              • Near San Marco Museum and free street parking. The location is fantastic and the Hotel is well situated within walking distance to the Duomo and other main sites. The staff are friendly and owners went to great lengths to make us feel comfortable. The rooms are nice and clean, breakfast is good.

                Inside an old building, the bed was very uncomfortable.

              • The staff at check in was most informative about the sites & restaurants in the area, our stay included breakfast each morning was very good and personal service from owners was great. Rooms were cleaned daily.

                The hotel is not far away from the City Center.

              • Other turist attractions and good value. The price was very reasonable, the breakfast was buffet style and tasty, staff were extremely polite, friendly and accommodating. Our room was comfortable and the front desk was available 24 hours a day and had excellent suggestions for food. Our hosts were just superb.

                Hotel is a little far from the railway station.
