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.

Great service, Small Rooms

The hotel was pretty nice, I don't know that it deserves it's 4 star rating. The only thing the hotel really had going for it was a clerk who spoke really good English, exchanged money and had breakfast. The rooms where very small the bed took up most of it so it was hard to unpack. The beds where split in the middle which is common in the country but I hate it!

Beautiful Location

We spend two days travelling Venice and this hotel has a perfect location for people travelling with and without a vehicle. It's right across the canal from the main train station and is within a 5 minute walk to the major parking garages on the "mainland". It is on the other side of Venice regarding the typical "must see items" in the city but part of the fun of Venice is walking through the city streets or riding the water bus. It will take you about 20-25 minutes to either ride the water bus or walk through the city to get to San Marco square. The hotel room was small as to be expected from most European rooms but was very nicely decorated in an old world style, the staff was very friendly and the hotel is currently undergoing some rennovations so expect some new updates soon.

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.
