          The location was excellent and the hotel was clean. The lobby was air conditioned and there were areas to sit. The rooms were comfortable.

          • Average rating
        • Family with children

          Excellent location in Venice, Italy, close enough to the action, yet just far enough away to feel some peace. The hotel is very tastefully done, very comfortable beds. Our rooms had nice views onto a piazza. The breakfast (and coffee!)was excellent. The staff were generally very helpful, though they were overwhelmed at one point at check-out time.

        • Family with children

          The location was great, staff friendly and rooms clean, breakfast good

          No tea and coffee in room - although you could ask for it to be brought

          The location and the breakfast selection was terrific.

          The accomidations are not worth the price paid. The room was very, very small for the price I paid and the a/c had a hard time pumping out air. The internet did not work and when I reported this to the front desk clerk, he told the problem was my computer - then 2 other guests came up while I was there with the same issue, his response "I hate computers" and he walked away. Also when I arrived, I was given no information - the gentleman asked for my passport, had me sign in, and told me to step aside and wait for his associate. 5 minutes later a bellman came, picked up my bag and took me to my room - again, no information offered about anything.

          Close and accessible to all facilities

          No morning coffee preparations in room, no facilities for ironing, we had these items our stay in Barcelona (Hotel Barcelo Sants)

          Excellent near-central position in Venice, and very close to a vaporetto stop, but sufficiently far away from St Mark's Square to avoid paying the premium price for accommodation.

        • Older travelers

          The Breakfast selection was excellent and the room was larger than expected. Within easy walking distance of popular sights.

          The elevator was on the 2nd floor so we had to take the steps from the 1st floor to get to it.

          It was in walking distance to St.Marks square and Rialto Bridge. I liked the canal out our window and watched the gondolas passing by. That was a real treat...Very romantic,,the breakfast was also very good.

          Bathroom was too small..but I did enjoy having a bath/shower combo

          Generally a comfortable hotel although the rooms are relatively basic however the location is very good for sightseeing

          The room was nhot as comfortable as I had expected and the bed and pillows were hard

        • Older travelers

          I have traveled many places and have stayed in many hotels. This was one of the best. The service was amazing, the hotel was immaculately clean, the inclusive breakfast was unbelievable in variety and quality. I would definitely stay there again and would recommend to anyone looking for a hotel in Venice Italy. I give it 5 stars all the way around.

        • Older travelers

          It was a nice room located right on a gondola route.

          Not designed for the handicapped. You have to go up a flight and a half of stairs before you get to an elevator. The room lighting is very poor.

        • Family with children

          Easy to reach San Macro and other sightseeing points. The staff is nice and helpful. Breakfast is good. The hotel restaurant is good.

          The only thing I would like to point out is that they should alert customers that the nearby pier is closed and advised us to take water taxi or provide another route for us to reach the hotel from train station. My family and I were so disappointed to find that the nearest pier, Giglio, was closed while we were already on board and have no ideas what to do. We finally have to get off from another pier Academia and cross over the bridge with 4 big luggages and have no ideas how to reach the hotel......totally frustrated by that point of time. The most important is we are wasting almost 1 hour in locating the hotel.

        • Older travelers

          This was a return visit and did not disappoint. As before it is a great location, near the sights and the waterbus stop. The three day run around ticket can be bought nearby at a tobacconists in the direction of St. Marks Square. The staff are very attentive and the breakfasts extremely well organised and there is a wonderful choice. A very enjoyable stay.

          No there is nothing we could say we did not like. Will reply yes to the question about reviews reflecting our experience even though we had noticed a very small number of unflattering reviews.

          The room was poky but clean and breakfast was good. Not a luxury hotel but ok for a night or two if you are on a budget. Very convenient for central Venice.

          A large number of poor rooms along long corridors but you get what you pay for.
