“All the life of Venice from your window”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Room 308 is a great room - you can see the canal, the building across the way (which had someone moving in furniture when i was there, fascinating and not noisy at all) and a really good bathroom with bidet, top air conditioning and a good bed. The room wasn't too fancy and the instant coffee was awful (!) but even that was nice in the Venetian sunshine. The staff here are really good, cheerful and energetic and speak English (and other languages) well. The breakfast is a vast array of foods (nice) and Marco in the bar served me a wonderful Aperol Spritz with flair and care of larger hotels. The location of this hotel is ideal although it is well hidden from the street so you may walk past it a few times. You are literally a five minute walk from San Mark's square. But the great thing about this is the canal: you get to see the gondolas, the singers and players, the lovers, the water taxi drivers, the private boats, everything. I stayed in my room for an hour and just watched the scenery below. This is a great value if you want to maximize your contact with Venetian night life and action, even when you're in the room. The wifi was great too, but it was not free.

Room Tip: Get one overlooking the canal. Mine was 308 and it was terrific!

This charming hotel is perfectly located between San Marco Square and the Rialto Bridge with plenty of restaurants, sightseeing & shopping all around. It is also situated on a small canal full of gondolas every afternoon---fun to watch from the floor-to-ceiling windows in the lounge & bar areas. The rooms are delightfully appointed, including the bath, & excellent A/C. Lovely breakfasts with full buffet. We treated ourselves to a water taxi from the train station, thankfully---we may never have found it, otherwise. We stayed 3 nights & wish it could have been longer!

Room Tip: We had a room on the 1st floor (above the lobby) overlooking the canal. Nice & quiet. Friends...

Very central location and easy to get around. Nice and clean rooms. Staff was friendly but concierge lady didn't know her stuff around Venice and would recommend restaurants we could not understand why (probably having a deal ;) ) overall very pleasant stay!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Central location with easy access by water taxi. We had a room facing the canal. The room was modern, clean, and comfortable despite the relatively small sq. footage. The layout is such that the space seems much larger than it is. Double pane windows keep the sound out, and the air conditioning works well, and is quiet. The beds are very comfortable...so we slept well. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is excellent, though the breakfast buffet is average. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: i suspect all rooms are quiet.

We stayed here for one night and what a great stay it was. Clean rooms, GREAT location halfway between San Marco square and Rialto bridge. We enjoyed the rooftop lounge and the breakfast was good enough for us.
Hard to find at first unless you know your way around Venice which is a maze of small streets. Make sure you have a map, everything is hard to find at first.

In this hotel we stayed only one night, but next our visit in Venice we will spend for sure again here and we highly recommend it to all. Very nice cozy room, romantic panorama from the bar on the roof of the hotel, super nice and helpful personnel. We spend amazing evening in the restaurant downstairs with great lovely perfomance of the piano playing and very delicious meals. For the breakfast we found for us everything, we needed. And of course - the location of the hotel could not be better - 3 minutes from the main beautiful Saint mark's square. HIGHLY recommended hotel!!!

We did not enjoy our stay here at all.. We were given an upgrade to a canal view room and would've hated to see what our original room was like if this was an upgrade. The room really didn't look like the pictures at all. It was run down and old. The quality of the towels and linen were that of a motel. The breakfast was very poor and the waiters rude and unhelpful. In fact most of the staff are rude. The concierge lady was never at her desk and no one else was ever around to help. Out of the 6 hotels we stayed at on our trip, this was by far the worst!
