We enjoyed our stay and were very pleased and happy to have booked here. Liked the old building which had "old world charm"; the reception desk is located one flight up, a nice feature given Venice's tendency to experience flooding. N.B. Be prepared to climb a couple of staircases to your room.
We (two people) were in room 13. As there was one extra (twin) bed, plus seemingly another folding bed stashed in the corner, this room presumably is used for up to four people. As a couple we were very comfortable in the room. Not sure how it would function as a quad, but I suppose parents with two small children would manage fine. We were surprised to read a prior reviewer's very negative comments about this room. We too have stayed in many hotels around the world and found this one to be very good, particularly in the context of a modestly-priced hotel.
Lovely staff and owners. Boots provided were a real plus as we had to contend with severe acqua alta conditions. (They have a limited number of boots, but we and a number of other guests were fortunate to receive some to borrow.)
If you're looking for a small hotel with owners who are very present and work hard to tend to their guests' needs, consider this pensione. If you're after a big, modern and flashy complex with four-star service, look elsewhere.
This hotel is housed in an old building. We liked the "character" and very much appreciated the thicker walls -- hate staying in rooms with thin walls where you can hear your neighbors.
Excellent location. Loved being near the Rialto market. Also very conveniently located to the Rialto Mercato vaporetto stop, and also only a short walk to Rialto Bridge.
