My wife and I returned to Sussex yesterday after a magical 4 night stay at this lovely hotel. The Ruzzini Hotel is very much like Venice itself, beautiful, friendly and sophisticated. The location is ideal for those that want to discover the whole of Venice. Just off the opposite end of the square you can look down towards The Bridge Of Sighs and get easy access into St Marks Square and The Basilica. Behind the hotel you can walk a short way to The Rialto Bridge and San Polo or Cannaregio and the Ghetto area. The Hotel is a wonderful blend of new and old being a beautiful old property given modern touches and refinement. The staff are just fantastic and so friendly without being pushy or interfering. I cannot rate them highly enough. If you can upgrade to a suite overlooking the Square the space and way the rooms are planned are first class. If you are there for a special occasion then let them know, they made our anniversary very special for us. Top tips, get a private water taxi as a transfer (worth every penny), get a good map with enough detail for each major and minor street, relax and enjoy the experience. Thank you Ruzzini, we will be back.
