A fantastic little hotel just off the main tourist-strip on Cannaregio. The Hotel has gone to a lot of effort to offer an authentic Venetian experience but at an affordable price. The rooms are well appointed and immaculately clean. We booked the cheapest room available and were not disappointed; the room as a decent size, there was ample storage space, the bathroom was by far the best we had in Italy and there was even a couple of English News Channels available on the TV.
Breakfast was very simple but perfectly adequate and the pastries were very tasty - the coffee was also good. The breakfast area is very small but if it is full then there is the option to take your breakfast in your room or on the canal. The latter would have been lovely but it was raining pretty much the whole time we were in Venice.
The hotel’s location was good, a short walk from the train station and just around the corner from the shops and restaurants. Also very good for transport – there is a waterbus stop just outside the hotel (Guglie), which gets you to Murano (No. 4.2) and also to St Mark’s (No. 4.1/5.1 but via the “back route”). If you want to get a waterbus down the Grand Canal, then you can get the No. 1 from the stops at Ferrovia (train station) or S. Marcuola – both of which are a short walk away.
The hotel staff were great, very helpful and were happy to let us leave our bags under the stairs after check-out. They also offer a 5% discount for cash.
The only negative was the noise from the other rooms. Obviously the hotel is in a very old building and the insulation between rooms isn’t that great, especially from the room above. If you are a light sleeper then I recommend asking for a room on the top floor.
Otherwise, this is a great hotel and if you are on a budget then I doubt you can get more for you money in Venice! Recommended!
