Reviews really help when booking a hotel in a city you've never been to. Wanted a quiet spot to finish our Italy tour in and this was definitely the right choice. Couldn't wait for breakfast every day - it was a treat. only 6 rooms here. Had a great suite on the top floor. Was a quiet spot (construction happening next door but was finishing as we were leaving our trip). Didn't bother us as we were up when that started. Staff treated us fantastically. Nice to have a bar fridge with free still + sparkling water on hand. Folks have stated this place is tough to find, but what place isn't in Venice? Had no issues finding it thanks for the directions given in advance.
Would surely recommend this place to friends/family, and would stay here again if making the trip back to Venice.
Did I mention the breakfast? I miss it already :)
