“Great Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

Medium sized room with beautiful Venetian decor, air con, sml and awkward bathroom, clean, friendly staff, no wifi. Great location as its close to Rialto bridge, shopping and restaurants. Can be a little noisy at night time. Recommended

This place was easy to find and the staff was helpful. Don't be fooled by the walk through the alley and into the dark entrance way. It turned out the room was very pretty and was overlooking the square. The room was decorated nice, but the bed was very hard. After a long day in Venice, any bed will do! The bathroom and shower were clean and modern.

We choose this hotel for its location and that turned out to be a good choice. We took the waterbus from Marco Polo airport and entered at Rialto Bridge. Not even a walk for 5 minutes to the hotel. It lays between San Marco area and Cannaregio and everything is very near by. We had a small, basic, clean room with a view on a small canal, very nice. As said before by other visitors, the bed is hard as a rock, if you have back problems, look for another hotel. But if you're staying for only a few nights and have a good condition, it is a recommended hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms on the canal side have lovely view.

Agree with previous reviews. Just tried pot luck with this and turned out fine. Myself and 2 sons in 1 room, double and a single with balcony overlooking canal, approx 200 euro for 2 nights. Bed hard as a rock, ditto pillows.but hey...you get what you pay for...clean...shower ok..etc small TV
Got a group water taxi from airport to near hotel, Apostoli bridge, easy to find with hotels website directions. Centre of town all good. Al Vagon restaurant below a bit overpriced for what you get.
All in all ...no complaints..it Is Venice which generally = $$

Room Tip: overlooking canal was unique..

One of the cheapest hotels in the center of Venice. It is walking distance from Rialto Bridge, The area is full of hustle and bustle.Small, clean and cosy rooms. The staff is helpful but no facillities like internet, coffee or breakfast...

Room Tip: While booking, ask for windows facing canal view.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

This is the hotel booking I was most worried about as there are so many mixed reviews on tripadvisor on the property. Having worked for the hotel industry myself I tend to ask the question why so? And the only reason i find is that the staff may have not been very communicative with some guests,.they are not ill intentioned but they just cant speak English. Sometimes the owners are at the reception themselves and they speak very less English. The receptionist on night guard is an indian and speaks excellent English. But all are quite helpful if you ask them a precise question. However we found this hotel to be very good for what it is and the price you pay.

To start with it is very easy to find if you download the map on their website and refer to it, we did not get lost even once. It is a small family run place located in a 400-500yr old building so one has to understand that there will definately be limitations to how one can configure modern hotel rooms in this space, but inspite of that they come out with flying colours. We stayed in their smallest room, it was small but quite comfortable. The bathroom was spotless with even a bidet. We did not find this place noisy at all as our room opened into a narrow alley (which was clean)There is a place below this hotel which serves which serves decent slices of pizza for breakfast. and another which serves good fruit based cocktails.

To sum it up I would not hesitate to stay in this hotel again,

Room Tip: choose a room which looks into the alley between buildings they are dark but quiet.
