Stayed for 3 nights early April 2012. Me, my wife and our daughter and her friend.
Everywhere near the Rialto Bridge and St Marks Square area is extremely expensive but we wanted to be central so had to pay (about 100 Euro's a night per room). Stayed in Venice a few times before on the Lido where you get much better value (and 3* or maybe 4*) but this trip we fancied a more central location and this was only 5 minutes walk to teh Rialto Bridge and about 10 minutes to St Marks. Ideal.
Yes, our double room was small and the bathroom was the smallest I have ever seen. But, it was all pretty clean. Yes, the walls are very thin and you can hear people whispering as they walked past your door but we slept well and it all felt pretty safe and I think we sampled the REAL VENICE !
The area around the Hotel was safe and quaint but it's a shame the bar next door wasn't a little cheaper too just for convenience.
Americans will hate the fact that there is no ICE in the hotel at all, or air conditioning, or a safe, or a pool. In fact it is pretty basic and you can't really relax anywhere except maybe in the breakfast area.
I can't fault the staff though, like any staff in any hotel BE NICE and they will do what they can.
To summarise I think this hotel is a quaint place to stay. There's canals all around you, cute narrow alleyways, busy shops and very handy for all the sights. Come with LOW expectations and you won't be disappointed ;o) You'll pay a similar price for hotels nearer to the Train Station but that's a full 20 minutes further away and nowhere near as nice an area.
I wanted to come away with some great memories of Venice not the Hotel, so for me... job done ! Would I come to this hotel again, yes I think I might.
