Despite some reviews, I was surprised by how much I liked the hotel. It’s more like a hostel but it was spacious, comfortable, clean, and not too far from the overly touristy parts of Venice. The front desk was efficient and understanding (when I lost a room key). I loved the bar. The woman who tends the cafe/bar and maintains an ongoing soliloquy, makes an excellent cappuccino and Aperol sprit. Sure it’s sparse and lacks the luxury of the grander hotels, but it suited me.
