We stayed 3 nights in room 23 which is a corner junior suite overlooking the small canal at the rear of the hotel. The room itself is large with twin aspect windows and a large very comfortable double bed. The airconditioning worked well and it was quite hot at the time of our visit. There is a small entrance passage between the room and the bathroom which contains the wardeobe and cupboards with safe. This leads to the bathroom which has a shower but no bath. The bathroom is long and thin, so quite cramped for two people to use at the same time, but this was the only slight problem with this room. Is it really a junior suite, or just a large room? We weren't worried - it was a nice place to be and, by Venice standards, a reasonable price. The main positives about the hotel are that it is has a quiet location, but is just a few steps from Strade Nuove, the main shopping drag in this part of the city, and a few more from the Ca D'Oro museum and Vaporetto stop. It's in, but near the southern boundary of, the less fashionable Cannareggio part of town, but given the proximity of good shops, restaurants and transport, this is an advantage as it is relaxed and peaceful. Also, the hotel has a lovely green garden where you can have the excellent buffet breakfast or relax at other times of the day - a major point in our choice of this hotel and one we really appreciated. The owners and staff are delightful and very helpful in advising on all arrangements. Like other reviewers, we used the private taxi motor boat service for getting to and from the airport, which does indeed cost 110 Euros, but worth every penny/cent if you have a lot of luggage. Otherwise, it would be easy to walk from the Ca D'Oro vaporetto stop in about 4 minutes. Overall: a fantastic place to stay in Venice. do try the Vecia Cavana restaurant nearby for truly lovely food (cakes and puddings particularly) and exellent old-fashioned friendly service.
