After looking at a number of hotels in the Venice area we settled on this one. Only 10 minute walk from the main vaporetto stop for the Lido, this hotel offers a very quiet retreat from the hassle and bustle of Venice. We booked a deluxe double room with a balcony overlooking the laguna and that is exactly what we got although 'deluxe' is a subjective description I dare say based on the standard of the other rooms which we did not see! Overall, the hotel was clean, room linen and towels changed daily and in good decorative order. What makes this hotel value for money is the warmth and helpfulness of the staff. Nothing was too much trouble, to the point that whilst a coffee machine was available for all guests we asked for a variety of different specific coffee types in the morning and they were delivered to our table with a smile. In my opinion it is the little things that count. The reception staff were also very helpful, either giving directions to restaurants we had already investigated or asking for recommendations, one of which we went back to twice in a week long stay (see trattoria Favorita). All things considered and given the amount we paid for this week long stay, I would have no reservations recommending this hotel to friends and if returning to the area would use again! Apologies, have put terrible for the swimming pool only because there wasn't one!
