was king size too, the room was warm and the air-con seemed to struggle with the heat. Shower was tiny and while neither my wife and i are big people it was a struggle at times to manuvere around inside the shower. If you dont mind these lilttle things then nice hotel placed 10 mins from the Piazza Roma, 20 minute walk from San Marco Square and 20 minute walk from water bus stop for direct access to the airport.

I stayed here with my partner for three nights in March 2018. LOCATION The location of this hotel is very good. There are lots of little restaurants and shops on the same street if you need anything. It only takes around 15 minutes to walk to the Rialto Bridge and around 20-25 minutes to St Marks Square. There are also water bus links and water taxis if needed. The hotel is also only a 5-10 minute walk away from the bus station which has regular connections to the air ports. HOTEL The hotel itself is very neat and tidy. All the staff were very accommodating and friendly. Our room was quite small but had everything we needed. The hairdryer provided was quite old fashioned and took a while to dry my hair but that is my only minor complaint. We were also told that no irons are allowed in the hotel so we did without. Soap, shower gel and a shower cap were provided. There was also a mini bar in the room along with a safe which were handy little extras that we had not expected. There was also a small TV in the room that got a few British channels. The bedroom was decorated in a traditional Venetian style. The bed was firm but comfy and there were lots of extra sheets, pillows and towels in the room. HIGH TIDE We were not told by our travel agent that Venice experiences high tides in March. This meant that our hotel got flooded every night at around 11pm. This was not an issue for us as we were always back by this time and by morning all the water had been cleaned up so we were never really effected by this. In St Marks square there were raised footpaths for areas effected by flooding. FOOD The food in the hotel was very pleasant. There was not a huge selection for breakfast but what was there was nice. Breakfast included fruit, yogurts, cereal, bread, cheese, cold meats, croissants, tea, coffee, fruit juices and water. PLACES TO VISIT St Marks Square St Marks Square has lots of restaurants, shops ans museums to keep you entertained. There is a tower there called San Marco Campanile which you can go up and has beautiful views over Venice. I think this cost around €8 each. Rialto Bridge Rialto bridge also has lots of great restaurants and shops in it's surroundings. The views of the grand canal from this bridge are second to none. Boat Trip (Murano, Burano and Torcello) I cannot recommend this boat trip enough. The trip starts at St Marks Square and goes to three islands of the coast of Venice. Firstly you visit Murano and get a chance to visit one of its famous glass factories. Here you get to see a live glass blowing demonstration. Next you visit Torcello which is a small town with cafes and shops. Lastly you visit Burano which is my favourite of the three. Burano is a fishing village where all the houses are painted in different colours. After this final stop you get dropped back off at St Marks Square. The trip lasts around 4 1/2 hours and only costs €20 each. Collapse

This was probably by far our least favorite hotel in Italy. We stayed here for one night. The hotel is very close to the station but little bit far from main attractions in Venice but if you are in italy that shouldnt be a problem because you pretty much walk everywhere. The building is very old but its quaint. The shortcomings of this hotel is the hotel management and staff. Everything is fixable but I guess management don't want to spend money and time on it. For starters WiFi is really bad. For majority of time we couldn't even connect to the WiFi. Even after complaining to the staff they didnt help us at all to fix it. The shower room condition was abysmal. The water pressure in shower was really bad and slow. Third thing which was annoying was that when you arrive at the hotel they suggest you couple of places to eat. One of the places is really good but you need reservations. Hotel staff said that we have to go through them to reserve a table which we did twice but when we reached the place itself the owner said he doesn't have any reservation. Eventually the restaurant owner was nice and let us eat given that we leave in 45 mins. Overall I would not recommend this place for stay. There are far much superior hotels close to city center within same price range. Collapse

Our room had a high ceiling was very clean and in keeping with the historic building - not luxury fittings but what a traditional hotel in Venice should be and slightly quirky. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. There was a good range of choice for breakfast and even the coffee from the machine was very good. The hotel is just 5 minutes from the bus station and just a few more minutes from the vaporetto stops and train station. The hotel is located on a relatively quiet canal and in a good position for discovering Venice on foot. There are a good selection of restaurants in the nearby alleys! Collapse
