My fiancee and I have just spent three nights here after booking a deal with travel zoo and we got moved here instead of the original hotel we had booked. I was a little bit sceptical after reading some reviews but have to say I did not encounter any of the problems people seemed to be talking about.
There were a couple of minor niggles that stop me rating this hotel excellent, one or two minor repairs needed here and there around the place, but nothing major or off putting.
The staff were all very pleasant and polite and could not of been more helpful.
The breakfast was a continental breakfast with croissant, breads, jam selection, ham, cheese, cereal the works. There is no sausage, egg and beans but that is not important. There was plenty there and it was all good quality and once again I cannot understand why people were knocking it.
The room was big with a massive bed (yes it was 2 singles pushed together) that was very comfortable. There was sky tv, easy chairs and coffee table, mini bar and a big spacious bathroom with a massive spare bath and shower.
We found the hotel at night without any trouble at all. I bought the DK EYE WITNESS TRAVEL, pocket map and guide, looked up the hotel on google maps and marked it on the map. We got on the water bus and changed at Rialto to another then got of at San Angelo and it was less than a five minute walk using the map. Once there it is a brilliant location for discovering Venice. It was a ten minute leisurely walk (including window brousing) to Piazza San Marco with the Basilica and Doge's Palace. Also 10 minutes walk (and very straight forward) to the Rialto bridge which was the way we chose to go when returning rather than changing buses.
Over all it is a very good hotel with very nice staff and perfectly locate to just wonder around and discover San Marco in the centre of Venice.
