Because we were taking a cruise, we we're looking for a hotel close to the port. After reading some reviews, we decided this hotel might work out for us. We were staying for a week, before boarding our ship.
What we found was a small, quaint hotel close to the port and we found it easy navigating with our luggage. The staff was friendly and very helpful. When we arrived the room was ready and we were offered a free glass of Prosecco, which we had sitting at the table right on the canal. It could not have been a more perfect beginning for our Venice experience. The Vaporetto was basically at our doorstep and there were many restaurants, some recommended by the hotel, very close and excellent. (Try "Ribot", it's close, food was great, wait staff super friendly. It quickly became our favorite).
The hotel elevator was the cutest, smallest elevator we'd ever seen. We had to go up separately from our luggage. The bellman brought the luggage on the next trip up.
Our room was in the main hotel, it was smallish, but to be expected in Europe. It was well appointed, clean and comfortable.
We were very happy with this hotel and would stay here again.
