“Nice staff but issues with breakfast”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

Stayed with my wife for three nights over the weekend. Good location but best approached from Rialto as opposed to San Marco as much easier to find. The rooms are ok in size with decent en suites. Staff were very helpful with good interaction and charisma.

What is disappointing is the breakfast room which is tiny and makes for very cramped meals first thing in the morning.

Our room was by reception and meant noise but it was tolerable. No public areas to sit and relax so it's really sitting in one's room which makes for a limited experience.

Stayed February 2013, traveled as a couple

Nice room, very very good mattress for bed. Silent room. Position is perfect. Breakfast good. The bedroom totally new, very clean. The window, where you see san Marco campanile and the passing gondolas is an amazing view. The working stuff very nice and helpful.

This hotel is truly designed in a Venetian classical style. We stayed there for 2 nights and were very pleased with the location and the hotel itself. We took a bigger room and it was so beautiful!!! With two windows and a spacious bathroom. We also liked the price, which was very good for this location and period (August). So, if you want to fully enjoy Venice and get the taste of Venetian style - choose this hotel :)

Room Tip: Better take a bigger room :)

Such a great hotel, loved how we stayed in a palace! Beautiful, big n ancient! Very clean n welcoming! The reception man showed us things to do n see on a map, n showed us to our room.
U have to go to a diff reception desk to the actual palace. Loved how we had a balcony to have a smoke n watch the world go by, gondolas. Had fun talkin to the Italians from the balcony. Breakfast was great! Except it was still all their when we got back around 3? The milk would of went of n the meats, but looked in the fridge to put our champagne n they just put it all back in their. Hrrmm yucky. Anyways such a good lil location. I do recommend do not go to the rest next door as its grabs u with the €10 lunch but really n cause by the time u pay for service charges n so on its ridiculous n the food was shocking! Great for us backpackers to treat ourselfs to a palace that was reasonably cheap! We're a couple n we enjoyed it very much.

This was an amzing little hotel. I wasn't expecting much considering I was paying 50 euro a night, but it exceeded my expectations. The staff member who greeted me on arrival spoke flawless english, and was very friendly and helpful, supplying me with a map and suggesting things to do, showing me to my room in the annex and assuring me that the streets are safe at night (it wasn't worrying me, but nice to know they reassure people)

Breakfast is great, and the staff are very attentive and friendly, asking if you want coffee while you are filling your plate.

Very charmingly appointed rooms, especially the annex which has a sitting room separate from the bedroom in some rooms. Would definitely stay here again!

Oh the only downside, their double beds are two singles pushed together :/

Room Tip: Stay in the annex if you can. If you stay in the main building you need to hand your key in as you l...

We stayed in this hotel in November 2012. This hotel has a great location and a friendly staff. This hotel is very near to San Mark's Plaza and vaporetto (water buses) stops. The breakfast was awesome. Rooms are decorative. The hotel manager gave us free upgrade of the room as well :) We loved our stay in this hotel.

Pros:
1) Great location (right between S. Marco's Square and the Rialto Bridge, approximately five minutes' walk in either direction).
2) Delicious complimentary breakfast .
3) Very helpful and kind staff at the front desk. They gave us a map of Venice and circled sights and such. When it rained, they lent us an umbrella.
4) Generally clean (fresh towels, shampoo and soap; but a floor that seemed unswept) and fairly large room with bed, couch, television, fridge/sidetable combo, and personal bathroom.

Cons:
Only two, but they were enough to make us uncomfortable.
1) Very thin walls.
2) Staff knocked once and then entered our room. It was in the afternoon, and I'm sure they assumed we were out vacationing. However, it was intrusive. The woman was apologetic, but did not offer to give us a discount or something. After that I never felt completely comfortable that we'd have privacy. Whatever they needed to do (measure the window, or something? it was weird), it should have been done from 11-2 (the time between checkout and checkin) or some other time when no guests or guests' belongings were present.

We suggest looking at the hotel on Google Maps Streetview so you will recognize the building, but we found it easy to find without it because there is a banner over the doorway with the hotel's name.

All in all, we really enjoyed our stay. However, I thought these things may be important to mention to future guests. Some people don't mind hiccups like thin walls or staff intrusions; for others, it ruins their vacation.

Room Tip: Oh, and be aware that you might book a room in the hotel's annex, which is just a street away an...
