We chose this hotel based upon the location. It is located a 5 minute walk from the train station which saves you from a long walk over many bridges and cobbled streets with bags, the expense of a water taxi or hassle of a vaporetto. The hotel is 20 - 30 minutes from the Rialto Bridge and Piazza St. Marco. So it is close enough to both with the additional benefit of being away from the tourist frenzy. Although we did our booking online they had a couple rooms available and gave us the option to upgrade to better rooms. All of the rooms are bigger than the norm in Europe. Ours offered a partial view of the Grand Canal and had a very nice bathroom with a tub. It was very comfortable. The breakfast was good and the staff was very helpful. They were happy to make reservations and give us tips. We would definitely stay here again.
