This is the second time we stayed at his hotel and we quite like it. It has a lot of character with antiques in the hallways. It is a small hotel, covering 3 or 4 floors (with no elevator) but with a limted numeer of rooms on each floor. The WiFi typically only works from the reception area, which is really just a couple of chairs in a wide hallway. We were lucky that it worked from our room (room 12 - for 4 people) . The daytime reception staff is extremely pleasant and knowledgable about the city and transportation, etc. however the night guy needs to learn to be a little happier. Not that he was surly, he just wasn't a guy you would talk to more than you needed to.
The big bounses about this hotel are: 1) They can accomodate 4 or sometimes even 5 people in one room; 2) the location is about two blocks away from the Rialto Bridge and it is a bit quieter than places around the Bridge or St. Mark's Square; and 3) Venice is extremely expensive and while this is still expensive for what you get, it is inexpensive by Venice standards.
There are a couple of bars in the square around the corner from the hotel, one of which sets out tables and has an outdoor facing TV which was great during the World Cup. Lots of people milling around and watching the games while having a Spritz.
