Tranquil budget hotel set in a quiet neighborhood, next to the Frari Church, is just a 10-minute walk from the train station. Rooms are fairly compact (and could be a little cramped for some), but par for this price point in Venice, and all are air-conditioned and come with free Wi-Fi and satellite TV (although there rarely seems to be any English-language channels). The elegant garden is a great place for breakfast (you can also have it in the dining room), with warm croissants, cheese and a selection of yoghurts and cereals, teas and coffees, and fruit juices. The hotel provides free entrance to the Venice casino and a free tour of a Murano glass factory, but the friendly English-speaking staff will also set you up with all manner of tour options.
