I hadn't thought of staying in a monastery before now, but I wouldn't hesitate to book this one again!
DON'T think strict rules, ancient facilities and grim atmosphere, this place had a good ensuite bathroom, a great garden where we were welcome to have a beer at the end of the day, access to a fridge and microwave, WiFi in the public areas, an ample breakfast and very friendly staff!
The monastery is in a great location, only 10 minutes to the station/vaporetto/buses, and within easy reach of everything. There are small cafes and a bakery nearby The few remaining nuns had moved to other accommodation on 1 September 2013 and I suspect things are less strict now, thought there's still a midnight curfew. The staff are very keen to make your stay in Venice memorable and they have good English, plus a willingess to help with Italian phrases.
The rooms are not large and are modestly furnished, but are clean and comfortable with single beds only - not a problem for my son and I. All this was 105 euros for the two of us - a bargain I can truly recommend!
