I stayed at the Amadeus on a group tour. We were supposed to stay at another hotel on the Grand Canal and were switched to the Amadeus at the last minute.
The hotel has two different sections with two different elevators and stairs. The majority of my group stayed in the front section and complained of noise coming from the street. Other than that they seemed fairly content with their rooms.
My room, however, was in the back section of the hotel. It was a single room, and true to my experience in European hotels, it was pretty small but functional. There was no safe and a very small closet. The bed was an acceptably comfortable twin.
The bathroom, and more specifically, the shower were what made the stay less than pleasant.
The shower had two heads - one the typical handheld European type head and the other fixed to the wall above the shower's head. I attempted to use just the fixed head, but there was no way to get anything but frigid water from this head when it was the only one on. So, I was forced to turn on the hand-held shower head. This allowed hot water to flow through both heads. Unfortunately, the hand-held head sprayed water horizontally getting water all over the bathroom. The temperature of the water was also very difficult to adjust with a response time lag making it common to scald yourself.
There was free wi-fi with a code from the front desk.
The buffet breakfast was pretty good, and the staff were friendly and spoke very good English.
The location was ok - about a 20-30 minute walk to St. Mark's Square.
Mostly due to the shower issues, I would not choose this hotel again.
