Stayed here with my partner for 5 nights and highly enjoyed our stay.
The biggest asset has to be the staff - everyone of them. Reception staff, cleaners, kitchen lady - everyone is very friendly and more than willing to assist. One staff member (reception) in particular spoke multiple languages fluently and switched from one to the other seamlessly. Everyone greeted us with a smile, always taking note of you, welcoming you back etc. etc. I can't speak highly enough of the staff. Price - we got a very good deal via www.booking.com. Location is great, in the middle of the city and 10-15 minutes walking distance to St Marco's Square. Rialto bridge & water stop is a 5 minutes walk. The rooms have been renovated, are spacious, have an air-conditioner (centrally operated so ask reception if you want it switched on/off), safe, good storage and something I have never before encountered: a universal charging station! Multiple cables connected to a central unit on your desk - iPhone, mini-usb, photo camera - it's fantastic. There is a pier and you can take a gondola straight in front of the hotel or get dropped off when you take one at another location. The breakfast is good & sufficient but could do with a bit more variety (eggs/omelet or some simple beans would be nice for the proteins and to add something warm). Only 'minus' would be the shower. Erratic water pressure so that you have to tweak the temperature frequently. However, would highly recommend this hotel to others and would stay here again myself.
