I would like to thank the Hotel Staff for their very excellent friendship, The room was very tiny (you can't expect nothing more in Venice) but very neat and clean. You can sit outside and have a romantic dinner with your beloved nearby to the canal.

The staff are friendly, knowledgable and willing to help in any way they can. The hotel is right on a small canal just behind the bus/train termini. You can walk... More

Easy check-in following online reservation on short notice. Staff very helpful. Parking at Tronchetto garage, people mover to Piazzale Roma, 200 meter walk to hotel via one bridge. Basic rooms unable to use lift, quite a hike up stairs. Room fairly cramped, yet fair for price; shower small. Location back fired when we left early Sun am-people mover not open,... More
