My husband and I have just returned from a 2 night stay in venice.
Arrival- We paid 95 euro's for a private watertaxi which took us direct to santa marina square near the hotel. If you are going from the rialto do watch the youtube video on how to get to the hotel beforehand! It's a maximum 5 minute walk away the location is fantastic!
Check in- We arrived early at 12.30pm check in time is 2pm and they had the room ready for us which was great. The man at the desk was very friendly. You do have to walk up stairs to get up to the check in desk but this is common for hotels in venice and not a problem.
Room- we had a double room- very pleased with the size of the room- very pleasantly decorated. Modern bathroom. Only small niggle was the shower- although very powerful you couldn't change the direction of the nozzle but very minor complaint. My husband asked for another pillow and they were very happy to give us one. The room was spotles
We woke up at 5.30 to hear sirens alerting us of aqua alta. The hotel lent us some wellies which was a lovely touch and enabled us to make the most of the day despite the flooding.
The service was fantastic- on departure day they allowed us to leave out suitcase there.
We have stayed in many hotels over the years and this has to be up there with the best of them. It is only small with 10 rooms but they really make it a personal experience. Our Venice trip wasn't spoiled in any way by the aqua alta thanks to the hotel.
We would definitely return
