“In the center of Venice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013

Fine location - in the center of Venice. To San Marko Square you will go only three minutes. To a stop vaporetto - 5 minutes. Set of restaurants and trattorias nearby, for example on the area near church Santa Maria Formoza.
Rooms are a little shabby, but everything is very clean, towels is ideal, and beds is convenient.
Lets you close windows and turn on the conditioner - so you will escape from mosquitoes.
Wi-Fi is not include (3 euros for an hour), but on the second floor is the computer which guests can use.

Stayed here in June 2013 and the hotel was OK. Although expensive (paid about $165 USD a night), what you're paying for is the location really. Got completely lost when we got to Venice trying to locate the small hotel, but when we found it, it was easy to remember its location. Room had no toilet paper upon arrival, and towels were not replaced with clean ones the following day. We did have a good view of the canal, and the hotel is quiet too. Internet is expensive, but when you buy the 24 hour, it's not continuous, so that's a good thing (timing counts upon log-in and log-off). Restrooms (in the rooms) are quite small, and there is no iron, they'll "show" you to the ironing room after 9am only. You must leave the room key when you leave, which can be both a good and bad thing, but since it's a big heavy key, it's better that you leave it, although they close at 11pm or so. Overall, good hotel but will likely choose another next time even if I pay extra.

Serviceable. I'd say we stayed here because it was "cheap," but nothing is cheap in Venice . . . it was just less expensive than other hotels, and seemed ideally located. Breakfast is fine -- was nice to have that included -- and this place is indeed right where you want to be, close to San Marco and an easy stroll to the Rialto Bridge.

It's pretty lame that they don't have wi-fi for guests (or, they do actually have it, but they charge you a ridiculous fee to use it and we were unwilling to pay). But overall, this worked fine for our three days in Venice, and if you keep your expectations low this is a clean, decent option that won't break the bank.

We stayed here for 3 nights in August. While it is not the place if you want five-star luxury, it is ideal if you want somewhere clean, cheap and ideally located. Rooms are basic with good air con and the breakfast is tasty and plentiful. The location is great but we found it very difficult to find in Venice's streets so it is worth having a map well-prepared. The canal outside is beautiful and it is very close to St. Mark's square. Worth it if you want something cheap and no frills.

A very nice small hotel in a good location. The surroundings are lovely and quiet street though it is close to St. Mark's Square. Nice and friendly staff. We had room with bathroom and everything was clean and nice. It's a okay breakfast with the necessary and they have good coffee. Payment is due at check out, observe tax not included.

This 1 star hotel is in a very good location. 5 mins walk to San Zaccaria vaporetto station, right next to St. Marks square. And this is almost the only positive. The breakfast is not a buffet and includes bread, cheese, milk, juice and croissant. The rooms does not have a TV! Choose this hotel only if you need a cheap hotel in the heart of Venice, just for sleep!
