We chose this hotel because it was closest to the cruise port and on the recommendation of a friend. What a gem!! From the moment we checked in, the staff (Robert, Marta, Riccardo, Andrea and Gloria) were delightful. I had never stayed in this part of the city before having always stayed in the St. Mark's Square area. The university is nearby giving it a young, vibrant feel. There are tons of restaurants to choose from and beautiful streets and canals where one can just walk, admire and fall in love with the city. It is easy to pick up the vaporetto to take you anywhere in the city including the islands of Murano and Burano. The breakfast, which was included, was fabulous. Everyone speaks English which made things very easy for us. Just so you know - we were in room 107 which faced the gardens in the back. It was large, very quiet and perfect. I would not hesitate to stay here again on our next trip to Venice!!
