Centrally located

Great location, close to the San Giglio Vaporetto. Very small room (for the price) with a view of the interior courtyard. Bath had a shower head but not attached to wall so difficult to use. Fine service by the front desk and bell staff.

Great location, but (some of) the staff could have been a bit friendlier and more helpful. Great breakfast provided each morning. There again, the staff could have been a bit friendlier. Don't think we would stay there again.

Excellent location

This hotel was very close to San Marco Square and the Accademia, so it made an ideal base to explore the city. It served a delicious, buffet breakfast with a wide choice of options.

Wonderful location and very good price

We enjoy the stay at this hotel for the location, Wi-Fi (2 euros for voluntary charity). Breakfast was OK plus. Hotel offer a free tour to Murano, but we couldn't accept because of all tours already planned. If we go back to Venice I will chose this Hotel again.

Venice for New Year's

We traveled to Venice for New Year's Eve,and found the hotel to be in a perfect location for all that we wanted to do and see. The staff was helpful...they even provided us with rubber boots for the high water! Good breakfast, a comfortable lounge and bar, and easy access to the vaporetto. I would definitely return.
