the location was wakable from the San Marco vaparetto stop, but the walk is tough if you've got a lot of luggage. There are no lifts and the hallway to our room had us going up,down and all around. The English speaking staff was great. Friendly and very helpful. The hotel is undergoing necessary repairs. The room size was ample for a party of 3 with a view of a canal but it is showing signs of age. There are many cracks in the walls and ceiling. The bathroom had some mold and the shower/tub had a broken piece. Our biggest issue was the dirty pair of underwear we found on the floor behind a chair. I guess housekeeping doesn't do a very thorough job. Also, the in-room safe was small and could be picked up and carried away. We were hesitant to put our valuables in there but did anyway and had no problems.
I can see why it is only rated as a 2 star hotel.
