A beautiful hotel, very convenient to major sites and to transportation. Rooms are recently renovated, clean, and comfortable. Staff are helpful, friendly, and fluent in multiple languages. No lift, but staff will help carry bags. Highly recommended.

We stayed here in 1999 and again in 2014. The location is great, midway between Rialto and St Marks. Breakfast is included. The staff very helpful. The hotel is very clean. A few caveats : Our rooms on floor 200 very small. There is no lift, but staff willingly carries your bag to room. Rate is expensive, but so is... More

My family and I really loved our room in this hotel. It was clean, pretty, clean and quiet, and close to the "heart" of Venice. The staff were very kind to our kids, who loved their separate alcove off of our room. The restaurant downstairs, where we ate only because of the 10% discount for hotel guests, turned out to...

This hotel is very well situated, about midway between Piazza San Marco and the Rialto bridge. Staff were friendly and helpful. There's a very sweet older gentleman who works here and he carried my bag up to the fourth floor for me. When I was leaving he saw me carting my bag down the stairs and he made me put... More

Very well situated and provided just what we needed, a clean, comfortable hotel with free wifi , sky TV for better telly in English than we found anywhere else in Italy, wonderful, helpful and efficient staff and a decent restaurant below (booking needed, pricey but worth it 10% discount for hotel guests). We stayed 4 nights and would recommend this... More

Charming hotel in a great location, with a friendly, helpful staff. Wonderful breakfast provided with fabulous coffee and a plentiful selection of dishes and pastries. Room was lovely. The view looking out the window of gondoliers going by down below was magical. (also the sound of some of them singing as they went by was fabulous) Cannot recommend highly enough.... More

This is by far the most special hotel in Venice. Steps away from San Marco square- this family owned hotel has been my home away from home for almost 20 years. When I first came the owner Sandro had no rooms but made a room for me. That is the kind of place this is. Since then the hotel has... More

My friends and I LOVE this sweet hotel. The rooms were beautifully updated and comfortable after hours of walking Venice. I appreciated the efficient air conditioning since Venice can be hot and humid, even in September. The staff was friendly and super accommodating to our requests of where to go for the best of everything! The location is perfect too.... More

Strategic location, close to Piazza San Marco and surrounded by shops and eateries. As you know, hotels in Venice have no elevator, and we were given a room on the third floor. The hotel staff is kind enough to carry our luggages for us to the room during check in. Room size is adequate, clean but can be a bit... More

Medium size, clean and silent rooms. Very polite and friendly staffs. The room is well decorated. Great location half way between St. Mark's Sq. and Realto bridge. The breakfast is great. I would stay in this hotel again.
