The street is small and the hotel/b&b/motel/whatever is unassuming, so it's easy to miss. The rooms we were given were actually around the corner from the hotel's reception. I think there are also residential apartments in the same building. When we arrived, the woman was very nice and showed us to our rooms (her English was limiting but so was our Italian so we evened out with gestures) which was in a quiet square. Our "room" was on the 3rd floor of the building. It can be pretty creepy climbing the dark narrow stairs in the building. Our "room" was actually an apartment - it had two bedrooms, a living room, a dining room with a full kitchen and a bathroom with a shower. It was great! (Unfortunately for our friends, they had a room on the first floor that was really just one room.) Our place was still cleaned daily. The square we were situated in can get creepy at night because it's so dark and quiet but it's very close to the water buses and Piazza San Marco and the major sites. One major issue was that the a/c didn't work. I didn't leave the windows open because I didn't want mosquitoes to bite me but I still got bit. Also, the reception area isn't open 24 hours and it was very difficult to get help from the front desk. I'm not sure what time they open or close. We couldn't check out before 11am because the reception was closed. I think it's still a great value.
