A few issues
Convenient location and cold air conditioning. Nice sized suite for a small family. The beds were really uncomfortable. There were a lot of building maintenance issues, including a broken (and unmonitored) front door. There were no representatives from the hotel on the grounds from early in the evening until about 9am. This seemed like a security concern to me.

Fair 4.0
Very poor quality and definitely not worth money
This hotel was exceptionally disappointing, for just under €300 it was not a great experience and to be honest I would have cancelled and gone elsewhere if it wasn’t for non refundable policy ( still angry at this as should be refundable if not what advertised) but I can now understand why. On arriving the receptionist was not very polite and we did encounter some rude behaviour on asking some basic questions regarding the room and the views which were shown on the website. The views were not as shown so pretty disappointing. Overall the facilities are exceptionally basic, no receptionist after 7:00pm, no real facilities, room just smelt of fried food so don’t open the windows as just makes it 10 times worse and although the room was ok decor quite bold the bathroom was a disgrace. The bathroom had a bath with a hole in it, no proper shower just an over bath unit, live wires showing with a bit of paper hanging over the cover and looks like it seriously needs updating as you’ll see in pictures attached. Additionally the beds were hard and cheap, tables were chipboard with table cloth covers, wardrobe different even have handles on them as they had broke off. For the money this Hotel is not good at all and to be honest I would struggle to justify €50 euros for it. you need to seriously review this as not what I feel is what your advertising.

Stay Somewhere Else!
When we first checked in on Saturday 10/06, the older gentleman at the front desk was rude and not helpful. We understand the buildings are historical and perhaps impossible to install elevators from the ground floor up to rooms but the inconvenience of Not having elevators nor a Bell Person to assist with the luggage is inconvenient and a struggle to lug your belongings up numerous flights of stairs with absolutely No assistance. Also, the front desk is Not on ground level so you need to haul bags up steps to check in then back down to walk across to another building and up 3 flights of stairs to your room. This should be public knowledge to better prepare those coming to the hotel. The hotel also had a stench coming from the toilets that spread through the corridors of the hotel. Not a pleasant smell. In the morning, they came to your door with an extremely heavy silver platter filled with continental breakfast - hand it to you at the door - and expect you to carry it in the room yourself. The young blonde lady would not carry it in the room for you. Also, the door to the main front entrance of our hotel, ground level, did not securely lock; the hardware to place the key in was totally disassembled leaving a gaping hole in the wooden door allowing anyone to enter without a key. So much for security! The ONLY good thing about the hotel is the Location! WiFi Never worked! Lack of security and cleanliness throughout the establishment was unacceptable for the price.

Great hotel in the heart of Venice
Our stay was enjoyable. The room was as advertised and comfortable for the Italian standard at our price point. We had been in Italy for 8 days and this was our third city. We were on the 4th floor and still could hear some street noise but the most noise came from the neighboring room. The walls seemed paper thin and blocked next to no sound. But we never had a problem during the evening. Everyone was respectful of the hour and we had no troubles sleeping. One querk was the range in times we received our hand delivered breakfast. We requested 0800( the earliest available) and it’s came at 0730, 0745 and 0805. That being said the food was very good and we quickly came accustomed to having breakfast could me to us. Overall I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in the heart of Venice. OH! the best part of our room was the excellent A/C. It was a welcomed oasis after a long day walking the city.

Rude host, faultless location
The location of the room was faultless and the view from the balcony was spot on! However, the room was so cold and the heating (when it actually worked) was so loud and so inconsistent (kept turning itself off) that we had to sleep in jumpers. It took us 20 minutes to check out as we couldn’t find the host and there was no box or anything to put the keys in so eventually gave up and handed the keys to the chef. Be aware of the city tax, on the website it states €1 per person per night however it ended up being €4 per person per night and when we question this to the host he did nothing more than shrug it off.

Polite staff average hotel fab location book suite
A small average hotel, not exactly the boutique some describe as. We were lucky to have booked the suite on the top floor with the private terrace. The owner should consider fairy lighting or any lighting and possibly a heater as we sat most evening and enjoyed a bottle of wine but it got so cold once the sun went down it was unusable. Shower was broken but gave a good bad pressure. Mini bar very over priced considering there’s a supermarket 20 meters away. Heating worked fine in the cold months. It’s no hotel Danieli but for price and location it’s just fine.
