We stayed 2 nights in a standard room. Ground floor, just behind reception, but with a clever double-door, it was quiet inside. There was no view, and not much daylight in the room, but as others have said, we were in a base-rate room. We used the lack of view as motivation to go outside!
Room was quite spacious by 3-star standards, even had a tiny twin hide-a-bed that would work for a child/youth. It was nice to have the single sofa for sitting, more than I'd expect in a standard room really. The roof terrace was great, and WiFi worked up there (but not so well in the room).
We asked about adjusting the A/C and Paulo, the hotel owner, said 'of course, just understand Celsius' so we were relieved to have the temp to our liking. The bath was fine, though of four hotels this trip, this was the only one with the older sit-and-shower style. It worked well enough, and the tub is long enough that I, at 6'2", enjoyed an evening soak after a long day of touring. Didn't care for the very floral soaps.
Bedding was fairly typical narrow beds next to each other, we re-made them as twins to have a little more personal space - we're used to a king at home. I found the bed much too hard, my partner liked it. Ah well, that was true for most of our trip. Paulo promptly provided extra pillows on request (though only one was fluffy, the others more typical Italian hard pillows).
Breakfast on the canal was lovely. Huge glass of real OJ, frequent refills on the cafe Americano, with latte caldo in a little pitcher (or have a Cappuccino or espresso, your choice). Rolls and brioche were fine, and yogurt. We saw some kids having cereal, and we probably could have asked for more bread, but with the huge Italian dinners we'd been eating all trip, a smallish breakfast was fine.
The Canareggio neighborhood was wonderful. Very quiet and scenic, but also a neighborhood where locals actually live. We liked that. And a fairly easy walk from the train station on arrival. Excellent for getting to the airport is the 4.1 or 5.1 vaporetto to Piazzale Roma airport bus. Only 4 euro extra on the 24 hour or longer vaporetto passes.
