The hotel is in an excellent location, especially if you take the number 5 bus from Marco Polo. It's a stones throw from where the bus drops you off but you don't feel like you are in the vicinity of a bus depot. You're right on a canal. Breakfast was good typical continental but lots of options too. Good coffee. Rooms were a little dated but I think the majority of hotels are like this in Venice. Rising damp and all that.
My request for a garden room was acknowledged but never materialised. We asked for a street map of Venice that I just saw the man at the desk hand out to another customer, to which he responded, " I'm not the tourist information you know." I would argue that hotel receptions do act in part, as tourist information for their paying customers. He did how ever, with a bit of grump, give us a map. So all in all, the hotel gets and OK. Not bad value in a very good location for a base for 2 or 3 days in Venice.
