There are many positives to report for this hotel. It is close to the rail and auto/bus arrival points. We arrived by rail and the hotel was a relatively easy 10 minute walk away (it would be nice if the Venice authorities would place ramps on all of the bridges to make rolling luggage easier). The staff is very friendly and helpful. The room (we booked a superior double with a canal view) was quite large as was the bathroom. Most importantly, they were both very clean. Breakfast (included in our booking) was quite adequate and sufficiently fueled us for the sightseeing day ahead. It is unfortunate that smoking is allowed on the exterior patio. We were forced to eat inside to avoid the choking smoke fumes. The room was quiet at night and although the bed was on the hard side it provided a good night’s sleep. The hotel is nicely located away from most of the nightlife but close to the vaporetto stop (either P. Roma (closest) or Ferrovia). There are ample restaurants and shops nearby. The only negative, and honestly an irritant, was the fact that WiFi was NOT included. It costs and unacceptable 3 Euros for one hour; 10 Euros for 24 hours. Any cost for WiFi is, in my opinion, out of touch with reality. We are a connected world and WiFi is a necessity that should NOT be an extra charge.
