Very Good8.0
Great location in Venice, easy to find++
Nice, older hotel in a great location near St Marks square. Breakfast room overlooked lagoon where the gondoliers readied their boats for the day... front desk was hit or miss in friendliness but always helpful with information.

Fun, beauty, and historic splendor in Venezia
We stayed here at the end of a 3-week vacation starting in Barcelona, followed by a cruise. We had excellent accommodations throughout, so a high bar was set. This place met the challenge well - we had 2 windows opening to the Bacino Orseolo and could see a small bit of Piazza San Marco from the room, just beyond Sotopòrtego del Cavalletto. The room was the largest we had for the whole trip - including 4 chairs, 2 tables, armoire, 2 nightstands, and still plenty of free space. We arrived in Venezia at the 51st + 1 day anniversary of the acqua grande, and had several days of acqua alta ourselves - that was quite an experience.

Spent too much for too little
We had two rooms, one for my husband and myself, and one for my 80+ year old mother and a friend. The rooms were tiny and difficult to reach. We had to go up several floors (either by slow, tiny elevator or walking up 4 flights of stairs), cross a hall linking to another building, and then walk down a flight of stairs (no elevator) to reach our rooms. A bright light outside the hotel illuminated both of our rooms all night long. There were no blackout drapes. Our room had one electrical outlet and there was one in the bathroom. The included breakfast was good. With hoards of tourists visiting Venice, the inconveniences we encountered may be no big deal. During the Venice Biennale hotel prices are sky-high. Loved Venice, will stay elsewhere next time.
