Any hotel in the heart of San Marco, overlooking a canal, will be pricey. This was no exception, costing about 240 euro a night. It was a good hotel. Small but nicely equipped rooms. The shower had plenty of hot water and a full-size tub with jacuzzi jets. Our room overlooked a canal. The breakfast was typical and adequate, served 7-10:30 am. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room is a very short level walk (10 yards) from the Vaporetta stop to the hotel. Everything you want to see in San Marco is 10 minutes' walk. The canal was noisy but quiet later that evening.
