Great views and quaint style room

It was within walking distance from the bus drop off and to the pier.

It’s good. Great location near train station and water bus

Great location, easy to get to from train station. Nice rooms. Sweet roof garden restaurant.

Location! location! location! excellent. Right on the canal with easy access near train, bus, cruise port

All good but only one channel in English everything else was great.

Nice hotel close to vehicles drop off. Rooms are small as well as bathroom.

Great location near train station and water bus lines

Right on the Grand Canal and close to the rail road station

Disappointed room was very small..ants in bathroom.. very tight in shower

Staff was excellent and friendly. Purchased the Dinner on Arrival” and it was a rip off. We could have walked in the restaurant and ordered the same dinner cheaper. However, our waiter, Enrico was a delight.

Fantastic location for a quick visit. My wife and I were only in Venice for one day before we left the country so we needed a location that was easily accessible to both the airport and all the sights. This hotel is only a 5-minute walk from the bus and taxi terminal, and 20-25 minutes from the Rialto Bridge and St. Mark's Square. The staff checked us in early and was very helpful in getting us bus tickets back to the airport for our early flight. My wife loved the look of the room. The only issue was the comfort of the beds - the mattresses were clearly in need of replacement, and we had to ask for extra pillows because the two we were provided had absolutely no support. Overall, we were happy with our visit.

Really old hotel, its close to train station Santa Maria, but its far from everything and water taxis are kind of expensive.

Hotel Sky restaurant was very good for the view at dinner. The food and entertainment were good and the service was ok.

Good location on the canal. Windows could be opened for nice experience. However, windows were not soundproof, so noisy until everything closes. Room was small, but very well appointed-Very Venetian. Bed and pillows were very hard and uncomfortable for me, but not my husband. Loved the common areas. Good breakfast. Good service with the exception of the bartender in the lounge on the roof. He was extremely rude.

My husband and I spent two nights at this hotel. The room was clean and comfortable, breakfast buffet was better than expected, and location was good (close to train terminal). However, we wouldn't recommend this hotel because some front desk MALE staff have very bad attitude toward guests, especially those who don't speak Italian. On several occasions when we walk up to one of them, they would completely ignore us and walk away to do something else. When we ask a question, they would speak to us in a rude confrontational manner. All other staff we have met at the hotel are friendly except for the male staff at the front desk. We would not be coming back to this hotel.

Great Location......nice room.......excellent staff...

Happy with the hotel lovely boutique hotel clean and great location , staff is helpful. Venice has the best pizza and pasta shops
