We booked the Hotel Vilelmine on the strength of the Trip advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. We stayed for a week in August-September 2013. We had room no 204 which was on the 2nd floor at the front overlooking the square. The view was fantastic, the square was lively with lots going on but quietened down late evening. The room was well soundproofed so evening noise was not a problem. The staff were laid back and very friendly. Room 207 was roomy and with lots of storage space with a fridge. Air con worked well and the bed was comfortable. Bathroom a bit tired but perfectly fine with a good hot shower. Breakfast could be taken inside or on the square, we preferred the square so we could watch the comings and goings. Breakfast was good. Coffee or tea, bread, homemade marmalade, rusks, honey, jam, cake and freshly squeezed orange juice. Simple but fine. the location was perfect, in the centre of the old town a couple of minutes walk from the Venetian harbour but also close to a couple of good supermarkets and the bus station. Lots of restaurants within a couple of minutes walk. However one feature has been left off the website but should be included is "Billie" listed on the board outside as the "the coolest dog in town". He is a cutie. We would recommend this hotel and would stay again
