This hotel is great to find from the water us stop and round the corner from 2 great piazzas for eats n drinks. Right on a canal so very beautiful. We managed the quirky stairs fine. Breakfast was poor and the salami one morning tasted off to me. Room was dark and smelt musty. Just felt unclean- they should get rid of the heavy bed covers and go with plain white duvet covers plus rip up the carpets and put tiles down n it would transform the room . Air con ok just. Bathroom tiny and the very outdated hair dryer(tube style) was not very good and as it was in the bathroom and the bathroom was so tiny it was impossible to get ready the same time as my husband or son. Bathroom walls were black mouldy and the shower pressure was very poor .Room was small for 3 people, only had one chair and no drawers for clothes but we only had 2 nights there so managed x TV had CNN but it's placed in such a way in the room we all couldn't watch it at the same time !!! Wifi difficult to get onto but managed after multiple attempts at having to log on . Cleaners were smoking on our floor when cleaning the rooms so u could smell cigarette smoke which as non smokers we didn't appreciate( saw the cig
packets and lighter in the linen cupboard) . The best way over to San Marco was via Accademia Bridge so takes about 25 mins all in but some nice views and a water fountain on the way. Would love to stay again but only if the room is brought up to standard. Couldn't fault the guy on reception who sorted out the free water taxi to Murano tho it does drop u straight at a glass blowing factory and u can't get out if that of having the hard sell in the showroom after but it was nice of the hotel to offer that.
