                  only the location was good.

                  Price, services, breakfast was poor.

                • Family with children

                  The location was great. It's right on the canal at athe Rialto bridge, so close to all the shops and touristy restaurants (which are too expensive!). So stay off the beaten path to pay at least 4 Euros less per dish.

                  The room had inadequate heat - it was a very noisy ceiling air-conditioner/heater. Heat rises. So, the room was very warm at the ceiling. The rest of the room was far too cold. The smell of stale cigarettes, and the kitchen also blew in from the room, which was awful.

                  The location was excellent and if you got a room with a window to the canals, you would know what I'm talking about.

                  The rooms were very small and cramped.

                  This hotel has a lot of character. It is old, rather shabby but in a quaint and characterful sense. It was quiet and comfortable (we had a superior room at the back) and completely central to wherever we wanted to go. The buffet breakfast was generous and excellent and meant we did not need to bother with stopping for lunch!

                  Our bedroom initially had a terrible smell of cigarette smoke inspite of a notice asking guest not to smoke in the room. We did not ask to change because we had made a late booking and assumed the hotel to be full. We had to have the window open for quite a while, and after the first night the smell lessened.

                  Beautiful location, setting was beautiful as well. Quaint---what you would picture as an older Italian hotel.

                  The clerk that worked upon our arrival was a bit rude, and did not like friends visiting us at our hotel, demanding to see their passports although they were not guests there. Other than the first clerk, the rest of the staff was outstanding and very helpful when we had questions or needed help. I however did NOT like that we made a reservation that required no payment, with free cancellation and the hotel immediately put a hold on the funds for the full amount on my visa. Be prepared for that.

                • Family with children

                  We liked the venetian feel about the hotel. We appreciated the bag service to our rooms. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom very clean, large and luxiourious. The hotel is well located (just near the rialto bridge and local restaurants)

                  My only criticism was the size of the actual room was very small for a family of 4 (incl 2 teenagers). There was no room for our suitcases and this was uncomfortable as you needed to access these. The other issue was no free wifi to your rooms. This was an inconvenience relative to other hotels while on vacation. The public access to wifi in the lobby was limited to certain hours of an evening and when we tried to access this; the system broke down. So this was an inconvenience for us.

                  Location is wonderful. Restaurant right out in front offered great food and amazing views of Grand Canal + Rialto Bridge.

                  The smell in front of hotel was at times difficult, especially when trying to enjoy a dinner.

                  Convenient to city center, scenic location, convenient transportation to mainland and airport (vaporetto and Alilagune stops nearby), free wireless internet in hotel lobby, hot breakfast. Staff kindly printed my boarding pass for me.

                  Room needed better lighting.

                  Proximity to Rialto bridge! Room really clean and stag friendly. We didn't have a canal view but our room was nice and quiet and bathroom was modern and spotlessly clean.

                  the breakfast was excellent.

                  the room - it was a single room - was very small and did not have windows that could open.

                  The hotel location was perfect--right next to the Rialto Bridge--right in the middle of the action. The breakfast provided was very nice. The accommodations were great.

                  Could hear a woman walking in high heels in room above us. It was very loud. Also, the people in the room next to us were very loud, and people were out in the corridor making noise all through the night. As far as hotels are concerned this was the noisiest of our 3 month trip.

                  Excellent location a few doors away from Rialto bridge and an easy walk to San Marco. Very close to water bus stop which made getting there convenient. No elevator and small room, but that is expected in Venice. The breakfast buffet had eggs, bacon, meat, cheese and an assortment of breads which was more than expected. Expensive (expected in Venice), but well worth the price because of location and convenience!

                  They gave us the best hotel of the room for 4 people (the only one in the hotel) which has an exellent view of the canal. On the 1st night, we had just dinner at our balcony with a full view of the canal and an incredible experience

                  The rooms are a little bit old but it is fine

                  The location, right near the water and Gondola's, the bridge and Rialto Mercato. Lovely waterside restaurants just outside. Very nice!

                  The price was way too high! You have to decide if you want to spend nearly triple the price to be in that lovely location.
