We (husband, myself and 11 year old) stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in December 2013, we had the best stay. Location was excellent. We arrived in Venice by train at night (delayed by 3 hours), i remembered the directions of the hotel pretty much ie via the main drag left of the train station but not over any bridges, unfortunately we didn't have a map but still managed to find the hotel. If you go over a bridge, you have gone to far. You need to turn left at the bottom of the first bridge - don't go over the bridge the thou. Shop keepers didn't seem to know street names or be of much help. It took us about 30 minutes to get to the hotel, once we know how to get to and from the hotel to train station, bus station, san marco we loved our location. We had to take a Ryan Air bus from bus station approx 5am in the morning and this walk was a beautiful last walk of Venice along the canal, then the Grand Canal and approx 15mins to the bus station. Paving was smooth so no issues with suitcases. Make sure when arriving you take a map showing the hotel and directions.
Location was really quiet, yet so close to the grand canal. There is even a small ferry stop across the canal from the hotel where you can catch a ferry down the Grand Canal and over the to Island Lido. There is a park not far from the hotel where the kids can play / people can stroll thru. The hotel was always clean, and staff friendly. Buffet breakfast was filling ie orange juice, hot chocolate, coffee, cold cuts, cheese, cereals, bread etc. We actually stayed in the apartment of the hotel and it very much suited our stay. Apartment was on street level with our own entrance, kitchenette, bedroom, lounge room tv in each room The hotel staff were always friendly, gave good tourist information, accomodated us on the last night when they were actaully closing for the xmas season. Wifi connection can only be obtained when in the hotel reception, however this is a nice area with some travel books - nice to hang out. Very much recommeded and pricing was really reasonable, especially for Venice.
