The best attribute of this typically cute, small Venetian hotel is the location, just a 2-minute walk from Piazza San Marco. Rooms are dressed in a bright rococo style with modern extras like satellite TV, and air conditioning, and most have lovely views of the local canal (but not all—check when you book to avoid disappointment). It has no elevator (remember that a “fourth floor” room in Italy is actually on the fifth floor, quite a climb) and the breakfast buffet is small, but it does have free Internet terminals in the lobby and a small rooftop patio that few guests seem to use.
