This was a nice surprise. Like other reviewers mentioned, it is in a quiet neighborhood and after negotiating the crowds on the vaporetto and other places, it was a nice to return to back to the hotel. I stayed in a room in the annex and found it to be very comfortable. It was nicely decorated and even though there was not a full shower in the bathroom, it was not inconvienent to wipe down the water when done. Paolo and his staff were very pleasant ans made sure everything was just right. Being close to the train station was a plus. You can take a vaporetto from Piazza deRoma to a stop about a block away from the hotel. The cobblestones make it hard to to manuever your luggage.
