Elegant lobby with interesting art. Sit in the cafe at breakfast and watch the gondolas and boats go by. Walk to a cafe for wine and listen to music in the evening (for a charge). Great location. Water taxi took up directly from the airport to the hotel. Fun.

Great location. Water taxi took us directly to the hotel from the airport. Service was excellent and the rooms were lovely and relatively large. Nice area for walking. Drinks or breakfast outdoors watching the gondolas go past. Lovely and very relaxing.

Our 35 th wedding anniversary was celebrated at this beautiful hotel, thanks to very special friends! Would we have spent that amount of money? A beautiful hotel very close to the main sites and attractions.

An excellent hotel. Perfect location on the canal half block from San Marco. Relatively modern for Venice. Courteous and helpful staff. We book a room in Casanova, the main hotel annex across the side street. Newly renovated spacious room. Two large windows and a lot of light. Large marble bathroom with a tub, a separate shower, and a bidet. Luggage... More

An elegant first-class experience in a fairytale land. The staff, accommodations, attention to detail were all superb. Concierge staff is knowledgeable and helpful. Harry's Bar is around the corner, along with the rest of Venice. Perfectly located.

The perfect Venice hotel, beautifully situated. A renovated Art Deco gem, with lots of original Art Deco pieces of furniture etc.... All this is so refreshing after the corporate faceless ness of the chains. Staff go out of their way to be helpful, and always with a smile.

Excellent location but you pay through the nose for it in the higher seasons or get shunted to the poorer rooms. Staff are a bit arrogant but that seems to be normal for Venice. Plumbing issues in some rooms with a gurgling noise whilst the taps run.

Stayed here 24-28/5/14. Excellent location, wonderful staff and service - simply nothing too much to ask for. We had 2x inter-joining rooms that were both very well furnished with modern bathrooms and very good air-conditioning. Bar fridges were well stocked. Room service was almost instant service. The hotel's main restaurant, De Pisis, is excellent in all respects. We will return.
