“Highly expensive for its worth”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

You have to be Indiana Jones to find this hotel. Google maps has bad coordinates for it.
It is administered by the close by hotel Bella Venezia.

This residence is actually a tiny apartment close to the hotel.

Negatives:
Tiny room ,
very expensive
Faulty air conditioning (got very cold during the night)
Furniture looked old and in bad condition.
Mold at the bath ceiling.

Positives:
Close to Rialto and San Marco,
Nice bath
Nice breakfast

We had a little hiccup on arrival. With some excellent directions that my mom found for me from other reviewers, we found the hotel without a problem. When we arrived, however, there was no one at the check-in desk. I tried calling the hotel, the company where we made reservations, and nothing. I kind of freaked out and then realized there was a sign on the door to go to a nearby hotel to check-in. Now I really wish I had read some of the reviews before the trip.

Anyway, the hotel had a great room, great breakfast, and so-so service (I asked the front desk where the nearest grocery store was located. She flat out told me they were all closed on Sunday and I should just go to the bar down the street. When I walked through the city, I passed by many grocery stores, all open. They just closed earlier on Sundays).

I would stay in another part of the city because to get back to the hotel at night, it was impossible to avoid extremely crowded areas. That's the appeal of hotel that it's so centrally located, but since Venice isn't that large, I would rather stay in a much less crowded area and just walk to the tourist sites when I want to, avoid them when I don't.

Finding this place and checking in was not easy. If you haven't been to Venice you don't realize that directions and maps need to be taken with a grain of salt. Eventually found our way to a small alley with a note on a door to call or go to another location to check in. Having no phone we had to figure out where the other location was. We did finally and all went smoothly from there but as it was 95 degrees and we had been traveling all day would have appreciated proper directions. Room was nice although it looked out over the very small dark alley. Breakfast was excellent and location was good too - halfway between San Marco square and the Rialto bridge.

We arrived here very tired after trekking around finding the place. There was a sign on the door directing us to a different hotel for check in or to ring the bell. We rang the bell and a guy told us someone would be round to get us so just to wait. We waited for ages and no one came so we rang the bell and no one answered. My wife went to find the other hotel that was written on the door and eventually we managed to get our key. The room was nice and met our needs. Breakfast was served at he other hotel and consisted of a great selection. Would probably stay here again.

This place wasn't cheap by our standards, but it was totally worth it. We stayed in the junior suite which has a great balcony overlooking a canal. The room is done up in silk tapestry wallpaper with Murano glass decor, very Venetian. The staff were helpful and friendly, the location is excellent, and the room is a nice size by Venice standards.

The only downside was the horrible shower that floods the bathroom and some crusty looking notices on the wall there.

Highly recommended, would stay there again.

This is one of the best-located hotels in Venice - once you find it! Tucked away in a little alley, you are close to everything and close enough to retreat during the middle of the day to escape the crowds.

Great hotel for an amazing city.
