We stayed here from May 6 to May 9, 2014 - Room #203. Having never been to Venice, Italy, this hotel was hard to find but once we did, we found it to be in the best location. The hotel is visible from the parking lot at the Piazzale Roma which is one of the main stops along the Grand Canal. Marta is incredibly helpful and was able to direct us to great restaurants, which vaporetto to take and which places to avoid. Every hotel should have a Marta! Breakfast is included in the price of the room and this hotel offers a wide range of breakfast items to choose from. The rooms are tastefully decorated, the shower is barely big enough to turn around in but we managed to get the job done. There is no pool or restaurant located within the hotel. The elevator is TINY. It says it can hold 3 persons but I believe that would be a very tight fit. The room rate was $330 USD per night but all of Venice is pricey. All of the staff that we interacted with were incredibly helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Venice.
