“Amazing location, decent hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

Stayed here while discovering Venice for the first time. The location is amazing, right next to San Marco, walking distance from almost everything.
The hotel itself is quite decent. You only get one key per room that you have to leave at the Front Desk when you leave so if your arrival times are different with whomever you are sharing the room, it takes some planning.
The only thing that disappointed me was the breakfast (included with the room). An extremely poor variety of food, no choice on pastries and the coffee comes from a horrible machine that basically gives you colored water.
For the price you pay, the hotel is what you can expect; just don't set any high expectancies upon arrival and you'll be fine.
And you'll have a better time if you eat breakfast anywhere outside of the hotel.
The staff was friendly with us and the room was not extremely noisy even though there is like a bar downstairs that can disturb light-sleepers.

Stayed December 2014

Foot steps from St Marco square, nice and quiet for a good nights sleep. Hotel staff are friendly, rooms are small as you would expect for Venice. Free wifi, breakfast was not the best but there are lots of cafes near by.

I am so glad we picked this hotel, just because of how conveniently it is located in San Marco. Good variety at breakfast and very friendly, helpful staff. We got all the directions and travel advice we needed. Room was standard sized. A bit noisy outside, but the beds were comfy enough to ensure a good night's sleep.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2014

We went for a couple of days on our mini trip round Italy. I was reading the reviews as we were on the train to Venice and feared the worse. Location wise it is in the thick of it which is great with a high chance of music going on late into the night. Being right off of St Marcos square means lots of sights food and drink on your door step so if you have a chance to get room only I would as the breakfast wasn't great. We were put in a 2nd building so don't be surprised if that happens. The hotel could do with some investment eve just cosmetically as it looked and felt dated, a good example was the bed blanket and sheets seemed old. A good base but a hotel you would just want to sleep then wake up and go again rather then spend anytime in.

Hotel is at an excellent location, in the heart of Venice, a very short walk just over a bridge to St.Marks square. The rooms though small were clean and had views of canals. The Breakfast room was busy and had a good continental breakfast included in the room price. The lanes around the hotel had a good selection of restaurants and shops. Free wifi worked ok. Overall enjoyed the stay.

Great location right behind Piazza San Marco is probably the only positive thing I can say about this establishment. It is old and tired, breakfast pretty poor in cramped conditions and staff unhelpful in the dining area. Not worth the money, tiny rooms badly in need of a refurb. Not very friendly staff. WIFI connection almost useless. Would not go back.

Let me start off by saying that the hotel is literally steps away from St Marks Square. The San Marco stop (water taxi, ACTV) is within 5-10 min walk from the hotel. High end shopping (LV, Prada, Gucci etc) is also within 5 minutes. There are plenty of restaurants near by.

We stayed in room 319. The room is tiny and the floor and bed looks like it's about to cave in. The bathroom is just as small. They have a stand in shower. The worst part of our stay is when we got back from walking around, the room stank of fish or sewer. I think they opened the windows to let the smell out but it was still noticeable.

Breakfast was average. They had the usual cereals, croissant, salami, cheese. You have to get a table to get a plate and cup of coffee. They have one person clearing and setting up tables. So if you come on a busy time, you may wait a bit.

Wifi cuts in and out. They have a computer in the lobby with printer but the printer was not working when we were there.

The staff was ok. They answer questions but did not offer information unless they were asked.
