Guestrooms. The six air-conditioned guestrooms have traditional Venetian decor with high, beamed ceilings, bright walls, and richly-coloured fabrics. All offer televisions, direct-dial telephones, dial-up Internet connections, and minibars. Windows open onto neighbourhood or courtyard views. Bathrooms have bidets and showers, and hair dryers are provided.
Expert Tip. An alternative to overpriced gondolas are the commuter boats known as traghetti. Similar in design, these boats carry locals across the Grand Canal at a fraction of the cost. Venetians tend to stand up for the crossing, though visitors may find this precarious. The longest route is between S. Tomà and S. Angelo.
