This hotel is on a very narrow street (in any other city it would be considered an alley!) and does not look special from the outside. But the inside is quite lovely. We arrived early in the morning were met by very friendly and helpful staff who let us leave our luggage while we roamed the city for the day and offered us breakfast even though we weren't checked in. These small kindnesses make a big difference to a tired traveler.
The room was spacious with comfortable mattresses. Bathroom had a great shower!
Breakfast was a bountiful buffet with many choices including some delicious fruit breads.
I really love the Canareggio area which is lively without being as crazy with tourists as the St Mark's area. The Abbazia is tucked away on a little side street so that it is quiet at night, but you are still only 5 min walk from Piazzale Roma.
I would definitely stay here again.More
