Good quality hotel with recently refurbished rooms. Good facilities, and well located both for walking around Venice and for transport - it's near the train station, PIzzale Roma, and the bus station/taxi rank.
Breakfast is acceptable (if uninspiring) - and served quite late......The bar service can be a little slow if there are lots of check-ins as the porter is also the barman.
The staff are friendly and provide good service - in particular Robert the Welsh Italian, who has quite a sense of humour.....
If you are looking for a sensible budget option located on Venice proper, you can't go far wrong with this option - in particular it's location means that you don't have to drag your bags around the streets of Venice.....
