Great spot.We had 6 nights at start of September.
If you fly in you can get an express bus to the bus station for 5euro and it is one bridge and about 700 metres to the continental.
Water taxi to door is 110 euro although it is a similar walk from air terminal to water taxis as it is from bus station to Continental.
The room we had was adequate(bigger than the 4 star we stayed in London)the bathroom small but well appointed and it was clean(not my choice of decoration...but hey)We were fortunate to have a corner room with canal views from all windows.....magnificent.The pillows were small...the only negative I can come up with.
The ferry is about a 5 minute walk,and then about ten minutes to St Marks or the Rialto.
We tended to ferry to a major attraction and walk back having drinks lunch or dinner in the back streets, which is the wonderful part of Venice....the major attractions are outstanding but the backstreet cafes and bars are steeped in tradition(also find real artisans here).The continental would be an hours walk to most places or 3 if stopping at a few bars.
Breakfast was good and we had no trouble getting tables on the canal........it can at times get a little Fawlty Towers but if you take it the right way it becomes amusing.
The front staff were fine,perhaps to the point,but we had no issues.
I will add there appeared to be a lot of Tours and they seemed to be on the wingy side.One american said what do we do if there is fire alluding to the corridors,I told him follow the instructions.I also read that the foyer toilets were not upto scratch,fair dinkum,they were alright.
Maybe we were lucky but I would have no hesitation going back.
