We visted Venice in November 2010 and stayed at the hotel for two nights. The location was great as it was only a 3 minute walk from the Piazzale Roma (main bus terminal) and all the main touristy places were within 20 mins walking distance. I say 20 minutes but given all the small winding paths your journey may take longer if you get lost!! You only have to go over 1 bridge to get to the hotel from the Piazzale Roma so there is no issue with having to drag all your bags up and down lots of stairs.
The rooms themselves were a good size and certainly had a traditional Venetian theme to them. The hotel had recently been refurbished and was to a good standard. The bathroom was clean and had a good power shower with bedding and towels being replaced everyday.
The only draw back I would say about the room was that it was advertised as having Saterlite Tv. This however just means the only channel in English is CNN. I know its not a deal breaker but it is a nice option to have a TV to watch if the weather is bad and your confined to the room.
Breakfast was very basic, coffee/tea, a coissant and a couple of bread rolls and that was it.
The staff were friendly and spoke quite good English and made a few suggestions of what we could do since the weather was so bad!
All in all a good hotel for the price we paid (111 euro for 2 nights). If you're just looking for a base to drop your things off and explore Venice then this would be a great place to stop and I would recommend the hotel to others.
