We stopped over in Venice for just one night and booked this hotel in advance, mainly because of the availability of the four person room.
After travelling on the overnight train from Paris we were all pretty tired and were so pleased to be able to get an early check in. The room was ready as early as 10am and we were able to drop our bags off and freshen up with much needed showers.
The front desk & bell boy were wonderfully old fashioned, it was like stepping into a film version of Venice, and it made us feel very welcome.
Location wise, just a short walk to the main attractions, and the immediate area around the hotel was full of bars and restaurants situated on the side of one of the nicer looking canals. A gondola station outside the hotel, several steep bridges - like I say, a film version of Venice.
I think the hotel is a bit on the pricey side - we got a good deal as we booked very early, and it is Venice after all, but the tariff in the rooms had a room price of 480 Euro (we paid half that) - if that had been the case I think it would be overpriced.
Rooms were clean and spacious and the vital air conditioning worked well. The free WiFi also worked well. The only real gripe we had was the breakfast room was far too small. We went down to breakfast around 8.30 and ended up waiting around 40 minutes to be seated with another family. When we did eventually get in the breakfast was perfectly nice, if not remarkable.
All in all, a great stay. The acid test, of course, is would we stay there again. The answer to that is a firm yes. next trip to Venice I'll be booking Hotel Arlecchino as my first choice.
