We stayed here for 3 nights in early February. The hotel is in a quite superb location, not just because it is only 150 metres along the waterfront from St Marks Square, but also because of the ease of accessibility from Venice Airport. Just get the Alilaguna Blue Line boat from the Airport which runs every 30 mins (15 Euros) and stops right in front of the hotel at the San Zaccaria stop.
We booked through a consolidator at a very good rate, especially for Venice, of £80 per night incl city taxes. A warm greeting on arrival along with tourist information. Having arrived around midday, the hotel stored our bags until the room was ready. The room was compact but well appointed and with a king size comfortable bed. Given that we were in Venice, we were not intending to spend too much time in the hotel. Housekeeping was to a high standard and there was even a turn down service.
Breakfast was adequate, but nothing special.
We left Venice by train and got to the railway station by catching the water bus (Vaporetti) - the number 1 service stops outside the hotel and takes 45 mins to get to the station by traversing the length of the Grand Canal - what a way to leave.
Would we go back - yes, because of the location, although we might go for a larger room on the waterfront. We would also hope for better weather next time. Less rain ...... and lower tides, which did see water encroaching into St Marks Square.
