We were a group of five and rented the Apartment Luna adjacent to the hotel in early August 2013. The apartment was beautifully fitted out, with a small but useful kitchen and dining area, two decent sized bedrooms, and great air conditioning (a good idea in Venice in August). Le of the bedrooms has two double beds, so can sleep three as long as you're OK with sharing a room.
What makes this place really special is the location. You can see the rear of the Doge's palace from the kitchen and one of the bedrooms, and almost next to the hotel is the prison attached to the palace, and at the end of the calle is the canal that runs under the bridge of sighs - an amazing location.
Stefano was extremely helpful in arranging the booking, and all of the staff were excellent every time we dealt with them. Breakfasts were decent, and the restaurant attached to the hotel seemed to get a good trade, although we didn't actually get the chance to eat there as we were only there for a few days.
We actually tried to book into the hotel based on reviews on Trip Advisor, but they didn't have enough rooms. Helpfully they suggested the apartment, and I am very glad they did.
The apartment isn't particularly cheap, but in comparison to many central hotels it is really pretty decent value, and for the money you get your own apartment in the heart of San Marco, only a few minutes walk from the madness that is Piazza San Marco.
I would stay here again.
