Location of hotel is great. Along the side of the Grand Canal and alongside the Rialto Bridge. Hotel is very dated and some rooms appear to be in need of an update. (Ours) We had a room on ground floor but had to go upstairs along a long corridor and then downstairs through the breakfast room and round the corner to our room ?? Breakfast is adequate, hot and cold choices, pastries, cereal etc... Room & bathroom very clean but in need of an update. Was a very dark & cold room. Hard pillows, bed not very comfortable, but clean bedding. But, in saying this I would stay again as location along the canal with all the restaurants minutes away is ideal.

Actually we liked everything in the hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpfull. The room had an amazing view (if you have a room wih Canale Grande view). Bed was comfortable and the breackfast very good. The rooms are small but the location is perfect.

Compact but beautiful clean rooms. Balcony overlooking the grand canal,a stones throw from Rialto bridge. Great for watching the hustle and bustle of the day and the magic of Venice in the evening. Ample variety at breakfast. Good location and not too pricey.

This was a budget hotel, but for our needs it met all that was required. On arrival, the reception was very good, staff helpful, even advise on booking trips etc. The rooms were very clean, yes a bit dated, but goes with the decor of the building. The breakfast was ample, good choice for all. The location right next to the Rialto bridge was a bonus, everything is in walking distance, even the drop off taxi from the airport was near to the hotel. Why would you want to pay a premium for a short trip, well worth it.

There is no question the location is great. Right in the middle of it all and a great home base. The staff suggested an affordable boat tour which I wouldn't have found on my own. It would be nice if their lobby area facing the canal was more conducive to sitting and taking in Venice. It could be a good place to have a cup of coffee or tea and just take a little break if just a little attention to this was made. I imagine the rooms facing the canal are much better than the single one I had. The decor is indeed old but the bathroom had clearly been updated and was clean. My biggest issues were the the smell of my room and the weak, inconsistent WiFi. Additionally, due to how old the hotel is there is limited electrical plugs in the room I had and none were available near the head of the bed. At one point all of the power went out on the first floor which I had to report to the front desk as they were completely unaware. Venice is expensive and the pricing for this hotel is aligned with the area. If you stay there, you can easily go to Farini which is very close for a good coffee and a slice of pizza at an affordable price. It is a chain place but really good for something quick. You will not be ripped off there for sure.

A lovely hotel with an air of faded glamour about it which I found quite endearing. The room was perfectly adequate, well decorated with antique furniture, comfy beds and a good shower in the bathroom (always important). Breakfast was varied and tasty. Location-wise you can't really beat this place - 10 steps out of the front lobby and you're at the Rialto Bridge. Would highly recommend.

The only best thing of that hotel is its location its on the main canal and near to main bridge. Its not a luxury hotel but in its price is not bad .good value of money .its has very old building but good maintain

Stayed for 5 nights, found all staff polite, helpful and professional. Our room was clean and decorated just as you would expect in a 500 year old Venetian building, so there is no lift. The porter was more than willing to help with luggage. It all adds to charm to the experience. The walls are paper thin and I could hear the person snoring next door when I was in our bathroom, a baby cried most nights and a couple had a heated argument one night! Lots of local restaurant just outside, but do explore we found some lovely restaurants. Breakfast is adequate, the fruit salad is tinned and the toaster needs attention. It is plentiful and some greedy guests made pack lunches too! I would recommend this hotel. Plenty of hot water, good shower pressure, free wifi and a perfect location.

こちらのホテルには4泊しました。マルコポーロ空港からAlilagunaの水上ボート(片道15Euro でオレンジ線のLine Arancione)に乗り、30〜40分ほどでレアルト橋という停車駅に着きます。ここで降り、レアルト橋を渡って左側すぐにホテルがあります。ヴェネチアでは車両が禁止されていますし、たくさんの小道があり、すぐに迷ってしまうような町ですので、スーツケースを持ってホテルを探し歩くには大変だと思います。マルコーニのように、水上バスの停車駅すぐにあるホテルなどは便利だと思います。私たち(3人)の部屋は3階にありました。エレベーターはありません。ですから足の弱い方は苦労されるかもしれません(私の母は70代ですが大丈夫でした)。荷物はポーターさんが手伝ってくださいました。ここはヴェネチア(ヨーロッパ)なので、アメリカ等と比べると、部屋も狭く古めかしい感じがしましたが、夜も静かに休めました。シャワーのお湯の量も多かったです。朝食はコーヒー、ジュース、セレアル、トースト、ペストリー、卵料理、ベーコン、ハム、チーズ、ヨーグルト、リンゴやオレンジと十分でした。レアルト橋から、サンマルコ広場まで歩いて15分くらいで、ホテル前には運河がありますし、ロケーションはとても便利です。行きしはスーツケースを持ってレアルト橋を越えなくてはいけませんでしたが、ホテルから右手を5分歩いて行った方に(途中トンネルを通って回り道をしなくてはなりませんが)、水上バスの駅、S.Silvestroがあります。こちらは各駅飲み止まる1番の水中バスで、帰りはこれに乗って駅まで行きました。受付の方もレストランの予約を手伝ってくださったり親切でした。また利用したいホテルです。 I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. I took a water bus from the Marco Polo Airport which was run by Ailaguna company (15 Euro for one way). Take the Orange Line, Arancione, and in 30 or 40mins or so, you will get to the stop Rialto Bridge. Get off here and cross the bridge and the hotel is on your left. No cars are allowed in Venetia and you are easily get lost here because of it's maze like streets, so it is hard to walk around with your suitcase to get to the hotel. So I recommend to find a hotel which has easy access like Marconi. Our room was in the 3rd Floor. There was no elevator although my mother (70's) could manage. But it is tough for the person who has a leg problem. The porter helped us to take the luggage to the room. Compared to the rooms in the USA, it is much smaller and old. But we could rest well at night. There was enough hot water (both the amount and the pressure) for showering. The breakfast was served at Cafeteria and there were coffee, juice, cereal, toast, pastry, eggs, ham, bacon, cheese, yogurt, oranges, and apples. The location is great: 15 mins walk to the San Marco Square, and the canal is just in front of the hotel. There were many restaurants along the canal as well. We cross the Rialto Bridge with our suitcase when we arrived but we learned there was another water bus stop on the hotel side. Walk 5 mins right when you come out from the hotel (keep on walking through the tunnel), you will find a stop "S. Silvestro". You can take Local No.1 Line. We took this water bus to get to the Santa Maria Station. The people at the reception were kind and helped me to make a reservation for the restaurant. I will stay this hotel next time, too.

Booked this hotel via Arrived 2 hours back. First impression, very dirty rundown reception. Rude receptionist/manager. Porter took us to the room on 2nd floor, few zig zags after first floor to arrive at room. THERE IS NO LIFT. Only requested to have a clean room with canal view and paid almost double the price. Room is dirty suffocating. IT'S HOT AND THEY KEEP AIRCONDITIONER OFF!! Room is filthy! Forget canal there is no view. Manager said this hotel has NO ROOMS WITH CANAL VIEW. Pictures are misleading! Porter said there are only 2 rooms with view, someone is not right! Called, they spoke to manager but did not demand or press them to do anything. Lady at reception said she don't care about the review! said, they can't do anything either. I checked and there are cheaper options available around but we are stuck here. Already wasted 3 hours!!! I wanted to post this review so people with kids, dust allergies, elderly or paying lavish for their trip don't book with them.
