Great Central Location

Multi-lingual staff very courteous and helpful. Location perfect for walking, tours, etc. Single room overlooked gondolas and Hard Rock Cafe - impossible to sleep until late at night. Noisy, drunken people passing by all the time. Gondoliers noisey in morning and during day. Hotel needs to put instructions on wall against wall switches, advising on usage. TV too small, out of date.

Great. location

If you don't like being lost in Venice this is an easy hotel to find after wandering the streets and drinking wine. My room was the size of a closet even tho it fit a double bed. When my suitcase was open, then I couldn't open the door. However, I had a fantastic view of the gondola in que. Staff looked bored and tired of tourists. I thought breakfast was included but it wasn't, so read the fine print. So yes you can embark right from the hotel but only by water taxi or gondola, either way, $100€ or more. Room was very clean, but amenities were Best Western plastic cups.

Small rooms, clean, prime location

The rooms in this hotel are quite small but I was impressed with how clean they were. The staff was helpful. The breakfast provided substantial options compared to other hotels in the area. I like to do yoga while traveling but the room didn't have any floor space. The hotel has air-conditioning which was a real bonus. There is no room service or hotel restaurant. There's a mini-bar in the room. The hotel is right off Piazza San Marco but can be hard to find. Be prepared to get lost.
