Right on a canal

Friendly staff. They put us in a top floor room with a very steep set of stairs but it was quiet. No bell hop to carry bags. Gelato right across the small canal and restaurant nearby. Very Venice. Would stay there again.

Money-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

We were going on a cruise ship so we packed a bag of items we would not need in Venice and left it at the Bagaglia Deposito next to the People Mover at Piazzalia Roma. We then walked with our small bags to the hotel. You are going to do a lot of walking in Venice so the half mile to the hotel is no big deal provided you don't have too much baggage.

Basilea-Venice

The hotel had a great location in relation to the train station. As a matter of fact, when you are leaving the train station and heading towards the bridge, if you look down, you will see on the floor, a tiled sign with the hotel's name and an arrow directing you to turn towards the bridge. We wanted a hotel close to the train station so we didnt have to lug our luggage all over. The front office person was very nice and offered us a city map without us having to ask for one. He also offered us a discounted taxi ride to one of the Murano glass factories for 5 euros each and coffee and tea (since we didn't have time to wait for the full breakfast). The only complaint that I have is that the towels were not that white and my towel on the first day was almost torn in half.

quaint venice visit

We stayed at the Basilea for a couple of days prior to a cruise. The hotel is close to a quiet canal a short 3 block walking distance from the grand canal. It is an old palazzo converted to hotel. The staff is friendly and has good advice. Breakfast is warm and plentiful. There is no lift (elevator) if you get an upper floor. The room was comfortable to rest in. The bathroom required some repair in tiles and bathtub. The room included a small 13 inch TV. Just across the hotel's canal is a small but delicious place with locally made pizza and gelato. It is about 20 minutes walk to Piazzale Roma (where buses and taxis arrive) and 15 min to the train station (Venice Santa Lucia ferrovia) carrying regular rolling luggage (faster with carry ons). If you arrive from Marco Polo Airport the Alilaguna water bus orange line can leave you at Guglie station and it takes about 15 min to walk to the hotel. Just ask directions to cross the Gli Scalzi bridge. There is Internet access at the lobby at reasonable prices (about 4.5 euro for 30 minutes). The hotel doesn't offer lunch or dining service but there is plenty to choose from nearby.

Good deal

If you do the Rome, Florence, Venice vacation, by the time you get to Venice, you are tired of being surrounded by tourists. This hotel is on a quiet street away from the main tourist spots. It was easy to find and close to the train station and bus terminal. Not fancy, but clean and the staff was friendly

Worth the price

Old building (well.. it's Venice!) but in decent condition and it has air conditioner which is a nice surprise. Good location--quiet neighborhood, yet still close to train station (about 5 minutes walk) and easy to find. You don't want to get lost trying to find the hotel while still carrying your luggage (you will have plenty of opportunities to get lost.. believe me!). You can even walk to St Mark square (about 30 minutes walk) or take waterbus in front of train station through Grand Canal which is pretty convenient. Our rate didn't include breakfast so we can't comment on it. There are a number of restaurants and cafe around so not having breakfast included is no big deal. Overall, it's a nice stay in Venice.
