Clean Hotel Friendly staff, Beautiful Breakfast at La cupola Restaurant overlooking the grand canal each ordered and served individually by the waiter 😊Very easily access 5 minutes walk from piazzale Roma just opposite Santa Lucia train station Hotel has a private pier were u can take a water taxi or just cross the bridge and get the Ferovia water bus. A Gondola servizio is just next to the hotel or if you rather walk follow the street signs to Rialto and St Marks Square 😉 and get lost in the iconic amazing narrow streets admiring the beautiful houses and bridges 😉

This hotel has an amazing location and beautiful furnishings. I was disappointed in the air conditioning, but they provided a fan to help with the warm conditions. The breakfast was absolutely amazing. I would definitely recommend visiting this hotel in cooler months. Also, the rooftop lounge has amazing views of Venice!

The most attractive thing about this hotel for me was the location. I had quick access to the train station and the airport. The hotel is old ,but blends right into the cultures of the environment.❤️❤️

We highly recommend this hotel not only for the position (in front of the trains' station) but also for the nice rooms, the beautiful lounge, the good breakfast and the kindness of the staff. You can have dinner in the roof terrace. We hope to come back to continue in discovering Venice.

We arrived at the hotel by water taxi from Venice airport about 25 minutes away . The best way to arrive . The Hotel is located on The Grand Canal opposite the railway station . Hotel staff very helpful when sorting out an itinerary for our 4 day trip . The hotel style and our 220 was a reasonable size and good modern bathroom . The location of our room was in a quiet part of the building so not much noise from outside . Breakfast was served inside or outside and was very good . We sat outside every morning as the weather was good .The restaurant staff were first class and very efficient even when it was busy which it was most of the time .One evening we had dinner on the roof terrace which was a great experience .over looking the Canal .Water bus stations were just over the bridge and the best way to get around and not to expensive. we bought a 48 hour pass for 60 euro's each and were easy to use .The gondola ride was booked through the hotel and one was waiting for us just outside the hotel , A must do while in Venice. Visit St Marks square and Basilica . Several other churches are well worth a visit .,The hotel will give you a map to find your way around. plenty of shops ,cafes and restaurants to chose from while in the City .The Rialto Bridge area is great for bars etc sit and watch the canal in full swing . We bought some glass back with from a small shop in square Gemia across the bridge near the hotel .Book your water taxi back to the airport via the hotel well in advance as can be busy ,Cost is reasonable as a car taxi is about the same but takes much longer .The water taxi stops outside the hotel and is a great experience and end to a visit to Venice .Will be back !
