We travelled into Venice by bus from the airport and wanted somewhere affordable (about £65 per night). It is fantastically near the station and in a quiet location, but only a few minutes away from shops and places to eat/drink. You can meander to St. Mark's in about 30 minutes.
You get a feel for the local area without the hoards of tourists.
The manager was very helpful and friendly. His English was good (thankfully) and he enjoys a joke. He gave us a complementary map that was pretty good.
Our room was on the ground floor and had a view over the courtyard. The room was decorated in a Venetian style, and had a large bathroom with plenty of room for the two of us. Both rooms were very clean. As another reviewer has said, the room was a little dark, but we found this made the room cooler, which was a welcome relief from the heat and humidity of Venice.
They supply towels, soap, shampoo, hairdryer and a box of tissues (and of course loo roll!) The manager gave us the code for the wi-fi as soon as we arrived.
Breakfast consists of croissants, fresh bread rolls, cornflakes, yoghurts, crisp bread and a range of jams/honey/chocolate/butter/cheese triangles to spread. We sat at tables in the reception area which, again, is cooler.
A choice of drinks: orange juice, milk, water, cappuccino, latte, fruit teas and English breakfast tea.
Make sure you know where this place is before you go - this hotel is in a quiet courtyard and Venice is a bit of a maze if you're not used to it.
As a footnote, we recommend the Jewish Ghetto. It's not far to get to from here and you can buy fresh fruit, snacks, meals and drinks at affordable prices (unlike near St. Mark's).
