Convenient location. Hotel needs updating. Breakfast poor.Posted Sep 15, 2006
2 rooms, 1 week. Superior 18 (double) & 21 (twin), 4th floor (no lift). Rooms small & cramped, little storage space, dated decoration, comfy beds, small ensuites, showers work, old but working TVs, no tea/coffee facilities. 18: small terrace & effective A/C. 21: no terrace & A/C not as efficient. Showers need big clean, dirty. Shower door in 21 broken. Convenient, quiet location down alley (no view). Rialto Bridge close. Lobby has A/C but not always on. Deposit boxes in lobby. Staff polite & friendly. One receptionist smokes, lobby air unpleasant when on duty. Breakfast room tiny, cramped & hot, insufficient tables. Once queued for15 mins. Bfast food poor. Bread, cereals & coffee OK. Horrible red drink masquerading as juice. Tinned fruit in syrup, bland tasting sliced cheese & pots of sweetened yogurt. Over Rialto Bridge is great food market, wonderful fresh fruit etc, why none available at breakfast (instead of tinned apology for fruit) is a mystery. Needs redecoration on stairs & communal areas. Carpet threadbare & dirty, needs replacing. No lounge or restaurant. Couldnt find smoke alarm in rooms. Couldnt see smoke alarms on every floor. No fire escape plans. Fire hose on wall & think we had fire doors. Could escape to terrace from R18 but from R21 you would be stuck. Fire engine couldnt get down small alley. Assume arrangements in place to put out fires & rescue people! Not value for money. Needs update to todays standards & to address possible fire safety issues.

Will not go backPosted Sep 6, 2006
Staff was not helpful at all, if you come back to the hotel after midnight it seems a burden to get the porter to open the door. Staff was more interested in selling you services from it seems like partner businesses as opposed to giving advice on transport to hotel that is practical and economical. Had to get my own info outside of hotel. Room was old and run down, mold in the shower and shower door broken. There are better hotels for the price, right in Venice.

Ciao Italia!Posted Jun 27, 2006
This hotel was nice. It was hidden back in an alley behind the Rialto Bridge, but very easy to find! Our room was on the top floor, five flights of stairs up! Although the room was small, as we've heard most rooms are in Italy, it was quite nice. There was a little bouquet of orchids on the bed when we arrived. I thought I was on my honeymoon again! The breakfast room was pretty and they made an awesome cappuchino! I miss Italy already!

Better than mostPosted Jan 11, 2006
By European hotel standards, this was better than average. The location was ideal being right next to rialto bridge. Breakfast buffet had everything, the room had everything. It was a nice stay.

A Graspo De UaPosted Nov 13, 2004
Room did not match description on expedia site. What they say on the site as room description is not what you get. Rooms are dirty. Hotel is centrally located but in a back alley. Out the window you have a view of nothing but some dirty restaurant kitchens. Would not recommend staying here.

Very small and dead bugs on the wallPosted Nov 9, 2004
Our room was about the size of the bed and 2 feet on each side. The walls had the blood stains of about 2 dozen dead bugs and mosquitoes. The shower stall was 6 inches in front of the toilet so you had to sit on it side ways. On the good side though, very close to the Rialto Bridge
