We stay at one of the apartments that they have available just a few steps from the hotel. We were attracted to the fact that we could all stay together and the washer. Hardly used the kitchen but it was well equipped. Apartment was clean and spacious, however, the beds were very hard. Location was great. Accademia neighborhood is very nice, little shops and cafes. Nearby Zattere great for an evening stroll and dinner. No complimentary breakfast is available for the apartments (since they have a kitchen and they assume you want to cook??) but there is a great cafe on the way to the vaporetto station (Accademia) which was more fun! Nice walk to St. Mark's Square.
