We wanted a hotel that was close to cruise terminal and also within easy reach of st marks square and central venice. We were in venice for a few days and then went on a cruise from there.
This is a true gem of a hotel.
The hotel organized a airport to hotel transfer which was great as this was our first visit to venice and we didn't want to queue up for the local airport transfer bus.
The rooms are comfortable and clean. The staff were excellent, friendly and accommodating to all our needs.
You can walk to st marks square through the little alley ways and over bridges which takes about 20 minutes from here or you can go to the main vaporetto terminal behind the hotel and catch a water taxi instead.
Breakfast was expensive so we walked to a Little local bar and had coffee with pastries.
You can see true venice from here.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wanted to visit venice and who were taking a cruise.
