Staff are unpleasant and rude. They have illegally charged my card without my consent. They refuse to rectify the situation and refuse to provide me with any business details to take it further. I would recommend staying somewhere else as my first impression is unprofessional as they seem to be more interested in money than the actual business itself since... More

in responce to your very unfair judgement we would just like to mention that you have never stayed in the hotel so not in the position to give any comment on our rooms and service. You made a reservation with us through a booking channel choosing from the booking form the prepaid one this giving you a discounted rate. The... More

Well located between San Marco and the Rialto bridge with plenty of restaurants close by, this was excellent value for the B and B room rate I paid. This is more of a guest house than hotel, no bar just a small breakfast room that offered an excellent fresh buffet style breakfast. My top floor room up in the attic... More

Venice, what an amazing place!!! I really loved this hotel. It is located in the heart of the city near Rialto Brigde and also San Marco. Staying in this hotel you will be near of good restaurants, bars and a lot of stores. The room isn't big but very confortable. The only problem for me was the bathroom, they don't... More

The hotel is clean, friendly, my room was clean and upon my request for a window overlooking the Campanile of San Marco, my wish was granted by the receptionist (always friendly staff). My room might be up on the 4th floor (gotta use stairs, no elevators!) but it's fine with me. The breakfast was good too. and the best feature... More

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

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
