We were very satisfied with this hotel. We stayed in a triple room during the Easter Holidays. The room was very good and the bathroom also.We were very comfortable.
The staff was very kind and welcoming. The breakfast was also good.
The best thing of all is the location: just a 5 minutes walk from Piazza San Marco and the atmosphere makes you feel you are in the heart of old Venice.
I definitely recommend this hotel to everyone with or without kids.

Me and my boyfriend we are used to stay in hostels and this time we gave ourself a special hotel in Venice. It was really nice, its really special the room. Just my boyfriend that asked for them to let a letter for me in the room as a gift and they didn't do that. Increible the localisation.

Room Tip: Try ti get the one with the view of the canal. it is not the best one but it is precious,

I found the staff friendly and available when we needed something. The rooms are just like they are in the photos. We stayed in a canal view room which had amazing views. The location was great. Right in the middle of the piazza and Rialto bridge. It was a bit difficult to find, so just look for narrow alleyways. We didn't have any complaints and our room was clean despite some other reviews saying they had problems. The breakfast was minimal so don't expect much, but Italian food is so delicious it suited us so we had lots of room in our stomachs! Really good price for the location.

Very close to the square and the main bridge. Room was large and clean. The bathroom could do with a deep clean and the breakfast can also be improved... Overall perfect place for a short stay at a very reasonable price!

Upon checkout we were asked if we could pay our bill in cash. We paid $500 in cash and the balance on another card. However when we got back to the US our initial credit card used to make reservation was charged full amount and not credited back. Thought we were being helpful and were being swindled! Have talked to management with no success and am turning it over to my bank and booking.com
BE WARNED- BEWARE
Someone on their staff obviously will try to rip you off!!

If you're simply looking for a bed for the night, this place will do. But the rooms were tired, fixtures and fittings in a poor state, and the bathroom terrible (no hot water, shower door not big enough to stop the water escaping, and it fell off anyway). There were clothes left in the wardrobe from a previous guest, suggesting that the rooms are not cleaned or checked very thoroughly. And towels were missing when we arrived - we had to ask for them.

Rather than adding to the charm of Venice, this detracted from it somewhat.

I was here on business but also brought my partner, and we were pretty disappointed. My employer only booked this place because Hotel Flora was full up. I will advise them to find somewhere else in future.

A really good hotel, good price, nice rooms, nice bathrooms, good breakfast, the owner seemed like a nice guy, he even gave us a small discount and asked for a review on TripAdvisor, so, here it is.
When i come back to Venice, i will stay here for sure.
