Room and bathroom was clean and well appointed, and bed was comfortable. The breakfast was great with full complement of hot items, fruits, cheese and pastries. Although I didn't partake, the mimosas were a nice touch. The patio out the back was beautiful and relaxing for an afternoon/evening glass of wine. Negatives: I couldn't keep the windows open even though weather was nice and cool due to people loitering outside the restaurant across the street, not to mention their cigarette smoke wafting in. Best to ask for a room facing the back (canal view) or side alley. Despite this minor inconvenience, I would definitely recommend this hotel, and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

great location. 2 minutes from st marks cathedral. very nice breakfast room overlooking small canal. cool patio bar also overlooking small canal.

Friendly staff. Good breakfast. Bed was comfortable and quiet location. We all slept well. Close to San Marco and a lot of shopping. I would rate this a 4.7

This is a very lovely hotel located in the best central location. It is a 2 minute walk from San Marco Square. The rooms are HUGE, the staff is very accommodating and polite, and the breakfast options are plentiful. Would definitely recommend to stay here. As part of the VIP hotel experience, the hotel provided us with a free trip to Murano Island to visit a glass factory. This included a free private taxi transfer! When we first checked in, we were also given free Bellinis which was awesome!

The lobby is very small but hotel it self is really nice excellent breakfast, beautiful small patio next to canal , room was small and has blocked windows

This hotel/bed and breakfast was so BAD we left after an hour of being in the hotel, WITHOUT A REFUND. I paid 3 nights upfront and just walked out. It is not clean, the staff was unfriendly and at one point called me a silly American. The air conditioner didn't work, No mini frig, no ice, shower was filthy with flies! The room resembled that of a freshman dorm bedroom.
