We stayed here for 3 nights and was very glad this was our hotel of choice. Location is everything and to maximize our vacation, it was a great spot to where we wanted to go. It's not the biggest hotel, and from the outside, it may look run down. The rooms are a little small, but it has that vintage... More

We stayed at this hotel in June, 2014 for 2 nights. We had the room with one double bed and one single bed. The room was nice with high ceilings, although the bathroom was small and the shower was quite small. The hotel is an older style building and the lobby is very nice. Our friends' room was a small...

I loved this place. From the minute I booked the staff was very helpful and easy to communicate with. The hotel is located right by the Rialto Bridge, so the location couldn't be better. The decor of the hotel with the red carpet is really nice. I had a single room and it was perfect. Great bed, spacious, great bathroom.... More

Gorgeous little hotel with only 18 rooms, short walking distance between St Marks Square and the Rialto Bridge. Make sure you find out prior to arriving how to find the hotel from the pier, otherwise it is near impossible if it's your first time in Venice, even with a map! We quickly learned our way around though. Lovely reception staff,... More

We arrived in Venice after taking a water taxi from the cruise pier. We were given bad directions and walked 1 1/2 hrs with five suitcases trying to find the hotel. After we found it, the man at the desk was very pleasant and made our day better. The room was what we expected and wanted, it was Italian style,... More

We had never been to Venice and if it wasn't for the gentleman working the front desk the night we arrived, we would of been out on the street. We arrived in Venice at 10:00 pm, and the taxi boats from Treviso stopped at 12:00. No one told us, so we were stranded on a dock waiting for a boat... More

Nice hotel, close to both Rialto and St Marks. The room was a good size and the front desk staff were friendly. The walls were thin but no more so than any other place I stayed in Europe. All in all decent value for the money especially considering the prices of similar Hotels in the same area.
