This is a rather nice 3 star hotel which is located just off of the cross avenue central to LIDO. It is easy to find and perhaps 10 minutes easy walk down S. M. Elisabeta from the Allilaguna and Vapporetto Stops. It is very nicely situated on a pedestrian way where there are a lot of restaurants, but which is a quiet part of town.
I have stayed at the hotel once but friends of mine stay repeatedly when they visit Vencie. The property is a bit run down around the edges, being an older mansion that was converted to a hotel I suppose....but it is clean and pretty with some very nice personalizations in the rooms like Trompe l'oeil on the walls and such...
The staff are kind and helpful, the bathrooms and beds are clean, and the rooms I have seen were not tiny or cramped...but rather spacious for Europe and especially for Venice...each one being a bit different from the other with different features, like a window seat or something special.
The hotel does not have an elevator as I recall (or it may have one that does not work), so you will have to carry luggage up the winding staircase....but anyway, as one should not be carrying big suitcases to Venice since there are no easy transits door to door, it is quite doable to carry a hand luggage up the steps. If you have problems, the desk can probably arrange for help for this, though there are no porters, per se.
The breakfast is an arrangement of cold items with coffee and juice and all is plentiful but you must save calories for Gellato anyway.
The rooms do not have stocked mini bars, nor do they have safes, but the desk will store valuables should there be the need for this.
It seems to be the kind of place that people will return to, as many guests seemed to have been there previously.....but everyone is made welcome. less
