Recent guest reviews

This was the first trip to Venice for my wife and I. We wanted a hotel within walking distance to St. Mark's but not in the middle of all the crowds. This hotel was perfect, on the water, very close to the Arsenale water bus stop. There are several restaurants down the street, frequented by local residents. The breakfast at the hotel was excellent and we enjoyed sitting out on the sidewalk tables enjoying the water view to start the day.

This hotel was at a good location short walk from San Marco square. Staff was on the whole extremely helpful. The room was clean but tight on space.

Venice was the last stop on a trip to France and Italy with my teenage daughters. The room was nicely appointed but a bit tight. Having our own private rooftop terrace made up for lack of space, but we didn't have a view. The staff was very helpful and accommodating, breakfast (included) was adequate but nothing to rave about. The location was questionable - it was almost the last stop on the #1 ferry - close to the park housing the Venice Binnaele but a long walk from the center Venice. A good hotel if you are looking for a quiet time away from the action.

This is a great little hotel. The location is very convenient - we saved a bundle by taking the water bus from the airport instead of a water taxi, and then it was just an easy walk from the Arsenale stop to the hotel. It was also nice that the hotel is located in a quieter part of Venice; it's outside the crazy hustle and bustle of San Marco, but still totally close enough to easily walk to all the main sites. Our room was an economy room on the first floor, so it was a little noisy in the morning because it was right next to the breakfast area, but no big deal since we wanted to be out and about early anyway. If you're a light sleeper, I'd suggest booking a room on one of the upper floors. The breakfast was fine, nothing fancy, but it was more than enough to fill our bellies and get on with our day. The staff at the hotel were wonderful - super friendly and very helpful. All in all, we loved this hotel and hope we'll get to visit Venice again some day!

Great location, front desk very helpful, and good breakfast.
