The building as most of historical city is very old, and the 15th century building was not expected to become a hotel. It was actually a house to a reach aristocratic family. You will figure all that out when searching for it's entrance in the labyrinth of narrow Venice streets. It will take a couple of steep stairs to finally get into the main hall, which serves as a lobby and a breakfast room at the same time. And there you will find incredibly nice people ready to help you in every aspect of your stay in the city (including carrying your luggage up the stairs). It almost seems like they never say "no". The rooms are very different, ours was probably the largest. Very high ceilings, huge windows, nice furniture. Breakfast was simple, but that very typical for Italy: they don't eat a lot in the morning.
I will definitely recommend this hotel as a place to stay. And I will not think a minute about the choice of hotel if I am going to visit Venice in the future.
