We stayed here for two nights as part of our honeymoon and were delighted with our choice of hotel. Many hotels in this price range looked rather small and old fashioned so it was a real surprise when we came across this modern hotel for the same price.
First of all, getting there. We arrived by train and contrary to some reports on here the hotel was very easy to find. Basically, once you exit Santa Lucia station ignore the first bridge outside the station and turn left and walk past the shops and restaurants until you reach another bridge. Cross the bridge and turn immediate left along the canal. Look for an alleyway on your right (almost immediately) with a small "Pozzo" sign above it. The hotel is at the end of this alleyway.
The hotel itself is spotless. The room is spacious and there is a fridge containing 2 bottles of water which are free to guests. Further drinks can be purchased from the mini-bar at very reasonable prices. The bathroom was spotless, as was the room and a nice little touch was receiving a little box of chocolates on the pillow when we arrived.
Customer service from the hotel was also excellent. The guy that greeted us on the front desk was very friendly and had a lot of advice for us. He seemed very proud of the hotel. The night porter was also friendly and whilst his English was probably not as good he still tried to help as much as he could.
Breakfast was great and the girl serving coffees was also friendly. There is a lot of choice here and was perfect for setting us up for a full day out in Venice.
Although it was the beginning of October, we ventured up onto the roof garden which would be great to sit out in the summer I would imagine. It's so peaceful away from the hustle and bustle of the Venetian streets.
Although Venice is not a huge place, it seemed bigger once we got there due to the many twists and turns through the streets to get to the main attractions. Although further out than most of the main areas, I think this hotel is in a perfect location as it is peaceful and quiet but at the same time, near to plenty of shops and restaurants and right next to one of the Vaporetto stops.
Overall, a great hotel and a fantastic experience which I would fully recommend.
