We stayed here in Oktober. It was a nice adress being in Venice and at the same time in a quit place with a big garden. We had a big terrrace in our room. The room was very nice furnished, clean and new with a romantic, old style touch. Service was good and fríendly. A hotel I would always recommend my best freinds.
Beautiful Room, Friendly Service
This hotel used to be a mansion, we were at first discouraged by the "communal bathroom" option, it turns out to be a beautiful hotel, great room having separate bathroom in each room after renovation. The front desk person was very friendly. My friends & I wanted to get to the roof of the hotel. He overheard our wishes and gave us the key to go to the roof. He also gave a very good recommendation on an Italian restaurant ("Africa") nearby. But beware that this is located in Lido Beach (about 30-45 min to the Main islands by ferry). Ferry services to the main islands end before mid-night.
Very nice and good hotel
We have been in September 2002 for 3 days in this hotel. It has been wunderful days in venice and this hotel. It is really very romantic and not too expensive. The service was good. The rooms are new furnished in an old style.

Hi Everyone, Arrived in Venice yesterday and as you will see by the photos on FB it is beautiful... We wandered around in the arvo to San Marco Square, had a lovely dinner last night.. Today after breakfast we book s day tour for tomorrow to go to the country three little villages and a winery... Meandered through the gorgeous lanes, amazing what you come across, art exhibitions, cafes ...
... out to our dinner. L'Osteria di Santa Maria. - Castello (Campo Santa Marina 5912), was recommended by our concierge. We had the degustation menu - it was absolutely sensational (sorry kids). I couldn't help myself I was taking pictures of each course as the presentation was amazing. Would you believe we for dessert had another tiramisu as well?.. Yes very piggy but oh so yum. After 2 hours of eating and drinking (day 3 only I think I'm in big trouble here), we staggered ...
... there are Ambulance boats moored here.
So we turn left and find ourselves in the bustling lanes of Venice. Its hot now, all the mad dogs and Englishmen are out, we find some signs to San Marco and try to follow them. We get a water at a bar and have a breather, and try real hard not to get cross. We find ourselves crossing bridges, following signs that take us through dark dingy alleyways, popping out into piazzas and squares no idea where we ...
... luck :-)There was a food festival on, so we wandered the stalls until we found a place we liked, then we watched the vendor prepare a foccaccia of porchetta (barbecued pork) with lettuce (that's what you get when you ask for salad!). Anyway, it tasted quite nice and was authentic local food. Afterwards, we wandered some more and tasted local olives, canoli and bread. In hindsight, we could have just eaten all the samples we were offered and not bought ...
... fine artwork adorning the walls.
Unfortunately by this point I realised that I had a fever and was rather sick. When we met up for drinks in the bar I looked like an eskimo rugged up in everything I had, while the others pulled off everything they had.
Tonight I dined with three fellow contiki members, who had also not chosen the optional. I ordered a basil and tomato pasta, and it was just divine! Perfect Italian pasta, a meal I ...
