We stayed as part of a tour group so had no choice. Upon arriving we were greeted warmly and went to our compact room. The room was neat and tidy and clean. As we had arrived late we wanted to get our gear into the safe and go to bed, but we set the safe off twice with the alarm ringing. Upon telling the management that we couldn't use it as it was locked upon our arrival, they gave us a story about how the guy who was installing them was new and there was nothing they could do - clearly they couldn't be bothered walking upstairs and unlocking it with the key. As we attempted to sleep all of our neighbours could be heard, either in their rooms or moving about outside, as the walls were paper thin. The mattress was not to my liking (I could feel the springs) but others didn't mind it, it was rather firm too. The pillow was quite flat and again wasn't to everyone's liking. However, it didn't stop me sleeping after our hiking around Venice. The bathroom was very small, my husband struggled to fit in the cubicle. But again it was very clean.
The train station to Venice is super close and there is a bus stop almost directly outside. You cannot walk to Venice (we tried, and failed -The footpath runs out). So accessibility to the islands is not an issue, it does make for a longer day though as you cant nip back to your room if it gets cold and you always needs to factor in the travel there and back with a multitude of people. However, because the hotel is not in Venice the prices at food places surrounding the hotel were much better.
The breakfast was included; it had very sugary juice, bad coffee, cereal, yoghurt, buns, jams, ham, croissants and cakes. It was adequate to get you through till lunch.
I'm completely torn as to whether I'd stay here again, erring on the side of not, due to the fact of not being in Venice itself more than anything else. If you don't mind traveling intent his could be the place for you.
