We stayed in the Dependance, which adjoins the main hotel. This is a great area to stay if you have a mobility issue, as there are only a couple of small steps at the entrance. The price in off season was wonderful, and the rooms were incredibly spacious. There is even an outside patio (though we didn't take advantage as the weather was not great while we were there). The bathrooms were really stylish, the beds very comfortable, and it felt downright luxurious for a bunch of budget travelers. The location is wonderful, (it's on a lovely and quiet section of canal), and very close to everything. We enjoyed the complimentary Murano glass tour- it is a sales attempt, but you don't have to buy anything and it didn't feel overly pushy. The only wish I have is that breakfast would be included in the stay at the Dependance. But not really a true complaint as it allowed us to discover a delicious bakery down the street.
