Expect a budget hotel and you won't be disappointed

We stayed here 4th-7th August 2014. Reading the other reviews we knew it wasn't a *** hotel, so were not disappointed upon arrival. From the outside it looks a little rundown (then so do most buildings in Venice - it's part of the charm) and the entrance is down a side alley. (Apparently for some of the rooms you have to go out of Reception and into the building right next door). Once inside, the Reception is small, as is the lift. Our room was on the small side, the furniture and decoration were ornate venician in style, but tired. The ensuite was fine, but again tired, with a small shower cubicle and a shower that did the job, but was certainly not powerful. Toiletories and towels provided were OK, but on the rough side. The view from our room was zero, as we looked out onto a wall and couldn't see anything else. Our room had a security box. However, what made the room acceptable was the cleanliness and the air conditioning which was certainly welcome. Our room was on the side towards the back and was very quiet as night - no problems sleeping at all (although we would have liked a second pillow each). The continental breakfast was extremely minimal in choice, but you could go back for as much as you wanted. From the breakfast room window you get a great view of the Grand Canal and if you step onto the balcony, the Rialto Bridge as well. It's a pity the balcony isn't wide as it would have been lovely to sit and watch the coming and goings on the water. It's just wide enought to stand on. The hotel is in a perfect location. Right by the Rialto Bridge. Everything is within 10-20 mins walking distance and the water bus stop is opposite the hotel. We found all the staff friendly and polite. This is a budget hotel that is value for money, ideally located and very clean. Should we be looking for a budget hotel again, we would definitely return. To make this stay even more enjoyable we would have liked more choice at breakfast. Also as the security box key and your room key are on the same key-ring which they like you to hand in everytime you go out, we would have liked more security in checking who we were before handing the key over each time. At least 3 of the Receptionists hadn't seen us before but happily handed us the key we asked for - we could have been anyone really. In summary, it is great value for money, very clean and in an ideal location. We would return and recommend this budget hotel. We would not recommend this hotel for children.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Although it's lovely to sit by the Grand Canal and eat, walk into the side alleys and further away from the major attractions for better value for money. Also when you walk from the hotel to the Rialto Bridge you walk past 3 or 4 restaurants who all ask you if you want to eat. In fact this happened outside many restaurants. It did get rather bothersome but a polite 'no thank you' and they left you alone.

Great base camp

Being right by the Rialto is perfect for getting to anywhere in the city, either by foot or vaporetto. The staff are very welcoming and all speak good English. So there's a bit of peeling paintwork and not all the lights work but that's true of most places in Venice - shabby chic! One moan: no wifi in rooms.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Do NOT fall for the sales pitches of the canalfront restaurants right outside the hotel - utterly ordinary. A short walk in any direction opens up a host of far better options.
