Good Location

Would recommend Mon, Jul 28, 2014
Stayed for three nights. Room was a little small but for a short stay adequate, clean and an excellent view of the lagoona. 10 - 15min walk to San Marco square. As you spend very little time in the hotel the stay for us was very good value( for Venice). Breakfast was OK, standard continental. Staff were very helpful. Would stay here again but would need a larger room if staying longer.

Time saver

if only there for short period I would definitely consider a guided walk.

First time in Venice

Would recommend Sun, Sep 11, 2011
Venice was the last stop on a trip to France and Italy with my teenage daughters. The room was nicely appointed but a bit tight. Having our own private rooftop terrace made up for lack of space, but we didn't have a view. The staff was very helpful and accommodating, breakfast (included) was adequate but nothing to rave about. The location was questionable - it was almost the last stop on the #1 ferry - close to the park housing the Venice Binnaele but a long walk from the center Venice. A good hotel if you are looking for a quiet time away from the action.

Entertainment hint

If going for a gondola ride, shop around. They all charge the same (80 euro's for 35 min) but they are not all the same! Some guys have learned different languages and will give a better tour.Our gondolier's name was Marco, and he spoke 5 languages fluently. He comes from a long line of gondoliers and knew everyone as we traveled along. Marco gave us a great tour and pointed out architectural elements, history, etc. He was very charming and it was quite possible that his claim to be related to Cassanova really was true!

Wonderful Stay in Venice

Would recommend Tue, May 17, 2011
This is a great little hotel. The location is very convenient - we saved a bundle by taking the water bus from the airport instead of a water taxi, and then it was just an easy walk from the Arsenale stop to the hotel. It was also nice that the hotel is located in a quieter part of Venice; it's outside the crazy hustle and bustle of San Marco, but still totally close enough to easily walk to all the main sites. Our room was an economy room on the first floor, so it was a little noisy in the morning because it was right next to the breakfast area, but no big deal since we wanted to be out and about early anyway. If you're a light sleeper, I'd suggest booking a room on one of the upper floors. The breakfast was fine, nothing fancy, but it was more than enough to fill our bellies and get on with our day. The staff at the hotel were wonderful - super friendly and very helpful. All in all, we loved this hotel and hope we'll get to visit Venice again some day!

Very well situated for the centre of Venice but quiet and with a great view of the water in front of the hotel.Excellent clean and tidy compact rooms.Friendly and very helpful staff.I would most definately use this hotel again.

Money saver

Restaurants can be expensive,the average price for an ordinary meal for 2 is 50 euro's,clothes shops very expensive buy from the many street traders they offer good quality gifts much cheaper than shops.Supermarkets are similarly priced to U.K.
