Firstly, thanks to all the previous Tripadvisor reviewers for providing the information that led me to book this hotel. Secondly to the owners and staff of the hotel who helped make our trip to Venice very special.
The location of the hotel makes it very easy to arrive from the airport. We took the Alilaguna public water bus which we booked online for a small saving. The waterbus takes you directly to San Stae stop which is only the third from the airport. We arrived in the dark and I was slightly confused how to get to the hotel. However it is very easy, When you get off the boat the street is called Campo S, Stae, there is a church in front of you and at the end of the church there is a very narrow lane (this is literally less than 100 steps from the bus stop and opposite house no. 1966) go down the lane and the side door of the hotel is on your right. If you don't want to go down the lane in the dark then walk the short distance to the first street on the left, go over the small bridge and immediately left along the narrow canal path. The first small bridge you arrive at is for the hotel.
The hotel is very small and intimate, traditionally furnished and immaculately clean. Our room was perfect with a minbar and tv. internet was reasonable and of course free. Breakfast is served between the small breakfast room and reception/bar area. We found it perfectly adequate and staff were lovely and efficient. There is lots I can say about the hotel but it has been said so many times by others.I'll just say one thing, if you are going to Venice give this hotel a try.
I loved the area around the hotel and great meals in nearby restaurants. Please ask the staff where to eat and anything about the city as everything they told us was spot on and accurate.
Please also do not hesitate to contact me for any further information.
Hopefully one day we will return.
