Well located to San Marco Sq and the water taxis/tours. However, there are lots of other hotels in the other residential areas and everywhere is within walking distance. I stayed for one night, each one week apart. The price for the first night was about CAD$50 higher than for the second return night after my cruise. The second room was two rooms down the hall and was larger, better a/c and large bathroom. The beds could do with an upgrade...old spring mattresses. The sheets were coarse and rough, but with all the walking I literally passed out once I hit the pillow.
