We stayed in the Hotel Centauro for 4 nights in a standard double room. We printed off the directional map from the hotels website prior to travelling and followed it very easily to the hotel from the Rialto Bridge. Situated in a very narrow but clean alley/street off a small square with a lion monument, it was out of the way of all the hustle and bustle of the main tourist routes, which was really nice as it gave you the chance to see a bit of the real Venice as apposed to the tourist bit. Very central to all the main attractions (Rialto Bridge, St Marks Square, Accadamia Bridge) All about 5 - 10 min walk away.
The breakfast was continental with a choice of croissants, fruit, yogurt, cereals, rolls and cold meats and cheese and a few little extras like biscuits and crackers, honey etc... plus coffee and tea. Very nice but personally I would have like some of the croissants to not have sugar on them. The breakfast room was very nice with views of a canal.
The room was very quaint all decorated in venetian style, the bathroom was a little on the small side but clean and functional. Sadly no tea of coffee facilities in the room itself but there is a mini bar that is reasonably priced. Beware if you want to leave anything on charge while you go out for a while. All the lights and power to the room goes off as soon as you take out the lights key that is attached to the room key.
The staff were very welcoming but you will have to carry your own bags to the room but we didn't mind this. There is no lift in the building. There is Wi-Fi at the hotel and this will cost you 1 euro for 1 hour.
We had a honeymoon offer upon booking which was a free bottle of bubbly in the room but this wasn't there on arrival and we had to ask for it.
All in all we have a very good experience at this hotel.
