Nice hotel, optimally situated near shopping. You can find a parking spot right below your window facing the canal. Very friendly and efficient staff. Now for the negatives...your room is a loft and your bathroom and bed are upstairs. The stairs are more ladder than they are stairs. Bed was very good which is rare in Italy. There weren't too many other guests in the hotel and the breakfast nook was so so. The in hotel restaurant might be worth a try at night but it's more geared to Italian style (sweets and cakes) than international you would find internationally. If only Italian hoteliers would visit the far east more often. When we returned from dinner in the evening it was packed with locals which is always a good sign in Italy of good food. I am Italian and grew up in New York but I can tell you that for Italy this is a good hotel. They always spot themselves a star or two and this hotel is no exception to that rule. For the price and the cleanliness I will probably stay there again. The view of the river from the bed was fantastic but the window at the top of the glass doors leading to the balcony were obscured by many months of dirt. Saving grace...They had Fox News.
Walking distance to the Al Canale restaurant across the canal. Subject for another TripAdvisor but would get Excellent rating with very exceptional food.
