The location is perfect - close to the Grand Canal, a few steps from the Rialto Market vaporetti stop, right above the market.
The people at the desk are friendly and helpful. They carried my bag upstairs for me (for which, after a long train ride, I was very grateful,) and happily answered questions. I stayed in two different rooms, since a shared bathroom room was not available on the Sunday I arrived. I spent 1 night in a room with a bathroom, and 3 nights in a room without. Both were surprisingly large, with very comfortable beds and Murano glass chandeliers. The room that did not have a bathroom did have a sink. There is no television, but I never missed it.
Free WiFi is available in the lobby. My second room was closer to the stairs, and I could sometimes get a signal in my room. There are plenty of chairs downstairs in the lobby, so it was still pretty convenient. Breakfast is typical for Italy -- rolls, cereal, yogurt.
Since the hotel is so close to the Grand Canal, you can hear the very distinctive sounds of the vaporetti, as well as the market as they set up in the morning. I'm used to city noise, so I found it charming. There is no lift, so be prepared for one flight of stairs to the lobby, then another flight of stairs to your room. There are also a few small single rooms off the lobby.
