The hotel is in good location. It is close to the central train station, and it is in walking distance to the other sightseeing spots. Only issue with this hotel is wireless internet connection. It is impossible to connect to the internet from the rooms that are away from the reception area.

It's within easy distance of the train station, without being too close. Very conveniently placed,too, for San Lorenzo, San Marco and the Accademia. It's a quiet, comfortable hotel managed by a friendly and efficient staff. I was there out of season and found it offered great value for money.
