We stayed here for a couple of days in the heat of August 2013. First of all, Venice is a difficult city to navigate through. Get a map before you come here, and make sure you have some Euros in cash before you arrive in the middle of St.Marcus Square. That being said; here's the hotel:
When we arrived the manager was at his other hotel to welcome arriving guests there. So we had to call him and tell him we were waiting outside a locked hotel. He said he would be back in 10-15 mins, but we waited for about 30. When he arrived there were other tourists also waiting to check in to the hotel.
After checking in the rest was okey. The rooms are clean, the size of both the room, bathroom and bed is alright. The bed is comfortable. Bidét is commonly used in Italy, and one might think this uses bathroomspace better used for something else, but I think this counts for all the hotels.
The breakfast buffet is served by a nice italian mama. The breakfast is included in the price and it is okey. It has different breads, boiled eggs, marmelade, youghurt, cereal, milk, juice and coffee.
The best thing about this hotel is definitely the location. It is 5 minutes from St. Marcus Square and it is located on the "right side", meaning it's not placed along the Grand Canal but in the smaller more cosy canals. This is also the area where you wanna do the gondoltour. It's nice and intimate. The hotel is absolutely affordable given the location.
I would recommend it anytime and I'd say it is value for money. But don't expect to arrive at a luxury hotel.
