Recent guest reviews

Just shy of the perfect hotel for a short stay in Venice. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is continental and there is plenty of it. What makes this great is the location: just a short walk to Piazza San Marco, a little further to Rialto Bridge, Gallerie dell'Accademia, and Venetian Arsenal. Access from the airport is easy using the Alilaguna (Waterbus service) at about €15.00 one way and takes around 1h 10m travelling time to S. Zaccaria wharf on the Blue Line. Don't worry too much about the details as the Venetian's are very helpful if you need a hand. The hotel is to the left and there you are.

The desk staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful at all times, particularly making arrangements ahead of time for a water taxi to pick us up at the train station and following up with us even though our wi-fi (while traveling) was intermittent. Wi-fi at hotel free and fast. The on-site restaurant completely knocked it out of the park for dinner - highly recommend. The location of this hotel is very convenient. As others have commented, I will say to not expect boutique or luxury accommodations. Our third floor room could certainly have used a decor update although it was comfortable. Walking the stairs was not a problem for us. We did hear everything above us, sounded like someone moving furniture both mornings. The view from our room was AMAZING, window opened right onto the Riva degli Schiavoni with beautiful lagoon views. For a city full of very high priced hotels, this is a value and a great location.

Wonderful location by St Marks square. Friendly and helpful staff. Room with an amazing view! Took taxi from train station, worth every penny (euro) to hotel and a wonderful way to see the city for the first time. Loved it and will come back.

Our recent stay at this hotel was just fabulous. We were there two nights and three days in total. Our room was 18 on the 1st floor. THERE IS NO LIFT/ELEVATOR at the hotel so pack light. The staff at the reception was exceptional. They were elaborate and accurate in their directions, extremely helpful in arranging water taxis and guiding on good restaurants to eat at. The room itself was tiny. Hardly any space to move, but most European hotels are like that. We asked for two twin beds (which make one king size bed). The room had no view of the lagoon. The location of the hotel is perfect. Taxi stop is right in front at San Zaccarria. Our private water taxi also stopped right in front. Stop can also be referred as "Monumento", since there is a monument right in front. Walk from the taxi stop to hotel is less then a minute. San Marco square is 5 minute walk. The closest supermarket is a 10 minute walk (ask the reception for directions). Bridge of Sighs is right next door and Rialto Bridge is a 15 minute walk. Most pleasant stay and location. I would highly recommend it!!!

Normally the rooms are good. We had two prepaid bookings. Two rooms with lagoon view for 3 nights booked by . As we arrived the reception said he received the money from only for one room !! We had a discussion for 1.30 hours !! Then my friends had to go to a aparment 10 min away which was ok but without lagoon view. They wanted to cheat us !! Then they noticed we were the wrong guests to cheat. So the last night my friends become the room and a bottle of Prosecco. But no word of sorry. It was the first time by a booking failed.

Not smart or luxurious, but you get a very warm welcome from this small, family run hotel, and I thought the location was excellent. Most of the vaporetto routes stop just along from the hotel (also the airport ferry) and, if you have one of the front rooms, the outlook over the lagoon is stunning. The views at sunrise and sunset are particularly beautiful. A lot of stairs to climb if you are on a higher floor but, other than that, the hotel was very comfortable.

Pros: Location and seaview. Cons: No lift Have more initiative to decorate the room a little or give some complimentary gift if the couples indicate honeymoon trip. Check in was smooth and fast. Reception staff was very helpful, he actually assigned one of the staff to assist in bring the luggage up to our room. really appreciate his help. Hotel facilities is actually a bit old, no lift, room furniture is usable and in working condition, albeit on the old side. Facilities is all kept clean and in working condition. For rooms that are not facing the sea, do note that mosquito could fly into your room as the hotel is base beside a sea. Do remember to request from the reception staff electrical mosquito repellent, they would be glad to assist u:) For room that are facing the sea, no complaint of mosquito. wonderful view if u are taking room that are facing the sea. Breakfast is provided. Variety and choices of food are mainly the standards European breakfast.. Lastly this hotel does not prepare anything special even if u indicate u are going for a honeymoon trip, slight disappointment in this area. Will definitely consider this hotel if me and my wife is going back for another round of honeymoon:) Was

Wonderful location but rather disappointing stay. Staff weren't welcoming at all, except the person in the restaurant for breakfast times. Food choices at breakfast were very limited, especially for one of us who is vegetarian. The room was okay, nothing special although I've read some reviews stating it is boutique which I can't understand. The room and bathroom could have done with a deep clean- I dropped something, it rolled under furniture and underneath was filthy and dust covered. Fortunately we spent little time in the room. The best thing about the hotel is its location and I think that is what the hotel relies on rather than providing a friendly, welcoming experience.

A family oriented hotel with 3 stars in the center of Venice. A great view from the rooms, you will open ur eyes and watch the lagoon view in bed. A great day start. Breakfast is enaugh equipped, and if u have a chance, try the restaurant with traditiona foods. The hotel located just a few steps away from the ferry port, so easy to reach from airport with ferries.

Fantastic location. Old fashioned but pretty. My room was number 24. Quite small but perfect for a solo traveller. Breakfast was continental and tasty. Great coffee. Dinner was gorgeous. Staff attentive and a nice welcome. Down side...very noisy - above must have been on a honeymoon! My suitcase was left in reception all day rather.than being secured safely. I went and collected the case after a day out site seeing and know staff on desk to check it was my case.
