4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2010

We stayed here October 3-4, prior to a cruise. We arrived early in the day and they looked after our luggage while we went for lunch. Like all European hotels, the room was small according to North American standards but extremely clean and comfortable. The hotel is about one and a half blocks from St. Marks Square.

The included breakfast was incredible including scrambled eggs, sausages, pastries and rolls, and hot coffee with hot milk.

The desk arranged for a complimentary visit for us and our friends to the famous glass works.

For the morning of our full day in Venice at our request they arranged for a well qualified guide for us for a four hour walk around Venice including taking us to areas and squares not normally visited by tourists as well as passing the line to visit the Dodge's Palace.

We awoke the morning of our departure at 8:30 a.m. to the sound of a loud siren which we learned was a warning of a combined high tide and high wind from North Africa. By 10:30 a.m. not only was St. Marks Square completely flooded, but the flooding had extended one block up to the first street above the Square.

When we checked out and arranged to meet the motor boat to take us to the cruise ship, we had to meet it at a small canal about a block away. The porter accompanied us with the luggage and helped to load the luggage on the boat. Complete courtesy.

If you like a nice view from your bedroom window, then this hotel is not for you. Situated, as it is, in a narrow street surrounded by buildings, your outlook is most likely to be a wall or at best rooftops.

If, on the other hand, you want a room that is spotlessly clean, nicely carpeted and curtained, well furnished and with very comfortable beds, plus an equally clean bathroom with full sized bath, ultra efficient shower, sensible sized washbasin, bidet and WC, then this hotel will meet your requirements and more. In any case, who in their right mind would travel to Venice to sit in a hotel bedroom?!

Others have commented on the great location and close proximity to Piazza San Marco, the excellent breakfasts and the first class reception staff. I agree entirely with these comments and particularly so in respect of the front office staff who happily and speedily answered questions and gave useful directions by email, well in advance of our arrival.

It does not come cheap - like everything else in Venice - but it is value for money and is to be recommended.

This hotel is very centrally located, steps from Piazza di San Marco. Their breakfast is quite nice. Rooms are not too small, and have traditional Venetian decoration style. service at the front desk was responsive at all times.

Wonderful location, less than a 5 min walk to San Marco. The staff was wonderful and the front desk was very helpful. Some rooms were very small, but cozy and clean, pay to upgrade and get a different room if you like your space. Breakfast was good, continental style with hot scrambled eggs and sausage. Overall a wonderful stay.

This hotel is 5 minutes from the square. Perfect to explore and then to return to rest when the cruise ship tours come in, and then go out again. Our room was a corner with a view of the roof tops. Bath was standard with tub and shower . The breakfast was large and varied. The staff were friendly and informative.
When we checked out we still did not need to leave until 4pm. They put our suitcases up at the desk for us to pick up later.
Easy access to the water bus ,then to the bus terminal to the air port.

My sister and I took my mom to Italy for her 80th BD - we visited Rome and Venice.
Mom uses a walker or cane, (we brought both) so we were worried about her getting around in Venice.
The water busses were no problem for her to maneuver, as the folks there helped her on and off.
We stayed at the Best Western Montecarlo - it was a perfect location and didn't overextend our budget.
It is very walkable from the waterbus stop; she took it slowly with her rollator walker, and we carried her luggage.
The hotel's location is a 3-5 minute walk to San Marco Square.
There are plenty of shops and restaurants just outside the hotel, so there was no need to travel far if she didn't feel like it.
During the day, when she forgot something, we could run right back to the hotel to retrieve it.
The hotel has a lift, so she didn't have to climb stairs - it is a very small lift - fits no more than 3 people, but served its purpose.
We reserved a triple. The room was adequate, clean and had a sturdy bar in the tub for her to hold when showering. The bathroom though clean was a bit outdated with orange tile in the shower. The only other negative was the occasional noise coming from the water pipes.
The staff was courteous and accommodating and a great help with planning excursions.
We took their advice on which gondola ride to try and were extremely pleased.
Mom also enjoyed the tour the hotel offered to the Murano Glass Factory.
The breakfast was generous; she found plenty of enjoyable choices.
She fell in love with Venice!
