We stayed in the Annex building which is just around the corner from the actual hotel front desk. The actual hotel was difficult to find as its a door in the corner surrounded by other shops with big windows. The actual room itself was pretty large, along with the bathroom. The only con with the bathroom was the shower, whose shower head was aimed more towards the wall and had slightly weak water pressure. The beds themselves were comfortable, but extremely loud. The blankets are a set of three. The middle one, which is almost like a plush blanket, had other peoples' hair on it...which was offsetting, but not too bad if you manage not to touch it or let it touch you while you're sleeping. Breakfast selection was alright. They bring you hot chocolate and cappuccinos during breakfast if you ask.
San Marco (St Mark’s) is quintessential visitors’ Venice. The Piazza San Marco, famous for its pigeons, campanile, basilica, Palazzo Ducale (Doge’s Palace) and expensive cafes, is unmissable. The waterfront views are legendary and more gondolas depart from here than anywhere else in the city. In season the Piazza teems with day trippers though just a block or two away streets are quiet and offer more museums and palaces to explore.
