I pick lodgings based upon reviews from various websites, and their proximity to transportation and the places I need to go. This small hotel/B&B is very convenient to the Venice train station, bus station, and the Grand Canal water taxis. I literally walked ten minutes after my arrival by train to the hotel, and five minutes to the bus station to catch the airport bus on the way out of town. Watching others schlep their luggage over the cobbled streets throughout Venice confirmed that CdP is the place for home base. Breakfast selection was OK (I was spoiled in Austria just prior to my arrival,) but the coffee was great! WiFi was free as it should be, but a little slow for those who stream. There were over 100 channels of TV, but most, if not all in Italian - it would be nice to have a BBC/CNN news channel. Italian TV plays lots of first rate movies - dubbed if not already in Italian - but fun to watch anyway. There was even some live American football, with color commentary in Italian - very fun to listen to! The bed was comfortable, and the small bathroom was modern with plenty of hot water for the shower. And the hosts were very nice - when you saw them. If you are out all day, and return after 1700 or so, don't expect to see anyone at the front desk. Yea, so if you are looking for a luxurious, pampering hotel experience, this is not the place, but for everything else, you cannot beat it.
