We recently spent four nights at AD Place (July 29th through August 2nd). The hotel is easy to find (just follow the directions on the website), and when you arrive in the main lobby you are greeted with colorful tapestries, candlelight, and a beautiful red Murano glass chandelier. The check-in staff was exceptionally polite, and they escorted us upstairs to the Maggio Room. Yes, there are stairs to climb, but they are not onerous and consistent with most properties in Venice. (Preservation codes strictly regulate what property owners can and can't do, and all of the bellyaching I see about the stairs is really misplaced but typical of American "instant gratification" attitudes.)
The Maggio Room was wonderfully decorated with purples, limes, and white accents. The bathroom was nicely decorated. Narrow, but more than sufficient for hotel stays. The room has great windows that open to flower boxes and the canal view below. Oftentimes we were treated to the sweet serenades of gondoliers going by, signing and sometimes playing the accordion as they passed below. It was very enchanting.
Complimentary breakfast each morning was buffet style, with fresh juice, eggs, meats, breads, and other assortments. We always enjoyed breakfast and found it went a long way as we walked the streets of Venice.
Speaking of walking the streets of Venice, AD Place is perfectly situated between the heart of San Marco Square and Accademia Bridge. It was very easy to explore Venice from this location, as many other reviewers have attested.
I encourage everyone to pre-pay if they can and if they know their plans are fixed. The pre-pay took 12% off the total price, and it included snacks, a bottle of sparkling wine, and a trip to the Murano glass factory. All were incredible perks and very enjoyable.
We feel this was a perfect, service-oriented hotel that showcased Venetian style and the Venetian independent spirit very well.
