We flew in early on a monday morning for a 3 night stay and decided to take the alilaguna waterbus to saint marcos square to get to the hotel as the hotel had recommended. The only problem was that the directions given by the hotel was confusing and it was hard to find.
We we finally found the hotel, the staff there was very nice. Even though it was early, they allowed us to check in early and took us up to the room. The room was very clean and had all the necessities.
The Breakfast was simple with some pastries and meats, but very nice and filling for a day of exploring.
A little noisy at night from the nearby opera, but it was nice to hear the opera from the room and it usually ended early enough to get to sleep at a normal time.
The main problem I had with the hotel was that once checkin is over around 2 to 3, there seems to be no other staff in the building to ask questions or help if there are any problems. As we were traveling internationally we didn't have an Italian phone yet to call for help. Thankfully we really didn't have any problems but it would have been nice to have someone ,even in the early afternoon, to ask for directions, restaurant recommendations, or supermarkets or such.
Also the internet is only free for 1 hour so if you need it, make sure you conserve it.
Overall great stay and great location for the price!
