Hotel Pausania is a great hotel in Venice! If life ever takes me back to Venice, I would definitely stay again. The Hotel is in a great location. Not too touristy, but not quiet either. It is right along the canal. It is a really cool hotel in that it makes you feel like you are staying where wealthy Veneitians once slept. If you are lucky enough to be on the second floor in the front of the building, that is the neatest place to be. You're steps from the square where there's a lot of nightlife at the cafes and only a 20 minute or so walk to St. Marks (it really is best to be away from all the tourists there). Also, while we were there, the area around St. Marks had flooded, slightly, but Dorsoduro, the area where Hotel Pausania is situated, was dry. There are fruit and vegetable vendors that are outside along the canal in the morning, so be sure to get some fruit for a snack while you stroll around Venice (you won't need any for breakfast, because a WONDERFUL breakfast spread is included!). Definitely consider this hotel if you find yourself traveling to Venice.
