My husband and I stayed here in mid-May. The hotel isn't fancy, but it is clean as a whistle. I was surprised how spacious our room was. It even had a balcony.
The family running the place is very nice and extremely helpful with advice. The wifi was terrific. We stayed at a more upscale hotel a few days later outside Venice and Leopolda's free wifi beat the service there (not free except in public areas) by a mile.
If you don't mind a bit of a walk, the city center is 15-20 minutes away. If you do, there's a bus you can hop on a few steps away from the hotel. A nice variety of restaurants within a 10-minute walk as well.
I've stayed in budget hotels in other European cities that cost more and offered far less. Would definitely recommend this one to travels who don't want to splurge on lodgings.
