Breakfast was very good with nice variety. Hotel is walking distance from the railway station and the water-bus stop. Rooms are clean and adequate. We did find a few mosquitos inside the room but did not inform the front desk.

We only stayed here for 1 night prior to a cruise. After reading previous reviews I was uncertain of what to expect. No worries were needed. We found this hotel to be a wonderful, clean, tidy and friendly staff. We were fortunate to be given rooms in a small courtyard at the rear of the hotel. These rooms were of... More

Very nice hotel right across from the train station. Rooms were clean and relatively comfortable. The morning buffet breakfast was included in the room rate, and was excellent. Water taxis are right in front of the hotel to take you to the square, or you can walk 20 minutes to the square. I'd stay here again.

We stayed here with our two teenage boys and loved it. The rooms were great although we didn't have a canal view. The breakfast was good with variety. We ate on the rooftop for lunch and it was great. We also ate in the downstairs restaurant for dinner and that was good too. The staff throughout the whole hotel were... More

Check in was crowded but uneventful. I thought service at check in was fine but I can see how with the long lines tempers could flare. Room was very mediocre. The wait staff at breakfast was again very undermanned. Given the rates they should hire some more people and get better reviews. Overall a very mediocre experience. Under new management... More

The hotel is barely 5 to 7 minutes walking from Venice railway station which is right at the waterfront. We were not lucky to have a water front room however it did not bother us as we were only there to sleep at night. Water bus or vaporetto run 24/7 so no matter what you arrive this place is buzzing... More

We had a very comfortable and enjoyable stay at this hotel. Staff is super friendly, we were made very welcome - and nothing was too much trouble. We had a nice Patio Room. Some of our friends had rooms that were much smaller, but it did not bother us much because we were out and about so much. The roof... More

We had a room that overlooked the waterways and the view was outstanding...the hotel is right across the main railway station and is near to a variety of good cafes, shops and attractions! The breakfast was amazing at the hotel. Although the rooms were a little small, it was charming and cozy. Overall, it is ideal place to stay to... More

It is away from the main part of Venice, and that is actually a great thing! It is so close to charming and adorable neighborhoods and restaurants and it is right on the canal so if you want to see water and the canals you just have to step outside. The rooms were extremely small but I think that is... More
