Hotel is in a very old building and convenient to the busy Piazza Roma. Once you cross the bridges at the piazza, the area is peacful and very safe feeling. Our room was small, but adequate and faced the canal so we could keep track of all types of traffic, even garbage and laundry boats below our window. Our room was clean and quiet. Pulling luggage over a couple of bridges was easy, but on the return to the airport bus on P. Roma, we opted for a porter, which the hotel arranged, to save our 70 year old backs. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good in the inside breakfast room, but we always used the garden, which was beautiful in May- be warned to guard your food from the birds, since we saw some plates attacked when left unattended. The garden was also a great place for happy hour in the evening. The location is great with an easy walk to the bridge leading to the train station across the grand canal. Next to the bridge, it is easy to catch the water bus, which was a lot of fun to ride to locations all overe Venice, or to islands in the lagoon. There is a good selection of food near the hotel, but not a crouded mob we found on streets closer to St. Marks. It was fun to walk the peacful canals in the neighborhood at any time of the day or evening. We took the hotel suggested free ride to Murano, but rode the water bus to other islands and to return, and probably would take the bus instead of the free ride. If we are lucky enough to return to venice, we would definately stay here again.
