We have just returned from a three night stay in Venice to celebrate my brother's 'significant' birthday and were delighted to have chosen this welcoming family run hotel as our base. The location was great; a short straight walk from the Vaporetto stops and Alilaguna, via St Zaccaria, with lovely restaurants and shops on the doorstep. The welcome was incredibly warm - all the staff were very friendly and were happy to help. We had a good sized double room above the lounge at the front of the building and were able to pick up the wi-fi no trouble, rather than going to the lounge for a signal. My brother's room was a single at the very top of the building, looking over the rooftops towards St Zaccaria. Both rooms were a good size, comfortable and very clean. The location is great with the Rialto, St Marco, Arsenale all within a short walk. The beauty of it being tucked away behind the waterfront is it's away from the crowds although still within a bustling area of the city with a good, safe atmosphere. The proprietors and staff make all the difference, they really are very welcoming and focused on making their guests' stays as enjoyable as possible - and even gave us a lovely souvenir of our stay! A good, well priced hotel for visitors looking to get out and explore this unique and beautiful city.
