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.

Enjoyable stay

Reasonably convenient to Piazzale Roma ( bus terminal ), the train station, water bus station and the cruise ship docks ( we caught a cruise from Venice so this was significant ). Only three small bridges to cross from the bus terminal. Private water taxi mooring directly in front of the hotel ( water taxis are expensive but worth the investment for certain situations ). Access is an important issue in Venice as your options are either water taxi or walking, mostly walking. Bridges have steps not ramps so they dictate the accessibility ( imagine dragging your wheeled luggage over them ), also most walkways are cobblestone. If you stay here and are interested in Gothic Cathedrals be sure to visit the small cathedral just across the Grand Canal from the hotel, it is well worth the visit. We feel that this hotel is a little pricey but overall it was worth it.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a main water bus station just across the Grand Canal from the hotel with a major bridge close by. From this station you can access virtually anywhere in Venice although the water bus is a bit of an adventure....sort of like herding cattle.

Works for me

Overall the hotel worked for us. Its right across from the railway station. Its not very fancy, its more for a budget traveler. If you are heading to Venice for an anniversary or a special occassion this is not a great hotel. The water taxi station is right across the hotel, its useful to buy a water taxi pass. We found good restaurants around the Rialto area.

It was good not excellent!

I was looking forward to having a room with a view. Instead I got the room above the kitchen with a view of an alley where the workers take break. I was waken up every morning approx 5-6 in the morning from noise comming from the kitchen. Not ideal! Make sure youre no where near the kitchen. Other than that everthing else was GOOD.

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.
