I stayed in Vecellio once. My band was on a tour throughout Veneto and we had a magnificent performance in Venice that night. The concert ended late, so we were really tired.
Rooms themselves were extremely cozy but also stylish (Venetian baroque), with a fine firm bed to sleep. The location is both convenient and sacral, overlooking the San Michele island.
About the staff - all the Venetians that i spoke with told me that Matteo (the owner) is "one of the best people you will ever meet", and getting to know him personally just confirmed what I already heard. He is super-helpful when it comes to tips on how to manage your time and money in the city that he practically "owns". He is one of those people who will give you his time, effort and share the wisdom about this outstanding city - from where to eat, to what to visit. Matteo's lovely wife Beatta is also a great host and a breathe of fresh air to the whole thing.
A wonderful little hotel that worth whole lot more than money spent.
Once in a lifetime experience.
