This hotel was recommended to me, so along with the reviews on here, I had no hesitation in booking it for me and my sister and we stayed there for four nights, having returned yesterday. Yes, it is a stone’s throw from St Mark’s Square, so a great location. Yes, the owners are helpful and friendly and yes, it is clean. But at €200 a night I was disappointed. My room was small and dark, I felt claustrophobic. The pillows were rock hard and there was not a suitcase rack (my sister’s room was larger and did have one). There was a ‘fridge and safe; there was not a hospitality tray, with kettle and tea/coffee, nor a complimentary bottle of mineral water (which seems to be pretty standard these days). The shower head needed de-scaling so the water sprayed everywhere. There was no shelf in the bathroom to put toiletries.
Breakfast was basic. As we were leaving at 07.30 in the morning we told them the night before we would be in for breakfast at 07.00am and my sister asked for an early morning alarm call. She did not get the call and the breakfast room was empty, nothing set up at all and nobody around, so we left without the breakfast we had paid for the previous evening when we settled the bill.
For us, the hotel was ok, nothing special and we don’t think it offered value for money.
