Recent guest reviews

I have been in the lovely hotel for Eastern holidays with my wife and the kids 12 and 14 yrs old. The room was just fantastic and the service was super. the patio on the canal was so charming for an aperitive or just relaxing.

Small hotel right off Piazza San Marco with comfortable rooms and excellent breakfast. It is situated up the canal from the Bridge of Sighs. Lots of restaurants in the neighborhood. Helpful front desk. Will stay here again.

Nothings easy to find in Venice so take a map,but when you do find it it’s in a great location. Reception staff polite and accommodating, hotel very clean and bedroom large. Prices for drinks in the bar very expensive and breakfast a little disappointing but overall lovely stay

Breakfast was great. The room was good sized. The shower/tub was built more for a tub and less for a shower. When I tried to shower I had to be careful to get water everywhere. Bed was fine, liked the pillows.

We came back late (but not so late, 11:30pm) because our train from a day trip to Ravenna was delayed. Imagine our chagrin when the front door was locked. Finally someone came to the lobby after I pounded on the door, and even then he did not open the door with any sense of urgency and gave us dirty looks. The front desk staff who checked us in was rude and condescending. We travel all the way to Venice to be treated this way? And BTW the breakfast is not very good either. And there is noise from people walking in front of the building. And we went to the bar but nobody was there. And we had to ask for a blanket because they forgot to turn the heat on. Do you get the idea?

Superb Hotel staff in a fantastic area..Close to all the main attractions. Quality breakfast with a great choice of food.., Very comfortable and stylish rooms in the heart of Venice. Great restaurants in the area..Great Wi Fi..Has a Bar open for coffee and drinks open until 11:00 pm away from the hustle and bustle..Also a great courtyard overlooking the canal..Would definitively stay here again..Highly recommend this hotel..

Right off San Marco so easy to get to yet quiet, a bit of an oasis. Lovely breakfast room and our room (junior suite) was large with lovely light, looking over a canal. Desk attendants largely quite helpful. I was a bit apprehensive as the gondoliers can be rather noisy during the day but things quieted down at night. Easy to go for a run if you go before 9am.

Friendly staff, lovely breakfast, comfortable, stylish rooms right in the heart of Venice. Great restaurant serving freshly made pizzas and pasta right opposite the front door. I'd highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed for just one night but wished we had time for more. The room quality was really good in every respect and the breakfast was plentiful and OK quality. Would have been better rated had the hot food actually been hot. The reception staff are very good and helpful. It made our stay very pleasant.

Perfect location. 5 mins to St Mark's square. We had a junior suite which was very spacious, canal view and view of bridge of sighs. Helpful staff. Breakfast was nothing special but location made up for this.
