Don’t let the “monastery” tag fool you. Once you get into the building you would think you are in any modern hotel. The rooms are well appointed. Very clean and spacious. The check-in & checkout procedure was efficient, the staff very friendly and helpful.
The location may not be what a honeymoon couple would look for as there is no view of the canal. But if you are like me and just want an affordable, clean room to sleep in then this is just perfect. The hotel is just 50 mtrs from the Accademia & Zattere vaporetto stops. I realized how important that was when I saw lots of people dragging suitcases through narrow crowded streets and over bridges getting to their rooms. Trust me – you don’t want to be dragging suitcases over any distance in Venice!
The breakfast was adequate and typical of most Italian hotels. They provide a fast Wi-Fi connection at an extra charge.
In short – highly recommended. I will stay there again if I ever get lucky enough to be able to see Venice again.
