First of all, take a water taxi right to the front door of the Corte Grimardi. That is great.
What is great about that is without someone identifying the entrance to the building, your chance of finding it on your own is very, very small. Non-descript entrance would be too much credit. That is only good.
The location is amazing. Two blocks from San Marco and five minutes from Rialto (if you don't get lost first). The location is better than great.
The staff is great - helpful in absolutely every way.
The rooms are very spacious - that is great.
While the rooms are tidy, they are not appointed very nicely - quite Spartan. That is merely good.
In summary, this place is fantastic for the location and staff, with large runs that are not quite luxurious, but surely better than adequate. You can't go wrong with Corte Grimani.
REMINDER - DO NOT lose your map of Venice. You're not enjoying the city if you don't get completely lost three or four times a day.
