Booked a "French double" room. It has to be said, the room was tiny. Open floor space was about the size of a double bed so it was difficult for 2 people to dress etc at the same time. The bed was 4 foot x 6 foot. The shower was, well imagine a normal shower cubicle and cut it in half diagonally. That said:
It was very clean and modern. Air conditioning worked well in the small space. Location was perfect. Dispite being on a main street, surrounded by cafes, restaurants, shops etc, we couldn't hear a sound from the street in our first floor room. The receptionist was extremely pleasant, making a point to greet us everytime as we passed through reception. This was a small hotel, i would think about 20 rooms so service seemed very personal and friendly. Breakfast was basic, and limited, but perfectly acceptable. Towels changed everyday and room cleaned. The only thing stopping me rating 5 stars was the size of the room, but i understand that there are bigger rooms available. Had we been made aware in advance, i would probably have paid a bit extra to stay in one of those.
Venice in general was a great place to visit. Doesn't have to be expensive, snackbars are plentiful offering Pizzas or plates of pasta for about 6 euros pp. paid 7.5 euros for a beer in a cafe, 3 euros for a can in an off-license, 1 euro in a supermarket, so is as cheap or expensive as you want it to be.
We stayed for 5 days which was enough to see most of the places of interest
