Based on Venice standards, this hotel represents good value for family visit. We chose this hotel based on price and because we would be arriving from Florence on 23:30 train (has a 24 hr front desk and I didn't want to be dragging luggage through the streets of Venice trying to locate our hotel in the dark). We were easily able to locate the hotel (short 5 minute walk from the train station - just past the Church of Scalzi / Ponte Scalzi on Rio Terra Lista di Spagna). There was no elevator so you will need to bring you bags up a steep set of stairs upon arrival. Room was large by European standards - we were given the large double and 2 single beds as requested. Bathroom was clean but shower was quite tight (not sure that a larger person would even be able to close the doors). Breakfast was served in a small room just to side of reception - we were given a basket of croissant / buns, some wrapped cookies - crackers, wrapped cheese, a glass of orange juice and excellent coffee. Desk staff was very friendly - provided city maps with directions to various attractions. The vapparetto stop for Grand Canal / St Marks Square, Lido etc is just minutes away from the hotel - near the front of the train station - and there is a Venice Connected booth right in front of the train station (can pick-up your discounted vaparetto passes if you pre-ordered online at least 4 days in advance ) as well as a HelloVenezia booth to get the Rolling Venice cards for your teenagers (which gives you the heavily discounted 72 hr vaparetto pass for 18Euro). Lots of restaurants / gelatto / souvenir shops in the area - try Brek for a quick meal / coffee (almost directly across the street). The staff do ask you to leave your room key at the desk when you go out and advised us that the front door would be locked after 1am (although you can buzz at the door and they will let you in). I noticed that a few reviews mentioned noise - we did not find this to be a problem (unless perhaps you are a very light sleeper) and I rather enjoyed the sound of the Church bells in the distance in the morning. We flew out of Marco Polo - so walked to the Pizzale Roma (bus loop) - about a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel with our suitcases - and took bus #5 to the airport (25 minutes).
