During a stay in Florence with a friend, we did a two day side trip to Venice with one night at Domus Ciliota. I had been to Venice in the past, but only for a day trip from Lake Garda so I had no idea where the hotel was situated and followed my friend who is a Venice whizz! It's not far from the Accademia bridge, in a very quiet side street. I noticed plenty of restaurants, bars, etc. in the area.
The hot weather was extreme, so the efficient air conditioning was a huge plus. My single room was extremely large and whilst basic, had plenty of cupboards and shelves. The bed was comfortable; I heard no noise from other guests during the night or from outside so slept well.
An adequate buffet breakfast next morning was set out in a large room, and could be taken either here or in a lovely courtyard.
I would definitely stay here again when (not if!) I return to Venice.
