My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our three-night stay at this small hotel, which is situated right on the lagoon. Our room had a wonderful water view. Before we arrived we asked for an upgrade to a larger room, and we were happy to find out that the front desk was able to accommodate us. Because of the double-paned windows, the room was extremely quiet, and the air conditioning was silent also. (I hate noisy window units that cycle on and off all night.) We really liked the location, too, just outside of the tourist district. We were only about five blocks from St. Mark's Square, so that was perfect. It was an easy walk from the Arsenale vaporetto stop, and the airport vaporetto (Alilaguna line) stops there also. There are so many restaurants nearby that you'll have trouble deciding where to eat. If you're more adventurous, explore the narrow streets and alleys nearby, which have a real neighborhood feeling, with some small shops and restaurants a lot cheaper than the tourist spots.
The only drawback I can think of is that our beds (twin size) were 33 inches wide, a bit narrower than the American standard. It didn't really bother us; I just mention it in case it matters to someone. The breakfast was adequate, and you can get eggs made to order for an extra fee. We found everything to be perfectly clean, and the hotel feels very well cared for.
