    Superb

    A beautiful building, elegant communal areas and very relaxed atmosphere. Our room was comfortable with an impressive bathroom, quiet and clean. Staff had a ready smile and were very helpful, even on returning to the UK replying to an e-mail I sent.

    When we booked we wanted smoking rooms and also 1 of the rooms with 2 single beds. But when we arrived to the hotel we saw that none of our requirements had been took into account. The rooms were at the 3. floor and it was a disaster to go to this floor. The room service was poor, they never replace the materials that we finished.

    Exceptional

    The location of the hotel was excellent. There is so much to do in that section of Venice, Dorsoduro, that the ease of walking to these 'must sees' was a positive aspect of the hotel. The staff could not have been more helpful and pleasant!

    I guess this is a typical 3 star hotel. There was no lift/elevator, there was little storage space for clothing for our 8 day stay and little room in the bathroom for keeping important items out that we wanted to use on a daily basis. There were no tissues available in the room and the bed could use replacing as it has lost its firmness.

    Very good

    Great location in Venice close to a lot of reasonable priced restaurants and bars in a more student than tourist area. Most of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The free breakfast is very Italian with croissants, yoghurt and fruit but nothing hot or even any toast making facilities, so do not expect a big American or traditional English breakfast.

    It is not a modern or refurbished hotel, everything is traditionally styled which was great and added to the atmosphere but could have done with a bit of up keep. The bed was a bit hard for my liking and the rug and chair were threadbare. Plus for the price we paid it would have been nice for the room to have a view.

    Location was excellent, staff were very friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Venice.

    Just one little grumble - the double bed was made up of 2 singles.

    The extremely helpful and generous staff were what I loved most about the hotel. Its location was exactly right in terms of what I was looking for, and it was quiet and yet close to the vaparetto, etc. The breakfast was very good, and the room was clean and comfortable. The view off the balcony and outside our window was lovely. All in all, it was a wonderful stay! Thanks so much!

    I can't think of a single thing.

    Fabulous

    I loved the location away from all the tourists it was great to have a break. The atmosphere of the old building was wonderful.

    The breakfast was a bit disappointing compared to similar priced hotels I stayed in on the same trip in Rome, Verona, Ravelo, Naples. The coffee was from a push button machine and terrible, everywhere else coffee (espresso) was made freshly on request. There was also a very poor selection of fresh fruit just a fruit bowl.

    Very good

    The location was superb. The staff sent excellent directions for a first- time visitor to Venice. The bathroom was modern and clean and comfortable. The staff was efficient and helpful. The building oozes the charm of another era. The surroundings felt safe.

    As a solo female traveller I was hoping to find a more inviting public area on the main floor. It would take so little to make some cosmetic improvements to the bar and lounge -- a nice carpet, some low tables with handsome lamps, brighter lounge furniture. And I'd hoped to find a pleasant garden to sit in , but the green space was not set up that way.

    Superb

    The location is great, cLose to museums, interesting design shops, and restaurants. It is especially quiet and restful.

    The breakfasts were not very good, though the coffee machines are super. My room was very small, though clean, pretty, and well appointed.

    Wonderful location, friendly staff, super-clean, very comfortable.

    Air conditioning in my room was feeble--adequate at best.

    The staff is very friendly, nothing where missing, and we loved the antique decoration, very good breakfast and excellent location..we´ll be back

    They forgot to give us the free entrance to the casino and the free drink was not propose, but they compensate later, after we claim.

  • 9.2
    Superb

    The best was its location, which was very convenient to the activities I had planned. Beyond that, the location is in a part of Venice where real people live, so there was activity all the time. There are several great restaurants in the immediate vicinity too. Since the hotel is a converted palazzo, you can get the feel of what those older types of homes were once like, particularly in the large sitting room on the 2nd floor.

    Since it is a converted palazzo, it has a pretty intense set of stone stairs one climbs to get to most of the rooms.

    Fabulous

    I have stayed here before and like it. The hotel is warm, friendly, in a historic building, and very well placed for all that Venice has to offer. They were even kind enough to let me practise my halting Italian rather than insisting on speaking English! The room was a reasonable size and the bathroom, though compact, had both a bath and over-bath shower. A kettle in the room is a welcome addition to the usual Italian hotel offering.
