ideal spot

Stayed with my daughter. Ideal location to start exploring from. 2 min walk from bus and train station, and just across the Grand Canal to the Vaporetti stop. The hotel was very good in every way, the only let down was soundproofing in the rooms. Would stay again.

perfect location

Couldnt have picked a better hotel for location,friendliness, cleanliness & great value also had a roof top terrace bar - breakfast was superb & served up till 10.30 each morning - only downside was the hairdryer in bathroom - not user friendly at all - pack yr own travel hairdryer, but couldnt fault anything else - will definitely return to this hotel.

Elegant 4* hotel, great location

Elegant 4* hotel, right on the Grand Canal, opposite the train station. Highly recommended if you can find a good deal.

Terrific Hotel

This is a beautiful hotel right on the Grand Canal and close to the Piazza Roma where the buses to the airports arrive and depart. The rooms are comfortable although the mattresses were not as comfortable as some were on our trip. Our room rate included breakfast which is always a plus. The staff were pleasant and very helpful and always professional. I would absolutely stay here again if I have the opportunity to tour Venice again in the future.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The hotel is close to the Piazza Roma where we could purchase boat bus passes, as well as arrange skip the line tours, hop on the boat bus, and arrange transportation to the airport. There were a lot of little restaurants down the side streets that were less expensive than on the Canal.

Good Venice Spot

Hotel is very nice and nicely decorated. It is quiet and peaceful. Breakfast is good. Its location is good, on the grand canal but it is not fabulous. Overall, it was a good experience.

Wonderful get away

The hotel is keenly located in front of the Santa Lucia Train Station on the Grand canal. Its staff was very professional meeting all of our requests with kind service and showed concern for our satisfaction while staying at the Hotel. The rooms were spacious and clean. We would readily stay at this location in the future because you can easily reach all key destinations in Venice.

A great value

The hotel is in a quiet area, but if you do not mind walking or taking the water services it is a perfect location! The hotel breakfast was a great way to start every morning. And the staff was always very helpful and spoke fluent English.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

Be sure to ask at the front desk for the "promotional" FREE water taxi ride to Burano. Although they leave you at only one glass blowing facility, you can easily exit the gates and explore the island, then return back to the facility for the free ride back to Venice.
