            Fabulous location and very clean. Really nice building tastefully designed

            Breakfast was very average and having repeatedly asked for them to reserve 2 seats for an event before arriving they failed miserably. I guess our wedding day was only important to us!

            Very disappointed, booked this hotel after looking at reviews on Booked.net. the hotel staff were not very friendly as soon as i stepped in man in reception very grumpy and unapproachable. got to my room had a stink smell to it, the bathroom was worse. Nothing modern about the hotel. breakfast was disappointing just basics and everymorning glasses and plates smell...when ask for coffee you had to request a few times before you get it. even though the breakfast place wasnt busy. I have stayed in hotels all over the world and book myself into 4 star or 5 star places. this cant be classified as even one star. dont know why this place has been given a good rating. terrible reception staff a real put off and i had two kids with me.

            Room was very clean and looked nice. Hotel was in general clean. Nice breakfast buffet.

            Bed was two twins pushed together, difficult to snuggle/cuddle with wife. Bathroom did not have proper shower. Instead, there was a tub with a hand held wand. Standing and spraying intermittently was chilly and uncomfortable. Filling the tub and bathing was time consuming and used much more water than necessary. Also, step down from tub was awkward and in fact dangerous. Wife and I both slipped (thankfully did not fall) and banged our knees on tile surround. A hose lay on the floor of the lobby from behind the reception desk to the outside of the hotel during our entire two day stay.

            Great staff and beautiful room. While I'm not positive, I think we somehow got one of the best (or the best) rooms in the hotel. We were both very pleased with everything. The breakfast each morning was wonderful but most notable was the friendliness and helpfulness of each and every staff member we came in contact with. Thank you for making our visit a memorable one.

            If there's anything we'd want to see improved it's the cost. While we loved everything about the hotel, we thought it might be a bit more expensive than we'd expect. That said, we knew this going into it so really not much to complain out......just a thought really.

            Location, location, location. Ruzzini was the perfect base from which to explore Venice. Close enough to St Mark's to walk in under ten minutes; far enough way to avoid throngs in the square. While still very much in the middle of Venice, we felt more a part of "residential" Venice than "tourist" Venice (which may have been in part because of the timing - in high tourist season I gather there is no area that feel "residential"....The staff were very helpful, and the rooms we were given had the canal view we'd requested. We could see the gondolas glide by from both the bedroom or the bathroom. The rooms were spacious; one of them had a separate "reading nook" which my son monopolized. The bathrooms were very clean and modern.

            The two downsides were relatively hard mattresses, which would be fine for those who like hard beds, and the same breakfast buffet choices every day. After five days of the same breakfast it got a little old, but we gathered that most people don't stay that long.
