This hotel exceeded my expectations of a 2 star hotel.
The location was really good - a couple of minutes from the Rialto, 10 minutes from St Marks Sq and 10 minutes from the Fundamento Nove vaporetto stop for Murano.
The room (no 108) wasn't large but was big enough for a 3 night stay, was spotlessly clean and had all we required. However, please note that if you have an Iphone 5, the "charging station" doesn't have a charger for that so don't make the mistake I did and not take your own charger. The bathroom was small but again was very clean so no problem there.
The breakfast was good with everything you would expect - the apricot croissants were extremely good - enough to set you up for the day. Although the breakfast room was very small we never had a problem getting a table.
The staff (especially Sara) were welcoming, friendly and helpful and spoke good English.
I would return to this hotel with no hesitation.
