Located in Dorsoduro, it is about 50-60m from the Accademia water ferry/vaporetto stop and the Accademia museum. The canal it runs along is the Rio San Trovaso, and it is located down a small alleyway, you will see a small plaque at the start of the alley and a plaque at the door. So it's quite easy to find if you use those landmarks.
Our room was separate to the reception, the gentlemen at the office led us to it once we checked in, it was only 2 doors down.
The area is a lot quieter than San Marco, but it's in a good spot where you can easily get to St Mark Square and other main areas.
The staff were helpful and accommodated any needs we had.
The room itself was very spacious, we didn't have a view of the canal, but it didn't bother us as we were out most of the day and night. The bed is comfy and there is a small fridge and lots of cupboard space, our bathroom was big and had everything we needed. Shower was hot and good pressure, lots of room too so we weren't cramped. We went in mid July 2015 so it was hot, the room had an air conditioner and kept the room nice and cool.
The curtains were a bit thin, they didn't block out much sun in the morning but that's really the only negative with the room.
The wifi was free and we had no issue with speed or it dropping out.
Breakfast was cereal, fruit, yoghurt, pastries, eggs etc.
