I was really pleasantly surprised by this hotel. It is 3 stars, but premises, rooms, staff and breakfast is going towards 4!
We had a lovely spacious room, with air conditioning, very clean, bathroom like brand new, room cleaned and towels changed every day. Has a mini bar with very reasonable prices for both soft and alcoholic drinks! Room is a bit on a darker side, but you don't come to Venice to stay in a hotel room, so who cares! (The are bedside lamps for reading and lighting is great in bathroom if you need to do makeup). Also, bed on a bit harder side (for me) but my friend was absolutely fine with it so really a personal preference! But rooms are very quiet as area is not too noisy.
Breakfast in the hotel is great as well, as good coffee is available, as well as good continental breakfast. Ladies in the breakfast room very attentive and friendly. My friend was ill so they got her plenty of tea and honey - very sweet!
Receptionists were all polite, friendly and helpful. When there was a little of flood happening, they even arranged some bin bags to put over our shoes so they don't get wet straight away! Also, trip to Murano island and glass factory is available for free from reception - just ask on the day! Even tho our room was accessible through back door and receptionist had to come wit us every time to open it in the evening, that is not an issue at all, because you need to pass through the main reception anyway on your way to the back door, so really - not an issue!
Location of the hotel is great as well. It is 15-20 minutes walk from St Marco square, but a walk in a beautiful Venice is a pleasure (even in the rain and flood - adventure!) :) There are also a couple of waterbus stops just 2-3 min walk away, so very easy to get to any part of Venice. It is about 30 min by water bus (lines 5.1 or 5.2) away from train station or Troncetto where Eurolines bus from Treviso airport stops (line 1 will take longer as locals call it 'tourists' line). #TIP - if you are under 30 years-old, get a young person's card for 4 euros, then 72 hours waterbus pass will cost only 18 euros instead of 35! Other discounts available with the pass as well.
Also, hotel is in a higher part of the city, so flood doesn't get so high there :)
In overall, hotel is of a great standard and would definitely recommend it to someone who is going to Venice!
