I booked this hotel through an on-line tour company. The place is a real gem. I had a single room with a shared secon floor balcony right on the street, but the double-paned french door and window blocked out all the noise when closed. I don't know how effective that will be in warm weather; there is no air conditioner.
The room was relatively spacious and well laid out. It was beautifully decorated in the Venetian style (blue with gold accents and a Murano glass chandelier).
The hotel is well located and comparatively easy to find for Venice, and the staff is very helpful.
The vaporetto is nearby, but be warned, the cost of vaporetto travel has become exorbitant! A single ride is 6.50 euro = 9.10 dollars and it only gets more and more over-priced. Bring your walking shoes.

Small rooms, but very clean. Nice staff. But the hot water was definitely lacking--I had the best luck at night getting a warmish shower. Still would recommend it.

My main complaint about this hotel was that there was no hot water. Major turn off. I don't care how clean it was or how nice the people at the front desk were, just plain and simple, there was NO hot water.
The room was clean, but small. The breakfast was average as was the staff. They pretty much ignored us on our last morning there when I needed directions to the train station because they were arguing with each other. Then the lady gave me bad directions and we missed our train. Big let down!

The hotel is beautiful, so we were shocked when the desk clerk told us that our room would be a five-minute walk away from the hotel. Perhaps to soften the shock, the desk clerk said he had booked us a "suite"--a kind exaggeration, though we did get more than the room we had booked. It's Venice, where street signs are often missing, so it took us more than twice the anticipated amount of time to find the place. When we finally found it, our "room" was huge: a small apartment with a kitchenette hidden in a closet, a sofa bed in addition to our fullsized bed, and a large bathroom with a heated towel rack that was excellent for drying clothing after rainstorms. The decorations were lovely: exposed brick, antiqued wood, etc. There were also pans and plates, though we did not choose to cook in the room, not having expected more than a normal hotel room. The floor could have been cleaner, and the supplies could have been more consistent (no shampoo or bath gel on day 1, both on day 2), but otherwise the room was very nice.

For breakfast, we had to walk back to the hotel proper, where the breakfast was decent: the option of cappuccino as well as regular coffee or tea, croissants (Italian version, some with jam), rolls, fruit, juice, yoghurt, etc., and the option to add hot items for an additional price (e.g., omelettes). For an affordable hotel, the setting was very nice: white tablecloths, etc.

If the idea of a "suite" appeals to you, be sure to ask for "Momolo," which is what they call that particular far-away room. I still have no idea why we were sent there. You may prefer to insist on staying in the actual hotel: you don't want to pay a water bus or an expensive water taxi to check in, then have to pay for another water bus (vaporetto) or another water taxi to get your stuff to Mamolo (other whatever other distant rooms they may have). Keep in mind that the vaporettos are expensive one-way, 6.50 euros, so don't gamble and get a one-way ticket if you stay here.

The bathroom was so small. To get to the toilet or shower, you have to snake your way around the sink, then around the bidet, then side step to the toilet. To sit on the toilet you must put your feet in the shower. I couldn't believe we paid $345 a night for this room. Boy, did we get ripped off! The room was way too warm and since the air conditioning didn't work or was turned off for the fall, we had to open the window for air. As our room opened to the front of the hotel so we didn't get any sleep. The clomping noise of people walking on the board covered street out front was just too much. A room for 4, is just and extra bed squeezed into a triple room. The hotel has no elevator and no rooms on the ground floor.
