“Good location in Venice”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

This is Venice, so expect to walk to your hotel and don't expect a lot of fancy stuff and you'll be good to go. Nice quiet hotel central in Venice - close to many sites and restaurants. The rooms are well maintained and the bed is above average. Nice breakfast, but the dining room is small - remember this is Venice. The hotel team was super friendly and provided a lot of help. Only issue is that there is no elevator - again this is Venice. We would be happy to stay there again.

Room Tip: Most rooms are quiet.

Really great location 5 mins to Rialo and 8 to San Marco in a small square. Lovely staff. Breakfast is good and the shared bathroom is clean. Shower is pretty small so if your a big person its a tight squeeze. We had a small room which was clean and suitable to our needs. Would recommend

Great STAFF - nice, friendly, willing to help ... and great location - the heart of the city!

I would recommend. Although some of the rooms are so small that putting step through the door at once you are in bed ... ;)

The hotel is all about location. Very near to San Marco and Rialto. Hence you can practically reach everywhere in Venice easily by taking vaperatos. Reaching the place is simple enough for us. We took Alilaguna straight to Rialto. From there, it was just a 10-15 mins walk (difficulty level: medium).
The hotel itself is OK. It's a small hotel with even smaller room with smallest shower room we ever encountered. Water pressure was quite slow but not too bad. Breakfast was fine but after 2 days, we got tired of the same thing. The staffs are really friendly and courteous, stark contrast to those working in restaurants and cafes.

This place is in a great location for getting around Venice - in between the Rialto and Piazza San Marco. The rooms are small, with barely enough room to navigate around the bed, but I imagine that's normal in Venice. The water pressure in the hotel made for the worst shower experience I've ever had. If someone else is using the hot water, the temperature becomes very cold, and it seems as though whenever anyone flushes a toilet in the entire hotel, the water becomes scalding, except of course if someone else is already using the hot water, then water stops flowing out of the shower head altogether. This made the total shower time about a factor of 3 greater, on average, because I had to stand there waiting for the water temperature to return to normal.

The breakfasts were fine. Canned pears and pineapples, small highly processed cups of yogurt, OK pastries and coffee from a machine.

Members of the hotel staff were friendly, but it's annoying the amount of paperwork one needs to sign off on when first arriving. I've been other places where a similar number of signatures were needed, but they didn't demand you do so before checking into your room.

They have air conditioning, which is great. The only annoying thing about it is that there are no controls for it in the room. One needs to call the front desk and ask them to turn it on or off.
