Booked this after personal recommendation and then reading reviews. Would echo comments re location - is in a quiet area next to a canal. It is good to avoid the crush of the tourist attractions to have a more peaceful place to go back to. It is less than a minutes walk to a co-op supermarket and there are loads of restaurants within 5 minutes walk.
The walk to the main attractions can take as long or as short as you like. With the mass of churches, squares, dead ends if you are not in a hurry. Alternativly the water bus stop is 5 mins walk in either direction or for 50cents each get the gondola across the Grand Canal to the Rialto Market.
Had fantastic service - we let them know in advance I was a coeliac and Alexandra bought some gluten free rolls and muesli for breakfast. There was cheese, meat, yogurt,cereals available , fresh croissants and pastries were provided as well.
The only downside is the rooms were not well sound proofed - could hear other residents all too clearly!
Overall excellent value and would return.
