We booked this hotel on recommendation for its central location, reasonable price and good facilities. It did not disappoint. Our classic room, although small was definitely adequate and exceptionally clean, as was the bathroom. Our room looked out over the side of the hotel and we could see the little bridge over the canal. It was quiet and well placed for walking to all the sights, ie St Marks Square and was close to a vaporetto stop. Although not offering dinner there is a restaurant just near the front of the hotel and others just a short walk away. The breakfast is adequate and varied with the usual fruits, yohurts, meats and cheese, etc as well as scrambled egg and sausage all served buffet style until 10.45am.
The staff are very pleasant and helpful and only too happy to oblige with any request.
This was an all round good choice.
