Amazing hotel with very modern facilities in Venice. Never expected to have a great view of the grande canal, but I did! There are many outdated and overly priced hotels in Venice but this hotel is worth every penny. I can't recommend it enough specially if you get a grande canal view.

We booked this hotel based on the number of good reviews, and they weren't wrong!
Its is rated as two star so don't expect to bump into George Clooney in the reception but many of its features are worthy of three stars.
Its close to the bus station, only 5-10 minutes walk depending upon how many bags you have (only two bridges to negotiate), but a bit further from the train station. Nothing is very far from the main attractions in Venice and the hotel is close enough without having to fight your way through the tourists to get there.
The breakfast is the usual Italian coffee, buns, croissants, jam, Nutella :) , cereal and yogurt; but there's plenty of it and the breakfast lady is very friendly and cheerful.
Our room, 36, was on the second floor at the end of the corridor so was a bit bigger than the others and the bathroom had a window - no big deal, just nice to have. The room itself was comfortable, with aircon and an opening window with shutters as well. There is no fridge (but then it is two star). The room was cleaned to a good standard daily, the housekeeper was also very cheerful. The only downside to the room, we felt, was the bed was too hard for us - but that is down to taste and you can't please all the guests all the time. We were there in late October so can't comment on what the room is like in the heat of summer. (I wouldn't go to Venice in the summer anyway, it would be far too hot and way too crowded which would spoil the experience).

The hotel is in a good, central location. If not arriving by boat, it can be difficult to find as the road entrance is down a small ally with no signs indicating it is there. It has all the facilities you would want from a hotel and was comfortable enough, although we found the bed a bit hard. The staff are fantastic, very friendly and helpful with recommendations for sightseeing if you're not sure. We spent three lovely nights there and would recommend it as a place to stay.

Fabulous hotel. Beautifully situated on a canal. Near a water bus stop. We stayed for 5 nights and everything couldn't have been more perfect. Breakfast more than we expected-loved the fresh pancakes each morning. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Home of the Rialto Market, San Polo is the busiest 'sestiere' (district) after San Marco. For local colour, great little shops, bars and cafes, the Rialto market area is a must. Dining on the Grand Canal next to the iconic Rialto Bridge is a romantic Venetian cliché. Near the bridge, the Ca' Pesaro is home to the Museum of Modern Art while 16th-century masterpieces are on show at the Frari church and Scuola Grande di San Rocco.
