I have just returned from a 3 night stay at this hotel (27th - 30th April 2011) having booked a superior room.
Location - easy to find from the vaporetto stop (Ca d'oro'), near a small but lively square and very close to a calle with lots of shops and restaurants. There is also a supermarket less than 10 mins walk down the calle which is handy for buying bottles of water and snacks (and cheaper than buying in cafes). 5 minute walk to the Rialto and easy to get to S. Marco square. About 5 minute walk to the vaporetto that takes you to Burano & Murano.
Room - Very basic - double bed, wardrobe, dressing table, TV. We had room no.1 which also had a seperate single bed. There is a safe in the wardrobe, just ask at reception for a key for it. Beds were ok - we slept well. Yes, the double bed consisted of 2 singles with a double sheet over them but we didn't notice this until the second night and it didn't affect the sleep quality. A couple of negatives about this particular room: 1. the room was very dark but as we were on the ground floor facing a narrow calle this is to be expected. 2. The TV didn't work but who goes to Venice to watch tv anyway?!
We booked the superior which basically means you get a bath as well as a shower. Bathroom was spacious and clean and seperated from the bedroom by a small area rather than the door opening onto the bedroom.
Breakfast - I disagree with the previous post about breakfast being over very early in the morning...breakfast was 8am - 10am every morning. Maybe the last reviewer was up and out before 8am? If you're not up to have breakfast before 10am in a place like Venice then shame on you!
Overall this is what I would expect from a 2* hotel having stayed in different accomodations in Italy previously (hostels up to 4*). Given the cost of staying in Venice the hotel was reasonable and staff friendly and attentive.
