Booked this place from a Groupon deal and read all the good and bad reviews. So took it all with a grain of salt and came with no high expectations. When we arrived into the room, I understood where the bad reviews came from. It was old and the shower is very small. But to be honest, it was fine. Venice is old and there is not a lot of space so if there is a complaint about size and how old it is, then I suggest to throw down more money and book a room at the 5 star Danieli Hotel. The sheets and towels were clean. Housekeeping came every day. Soap and shampoo was provided. The decor was vintage old Venice- just like the pictures. It was cute and quaint, the old part is what it is. Yes, the bathroom might look dingy with the caulk needing to be improved, but all in all, it was clean. Didn't give me a huge ick factor, and I'm big on clean so this part worried me before my trip...but it was okay. The floors/walls are thin and I did hear people outside the room at about 4am. That didn't bother me much..it was the pigeons outside the room that were the loudest and woke me up every crack of dawn. Breakfast was average- Croissants, ham, cheese, yogurts, milk, juice. The cheap stuff. But very thankful for the fresh apples, muesli, and the coffee machine.
Wifi was good. Have to sign in with a code and password every time you go back to the room. Service was average. Not very friendly so don't expect warm smiles and greetings. Staff was there just to do their jobs, nothing more. Disappointing because you expect a nice feeling from the hospitality industry.
Last but not least, the LOCATION. AMAZING and PERFECT. It's right outside the Rialto Bridge and upon arriving, just ask a shop nearby where the hotel is and they will point you to the right direction. It's very easy to find. It's RIGHT NEXT to the Rialto Bridge, that itself is worth staying at this hotel. It's next to all the main sights and in the night time, so easy to get back. Especially if having drinks across the bridge at all the bars in that one square. Or if eating along the grand canal.
Couldn't get the radiator for the heat to work. The mini fridge was broken. Shower pressure was good.
