The hotel was clean and comfortable. The rooms were Italian decor with nice, roomy, modern bathroom. Elevator is small-1 person and suitcase or 2 people only at a time. Breakfast was wonderful, full selection of eggs, meats, cheeses, breads, fruit, cereal, yogurt as well as coffee and capuccino. What more could you want- with attentive service too! 2 complimentary proseccos upon checkin. My only disappointment was that I had no wifi service in my first room on the 4th floor, was moved to another room where it was very spotty and not sufficient to use my phone. Had to go down to the lobby to make a call, facetime home, or check email. And a little disappointed that the hotel told me there wifi was good throughout when I asked for a room on the first floor. The hotel's location was perect. Took the ATVO bus from Marco polo airport to piazelle roma for about 6 euros each, and from there, could see the hotel. 5 minute walk over 2 bridges, managed it with 1 suitcase and 1 carry bag each, but you'd want to pack light for venice. We also walked to the train station to grab out train to Romne, managed one additional bridge, "the glass bridge", which, thankfully had a few ramps (as well as stairs). But we managed. San Marco would be a bit of a walk, took a water taxi. Also a free shuttle to the Casino near the hotel. I would stay there again, but would request a room on the first floor because the wifi is important to me.
