Room Nine was awesome because I could wake up from a nap and see the church steeple in the piazza in which it sat. this piazza de san maria formosa is an easy walk from two water bus stops S.Roma and Rialto bridge. I'm a big boy who doesn't like to walk much so it helped to stay in this hotel. Room nine is on the third floor but no worries, Andre took my bags up three flights upon check in. I also cheated and used the porter service from Rialto bridge because I didnt know the location of the hotel scandinavia and i had two heavy bags, one, a backpack with torn straps. The room is facing the piazza san maria formosa where residents congregate for church services. they are a lively group who stand outside the church and converse or an hour after services are done, then they go to the restaurants to drink until four am so it is alittle loud. but after touring the city from sunrise to sundown, i didn't care, i was busy sawing logs. I loved the hotel for its cleanliness from light fixtures to railings. i inspected so i know. i liked the sitting area on the second floor, where i could read and surf facebook using the hotel free wi-fi. the full occupancy hotel was fine for noise. visitors must have been having a good time as everyone was cheerful and said bonjourno to me while i sat there one morning. the water pressure was weak. the beds were comfortable, the safe was too small, the breakfasts were nutritional and i thoroughly enjoyed what was offered. breads were baked fresh right there. the coffee machines were spitting out great coffee as much as i wanted to enjoy. the cereals, yogarts, extras were awesome. the staff was efficient and helped me learn Italian. be careful to wear flipflops in the shower and walk around the rooms on handpainted ceramic tile so as not to slip. Forget staying at this place if you want an elevator...on second thought, skip the entire area of Venice if you want a hotel with a lift or elevator because you wont find one for historical reasons. there is a Hilton by the airport if you want peace and quiet and an elevator. There you have it.
