The hotel is in a perfect location when it come to getting around. Close to the train and bus station yet also close to the sights. The price was also good for Venice although the room was not one of the best as its views were of a wall no more than a meter away which also made the room very dark and as the room had only limited lights it was always dark. The décor in the room was tired and the walls looked like they were in desperate need of attention. Also the dust in one of the bed laps was so thick it looked as if it had never been cleaned but apart from this the hotel was clean and the corridors and reception/common areas was well decorated and maintained.
The breakfast was ok and nothing more. Having stayed in two hotels in other areas of Italy before this one it was easy to compare and was by far the worst of the three. Very limited choice although what was there was good.
Wi-fi was very expensive if you wanted it and would recommend going to a bar/cafe if you want to use the net as the price was seriously not worth it.
The service was good and the receptionists were very helpful and friendly when it came to answering any questions we had.
Overall the hotel was good for what we needed it for and i would stay again if the price was right. As for whether i would recommend it to others id have to say i would but get a room with a view and don't be too hopeful of a vast breakfast and you will be fine.
