We chose this due it's proximity to the train station as I didn't fancy carrying luggage through Venice after travelling from Paris via Milan (amazing station). The hotel is in a great location, 100 or so metres from the station up a small alley in an area that is buzzing all day and evening and yet in the hotel there is almost no noise (church bells excluded-this is Italy and some barking dogs-this is Venice).
The reception we got was first class, not only warm and friendly but genuine, checking how we were getting to the airport (we bought a 48 hour Vaporetto plus bus to airport ticket online before we left) and telling us that we could leave luggage here on the day of departure if we wished.
This is a "tardis" like hotel with a huge hall of a lounge/bar (check out the loo under the pulpit), nice rooms, we took a superior room and very nice it was too, nice terrace (bit nippy in November) and wide corridors.
Room had everything except tea/coffee. Free WiFi throughout the hotel (although it's a bit slow), good sized flat screen TV. Breakfast was good.
Our main criteria for rating an hotel is quality of sleep followed by service. I slept like a log but my wife found the beds too hard and as said, the service was first class
Great city centre Hotel that we would recommend and definitely stay in again.
