The hotel has a good location near the train station Santa Lucia. This is extremely convenient for travellers ariving by train because carrying one's luggage over the steep bridges of Venice / using water bus with luggage during the busy season may not be an easy exercise.
In contrast with what one may expect from accommodation near the train station, there are no homeless people or "weird people" in the surroundings of the hotel. There is no noice in the rooms comming from the outside as the hotel has new windows. Vaporretto stop is just 2 minutes from the hotel and water taxi stop is just outside the hotel. Location is clearly one of the most important assets of this hotel.
The hotel is very clean and the bedlinen are changed on daily basis. There is adjustable air condition / heating in every room. There are two small rooms for breafast. There is a buffet for breakfast and the choice is adequate to approx. 5 day stay (you can eat something else each day).
The staff of the hotel is extremelly welcoming and helpful with orientation in the city as well as with booking tickets for concerts etc.
We visited the hotel during the Carneval. As wearing a costume was obligatory for some events occured during the Carneval and we did not manage to arrange one before our arrival to Venice we were glad that the hotel lent us cloaks which we could wear over own clothes.
I would certainly choose hotel Antiche Figure again if comming back to Venice.
