We spent two nights here. Very comfortable, very clean. Good breakfast - juice, cereals, fruit, eggs, bacon, sausages - even toast!. A range of usual croissant and pastries are available as well. Staff will make your tea/ coffee and bring to the table. Lovely quaint place, with big open room for reading, furnished with lovely antique style furniture etc. Mini bar and safe in room, also tea and coffee making facilities - this was lovely! The safe however is simply sitting in an old wardrobe, perhaps not as secure as it could be?? Bathroom is good - we could pick a decent bathroom at ten paces by this stage of our trip! A bonus is that every afternoon they serve tea/ biscuits/ peanuts between 4 and 6, so it makes a lovely break after a busy day before heading out to eat later. Easy and pleasant walk to St Mark's and very easy to hop on the vaporetto ( less than 5 minutes away). We arrived by train in late afternoon and got a water taxi to venue - cost 60 Euro (pricey I know!), but, we arrived at the 'personal' water landing and were greeted by hotel staff. This also gave a taste of Venice on the water to begin our two and half days. It was also easier than us negotiating the vaporetto and finding the hotel when first arriving. Staff were very obliging with us leaving our bags to pick up later in the day even though we had checked out. Internet access available via card at cost. Hotel will book concerts etc and give you tickets immediately - very convenient. This area seems to be 'quieter' than others and perhaps less 'touristy' (if there is such a thing in Venice!). Would happily stay here again.
