This is located on Zattere which is the long walkway going along the length the sestiere of Dorsoduro. There are tremendous views across the wide Giudecca Canal over to Giudecca. There are consequently great views from many of the rooms. You are also no more than a 5-6 minute walk over to the Accademia bridge and the attractions there. Another plus is that the stop for the airport water bus, the Alilaguna is right by the hotel.
The hotel has a restaurant which is useful if you arrive late in the evening and don’t fancy tackling the streets of Venice.
