This hotel provided an excellent base for our 3 night stay in Venice. Using the directions from earlier reviews it is easy to find. We took backpacks to avoid having to drag cases on and off boats and through the crowds.
Most (if not all) of the rooms overlook a small canal so you can't forget you are in Venice! It is fairly noisy during the day because of the gondola stop below but we loved watching the canal from the window. It was quiet enough at night to sleep.
The room was very small (I had to get in the wardrobe to take a picture of the room!) but after a couple of hours we got used to it and actually found it quite cosy. The bathroom was quite large in comparison. Both the bedroom and bathroom were very clean. Found the beds quite comfy, perhaps not as luxurious as you'd find in a 5 star hotel but we weren't paying 5 star prices! Buffet breakfast was included with the deal we got and there was plenty of choice each morning and everything was very fresh. Staff on reception were always very friendly. The hotel felt very safe.
The location couldn't have been better. We walked or got the water bus everywhere. The water bus pass was about 25 Euros for a 3 day ticket. Definately worth the money if you intend to see all the sights. Getting around on the boat was a great experience.
We went in August and the weather wasn't too hot and it wasn't at all smelly. People had warned us it would be. Perhaps we were just lucky with the weather.
