We stayed here for 4 days last year and this can only be described as a budget hostel with private rooms. The bed was incredibly hard and we were only provided with one pillow each and two very scratchy woolen blankets to use over the sheets. The windows had daunting metal roller shutters so you could air the room securely but as our view overlooked a car park/yard we weren't overly bothered for opening them!
The reception staff took our passports the day we checked in and then promptly scolded us the next day for not having them with us when we went in to Venice as we could 'end up in jail for days without them' which given their insistence on taking them the day before should have set the alarm bells ringing really!
The WiFi was chargeable and cost an absolute fortune for what surmounted to a connection that could quite possibly have been outdone by paper cups on string!
One of my favourite moments in this hotel was probably when I had the audacity to ask reception for the use of an iron, at which point I was glanced up and down and informed that I should use the laundry next door but not the same one as them as 'We Venetians aren't like Europeans and Americans, we have the nice clothes' A nice, scathing moment!
The shower cubicle in the bathroom was absolutely tiny so showering became some sort of acrobatic challenge and the fittings were all incredibly dated with no towels provided.
Breakfast can probably be described as 'continental' in a fairly loose term and there's not really any sign of any staff during this time, although given how unfriendly they all came across, this probably wasn't a bad thing!
On the plus side this place is only a 5 minute walk from the train station and a couple of restaurants.
