I stayed in a single room on one of the upper floors of the property for two nights.
This is a very functional hotel. It is simple and clean. The decor, dominated by reds and creams was not to my taste, but certainly accurately represented on the hotel site.
Certainly, check-in was efficient, and the staff were consistently helpful, providing good restaurant recommendations.
The room itself was tiny, with a small single bed, and limited space to move. I was horrified that this upper story room, in a Venice that was still very warm in October was not air-conditioned. The reception simply refused to turn it on, due to what they report was a city regulation. This was not mentioned before arrival, and indeed, air-conditioning is advertised. In my tiny room, the lack of ventilation was unbearable. I tried opening the windows, at the advice of the front desk, and was bombarded by mosquitos which are a real problem in Venice. Do not open the window!
The breakfast has a nice continental selection, but is very average for hot food.
The rate I paid for the tiny single room was significant, and I think the worst value for money I've ever paid. If you get a good rate, this hotel would represent an excellent location for the first time visitor to Venice. However, its exorbitant rate for a single room, without any real added value makes it no more than a three star from me.
There was really nothing special to make me want to recommend it.
