Amazing stay, Amazing location

Had the most incredible experience in Venice and staying at this hotel just made it even better. Friendly and helpful English speaking staff, high speed internet in the room, and fantastic location. Would stay here again no question. When faced with the decision of where to stay in Venice- this is the place to be!

Awesome place for a couple to stay.

Very cute! Great location. Friendly english speaking staff. Good breakfast included. Great restaurant at the bottom of the hotel. Only gripe was that the WiFi was painfully slow. Good value for the money.

Short 2 day visit after hiking in Alps

Venice is very confusing because of the canals and narrow walkways which are oriented in all different directions. I got lost and very frustrated trying to find hotel but once I arrived, it turned out to be a good location to see pretty much the whole city. As in many European cities, there were no elevators so it was up and down 3 flights every time I came or went. No problem for me but could be tough on older people. Room was lovely with glass chandelier and window looking down on canal. Breakfast was great-hot and cold choices, interesting conversations in multiple languages. Personable and very helpful staff.

Great hotel with good breakfast

Hotel has good service and breakfast. The location is also a good point because in the center of Venice. The only difficulty is to find the hotel because is not a easy advertising to indicate the location. But in general for single traveler is one of the best options.

I would recommend!

We enjoyed our stay. The room is small, but comfortable, and nowhere near as small as other places I've stayed! The Venitian decor is mostly trite, but the wallpaper matches that in the Pallazzo de Doge just about perfectly. Breakfast was adequate, the coffee first rate. The location can't be beat. And do eat at the restaurant downstairs--their period 14-16 century food is amazing!

Fantastic location!

This was our first trip to Italy. My sister, daughter and I stayed in a room together on the top floor. It was a little difficult to handle the luggage up three flights of stairs but we managed. We had 3 twin beds. We could look out our window straight down into one of the numerous canals. We watched the tourists in the gondolas. We could see a cute little rooftop garden. The breakfasts were wonderful! It was a very short walk to St. Mark's Square. We had a wonderful time and would stay there again.

Great location.

Location was great as it was 5-10 minutes to the Rialto Bridge or San Marcos square. 5 minutes to the water taxi. Included nightly shows as Gondoliers passed below our window view of a canal. Singing and laughter was great. Would recommend to others. Only downside, was it could get noisy at night with the windows open, but well worth the experience.

Great place hard to find

This was a very nice motel, difficult to find, everything in Venice is difficult to locate, The morning staff was very unfriendly almost to the point of being rude, but the gentlemen on the evening shift were more than helpful and really did make up for the others. The airlines lost our baggage for our entire stay there and the gentlemen on the evening shift went out of there way to help us get them before we left for Cinqua Terra.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Get a good, and I do mean a good map of the streets, otherwise you will spend most of your time lost. Venice is such a great place to get lost in when you want to be lost, otherwise it can be frustrating because every alley is a street and a good map will help.
