My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights from 6th May. For a start, Venice can be a most confusing city and as this was our first visit we had trouble finding the hotel. Once found however we were made to feel welcome and shown our room. The frescoes on the wall were a bit offputting but it was clean and the bathroom was also. The shower recess was bigger than most we had encountered. The breakfast next morning was adequate - cereals, rolls, fruit, conserves, yoghurt, toast (packaged), juice, tea and coffee. It is in a very good location as far as San Marco and Rialto and also the vaparetto to Murano are concerned. Also some good restaurants not too far away. Why I think it would be better for younger travellers is that it appears to cater for school groups and while the first group of older teenagers was very well behaved, the second group of much younger teenagers was not and became very noisy early in the morning (4.30am). The upside is that you do save a bit of money by not staying in a regular hotel and if you are prepared to tolerate school groups by all means stay there.
