We wanted a hotel w/character that made us feel we were in Venice and this hotel did the trick. Very nice location with a deck that can be used any time right on the Grand Canal. The room has a nice decor reminiscent of old grand houses w/red walls, gold trim around the bed, big chandelier. The AC worked very well, so did the internet (for a fee). The bathroom was clean, a little bit small but mostly really needs a shelf to put toiletries on and extra hooks.
The buffet breakfast was all right, however the coffee was a big disappointment, just plain coffee out a carafe, no espresso or cappucino ! This should be mandatory for Italian hotels :)
I am definitely recommending this hotel for anyone who wants to stay in Venice.
