In fairness, almost everywhere is walking distance in Venice. But still, nice room, comfortable bed, good breakfast. Had an outside bath but it was only for our room. Recommended for someone visiting Venice on a budget. It was much cheaper than most places we looked at online.

This hotel was very cheap and is located quite close to the Realto bridge - which is a really good location. I got a room on the ground floor and it just smelled really bad I think because of all the flooding water. The smell was so strong and so bad I wanted to leave the room every time I got into it. Staff at the hotel were quite rude and not very friendly. Breakfast wasn't very impressive - not much to choose from at all. Bathroom was shared and extremely tiny. The furniture in the bedroom was made of wood and was very old. This also created a lot of smell and unpleasantness. I guess this place is really sufficient if you're looking for a bed to sleep in that is in a good location and doesn't cost much.

Room Tip: I heard from other travellers that the rooms upstairs are quite okay and don't smell as bad. Maybe ask if you can get a room not on the ground floor. But beware that there are no elevators so you will have to carry your luggages up the stairs.

Dear Gill,
thank for your post.
You are right, our singles rooms at the ground floor are for who wants to have a ceap place to sleep in venice.
We advise our guests that this kind of rooms are very small and at the ground floor. The room costs less than the hostel but you do not have to share it with other guests!

Our room was very cosy,warm and clean which was great.The staff were very helpful and the location was ideal for us. The only downside was the bathroom which was very small.

Stayed in the Annex for 3 nights and was satisfied with the accommodation.
Although, it was hard getting up and down the stairs with luggage since there were no elevators.
For its price and location, I think this is a great deal in Venice.
The main street near the hotel is always full of activity and the hotel is walking distance to most of Venice most famous sights.

Although cheap for Venice, this hotel is very comfortable, well-furnished, central and convenient. We stayed in the Annex, which I would highly recommend as the main hotel rooms sound a bit grim from other reviews, but the annex is great. We only saw staff for check-in and check-out because of this, but they were polite and helpful, no problems at all.

Our room was large, beds were comfortable, bathroom was a large wet room with an excellent shower, basin, bidet and toilet. A small dressing room between bedroom and bathroom had a wardrobe and safe. The room has classical Venetian decor with tasteful marble floors and Murano glass light fittings.. Nice.

The area is great, in a quiet lane, but only a short stroll to Strada Nuova, with great shopping and restaurants and easy access to Vaporetto stop and an easy walk to the major tourist attractions. I'd happily stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for the Annex.
