My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights in September. The service was excellent and we ended up with a room looking over the grand canal, which was very nice and surprisingly quiet. The room was on the small size, but very quaint and nice. The bed was on the hard side for me, which would be my only real complaint. The hotel didn't seem very busy until our last day so we had no problem eating breakfast and having a nightcap out at one of the two tables on the dock.
We took a private taxi (110 Euro) from the airport to the hotel which I highly recommend if you can. I am sure the shared taxi (~32 Euro) is good as well. It is a really nice way to approach Venice and get to where you want to go with the least hassle.
Our favorite thing about this hotel is the location. You are away from St. Mark's square and the other touristy places, which we really liked. There are some great neighborhoods to explore around the hotel and the crowds are a lot less than the east side of town, where you can easily get to when you want to. You might not like this location if you have issues getting lost, or don't like to walk. You can take the public boat places, but it is much easier to just go out walking. Getting lost in Venice is inevitable. If you let it stress you out you will be miserable. If you have fun with it, it is a great way to explore the city. I would recommend this hotel and gladly stay here next time I am in Venice.
