Awful room

It was ok. Excep the room was full of fluff and the bed linen wasnt changed and the room wasnt any bigger than a child's bedroom at home. Food was ok but a bit limited menu. Service was good and the location is quiet and with easy access to waterbus and centre of the city.

Above average isolated hotel in the area

The hotel is nice on an isolated region in Venice which is away from tourist traps. On a bad note, that the hotel is isolated and there isn't much of a selection around the area. Secondly, the staff doesn't make useful suggestions on where to eat or visit around the area.

Hotel for Carnevale

The hotel was nice but very expensive for Carnevale. We arrived late and there were no restaurants close by and no food at the hotel. It was a 20-30 minute walk to Piazza San Marco.

Comfortable but distance to the centre is a drawback

This hotel doesn't look quite so smart "in the flesh" as it does on the pictures but everything is clean and comfortable, breakfast is excellent with a big choice and the staff are friendly and generally helpful. The big disadvantage is the location, which is quite pleasant and quiet but the additional long walk is very unwelcome after what is typically a very tiring day in a crowded city. Worth getting an ACTV pass just for the "commute" as the Sant'Elena stop is very close by.

great location

nice quiet location, very easy to get to by water taxi from airport, a pleasant 20min stroll and you're at san marco square, or hop on the water taxis a 5 min walk from the hotel, and it's before they get to the busy stops so you can get a good position for views of the grand canal. hotel breakfast included was great hot & cold buffet, cereals and giant bowl of fruit that kept getting re-filled (especially enjoyed the fresh pastries and cakes), and the food choices accomodates for adults and children. only 2 problems - all the lights go on in the bedroom when you open the door - which isnt very practical if one person / child has gone to bed before the others. would have been convienant to have a toliet on the same floor as the restaurant / bar - but wouldn't stop me from visting again tho. the local Spritz aperitif drink v nice & aim to eat gelato every day of your trip :O)

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

bus is cheap, but goes to one end of town. recommend the water taxi from the airport if you are staying anywhere near san marco or east of there - check which stop you need, and which lines run to it. buy a 24 / 48 / 72 hour pass for the water buses - gets you everywhere around venice - can't use for the water taxi from the airport tho changing at Lido from water taxi to the water bus lines is very easy - red (rossa) line less frequent but gets there much quicker than the blue, also doesn't stop at as stops on the way. if there is a group 5-8 you can get a speedboat from airport to desitination stop for c.€100 total - much quicker that the water taxi if you have the extra bit of cash to spare. Don't miss out on a visit to Burano (via Murano - glass blowing island als a must see) beautiful coloured buildings to wander round - included in the water buspasses

Quiet neighborhood, walkable to tourist areas

We only stayed for one night, but the staff we very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were clean, comfortable and the bathrooms were large relative to many other hotels. The restaurant was average, good breakfast included. This is in a quieter more residential area, but still within comfortable walking distance to popular tourist areas.

Great Place to Stay

The rooms were great, clean, well appointed. THe location was away from the noise with a garden to sit and relax in. Most of the staff was very helpful They could use a concierge to provide visiter information and assistance. Breakfast was very nice THe price was very good, Would definitely stay here again.
