We stayed here in June 2008 for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon.
We were guided by Citalia's recommendation that this is a 'favourite' with Citalia guests, who enjoy 'taking breakfast in the pretty courtyard'. I cannot understand why it's a favourite as it is the worst European Hotel I have stayed in. The only thing this place has going for it is the location, (2 minutes' walk from St Mark's Square but nevertheless quiet). Otherise, it was awful. The room was very small, the furniture shabby, the carpet stained and smelly, the shower room (no bath) smelt of damp, and the view from our room was of a roof! The dining room (if you can call it that) comprised two interlinked, windowless rooms more akin to a run-down cafe. The breakfast was appalling - the worst I have ever experienced in a hotel - comprising just yoghurts, a limited range of cereals, tomatoes, pre-packed cream cheese and stale rolls. Our room key never worked properly, and we had to keep going back to reception to ask them to let us in, despite changing the key twice. After all the hustle, bustle and heat of Venice on a hot summer's day, you want to return to a pleasant hotel & room, and the Do Pozzi does not provide that. What made it worse, was the 'pretty courtyard' described in the Citalia brochure was in the process of major refurbishment and was unavailable, therefore you couldn't even escape the room to enjoy a coffee outside. One tip though for Venice in general - if, like us, you want to escape the throngs of people, head for the island of Murano. It is a miniature Venice - untouched, tranquil and beautiful. The only disappointing thing about Murano was the cafes and restaurants close mid-afternoon, so don't plan on having anrelaxing, evening meal on the island.
