I had been warned to expect really tiny pokey hotel rooms in Venice but this hotel was a wonderful surprise. The suite of rooms we had were quite a luxury. However, Another set of rooms which our friends had reserved was fascinating. They had just asked for one bedroom with an extra bed. Instead they got a double bedroom and two single bedrooms, one of which is delightfully tucked away in an attic. There was also a kitchenette and a drawing cum dining room. In Venice this is total luxury of space !!
The hotel is tucked away in the alleys and a bit difficult to find, so do ask for directions from the hotel, before-hand which will lead you to the right place. It's not a far walk from the vaporetto station. And since the water taxi reaches up to their doorstep, this is a convenient option, though taxis are very expensive.
We stayed here only for one night and we enjoyed it. The wi fi is very good, rooms and clean and well maintained and the receptionist is helpful. The free water taxi ride offered to murrano is also welcome.
I would say, choose this hotel, if you are staying in Venice for two or three days as it will give you a chance to really enjoy the hotel. It is a bit out of the way compared to other hotels closer to Rialto etc, but is totally worth it, if you have enough time and leisure to enjoy the hotel.
Also each suite of rooms seem to be drastically different from the other, so it may make sense to make enquiries about the number of bedrooms, baths etc when you make your reservation
