Reviewed July 7, 2014

This hotel had a great location not far from St. Mark's Square. Easy walk there and to the vaporetto. Staff were helpful and friendly. The breakfast was decent. I stayed on the 4th floor and one of the drawbacks was the size of the bathroom. It was very small and the shower had a low ceiling. I am tall, so I was afraid I would have to stoop, but luckily there was a skylight that I could stand under that gave me room. There was also no hair dryer, which is a basic item I expect in a hotel. The last night in the hotel I had the window open and was bitten badly by mosquitos. Keep the windows closed and use the the air conditioner.

This was a very friendly family owned hotel with an elevator! The staff had great recommendations for restaurants and places to see. It is an easy stroll from the water taxi making hauling luggage a breeze. Close to St. Mark's and other attractions. We enjoyed our stay!

Excellent locations easy to get to from the ferry and great for getting around Venice. Friendly team of staff and good value drinks in the bar. Three good restaurants across the alleyway from the hotel. Recommend this hotel for your stay in Venice and I will be going back on our next visit.

Small friendly, family run hotel, centrally located in a quiet piazza. Short walk from San Zaccaria vaporetto stop, which is important when arriving and leaving with luggage! Can be done without a canal bridge too! Staff helpful. Rooms clean, if a little dated.

We stayed for two nights, and we found the hotel was in a fantastic location minutes from everything in Venice. Although dated the room was plenty big enough and extremely clean!
The hotel staff were so friendly and helpful with recommending places to eat and drink.
Overall very good value for money and would certainly recommend a stay at this hotel.

A small family run hotel, just a few minutes walk to St Mark's Square and close to the Vaparetto stop for easy travelling around. A great location from which to explore this fabulous city. Staff very friendly and helpful.
