“Great location”
Reviewed 29 June 2013

The hotel is situated 1h10 min by water bus from the airport. Water bus is 15 euro each way per person or you can take a water taxi for 110 euro and be up to 4 people in it. It's the only way to get there. You exit the water bus to 'San Marco' or 'baccaria' and walk through San Marco square and the basilica to get to the hotel. It's literally 1 min walk to these points of interests. The location couldn't be better. We arrived early (around noon) and we only had to wait 15 min and our suite was ready. Room 123 is very big with a kitchen, huge living room, big bedroom, i didn't find the bed comfortable. I could feel every springs and I was actually 2 twin beds pushed together. the bathroom was very nicely appointment. Breakfast buffet is also included, they serve eggs, yogurt, croissant, cereals, fruit salads etc. the food was just "ok". the staff was nice and helpful and allowed us a late check out as we were still tired from time zone change. This place is at walking distance to the main attractions and lots of restaurants and shopping. Their wifi is very weak and you seem to be only able to access it between the lobby and the dinning room.and even sometimes it wasn't working. No wifi at all in the rooms. This is a very small hotel with only a few rooms. Great for small stays.We only stayed one night pre cruising.

The hotel was located centrally next to St Marks Square which was the major benefit of this hotel.

The rooms weren't great: no curtains, bathroom was tiny, CNN was the only English channel, no thick curtains over the windows. The bed was very comfortable though and the room was big. We did request a canal view which was granted and the room wasn't noisy.

The buffet breakfast in the morning was standard but did the job.

Overall the hotel was fairly expensive for what it was (granted it was in the centre of Venice).

Three night stay in February 2013

Location;
Set just off St Mark's Square and a 5 min walk from the Rialto bridge, location is ideal for those wanting to be near major tourist attractions. Lots of nice restaurants nearby too.

Room;
A beautiful, spacious and clean room with traditional venetian decor. The room had a safe and a TV and was cleaned to a high standard daily. Bed was very comfortable.

Bathroom;
Clean and spacious bathroom. Towels and toiletries were provided. The temperature of the shower did sway a little bit from warm to hot, but nothing terrible.

Breakfast;
A plentiful buffet was provided in a beautiful breakfast salon with canal views. There was plenty of variety.

Staff;
Staff were very friendly and spoke good english. They provided me with useful info on how to make a day trip to nearby islands, how to use public transport and best way to go to the train station at the end of my stay.

Value for money;
I felt this hotel was very good value for money

Stayed here for my honeymoon. Hotel is 2 minutes within walking distance of St. Mark's Square. We were told we had a double suite. The suite was large but it was dingy. Shower was still wet in the tub when we went to use it- looked nothing like the pictures on here, reminded us of a hospital. Presentation was awful because there were several (full) trash bags outside of our room. There was a large balcony overlooking a canal with two seats and a table, but overall it felt like the rooms were oddly furnished and in need of a good scrub.

Wonderful location as advertised, but terrible experience. We booked particular rooms and paid 3 months in advance to get the suites we needed for our family. We reserved two-bedroom suites each with a separate living room. When we arrived, we were taken to rooms that were not what we reserved, and not adequate for our group. We got rooms with one bed and a sofa-bed. The extremely rude young desk clerk insisted we got what we needed (she said there were enough beds so she didn't see what the problem was) and that there were no rooms like we reserved. She refused to contact the manager, or to give us any other help to get adequate accommodations. I have never had such a bad travel experience or worse treatment. We wound up staying in the hotel because we could not get other rooms so late in Venice in summer -- sharing a room with our adult daughter on a sofa bed, boy and girl teen-age siblings sharing a sofa bed in their parents' room, etc. The hotel refused even to refund the substantial difference in price between the room we got and the rooms we reserved.
This hotel should never be recommended for anyone.

Room Tip: No good rooms, because no good people. The hotel could be lovely with proper management, as the roo...

This is the worst experience we have ever had in nearly 50 years of traveling. The staff was rude, lied to us, made us feel as if they were doing us a favor by waiting on us, all in a hotel that was aging with mediocre amenities at best. We paid for two room suites and they were given away to others when we arived. The refused to return our money for the cost of the one room and two room suites and although the manger promised to take care of us, the best he did was escort us to the most expensive restaurant attached to the hotel and then give us a 5% discount.

The front desk clerk was a young woman who was in her early to mid twenties and was the rudest lier we have ever met. We even asked her for some water while checking in and she told us to get it from the toilet down the hall.

This place should be avoided at all costs. More crooked than the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
