It was a fairly expensive rate, but nowhere in Venice is cheap. It was a great location within walking distance from the main bus and rail termini, if you have a lot of luggage you only had to cross a couple of bridges to get to it and the hotel can be seen when you get off the airport bus.
Also the main Vaporetto stops were close by, which take you to St Marks Square and all points west.
Breakfast was good with a nice garden area outside. Staff were friendly and helpful.On the morning of the cruise, again just a short walk to the people mover which takes you to the cruise port. If we started another cruise from Venice will will stay here again.
