We had three fantastic days stay here, the hotel is located in the Canareggio area of Venice approx 25 minutes walk from San Marco Square, this in fact is a plus as this location affords a quieter environment there are many great restaurants just a short stroll from the hotel. We stayed in a room with canal view the room was well sized immaculate the bathroom had both a separate shower and and a bath with shower. The bath though may be a problem for those with limited mobility as it is high and the edging is wide. The breakfast is excellent with a very good choice of hot food the pork sausages are just superb as is the bacon . The selection of cold food and cereals is also very good. If you are arriving via vaporetta water boat from the Santa Lucia rail station catch the vaporetta that goes to Tre Archi get off at that stop and you will only have 20 metres to walk to the hotel. For other times when you go into Venice from the hotel if you get off at the Guglie stop which is the stop before Tre Archi it is only a short and easy walk along the path to the hotel(recommend that you go to Tre Archi when you arrive with luggage much easier. The other tip is consider purchasing a vaporetta pass you can get 24 hour through to several day passes this is much cheaper than buying individual tickets, all you will need to do is validate you pass each time you get on the vaporetta. Water taxis are readily available but much more expensive for example from the rail station to the hotel they can ask 60 euros!
The staff at the front desk are very helpful and supply very good maps of Venice and give good tips for getting around or sightseeing. We really enjoyed our stay here and would book in here agin if we return to Venice.
