On entering the main hotel, you see a fantastic charming old style Venetian building. You are then told your room is in the annex.
OK not an issue until you realise it is 100M away and the porter takes your cases. No WiFi here.
I stayed in an upstairs room which had a vault wood beam ceiling but no view and a little noisy from the main road into Venice. My colleague stayed in the downstairs room which had steel beams in the ceiling and didn't look as attractive.
Hopefully most of these little issues will be resolved with the building of the new extension?
We arrived from a cruise, took the people mover to Piazzale Roma and walked 10 min from there, very easy to get to, even toting our suitcases. Saved on expensive water taxi ride. Our rooms were not ready since we arrived early, but were able to store our luggages and start exploring the city. We were offered a free trip to Murano to visit the glass factory which was fun and interesting. Once returned, our rooms were all ready and check in was very efficient. We were a big group with 5 rooms, all were wonderful. Rooms with view of canal are bigger and very comfortable, worth the extra money. Breakfasts had wide variety of choices for everyone. Expresso drinks they offer with breakfast were excellent! Entire staff always cheerful, friendly and helpful, made us feel at home the entire time. Location is great not only for being on the canal and proximity to everything, but being able to sit in the courtyard of the hotel and watch the activity of the canal was wonderful and relaxing. Loved every minute of our stay, would definitely stay at this hotel again if visiting Venice.
First off this hotel was in a convenient location, near to cruise ship port, train station, and bus station for easy transport to airport. It was also on a quiet street right across from a waterway, which we could view from our room. The courtyard area where you dined for breakfast was also beautiful and tranquil. In addition we found the hotel staff to be helpful and pleasant. Our bed was extremely firm but it didn't inhibit us from getting a very good night sleep. Our only complaint was that there wasn't a US hook up like you might find in other high end European hotels, but if you travel with adapters, this shouldn't be a problem.
Easy to get to from Pia. Roma. I liked knowing I had quick and easy access to the airport bus in the morning. Room was smallish, but the worst features was the bed. Very uncomfortable mattress and pillows. I was only here for one night....so doable. My husband liked the hotel and said he could have stayed a couple of days. Front desk staff was very helpful. Continental breakfast in the morning....can get fresh cappuccino.
Good value for money.
The hotel is beautiful, tastefully elegant, with the right modern touches, it's perfect location at the rear of Venice means you discover more of this wonderful city's streets and bridges, also being close to train station and bus station it's easily accessible, by other means than by water, even though travel by water is a must. It's also easy to find when you get lost as you just head for the station. We had a fantastic romantic few days.

At the start of the Grand Canal, Santa Croce is set immediately across from the bus station and railway station. It is a peaceful quarter adjacent to, but largely unaffected by the visitor hubbub. The picturesque Ponte degli Scalzi is a great place for watching the busy canal traffic and there are many fines churches to explore off the beaten tourist track. The Rialto Bridge is only a 10-minute walk or boat ride away.
