“Great Location and Very Friendly Hotel”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Excellent locations easy to get to from the ferry and great for getting around Venice. Friendly team of staff and good value drinks in the bar. Three good restaurants across the alleyway from the hotel. Recommend this hotel for your stay in Venice and I will be going back on our next visit.

Small friendly, family run hotel, centrally located in a quiet piazza. Short walk from San Zaccaria vaporetto stop, which is important when arriving and leaving with luggage! Can be done without a canal bridge too! Staff helpful. Rooms clean, if a little dated.

We stayed for two nights, and we found the hotel was in a fantastic location minutes from everything in Venice. Although dated the room was plenty big enough and extremely clean!
The hotel staff were so friendly and helpful with recommending places to eat and drink.
Overall very good value for money and would certainly recommend a stay at this hotel.

A small family run hotel, just a few minutes walk to St Mark's Square and close to the Vaparetto stop for easy travelling around. A great location from which to explore this fabulous city. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Have just spent a very enjoyable few days in Venice based at this hotel. The situation is perfect being so close to the waterbus stop and also St Mark' Square. The hotel, although small, was very comfortable, clean and had a lift to all floors, a luxury not found in all Venetian hotels. Breakfast was provided and this was the usual self-service meal found in most continental hotels. The owners were pleasant and helpful, giving us advice on how best to see Venice and surrounding area and even providing an early breakfast to facilitate our departure.

A really pleasant stay in Venice finished this morning with an early breakfast- no extra charge for very early breakfast - the hotel is run very well by an exceptional staff, food was good, our room was a little small but more than satisfactory. Our companions had a larger room with an outside balcony ( we're not jealoue. Honest) Please visit this hotel it's well worth supporting
