Before even arriving, we had good communication with the staff (Stefania and Ambra). They will give such good recommendations and advice. We arrived for a late check in at the main hotel. Both the main hotel and the annex building (where we stayed) are up a steep flight of stairs (no elevator).
We were escorted over by the night manager to the annex room. He knew very little English, but he taught us how to use the keys for the different doors. There was a central living room with sofas and a dining table just outside our room. In our room, there were two twins together to make a king and an extra twin. It was a spacious room with high ceilings. The bathroom was extremely small. The towels are very thin and not very absorbent and the soap and shampoo were in little rip-open packets.
It is an ideal location so close to Rialto bridge. Very close to water taxis, vaporetto, and walking to St. Mark's square was 10 minutes. There is no breakfast included, but we knew that before hand. There is a Coop grocery store (just ask where) about 5 minutes walk away (towards St. Mark's square) that opens from 8:30am to 8pm daily. Go there for cheaper drinks, water, and snacks. Also "Q food & more" is just around the corner for a great snack option- donuts!
The free wifi internet worked great! Caution, the A/C does not turn on until after June 1st. Our first night was very warm. It cooled off the second night. There is no scenery, but you are right in the middle of the action. Right next to the Disney store!
I would stay here again, when the A/C is turned on. Ciao!
