Great Hotel! Great Room!

Firtst time in Venice. Hotel is across the canal from the train station which is very handy. The room was large by European standards, and very nicely decorated. Helpful staff; and the hotel was re-done 5 years ago; so everything is in great condition.

If you have to pick one restaurant to eat at in Venice, do not miss Osteria da Fiore. It is out of this world. The Black Squid with Ink is spectacular.

Just right

Spent 3 nights at this hotel and found it comfortable and the staff very welcoming. Great breakfast included. Perfect spot for picking up the water bus. Don't be put off by the fact that the train station is opposite on the other side of the canal, we were canal facing and didn't hear a single train.

Buy a 48/72 hr ticket for use on the water buses. Allows you to explore and make the most of your stay.

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.

good choice

It is a very nice hotel with excellent location sitting by the Grand Canal. It is easy to come and go by the train just across the canal. The boat taxi is within short walk across the bridge. We were there for a couple of nights and the room size is OK with us as we were in a triple room. Breakfast is good. Free Wi-Fi is available in the bar area. However, it is bit too expensive.
