My girlfriend and I stayed at this hotel for a weekends stay and we had a great time. I spoke to the hotel direct before arriving and they were more than accommodating offering several extra packages that definitely suit couples. The setting was great being within walking distance of both San Marco and the Rialto Bridge but still being slightly away from the main run of things. We went in January which was ideal as nowhere was too busy but the weather was still good enough to go out wandering. I would highly recommend this hotel and it's staff. It is probably more beneficial booking direct.
