    3/5

    Great location, thats all..

    Great location. But the hotel is old, run down and need of repairs. Hotel staff is not very friendly. Very small rooms.

    4/5 Good

    Perfect place for us.

    The hotel is conveniently located across the canal from the train station in San Croce. For us as 1st timers to Venice and not knowing the water transportation system, that was a big plus. Both public and private water taxis are at your fingertips for convenient transit to and from the landmark sites in San Marco. Service and the daily breakfast display was exceptional, including the additional roof-top open terrace sky bar for afternoon cocktails, sunset viewing and dinner. The rooms are a little out-dated and could use some refreshing, but clean and probably similar to most in Venice. With all the other conveniences and offerings, the room part can be easily overlooked. Your really not there to be sitting in your room. And for the extra money, I'd recommend a room with the canal view and small terrace. It was great for watching all the water taxi activity across at the train station. Overall it was a very good to great stay for our two nights.

    Arrived at 2 pm room not ready Porter insisted on taking our bags as we walked behind him smashed bags up stairs damaging glass inside. Mosquitos in room All in all we stayed in 6 hotel and rated them all perfect,except this 1 which was meant to be a treat for our last night.

    5/5 Excellent

    This hotel's location was fantastic. Close to buses, and less than 5 minute walk to the train station. I appreciated the e-mail with hotel location and directions on how to reach hotel from airport, bus or train before we arrived. Water taxi stops and gondolas right next to hotel. Beautiful view of the Grand Canal from our room. Very clean. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. Had a fantastic dinner on the hotel's roof top restaurant overlooking the Grand Canal. Great way to start our Italy vacation!
