Reviewed April 4, 2014

My wife and I stayed here in late March 2014. The hotel is brilliantly situated in Venice near St Marks and near a useful vaporetto stop (Giglio). There is a church straight outside the doors of the hotel with a very fancy façade.
We had a twin room, 235. It also had a small terrace on which sat a table and two chairs. The terrace over looked a small court yard below.
The room was small but had everything we needed.
The bathroom has a large walk in shower, (no bath).
There is a free safe in the wardrobe for you to use.
Breakfast are between 8:00am and 10:00am. There is a selection of cereals, fruit, cakes, cheese, bread rolls, ham, scrambled egg. hot sausage, yoghurt with or without granola and a delicious panacotta.
The coffee is excellent and refills are supplied upon request.
You can have your coffee straight or you can ask the waiter to make you something more elaborate like a cappuccino or latte...etc.
There is also a full selection of teas available include English Breakfast, Earl Grey and a very light blend called 'Prince of Wales'.
There is also a large selection of fruit and herbal teas.
The rooms are cleaned and fully serviced every day.
The staff are wonderful and always deliver prompt service with a smile.
There is now free wifi throughout the hotel.
There is lift for those who need it.
The rooms at the front facing the church are the quietest but those over the court yard are also OK. At the moment though they are refurbishing the building next door and the workmen can be heard all day in the rooms facing the court yard. The work can be quite loud so may be you would want to request a room elsewhere if you intend to relax in the room for long period through the day. Having said that I suspect you are not likely to do this as you may well have come to explore Venice.
The hotel provides an excellent spring board to the whole of Venice.
Thanks mainly to the vaporetto stop which is close by.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front of the hotel if you want a quite room. Rooms 234 & 235 have a small...

My husband and I stayed for four nights late March 2014, and were not disappointed! The hotel's location is perfect; approximately five minutes' walk from St Mark's Square. The breakfasts were more than adequate - full continental; with scrambled eggs and sausage if required. We upgraded to a Superior Room because of some of the earlier Reviews we had read - the room was adequately furnished and spotlessly clean; with ensuite facilities (including a bidet) and a large, comfy bed; overlooking the beautiful church (and no - no bells during the night). The staff were extremely polite and helpful; in fact it would be difficult to find fault with this gorgeous little hotel in Venice.

Room Tip: Our room was on the front on the first floor; and was really quiet

It's difficult to find a fault with this hotel. All the staff were friendly, and nothing was too much trouble. My single room was fairly typical single size, but beautifully furnished and decorated, and spotlessly clean. Plenty of room to hang clothes, ample drawer space, and a safe in the room. It overlooked the canal, so had views of passing gondolas. I didn't spend much time in the room during the day, but imagine it might have been a little noisy from the passing traffic. At this time of year, no gondolas at night, and the foot traffic on the nearby bridge disappeared quite early, so no disturbance for getting to sleep. Venice gets to work quite early, and of course all the services have to use the canals, so activity from 7am or even before, and the noises are magnified by the narrowness and steep walls.
Less than a minute walk to the vaporetto stop, where the airport water bus also stops. Only about 5 minutes walk to St Marks square, and 10 - 15 to the Rialto Bridge, so well placed for the main sights.
Very good breakfast buffet, with juices, fruit, cereal, yoghurt, meat, cheese, fresh pastries and a cooked option. If you want proper coffee, ask the waiter for espresso! I had to leave as soon as I had eaten on the last day, so went down early to pay the bill beforehand - without even asking, I was invited in to breakfast half an hour early.
I would definitely stay here again.

I stayed here while on business, and found it to be excellent value for the money, as most seem to be, in Venice. Once you get away from San Marco Square. If you have a lot of luggage, there is only one bridge to cross on the walk from San Marco.

On arrival, the staff greeted us very well, and appeared eager to please. The first room I was shown, was a little small, so asked if they had something just a little bigger, as I would be staying for 2-3 nights. The Manager himself, took me to see the other room. On accepting it, I was pleasantly surprised to find there was no charge for the upgrade.

The room was very clean, and that's always the first thing I check, wherever I go. Sadly, as appears the custom in Venice, there was no kettle or drinks pack. Not the end of the world as there is a cafe, 2 mins away.

Breakfast is the 'serve yourself', buffet type, and is very good. Coffee/tea is served fresh to your table.

One thing that stuck in my mind, was the genuine friendliness of the staff. They always seemed happy to speak with me, and kept a smile on their face.

If you go for a walk during the evening, as many do, keep an eye open for the 'lookie lookie' men, who will sell you a very good 'replica' designer handbag, whether you want one or not!

Room Tip: I wouldn't say that any room is any better than the other, and being next to a church, I imagine...

Visited this hotel for 4 days, it is located in a lovely square and very quiet. We had a small room over looking the courtyard which was a bit disappointing so I would upgrade if possible and have a larger room overlooking the church. It is a great location for visiting St Mark's square and seeing all the main sights. Venice is very expensive for eating out but, some of the views you get at the restaurants make it worth it. The water taxis are good value for a tour around the city.

Returned 14.03.14 from a 4 night stay.
This is a lovely hotel in a good location. 2 minute walk from No 1 Waterbus stop on the Grand Canel. It is in a peaceful location and very quiet at night. The Hotel was spotlessly clean and the towels and bed linen changed daily although we did not request it.
The staff was friendly and helpful.
I would definately return there again and would not hesitate to recommend it to any of my friends.

This is the perfect place to stay in Venice. Very close to San Marco Square but off on a quiet, lovely, picturesque alley, with a water taxi stop right there (the next closest water taxi stop is San Marco), Our room looked out onto a magnificent ornately carved white marble church--so beautiful! The hotel staff were great--very attentive, super polite in an old fashioned way and very helpful. The very generous breakfast is fantastic--various fresh fruit options, breads and pastries, yogurts, eggs, cold cuts, and most wonderful of all, little panna cottas that were DELICIOUS. You can hear some street noise (there was some construction going on when we were there), but I'll bet it's quieter than most locations. The beds are VERY firm (as in maybe too hard--but that's a matter of personal preference)
