We stayed in the Batik room for 3 nights. Without exaggeration, the room was only slightly larger than our double bed. We travel very light - no checked baggage - one "rollerboard" each - and it was very difficult to find a spot for our luggage. The shower was very clean - but oh so tiny. There is no way an overweight person could fit in. Also, there is no lift. So, this is not a hotel for disabled people or anyone else who cannot climb flights of steps.
Our room had a nice, small terrace with a table and 2 chairs.They said they offered free internet service. However, it was only available in the small lobby area (their laptop or you could connect your laptop in the lobby.). It was explained that it would cost too much to install free Wi/Fi for the entire hotel - so why advertise that it is an amenity? They offer a discount for meals at their adjacent restaurant. Most times, the restaurant was booked with noisy, large tour groups. We did not eat there.
Breakfast was fine. Two of the 3 mornings we needed breakfast earlier than the official serving time ( 8 a.m.) and they were very accomodating, but eggs and omelets were not available. Just cold offerings were served - fruit cup, yogurt, juice and rolls - plus hot beverages - which was more than enough.
Venice is expensive. This hotel, with its terrific location, and staff (Susanna) is a very nice small hotel.
