I chose this hotel as we were arriving late and I wanted something close to the Piazza Roma where the ATVO comes in. There was a note on the booking that said to email the hotel if you were arriving after 10.30pm, which I did - and was told that reception closed at 10.30pm but that we could collect the room keys from the parking attendant (Ca Doge has a huge car park - in fact, it's more of a car park with rooms that a hotel with parking!).
By luck, we arrived at just after 10pm, expecting reception to still be open - but it wasn't, instead there was a printed sign sellotaped to the glass main door asking us to collect keys as arranged, with my name on it in big red letters! Slightly odd but it all worked perfectly - though might scare a more nervous traveller slightly. They even left me the wi-fi code as I had asked, but for some reason this did not work until the next morning. Once it did, it was fast and reliable.
The room was very similar to other Venetian hotels of this bracket I have stayed in, slightly 'faded elegance' - but a surprisingly good bathroom. Bed was comfy, noise levels fine, even though we were in a busy area. We discovered the next morning that it only has 6 rooms in total, which I hadn't realised. Breakfast was included and was a reasonable selection of 'continental' items - though the toaster for the bread was a Breville sandwich maker which seems to make it warm and a bit crispy, but not really toast coloured! Again, just a few slightly 'odd' elements . . . Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel for location and price.
One thing to bear in mind, the name of hotel not obvious from the outside. I expected to see it from the coach but we had to ask for directions, even though the building was clearly visible!
