I have had to laugh at some reviews for this hotel (I would maybe class it more like a hostel really).
This is just about the cheapest place to stay on the island and some people seem to expect 5 stars! What you get for the price is good sized bedrooms, ok you have to share a bathroom with a couple of other rooms, but rather that than have small bedrooms!
Awesome air con in our room(it was 44°C outside when we stayed and we had to turn the air con off as we woke up freezing cold with it on.
Location is brilliant, especially if you are driving. Just 150 metres from main car parks and about 200 metres from Main waterbus (Vaporetto) stop and ticket office (there is a vaporetto stop right outside the hotel which only goes to certain stops so we just used the main one as there is a large supermarket on the way to get cheap food/drink.
The main thing with this hotel was the fact it was a monastry and there has been minimal interference with the original building. We had a roam around the place and found the conference/meeting rooms with stunning original ceilings.
We stayed for 3nights and saw several different members of staff, only one didnt speak great english, but how many english hotel staff can speak Italian?
And all the staff were excellent.
We will definately stay here again on our next trip to Venice. And recommend it as long as you arent looking for a luxury spa hotel!!
