Good clean hotel, excellent location, lovely staff
Posted Jun 26, 2016
While we were very happy with this hotel and would stay there again, there are a couple of features you should know about. First, wifi is not available in the rooms but only in the lounge, which is upstairs on the first floor (keep in mind that in Europe, first floor is above the ground floor). Second, if you book a "classic" room, you will be on the ground floor. Upper floors are where the "luxury" rooms (ie. More expensive) are located. We had to keep our window draperies closed in our ground floor room so that pedestrians outside would not be able to see in. Otherwise, our room was very comfortable and spacious. Staff was super friendly and helpful. The breakfast included was basic, but sufficient. As in any tourist destination, staff tended to recommend restaurants that were pretty generic and tourist oriented. So, if you're looking for something on a higher lever, be skeptical and check reviews. Venice has lots and lots of great restaurants, wine bars, and snack bars and they're all within reach in this compact island city. One of the best features of this hotel is its location - easy access to the vaporetto stop and train station.
