Pluses - great location, great location, great location. Has a bit of a charm to it as well. WiFi works well, hot water in the tap, gets toasty warm with the heating, clean and well maintained rooms. Breakfast starts 715 am which is good if you are traveling out early. But.

Very small rooms. No elevator, so pack light or be prepared to drag your luggage up flights of stairs. I guess it’s ok if you only need somewhere to rest your head at night. If you have a room on the same side as the hotel’s restaurant, be prepared to hear music, talking, and

The hotel is really nice, has a nice breakfast, clean rooms and a perfect location..Near both San Marco square and Rialto bridge..the only downside for me was the extremely tiny bathroom..it was so tiny to the extent of being dysfunctional..but not all the rooms were the same.

No they overlook a canal but there’s no room there for a taxi dock. The hotel is excellent at explaining which stop to get off on The Grand Canal then it’s just a short walk to their front door. I recommend catching the public ferry which we did from the train station. It’s easy & you can buy ferry pass to cover the days you are staying for other ferry trips like to Burano/Murano. The private taxi will charge allot one way and sits very low to the dock so you’re lifting luggage up out of the boat onto the dock. Ferry just walk on & off wheeling luggage behind you.

The hotel is in Venice town where there are no roads for cars however there are car park areas on the outskirts the cost is around 18 euro per day, I would recommend parking at the train station or taking the ferry over to Venice and leaving the car at the airport. The charges at both of these will be around 10 euro a day dependent on when you book and how many days you are staying. Hope that helps.
