We spent 3 days in Venice before heading off on a cruise and I have to say I loved this place. After doing a lot of research and reading reviews, we chose Antiche Figure, and our group (all 17 of us) had a great time. It's beautiful, clean and spacious by Italian standards, and the people that work there couldn't have been nicer. (Ask for dinner recommendations - they won't steer you wrong). We arrived by water taxi which dropped us off right in front of the hotel. I originally thought that being across from train station would be a problem because of noise, but the location was great. We had a canal front room and at night it was very quiet. The breakfast was delicious with a lot of assortments and they have a small bar area which was great if you wanted to have drinks. Just a little advice if you are cruising. Since we were such a large group we took a water taxi to cruise line. Don't waste your money. Go to Piazzale Roma (over 1 bridge. It's short distance from hotel), ask someone where the "people mover" (tram) is and for 1-2 Euros per person you take the "people mover" approximately 2-3 stops and get off the the cruise terminals. Then you walk a short distance and voila - you've arrived. The whole thing from hotel to cruise terminal should not take you longer than 30 minutes, but make sure you have luggage that you can wheel around. The water taxi I took to cruise terminal took the same amount of time and cost me 120 Euros. I would definately stay at Antiche Figure again.
