The worst hotel I ever stayed at was in Venice, so I had low expectations. The entrance of this hotel is not promising. There is a steepish flight of steps up to the reception, and when we got up them there was no-one on reception. As well as us wanting to check in, there were a couple wanting to check out. My companion had to go off in search of someone to check us in.
Generally though the staff were friendly and helpful, with the gentleman carrying our suitcases down the stairs at the end of the stay.
So, not a good first impression. However the room was a pleasant surprise. Not luxurious but light and airy, and generally clean though perhaps not completely spotless.
Our room overlooked a tiny alley, and there was little noise from outside. The walls are thin though, and noise comes clearly from other rooms so a light sleeper may find this a problem.
Not much is provided in the way of toiletries. Just a sliver of soap and tiny sachets of shower gel.
Good location, a few minutes from the train station where there is also a vaporetto stop. Very close to the Grand Canal and the Jewish ghetto, and perhaps 20 minutes walk to The Rialto Bridge, and a few more minutes to St Mark’s Square. Lots of shops, cafes, and restaurants in the vicinity.More
