If you are arriving in Venice's Santa Lucia train station you cannot find a more convenient location. However there is one catch- you must be able to go about 45 steps up the bridge over the canal and then down another 45 steps to get to the side on which the hotel is located. If you have heavy luggage and / or have any mobility issues this could be a challenge.
Once you arrive at the hotel- just a two minute walk, you will be greeted by wonderful stafff who will go out of their way to make suggestions, reservations, provide travel instructions etc. They do it with a smile and warm Venetian hospitality.
The rooms are small, but lovely with tasteful decor and the bathrooms quite elegant (even including warming bars for generously sized bath towels.)
The breakfast is very nice with some of the best cappucinos anywhere. Three varieties of cereals, yogurts, sliced turkey, ham, cheese, croissants, fresh fruits and assorted sweets should hold anyone till lunch.
All in all great value in high priced Venice. The vaporetto across the bridge (yes, that one!) gets you to almost everywhere in Venice, Murano, Burano and Torcello.
