Great location, on the first side street next to the St Lucia station. You have to carry/pull your case from the station to your Hotel in Venice as there are no taxis, only boats. You can get a water bus or taxi to take you to other areas, but the case pulling still applies. In the summer heat (36C), you don't want to be struggling through the crowds with your cases.
It's a former monastery so the rooms are on the small side, but nicely decorated in an old fashioned Venetian style which adds to the atmosphere of the hotel. The bathrooms are fine, with a decent shower and proper towels (Italian towels can be like cotton sheets).
The former refectory is a now a tasteful lounge, with well priced drinks, €4 for a Bombay G&T is amazing value for Venice, where a plastic bottle of water can cost €2 or more.
Breakfast was good enough, served in the dining room or in the garden.
A good choice for Venice, atmospheric, comfortable and reasonably priced.
