I have been meaning to get round to posting a review of this hotel since staying there with my wife & daughter in September last year (a large triple room). I have to admit when my wife booked the hotel, I was concerned it was several vaporetto stops from the centre of Venice BUT it was such a lovely location - a real 'local' feel that I would never have expected staying in such a major tourist city. One only has to walk a few minutes to a vaporetto stop... then there's a lovely 10-15 minute waterbus ride into town (journey time obviously depends on where you are visiting in the centre) - it's all so Venetian! And of course it's incredibly convenient for the Biennale site which is no more than a 10 minute walk. Just carry on walking another 15 minutes from the Biennale site and you're at St. Mark's. The area around the hotel is good to wander around but has limited restaurants (which we didn't try) - the local church is worth a visit. The hotel itself is clean, modern (within it's original convent walls) and efficient. I believe the standard of the guest room and general interior (and cleanliness) is very high for the rate paid. There were a few problems with the internet connection - which was irritating, but the staff handled this well - hopefully the connection will improve in time. Breakfast was extremely good with an extensive buffet selection - we did not try the restaurant for lunch or dinner. Oh ... and it was quiet at night - no street noise to disturb you. All-in-all a great hotel if you're happy to stay away from central Venice (although don't get me wrong - the centre is really not far away). Very good value. Highly recommended.
