          • Good location nice facilies, near water taxi and the breakfast was romantic specially having in venezia at the canal. The hotel was clean, the lobby area was inviting, large, and comfortable, the staff were very helpful and accommodating, and also spoke great English. Our room was relatively large, and refrigerator was not cold, barley even cool and the restaurant portrayed as excellent was ordinary at best.

            Not much of a view from our windows and wiFi only available on charge basis. The service is bad, bathroom is old fashioned and the elevator is tiny. The entire facility is very dated and in need of renovation.

          • The location was the best, view from the hotel room of the Grand Canal was great and staff were on the whole very polite and helpful. The bed was firm and comfortable, breakfast was amazing.

            The air conditioning was barely functional.

          • The location is awesome and breakfast is also good and the eating place is near the canal.

            Hotel felt dirty, the staff at the front desk in the lobby was rude and not very helpful, the bathtub in the bedroom was kind of old.

          • Location is very good and Venice is gorgeous. The staff is helpful and knowledgeable, hot water is accessed by pulling string and waiting a minute, no problem, the restaurant is excellent.

            The actual street is on is kind of sleazy, low priced shops and 'rooms to let, the hotel didnt look very impressive on the outside. Breakfast is ok and reception wasn't very friendly.

          • Good location near to bus, very convenient to the railway station and a wonderful nearby reataurant is tre archi, right on the canaregio canal. Best thing about hotel is is close to the way back to the mainland, the service is nice and the rooms are a reasonable size for Venice. Breakfast is quite good, friendly English speaking staff would recommend to all my friends.

            Dirty and old furniture.

Very nice place to stay during your visit of Venice, the lobby area is lovely, and the restaurant looks very charming, the staff are great and very helpful. The bathroom didnt suit the beautiful room, especially the bathtub.

          • The location was very convenient, our room overlooked the Grand Canal and was very comfortable, the nearby grocery was good. This hotel was fine, the lobby area was nice and the staff were very helpful and accommodating, and also spoke great English. The bathroom was spacious and newer than i expected, breakfast was adequate, the dinner was delicious.

            Worst service and almost a fatality because of this, bath/shower facilities poor. Bedside lamp was broken, restaurant food was ok, not great, not bad.

          • The location is pretty good and great value, close to the train station and on the Grand Canal. This hotel is very nice, the lobby area is lovely, and the restaurant looks very charming, the service could not have been better. The rooms are clean, the Guinness bar is €5 for a large beer and breakfast is rich by Italian standards.

            The beds are really bad and the view stinks, the window faced onto the outside wall of an adjacent building, staff is unfriendly.
