“Best breakfast of our 2+ week trip”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

I would highly recommend this hotel - especially for the price that we paid. The location is a few minutes walk from St Mark's square, making it quite easy to use the inexpensive water taxis to get to and from the airport or train station - and other sites once you figure out how to use them.

The room was nice - we opted for a standard room with the upgrade that included coffee and tea service and complimentary Prosecco in the room so we didn't have a view of the canal but we didn't pay the price either. The only complaint is that the room was quite warm and we couldn't get it cool unless we opened the window - which means we also heard the noise - but it wasn't bad as we were on an alley way not a main walking street.

We found the staff to be super helpful and very pleasant.

We were pleasantly surprised with the breakfast. It was the only "hot" breakfast with scrambled eggs, sautéed veggies, tomatoes with mozzarella etc, etc on our 2+ week stay. It was constantly being refreshed by the staff as the hotel was full and we had breakfast at the rush hour time of 9:30AM two of the days we were there. The day we had a tour booked early the breakfast area was very quiet. It was nice to be able to eat a healthy breakfast for at least a few days on our trip.

It was also just so cool to look out on the gondolas getting ready for the day while eating breakfast.

Don't hesitate to book this hotel!

If you are tall or big (I'm 6'4'' and average weight) you may find the ceiling short and the room small. I really was't in the room too much time but the size was a problem, yes I'm claustrophobic. Hotel is bit on the older side but nice decorated.

Another great hotel booked thorugh Avventure Bellisimo. Awesome location on the canals- a dream come true. Spend the extra money and stay in Venice itself- after the tourists leave you can wander round and feel like it's your own island. Great location and enjoyed being right in the centre of the town. The gondola taxi stand outside was entertaining.

Room Tip: Try to get a room overlooking the canal so you can video the gondolas going past and the opera singi...

This is probably one of the best hotels i visited in Rome. The location is right, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfast is just amazing!
The staff is very helpful. Fortunately i got a deal which included a free trip to Murano. They took us in a luxury taxi, which also was a great experience.
True value for money, definitely will come and stay here if i ever get a chance to go back to Venice again!

Room Tip: first floor rooms would have a better view of the canal and gondolas.

Good location, and very good sized rooms. But I have gven this ol,y an Average rating for a few reasons. there was a bad sewerage smell in the bathroom, and the shower was simply a tap with a tiny shower curtain next to the toilet, providing barely enough room to shower! also, while the concierge staff were excellent, the breakfast dining staff were rude, inattentive, slow to respond to coffee orders and just plain sullen.

We had a fab 3 nights over New Year. The hotel was excellent, very close to ST Marks Square, excellent location. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Our room was on the 2nd floor and was quite spacious, very big bed which was extremely comfortable. We liked the decor of the hotel, glass chandeliers and some nice touches. Breakfast was very good for a European hotel with cooked food each day plus prosecco which was a nice touch. I will definitley only look at this hotel if we returned as it was excellent value for money. We arrived at the hotel by booking a transfer with locostaxi who I would definitely recommend, It was not cheap at 220 euros for the return trip but so easy and took us almost straight to the door of the hotel , first by car to the port area then a water taxi. The price is the same if there are 4 of you sharing so this makes it a better price.

Room Tip: We had room 205 which did not have a view but was quite spacious and good bathroom and shower.
