My husband and I stayed here last month and had a nice time. It can get slightly tricky to find the place but if you have a map in your phone then you should be good to go. Do ask a couple of shopkeepers on your way to confirm the location. We reached the hotel in the evening and found a note on the main door with directions to go to the adjoining property. It was slightly inconvenient as we had traveled for about 12 hrs. We went to their other property Ca Malipiero and rang the bell. No one answered the door for the first 5 mins and then the door opened mysteriously. There was no one at the front desk and we kept calling out for someone with no response. Some guests staying there mentioned that the reception was on the top floor. Do keep in mind that they don't have elevators.
The front desk person was nice but could have been a little more warm. We explained us everything about breakfast, internet connection etc. The room was large, nice and cozy and good for the price. The bed was well done and clean. The bathroom was good sized and the shower had great pressure. Every time we flushed there was loud sound of the water getting pumped back in but it wasn't too bad as we closed the bathroom door. We are vegetarians and found the breakfast selection to be limited. It was not bad though, enough to keep us going until lunch. The lady who served breakfast was very sweet and extremely hard working. Maybe they can have some fresh fruits as well. The internet worked great just that they don't have wifi. So you can use it only if you have a laptop.
The location is excellent, easy accessibility to vaporetti, restaurants and gelato places. There is a palace next door, happens only in Italy! Do try this place if you are not fussy about amenities.
