Great location with few frills and fuss
Location is great; a few minute walk to San Marco square. Excellent directions were texted to me a few hours prior to arrival, which made walking to the hotel from the boat station very easy. The day I checked in, I was told I needed to pay 32 euro for the city tax, in cash only. I wasn't given notice of this city tax and I wasn't provided a receipt. Luckily, I had the cash on me but would've liked to have known about the tax beforehand. Also, why was I not provided a receipt? Also, the last day, we had to walk to the boat station in high tide with our bags, which means we couldn't roll them and had to carry them high above the water (which was mid-calf high in some areas). When we arrived at the boat station, we discovered that a porter service was available, which we were never informed of by any staff member (who ironically bid us goodbye when we left that morning so he knew we were leaving in high tide with heavy bags). Other than those two small items, the location is great, the room was clean and comfortable, and getting in and out was very easy and pleasurable.
