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.

Old World Charm right on the Grand Canal

Had a wonderful stay that the hotel. The location was at the far end of the grand Canal, but right across from the Train Station, the Port and a Water Bus Stop. Our room had a window that faced the inner courtyard of the building so the view was of nothing. The room itself was kinda old in style, but everything worked and was clean and did us just fine for a single night stay before getting on a cruise ship. The building had a nice roof top deck with full bar and food service. We had a night cap up there and it was very peaceful.

Convenience and Safety

The location of the hotel is just across the main train station, Venezia Santa Lucia. The bridge is a bit steep and slightly strenuous to lug a luggage across. We didn't want to roll the luggages across the steps and add injury to the already deteriorating ancient and beautiful bridges in Venice. There was no kettle in the room and no air conditioning. But the hotel's location is safe compared to those on the side of the main train station. It was a good choice for a short stay.
