We purchased a two person room for our weekend trip, and the location was perfect... we just wish it was a bit more comfortable.
Getting there wasn't too bad, especially with the simple street numbering scheme used on the main island. Carrying luggage up and down bridges is a very humbling experience, so if you don't mind spending some coin, you can take a private water taxi right up to the back of the Foresteria Levi.
The room was small and the bed was forgettable, but at least the bathroom was spacious and clean. Continental breakfast included croissants, coffee, juice, and some small packs of Nutella for spreading (we took a few of those for the train ride to Tuscany), enough for a quick bite before you head to the piazzas and bridges. Wifi was spotty, but you have to expect that it in Italy. At least they have it.
The location is great, within easy walking distance of St. Mark's Square and The Accademia Bridge. There's also a few nice wine bars and restaurants for appertivo around the corner, so it definitely makes for a good touch point when crawling the area for a place to eat. Just beware of the tourist trap restaurants close to the main piazzas.
Would we stay again? Maybe, but I'd probably spend some more time exploring other options, even if it meant spending a bit more money. All in all, it's not a bad option for a night or two, just don't expect too much.
