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!
