Bad location in Venice in Nov (during aqua alta)

Since our trip overlapped with Venice's aqua alta season and with some bad rain storm days + high tides, the location near canal was unfortunate. Going out for breakfast in the morning required wading in 3 foot waters which came into the ground (first) floor of the hotel too. So we couldn't go out to other (hopefully drier) parts of Venice until the tide went out.

Average but in the center!

The best part of the Hotel is the location. As any other person who has visited Venice, it is kind of difficult to get arround with a regular map since many of the streets do not have names and do not even apppear on the map. Be aware when you are doing the booking to this hotel beacuse the first choice does not include a bathroom in the room, you are paying for a room with a shared bathroom. In addition, there is no TV at all and the WIFI only works at the loby. The manager (Geonatan) very nice and he will guide you on how to get arround Venice if you ask him.

Not worth the money!!

This was by far the worst hotel experience I have ever had ... the staff at the front desk was average (nothing special) however the rooms were disgusting. The location was OK, yet still difficult to find. It's about a 10-minute walk from Piazzale Roma and approx 20 minutes from the Rialto Bridge. The first room we checked into had black mold growing on the shower curtain, not just a few spots ... it was covered. Also, the room itself was very outdated and did not look or feel clean at all. The beds were uncomfortable and there was no AC, fan, or TV. When we asked to switch rooms, the receptionist was courteous enough to let us but the new room we received was much smaller and barely had enough room for our 2 regular-size suitcases. The bathroom was clean enough (no mold in this one) but there were mosquitos everywhere, even with the windows shut and NO AC or FAN. Considering we paid just over $200/night for this room we thought we would at least have gotten a clean, somewhat comfortable room but that was definitely not the case ... if you're looking for a cheaper hotel to stay at near the heart of Venice I suggest looking elsewhere even if you have to spend a little more.

Not the best

The airconditioner didn't work and no matter how many times you reported it nothing was done about it. VERY noisy. I not the noise from inside the hotel it was the resturant nextdoor....when the family closed the resturant at 2 am they always had their own party til very early in the morning.

Great if don't mind a little night sweat

It has a great central location on the Vaporetto line/Grand Canal. Quick walk from Vaporetto and in a quiet section of San Polo. Everything was pretty good to excellent except that the A/C doesn't work. It makes noise but doesn't blow air for some reason so after leaving the room all day with the A/C on we came back at night to a hotter than outside air room. We had to sweat the night away while sleeping - thank goodness the next night was a lot cooler and we kept the windows open throughout the day to air out the room. Also the bathroom for the room was exceptionally spacious given most bathrooms we had on our trip.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

If visiting Venice and you're between the age of 18 - 29 you definitely should get the "Rolling Venice Card." It immediately will save you money on a Vaporetto pass (multi-day that is) and also gives significant discounts at museums (Doge's Palace and Gugenheim for example). You should always just ask when buying tickets around town if they accept the card b/c sometimes the discount places aren't listed on the pamphlet you get when you buy the "Rolling Venice Card."
