When I turned off the street and walked up to the entrance, a beautiful little cat came running out to greet me. That just about sums up this hotel to me - a very kind welcome, I was immediately given a free map and advice about seeing the city. The garden is beautiful and although I was there in the spring, I imagine that it is a godsend when things get sultry and stuffy in the summer. There is a very small pool of water and lanterns above where the tables are set outside. The whole place is spotlessly clean. My single room was just perfect for what I wanted - a place to spend the night. I never watch television anyway, so I always feel cable TV is wasted on me. When I hit the bed, I slept like a log for 11 hours! The single room does not have ensuite shower, so I used the common bathroom next door to my room. But no one else seemed to use it while I was there, it too was spotlessly clean, and I had the luxury of a long hot soak in a bath - just what you need after going up and down bridges all day in Venice! Breakfast is very light - rolls, jam and coffee for 5 euros - so I skipped it, but the tables and tableclothes also looked spotlessly clean. Be sure to take a print-out of Google Map when you first go there, as Venice is a mass of small lanes and alleys. On the other hand, unlike many other towns, every street and lane is clearly marked, so as long as you have a map it is virtually impossible to get lost. I thoroughly recommend this hotel, excellent value for money - although I kind of feel I would like to keep this discovery all to myself!
