“No luxury here but great location!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

This is a great hotel if you are looking for a place to safely drop off your bags during the day and have a place to comfortably sleep at night. This hotel may seem like it needs work but we were there to see Venice and not stay in our hotel all day. This hotel worked great for us. When we first arrived it seemed like walked all of Venice before finding this hotel. Little did we know there is a walkway from the main Plaza that leads right to the hotel. The location is great and within walking distance from the water shuttles/taxi stops. Plenty of restaurants and shops around. I would definitely recommend this place.

Room Tip: There is a small walkway from the Plaza right to the hotel. The sign is on the walkway.

If you stay here do not let them put you facing the noisy street, i mean really noisey, The toilet ran all night and no water pressure, asked to have ti fixed and nothing happened. They rely on theri location. We stayed in off season and did not pay much or we would have been more upset.

Very convenient location with friendly helpful front desk who smile all the time.
I checked in to room no 4058 which overlook Hard Rock Cafe as i booked canal view room.
Nicely decorated room, average size & decorated with the ancient palace decoration which we saw in museo in Venice.
Fluffy pillows & soft bed which I slept soundly every night.
The hotel is just beside the gondola service centre as well as local & branded shopping shops.
The free wifi is not working for me though but some others managed to login to Internet.
Easy access using water bus or taxi from train station.
Good value of money & easy access to San Marco attractions & boat jetty.
Recommended for couples / family.

We stayed for one night in the hotel in February and think it was a good choice to book it.

The hotel is located just a few steps from St Mark's Square (30 seconds walk from the square) so it makes a perfect base for sightseeing and walking across Venice.

We booked the hotel through Hotels.com and paid c. £65 for night which we believe was a great value considering where it is based.

Our room felt clean and it had all we needed. It was quite small though but we thought it reflected in a way the confined feel of Venice.

The service seemed OK as well. We stayed for one night only so we had little real interaction but they were friendly on arrival and they had no problems with leaving our stuff in the storage room when we checked out but still wanted to do a day of sightseeing.

The only slight visual downside was that the interior of the hotel looks a little bit 'tired' so a refreshment would help. Also be mindful of the prices of drinks in the bar downstairs: 7.5 Euros for a small draught beer was a lot.

Overall, if you have a limited budget and look for a centrally located hotel, I'd recommend.

What can we say? Excellent location, just excellent, friendly staff (please try to be nice and polite and say some words in Italian, it makes a huge difference - many users complain about the staff which is quite unfair), rooms are ok (regardless the decoration), good breakfast.

Room Tip: 502, 219. Rooms with a view.

We stayed 4 nights in this hotel and overall it was ok. Of course this isn't a very busy time but even after the carnival it seemed to work ok. The location is excellent, very central and close to piazza San Marco which was great as we could go out eat something in a very nice area and very close by.
We had some problems with the Internet connection but wefound a hotspot closely.
The rooms were nice and tidy. A part of the hotel has a very nice view to the gondolas but our room was located at the other side facing a bridge and a wall.
Just found the hotel policy of having to leave the key at the reception every time we leave the hotel a not very practical. Can imagine that at busy times can be very annoying.
Overall it was alright and if you're looking for a very central hotel this one is alright.

The Hotel was with all the facilities needed. The location is perfect because by walk you can go everywhere. I went to celebrate St. Valentain day so i wnayes smth romantic, i asked for a room in top floor. Room 502 was the best. Perfect space with a nice balcony and a beautiful view of the Cambanello tower. So ask for room 502 if you ever choose this hotel.
