My wife and I stayed here from Sunday April 13th through Saturday April 19, 2014. We arrived in Venice via water taxi and got off the Todaro stop. The walk to the hotel is 5 minutes under the clock tower and make a right turn. Previous to our arrival all emails were promptly answered. We were immediately shown to our room by the bellman. Upon inspection of the room the mini fridge did not work - it was repaired but 2 days later did not work again. The remote did not work and was not replaced during our stay. The tv is a monitor only so to change channels we had to use the satellite box. There were only 2 english channels - BBC1 and CNN. CNN did not work half the time. The internet is practically non-existent (it is free). I successfully connected 3 times for the week and even then I was bounced off. Could not get a solid connection anywhere inside hotel (weak signal and too many users). Glad I had my 4G phone. The room is dated, what some might call "distressed" in its appearance. The walls are covered in a material - not really a wallpaper but more like a 'slip cover' you would see on furniture. All the sockets are the 3 pin type. The room was meticulously clean. There are no screens on the windows so they had to remain bolted shut to keep the quarter size mosquitoes out. By Wednesday the room became an oven, there is no A/C this time of year only heat so we couldn't even get air to circulate. The bed was a king size with a firm mattress. The bathroom was a shower and a nice sized one. By Tuesday the water in shower would not go down the drain and it was promptly fixed. But water constantly leaked under the door onto the floor. Housekeeping was very good and friendly. The staff in general was excellent. But the older staff members were less friendly - stiff and formal- and we quickly learned to avoid them when possible. Breakfast was included in the room rate. There was sausage, eggs, bacon, mushrooms fresh each day. Also cold cuts, breads, and cereals. Coffees, teas, and waters. There is no information center where you could look at and collect brochures. The Hotel does have the customary tourist map. A tabachi, farmacia, and markets are all near by. As well as 2 cashpoints (ATMs), plenty of shops, and great restaurants. We had the Piazza view room and it was definently worth it (at the Facebook pre-paid rate). The bells every hour added to the experience and noise was never a concern. This is a solid 3.5 star hotel that is run efficiently. We would definitely recommend for the first time visitor.
