              The location was superb, the room was large, clean and airy. Breakfast was very good, and on booking we asked for an upstairs room with a view which is exactly what we got.

              Good ambience. Cleanliness in general. Breakfast with excellent view of the morning canal traffic if you get one of the tables overlooking the water. Breakfast fare very good and morning staff busy but accomodating. Prosit! Would visit again.

              Very close to train station/transport but a longish walk to St Mark Sqr.. Doing it one way is ok - coming back, you would need the vaporetti. You must get a long term ticket if you plan to stay more than a couple of days. Pity breakfast did not include real juice of any kind - only an extremely watery resemblamce thereof. Asides from breakfast crew, the rest of the staff was somewhat unsociable, in spite of the fact we spoke the language well. Restaurant: only had a few drinks and coffee restaurant seems on the expensive side: 2 espressos and 2 glasses (smallish) housewine cost 20some euros. Internet (free) worked fine - try to make sure you get a password for more than 24 hours & avoid having to get new one at 12 midnight

              The location of the hotel is very good. It is just by the great canal and 5 minutes walking from the train station. Our room has canal view and it is very interesting--the river is just under our window! We booked half board room service and the dinners were fabulous! And there is a electric kettle to boil hot water for tea!!

              The only downside of the room with canal view is that there was much noise under our window early morning from the boats downloading/uploading goods for the hotel.

              Very good hotel close by the Train station so no extra travel time by boat. great location to walk through the city centre and explore. Staff is very friendly.

              Just don't understand the bathrooms in Italy (only hand shower and no shower curtain..)

              The Hotel is very close to the main railway station and on the Grand Canal. Our room had the most fantastic views over and along the Grand Canal. Breakfast was average but we did not have dinner there although the restaurant has fantastic views over the Canal.

              Room was really smelling, invaded by very important waste water odors from bathroom. Need to keep open the window. Design and decor are quite old and would advantagously need to be refreshed.

              Large very clean room and bathroom.

              Bad drain smell in corridors and reception of hotel. No refridgerator in room. Rooms at back of hotel (those without a canal view) are very noisy until late at night and early in the morning as street behind is the main thoroughfare from the train station to the Rialto.

              The location was excellent being near the bus station and walking distance when we arrived. Plenty of restaurants to choose from, snacks drinks etc also easily available. The hotel was very spacious for an italian city and the rooms had everything you needed. Everything worked well in the bathroom and there was plenty of space and the window opened. Our window view was lovely as although not directly facing the Grand Canal we could still see it and watch all that was going on. The continental breakfast was very good and apart from the usual there were hot bacon & eggs and the waiters were very helpful and polite. Everything was plentiful and you felt unhurried and relaxed, the terrace was on the Grand Canal and a lovely start to our day

              We arrived a little early and were told to come back at 2.00pm when our room would be ready. When we returned at 2.40pm our room was still not ready but we were shown to another one with no view and no lift! After I complained, we were told that our original room would be ready at 3.30pm if we were prepared to wait, so we did. The man on reception was not at all friendly and did not apologise for the incovenience and when I asked if we could have a complimentary cup of tea/coffee he said that this was not possible as the kitchens were closed and again did not seem worried or bothered about any of this.

              We loved the location of this hotel the room and bathroom were a good size and comfortable. We loved the view over the Grand Canal .The reviews that said it was a little noisy in the morning were right but it added to the atmosphere. The evening meal that was included in the price was very good.

              It was a little noisy in the morning from about 5 when deliveries were made to the hotel and along the canal.We actually thought it added to the atmosphere but that may have been different if we had been staying more than 1 night.

              I loved the location and the cleanliness of the hotel. I am a travel agent and will be sure to put the word out on this hotel.

              We were not impressed with the restaurant. It was very dark and dreary. Also, expensive.

              The hotel had an elegant and historic feeling, and the breakfast offered a nice view of the waterways. The rooms were spacious and very long in length. Also, the location of the hotel was very close to the train station, providing for an efficient means of transportation.

              The bathroom was a bit too antique, and the cappucinos offered at breakfast were not that great.
