Booked this hotel via Groupon so was a bit dubious - but certainly no need to worry at all! Beautiful location - right beside a canal in this fantastic area of Dorsoduro which is not as touristy as most areas but has so much to see and interesting places. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help... More

A great base in a wonderful quiet location close to the Ponte dei Pugni. It is just a short walk from the Ca Rezzonico water bus stop - with no bridges to cross between. Our room was tastefully decorated with a great chandelier, the only fault was a lack of storage space. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast... More

Good location and helpful staff. But our room was rather tired, no wifi signal, dated shower, nowhere to plug in the kettle except on the floor by the door, damaged plaster ... Needs updating. Breakfast OK but basic. The historic staircase is nice to look at but, frankly, a bind to get up and down. Not a place for anyone... More

What a great find. The hotel is in a very good location between 2 of the best squares we saw during our recent 5 days in Venice. It is in Dorsoduro district 2 min walk from CaRezzonica palace and water bus stop. It is on a quiet canal but just a few minutes walk to the busy squares where there... More

This lovely little hotel is in a quiet neighborhood near the Ca'Rezonnico stop. Staff were friendly and our room had plenty of character, including plaster trim and a Venetian glass chandelier. A simple, plentiful cold breakfast was available every morning, along with hot tea or coffee. We could use the Wi-Fi in our second-floor room, although sometimes the signal was... More

We stayed here for a long weekend for our honeymoon and can't fault it. The hotel is in the less tourist-centred area of Dorsoduro, situated on a quiet side street. The building itself is magnificent, and our room was perfect for our needs. The shower area is very small and takes a bit of getting used to, but is functional.... More

Great hotel in an ideal location, 10 minutes walk to the Academia Bridge or a 10 min vaporetta ride to St Marks Square. Lots of local reasonably priced restaurants around and a good sized supermarket nearby. The hotel has free wifi , good sized rooms in a traditional decor with all the extras such as tea and coffee making facilities,... More

This hotel was AWESOME. The location was great, staff was helpful. When we arrived, she already knew and was ready for us. It is easy access to water taxi as well. Breakfast was just ok but not a deal breaker. They even helped us to determine what to do and where to go.
