It's in the heart of Venice, within walking distance of all the shops, main canal and St Mark's square (just 5 mins away). The central location is the main advantage. The room was quite tiny, barely enough for two and right next to the elevator - wasn't very well lit either. The main receptionist, an old, gregarious guy, is very friendly and helpful. I had an early flight out @ 6.30 am to the States and he made calls to some water taxis etc. to check what was available etc. Ended up switching to another hotel the night before to make it to my international flight out. For folks traveling back to the States, I would advise against staying anywhere in central Venice, since very few water taxis etc available at an early hour. This is not a negative on this hotel particularly, but a general tip.
The hotel also had free internet and a decent breakfast buffet. Would recommend this for those on a budget, yet wanting a central location.
