This hotel gets great ratings and they are well deserved.
We stayed for 4 nights, arriving at the train station and taking the vaporetto (water bus, #1 line - local) to the Sant' Angelo stop. How wonderful to find the convenient location wasn't wishful thinking from some copywriter's pen! It's hard for me to think of a $560 room as a great value, but the rules are different in Venice. The location simply cannot be beat -- Venice isn't that big to begin with, but you have most of the major sites within a 15-minute walk.
We stayed in a junior suite with a courtyard view. It was quiet as a tomb, with double-pane windows that opened for ventilation. The bathroom was modern, with double sinks and while not spacious by American standards, a darn sight better than 90% of what you find in Europe.
The breakfast buffet was acceptable for a hotel of this class -- a normal central European continental spread, with bacon and scrambled eggs for the British and American guests (the eggs were not warm, so be aware.) The hotel has a small lounge with canal-side tables for a drink or nightcap. There's no restaurant to speak of, but given its location, that's not a problem.
The staff had lots of recommendations on dining locations and is up to date on tourist site status, and their map is reasonably detailed enough for you to find your way through the habitrail that is Venice.
The staff is extremely accommodating and goes out of its way to make the guests comfortable, and this spirit affects everyone on the staff from the chambermaids to the general manager.
All in all, a great place. If there was a restaurant that matched the rest of the hotel, it would be a 5-star for sure. We will definitely return.
