“Sleep cheap, save your budget for food and fun”

The 9th of November 2012:”Our unexpected stay (5 nights and still here!) was to be with family members admitted to the neighbouring hospital and awaiting repatriation – so for us the location was superb. For Venice visitors, whilst not in the heart of tourist area it is only a pleasant, easy 10 minute walk to Piazza St Marco. Easy to get to and from as signs everywhere point to the hospital. There is a supermarket (<1min away) and a Vaporetto stop (2mins) at one end of the street. We did not try what looked to be a basic, functional breakfast as there is an outstanding bakery at the other end of the street (right out of door and right again <2mins). On first glance the rooms look very basic but are spotlessly clean with comfy beds, fresh towels, good hot showers and very quiet at night. As an added bonus, there is an outstanding restaurant around the corner – Osteria Alla Staffa and the best gelati in venice at Rosa Salva for those nights when you cannot stagger any further. The staff were helpful and accommodating of our ever changing plans. No hesitation in recommending if you don’t need doormen and bling. Just looking at previous reviews, we had fast, free Wifi that was very promptly reset when not working on our arrival. It subsequently worked brilliantly (on our iPad and phones) for which were extremely grateful as was vital with our need to communicate with worried family, friends and airlines.”.
