We chose this hotel for our 25th wedding anniversary trip to Venice after much deliberation (checking out tripadvisor's comments etc) and were not not disappointed.
To start with, the location is excellent, being close, but not too close, to the main hub Piazzale Roma (which saves lugging cases too far when you arrive around midnight after everything has shut!), on a canal (not all hotels are!) and not too busy but within easy reach of most tourist 'attractions' (nowhere is that far in Venice, so long as you don't get lost too many times en route!).
The building itself is a good blend of the old, together with reasonably modern bedrooms + en-suite shower room/wc, both of which were cleaned to a good standard (we had 107 overlooking the garden, but you can upgrade further to canal view at the front).
Breakfast was standard 'continental' fare, but nice and fresh, although I couldn't figure our why pans of hot scrambled eggs and bacon were put out on our first morning, but not on the following two!
When it came to checking out, there was no problem leaving our cases in a locked room and when we came back later in the day, the receptionist retrieved them and pointed out the toilet we could use to freshen up prior to leaving.
All in all we would definitely recommend this hotel.
