We stayed here for 3 nights last week. This is a wonderful little hotel. The room we stayed in was fantastic (we got the cheapest available double) and although there was no view (we weren't expecting one) it was large, very clean and stylish with a huge comfy bed and aircon. The bathroom was also very clean with a huge shower. We were in the room next to reception so were a bit worried about noise but we barely heard a sound and slept in every morning!
The staff were extremely polite, friendly and very helpful both before our stay via email correspondence and face to face during our visit. They were also flexible with check in and out arrangements and luggage storage which suited our flight times.
The free Wifi in our room and hotel was a bonus and was a very welcome extra that the hotel offers.
Breakfast was delicious with a variety of choices to suit all tastes. The breakfast room and bar/lounge area are beautiful and a great place to relax.
Location wise the hotel is perfectly situated in my opinion. Away from the more touristy areas but not too far to walk to them plus also the Ferrovia and Piazzale Roma were only a short walk even with luggage. There is also a very convenient vaporetta stop Guglie about 2 mins away which also has boats directly to Marco Polo airport (took us 30 mins).
There is a fantastic coffee shop about 3 doors away which does amazing coffees, an abundance of fresh fruit stalls outside the hotel, plenty of cafes and restaurants, a small supermarket and a delicious gelateria all within a minute or so's walk. The street the hotel is situated on is mainly populated by locals and not too touristy. Venture a couple of streets back away from the grand canal and it's almost as if you have Venice and all its beautiful canals and streets to yourself.
Overall, a fantastic little hotel. I'm often sceptical about reviews on Trip Advisor but this place is definitely worthy of its high rating. We would definitely return here again if we come back to Venice in the future.
