“Good value for the budget traveler”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

As stated in the other reviews, this is not luxury accommodation. However, if you want a clean, quiet, comfortable and safe place to sleep that won't break the bank, this may fill the bill. It is conveniently close to the Giardini vaporetto stop, in a quiet part of Venice that is nice to escape to after dealing with the crowds in the tourist areas, while at the same time an easy walk from San Marco. It was fun talking to the Europeans we met in the breakfast room--I think we were the only Americans staying there at the time.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I visited Venice recently, I was not sure about how this place would be, it was slightly difficult to find it in the map, due to the peculiar numbering and distribution of streets in the area, this was by far the worst think I can say about this hotel. Do not come here if you intend to have jacuzzi, high speed internet and a LED TV in your room, if you are interested in a simple room with a private bathroom, very clean and tidy and a helpful and extremely warm staff, everything close to San Marco, this is your place, I will certainly return on my next trip to Venice. They informed me about an excellent trattoria nearby and lent me a pair of boots to wander around the centre of Venice with its peculiar acqua alta.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

This was the third time I had stayed here - that in itself must show how much I rate it! Just a short walk - about 15 to 20 minutes from St. Marks - and a beautiful walk too along the Grand Canal. Situated next to a park, it was really quiet and also a very safe area for anyone travelling alone. The staff are very welcoming and really make you feel at home. The girl on the desk speaks English really well. What I liked were the nice little touches like being able to fill up your water bottle in the dining room at any time and a large fridge for the use of guests. It was spotlessly clean and the breakfasts were very good. I stayed in about six different places in Italy this year, including 4 star hotels but this was in my mind the best in every respect!

On a Pilgrimage from the USA to Italy with a group of 28 and this lodging is very basic. No TV in room, only bed(s) and private bathroom with Air Conditioning. Internet available for a fee. There was a Continental Breakfast served in the morning.
