After hyperventilating over the cost of hotels in Venice, we were relieved to find this option and prepared to endure some discomfort to economize. On the advice of other reviewers, we stayed in a deluxe annex room with ensuite bath and were very happy with our choice. The room was large, aggressively but tastefully floral, and relatively quiet considering we slept with open windows. The bathroom was clean but smelled — maybe because of the standing water in the floor drain, and maybe this is a common Venice issue. Hotel staff were perfunctory but always helpful. Breakfast was nothing to write home about, but the coffee was divine. Wifi was hit and miss in the annex, so we got in the habit of checking e-mail over breakfast in the main building. We are walkers and found it quite doable to walk to the Giardini and Arsenale for the Biennale, and to the train station when we departed (allow time to lift your suitcase up and down many bridge steps). We had a couple of good, inexpensive meals at the almost-next-door restaurant that I think is owned by the same family. Unless the plusher hotels halve their prices, we will stay here agin.
