Just back from a repeat visit here. The Wildner is easy to find and very convenient for the water bus. Like most Venetian hotels, there is no lift, but our cases were taken up the steep stairs for us. This is a B&B without lounge areas, although there is a good (but expensive)restaurant where breakfast is served.
Our room was clean and large enough for a short stay. We ditched the blankets from the drawers and they were duly removed from the room (not needed with nightime temps. of 23c!). The shower room is adequate, though the shower itself has no thermostat, so water temperature needs to be checked carefully before use. Towels were changed every day including on the first morning, even though we hung them up! Book the more expensive front rooms if you want the view across the water, but the roof-scape view from back, upper rooms is fine, and it's quiet. Do not book this hotel if you have any mobility problems, as the stairs are steep, even to the first floor.
The breakfast room is large enough for all the guests (unusual in smaller accommodation), so one does not feel rushed. There's a good selection, though there was no fight for the tinned fruit salad! Coffee is excellent and plenty of fresh ham, salami and cheese were served. If you're expecting more, you need to pay more and go to a larger hotel (and maybe eat less!).
All the staff are pleasant, not pushy, but friendly. We tend not to have questions, as we know the city.
Looking forward to our next visit.
