We picked this hotel for location, especially on arrival after a long flight. And, it was easy to get to (their directions) via the Alilaguna to St. Marks and then the Water Taxi (2 stops). After that, you just walk through the alley to the square & there's the hotel.
That being said, it is not cheap, the rooms are small-ish, but it is clean, and quiet. Venice is quite expensive compared to the rest of Italy (and we have been there!), but it is unique and who knows how long it wil be there!
The staff was very available to any kind of questions and the breakfast was wonderful.
