This is a very small hotel in an old building, smack in the middle of the San Marcos district. Try to get very specific directions as it's down a tiny street which fronts. The hotel really feels as if one were in old Venice - dark, a bit mysterious, one is almost surprised to find a modern bathroom in their room! The hotel is convenient to many Venetian attractions, all within easy walking distance. The staff are very warm, easy going and friendly, feeling like a sort of family run place. The only amenities are the quaint breakfast in the morning, included in the price (as is Wi-Fi), served in a tiny but charming breakfast room/lounge, with newspapers available and the option to sit in their tiny, enhancing patio, surrounded by old Venetian buildings, quiet - as it's in the back, blue sky, bright sun, and the ringing of local church bells. Cappuccinos are available on request, which for coffee lovers is a real bonus. They also make coffee, teas and cookies available in the afternoons, for the guests who would like a pick me up after hours of sight-seeing. The bathrooms are done with an interesting taste, as if to sort of incorporate the feel of old Venice. The beds are comfortable, and the sheets good quality. Being Venice, if your room faces the front, you might hear passerby, and it is quite dark. If you need more quiet and light, request a room at the back. The narrow street the hotel is on almost seems like an emote alleyway, but actually leads to a dock on the Grand Canal facing the Guggenheim Museum across the water, and with the famous "Ponte dell'Accademia" bridge on the right. There are also another 2 hotels down the same little street. If you want to feel immersed in ancient Venice, and stay right in the middle of everything, this is the place for you. If you want spacious, modern rooms, and a peaceful, quiet neighborhood, you need to stay further afield, in a neighborhood a bit further off from this center. But a nice hotel, with nice staff.
One note, if you book a private water taxi back to the airport with them, you will have to pay with cash only, so go the the bank the day before!
