staff was wonderful. Room was average. nice breakfast. location was across from train station. Rialto Bridge and St. Marc's square were further than expected. Overall nice stay, very clean hotel and again wonderful staff. Great veiw from roof top bar.
We wanted to book a hotel in Venice that is close to public transportation and not too far from all the popular attractions in Venice. This hotel is at a perfect location. We took a taxi from the airport to Piazzale Roma and it took a 5-minute walk to the hotel. The next day again it took 5 minutes to get to People Mover to the cruise ship terminal. The hotel itself is typical smallish European style and with friendly staff. The elevator is tiny and it took 2 runs to transport all of luggage to the room. Our room can accommodate 4 people and it's relatively spacious. The bathroom is clean and spacious too, a bit annoying without the shower curtain. There is no air condition but was not needed at the time we visited (early May). Two large windows open up to a canal with lots of fresh air if needed. The breakfast is a steal with 3 Euro for each person.
Ideally located near the Piazzale Roma, this hotel doesn't need you to either trek for miles with your case, squeeze onto a vaparetto or spalsh out on an expensive water taxi. It is a little hidden but if you follow the Grand Canal to the Carlton on the Grand (the Carlton Capri's sister hotel), you'll find a small gate. Go through & follow round to the left & there it is, in a small square with a water-pump in the centre.
The room we had - 201 - was comfortable & quiet. It wasn't huge and was pretty basic but it was clean with a decent bathroom (good shower) & enough power outlets for charging phones, cameras etc.
Breakfast is very simple & nothing to write home about. Would definitely advise to go find something more substantial outside the hotel but the coffee is excellent & staff are friendly & attentive.
Mario did everything he could to provide us with a good experience: from meeting us at one of the piers and showing us how to find the place, to changing our room to the first floor due to the amount of luggage we had, to assisting us in confirming our flight when the airlines lost our information, to looking up the night boat schedule to the bus depot due to our very early flight and discounting our payment because we had to leave before breakfast.

The Bed & Breakfast Residenza degli Angeli is located in an spectacular area in the historic centre of Venice, a few steps …More
Our stay was 1 night before & after our 8 day cruise around the Mediterranean. We arrived at the hotel early the morning of check in, about 10:30am and they help our bags for us until the room was ready at 1:00pm. This was a really nice feature as carrying bags around Venice would NOT be fun at all. The location is very nice on the Grand Canal, a water taxi will bring you right to the hotel, the train & bus stops are also only 2 bridges away, which in Venice is very close.
The rooms were smaller but nice & clean. They are functional over luxurious, but perfect for sleeping and having a shower. The breakfast in the morning was also very nice. Staff is extreamly friendly and helpful and full of useful information.
If you are looking for a nice place to stay as a base of operations... this is excellent... if you want the lap of luxury and elegance... I would look elsewhere.
I would stay here again.
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.
