Charming small family hotel
Located in quiet area but within a few minutes walk of San Marco and the Academia Bridge for access to the lovely Dorsoduro area. I didn't want the overdone slick 'shmoosyness' of an expensive hotel and there was nothing false about the Hotel Dragomanni - it gave a friendly, honest service. My comfortable (double) room and bathroom was not large (usual for Venice) but very adequately sized and had bags of character. It overlooked the Grand Canal, opposite the Peggy Guggenheim house, from a lovely little terrace - wonderful for relaxing and watching the boats go by. It was just delightful.
