    The staff were really helpful as we arrived late, they left the key and instructions on the desk. It was close enough to all the action but far enough away to be quiet at night.

    It took us 2 hours to find it as its in a very little street that looks like house. There is no clear signs to indictae its a hotel. We aksed alot of people in bars and cafes and not many people had heard of it.

    Staff were most helpful. When the Iceland volcano meant our flight was cancelled, they arranged accommodation in another hotel because they were fully booked. Within 10 min walk of St Marks square and Rialto.

    excellent localisation, nice room cleaned every day, friendly stuff.

    The location and helpful staff. Worth paying a little more to overlook a canal.

    The staff person, Michael, was fantastic. He was uniformly polite and helpful. The room was beautiful (#202), and it had a great view. The location was fantastic. It was just a short walk (5 minutes) from San Marco's Square. I would not have wanted to be closer because of the crowds.

    The bed was very hard. However, the pillows were nice.

    The location and view from the room was unbelievable; overlooking 2 canals. Not difficult to find with a map, GPS, and asking directions. Great bathroom and helpful friendly staff.

    Breakfast was very basic. Narrow steps would have been a problem if the staff person didn't carry my bags for me. Room, bed, etc was fine.

  • Group of friends
    7.0

    Within walking distance of St Marks, Rialto Bridge and shops/restaurants. Next to large square and small bridges over canals to sit and watch the gondolas go by.

    Economy Room was very small. We only had two cases, any more than that and it would have been difficult to actually move around the room. Although friends we travelled with who I also booked economy rooms for and paid same price were given much larger room which was ornately furnished which they were happy with (think they were given an upgrade). Breakfast room on ground floor snugly fits only 8 people. Breakfast is prepared in the small reception area kitchen and could not really be described as 'buffet'. Really just few rolls with a choice of ham/cheese/yogurt/cereal/croissant. It was adequate for a light morning breakfast.

    The location was not bad to see the Venice(5 min. on foot to San Marco), the small chanel was under our window but there wasn't any bad smell.

    We had to take privat motor-launch for 50 euros to get to hotel from parking place which is the one the island, otherwise it's too difficult to find the hotel if you are at first time in Venice. The furniture in the room was too old and dirty, they need to be more neat. The bar for breakfast was too small and I can't imagine how was it possible to eat if the hotel was full. No caps for expresso, poor meal, nothing special. The hotels near Grand Channel are more comfortable and easier to get to.

    reception / housekeeper / waiter (all in one) was very friendly and helpful... but understandably rushed off his feet trying to do everything at once! location was good, once we had found the place! room was nice enough but see bad points below...

    i had paid extra for a room upgrade and even emailed ahead saying it was our honeymoon, please please put us in a decent room... we were put in the basic room. i was not happy to say the least!! breakfast was awful... yoghurts and bread, that was it. very basic. the whole hotel felt very 'chip shop' - it was a one man show, he was trying so hard to do everything... but washing the plates and cutlery from breakfast at 9am right behind you in the kitchen (which was really just a tiny cupboard with a sink in!) is not acceptable for a supposedly 4* hotel. no facilities, too hard to find and most definitely not worth the money!

    The rooms were comfortable and the aircon worked really well - something we have missed in previous hot days in Venice. Location was brilliant.

    Breakfast room very small - not much they can do I know, because of the building design but not relaxing.

    Rooms, beds, location. It was really good holiday's with family.

  • Family with children

    Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice big shower. Steep stairs to some rooms. Take note of hotel staff's very good instructions on finding the place as Venice is not an easy place to find your way around.

    Bed was a bit hard

  • Older travelers

    We liked the location next to the Campo Santa Maria - a lovely big square with restaurants great for Venetian food and people watching.

    The rooms are small, difficult to get to (35 stairs) with luggage and no help from the hotel staff. Also you are obliged to turn off the feeble air conditioning whenever you leave the room which means you return to a baking hot room after a walk. The light was so low in the room (probably to save electricity) that it was impossible to read.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    Very good location(5 minutes walking from S.m sequeer), many resturants and shopping places around the hotel, nice new decoration of the rooms, steep stairs when you go to your room, no first floor room and very small resturant for breakfast(house kitchen actualy, with few food selection for breakfast, Staff are very helpfull, and it is right on the canal you realy enjoy the view

  • Couple
    9.2

    Location to St. Marks square was ideal and hotel staff was friendly and provided a helpful map. Breakfasts were reasonably good and comparable to other hotels in this category visited. Room was very clean and decor nice and set good stage for Venice. For the location (mid-island Venice) and price (~130 Euro) this was a very reasonable hotel akin to a really good 3 star or 4 star hotel.

    The electricity required the room key- making the ac turn off during the day. Breakfast room can overflow and this requires you to go next door up multiple flights of stairs to have breakfast. This is annoying if you are young, but would be a severe inconvenience if you are older or have joint/stair related injuries. It also wastes a fair bit of time (perhaps 5 to 10 minutes more than eating in the standard room in the lobby). The room safe (in Bellini) was strange and didn't seem to work quite well. Furthermore, the bathroom fan needs some work as it was quite noisy (we ended up just using the bathroom sink light instead to avoid the fan to remove moisture in the bathroom.
