My wife and I spent 4 days in this hotel in late October 2012. It is very well located, near Piazzale Roma, the cruise terminal, and the vaporetto station. There is also a very good supermarket near the vaporetto station. Walking distance to many attractions is enjoyable and interesting. Reception staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful, breakfast room was delightful as was the breakfast. A nice outdoor area with garden is available for some quiet time. Good value for money, considering the prices of Venetian hotels.
