Overall we had a pleasant stay at the hotel. The room was clean and in an excellenet location. Only a ten minute walk from the airport bus and train station. The only downside was a few mosquitoes in the room and poor shower pressure. But, overall a good stay.

Lovely old hotel and great location
A really lovely old hotel in a great location. Very close to one of the best squares in Vence, Campo Santa Margherita. There are quite a few steps up to the rooms so that may not suit some people. The staff were very helpful especially as my booking had come through wrongly (probably my fault) but was sorted out without any drama.

Historic Hotel in Venice
The hotel was very far from any of the main attractions we wanted to see. The room was nice, but the bathroom was not in great condition. There were cracked tiles, rust stains, and build-up around the fixtures. The staff was cold and not very helpful. It was okay for the price, but I would not stay again.

One of the most beautiful hotels I’ve ever stayed at. The rooms are typical Venetian style and were warm and cozy for our winter holiday. I would definitely recommend staying here!

The hotel room was ok in size. The bed and pillows were really comfortable which is a priority when you have walked for miles. Breakfast was ok. Staff polite and friendly. Really like the area of Dorsoduro as not too busy like other areas but close enough to restaurants and sites. There is a good bar a minutes walk away from hotel.

The old building is lovely and very well located. We were not very pleased with the service. The gentleman who did our check-in was formal and correct. The lady who attended the night shift was openly rude. When my husband asked her if she could confirm the boat schedule for us she reluctantly went to check it out for us while she said that we could just "check it online ourselves". We did not feel very welcome in general while we interacted with her.
