This place is so charming, great value for what you pay. We emailed the hotel directly and requested a corner room on the third floor for the best views. Gondoleros and water taxis go by all day but nights are quiet so no trouble sleeping. Beautiful marble floors, exposed wood beams above and friendly staff. Breakfast is simple but tasty, seating area is very welcoming, with windows that overlook busy canal. In the mornings it was fun to watch boats delivering produce, fuel, supplies, and more while we drank our coffee.
When trying to find the hotel, it can be a little tricky to find, if you're taking a water taxi or vaporetto from train station, go to St Mark's Square, walk underneath clock and make your first right. then walk down a few steps past little shops and restaurants make left cross the tiny ponte del angelo and there it is. Hotel also has quick access to Rialto bridge area...
All in all I would definitely recommend this hotel to all. Just try to email the hotel beforehand so you can request a room with a good view.
