when rating an inn type hotel one must remember not to compare to large chain hotels so that is why I would give this place 4 stars for a Venice inn. The location was just a few minutes from the S.Samuele water bus stop. The hosts spoke pretty good English and gave us detailed directions how to get to the hotel, drew us the routes to attractions, shopping' etc. When we arrived we were very hungry but were told most places were not open at that time but Renalto called a place right around the corner and made a reservation and when we arrived the waitress was waiting outside and welcomed us in. Check out was before our train departure time so they checked our luggage and we explored a few hours more. We stayed in room 10. The room was ok but the bathroom was BRAND new.
My cons for this inn - i believe for security reasons they made us bring the key to the desk upstairs each time we left which seemed strange. There was no A/C and the temp was in the 90S F but they did provide a fan.
