The only good thing about this hotel is it's location (situated only a few meters from St. Mark's Square) however, dont let this make you stay there. The single room I stayed in was tiny and the bed (or should I say concete slab) was just about big enough for me (I'm only 5'6" so God help anyone who is tall or on the heavy -side). The hotel bar is awful and pricey although Venice is expensive anyway. During the day the lobby and waiting area, which are both tiny, are crammed with luggage which you have to negotiate passed to get to the lift which just about big enough for you and one case. I didnt find the staff in the slightest bit friendly. I had to charge my phone in the reception as the sockets in the room did not take the european adapter which I brought (it worked everywhere else I used it). The screen on my iphone is bigger than the 1970's TV screen in the room (slight exaggeration but you know what I mean). Asking the staff for directions was an ordeal in itself and also there are no tourist leaflets, information, maps etc in the reception which I would have thought was a must for any hotel. It pains me to even type about this hotel as I just want to forget I ever stayed there. I would rather have slept on a bench than spend another night there. Oh yeah, the mobile phone signal was non existent inside the hotel for the majority of my stay so I had to spend most of my time out of the hotel which suited me just fine. I had an early start when I was leaving and requested an alarm call which never came and I realised why when I got down to the reception as the guy behind the desk was fast asleep. Having said all of the above I do have to say that the hotel is spotless clean but thats all I can say for it.
