It is a bit unfair to post this pic because this is a very nice place to stay. I have been here twice, once in a single room - share bathroom with one other single room - and once with husband and daughter. Both rooms were en suite that time.
Because it used to be a convent and is thus historic they are only allowed to add a certian number of bathrooms, so not all rooms have en suites.
It is close to S. Lucia Station and to Piazzale Roma where the buses from the airport arrive and there is a car park. The very car park I have posted a pic of.
I paid 50 euro plus breakfast for a single and it was 100 euro plus breakfast for a double.
But the breakfast is awful. But then it so often is in Italy. A basket of pre packaged dry toast and sweet cakes, juice, coffee or tea.
It is scrupulously clean - and rather quiet and peaceful. Staff is as helpful as they can be with poorish english.
Two computers in the foyer available for hire.
I was using the computer when four young girls arrived to check in. They asked if there was a safe in the room.
Yes, said the receptionist, it is safe in your room. (And it is too because there is staff on all night.)
So I butted in and said - Sorry, there is no safe in your room.
They were amazed. They wanted to know where they would put their passports.
I would have loved to have seen their faces when they found out that there was not only not a safe but no fridge, telly, telephone in the room. Very basic.
But what there is is fine, the bathrooms are brand new, beds comfy, a long way from Piazza San Marco, but the vaporetto stop at Piazzale Roma is handy.
I think this hotel would be especially good if you were looking for a single rate. That can be hard to find in Italy.

Comparison: less expensive than average
Directions: Very near Piazzale Roma and S. Lucia Station
Price: US$20-40
Theme: Pension/Guesthouse
