When planning our 5-day trip to Venice, we were really unsure what hotel to pick from this huge choice. The AD Place seemed to have the right mix of good central location, nice style and reasonable price. We selected the small suite, as hotel rooms in cities are sometimes really small- just to be sure to have some space. Upon arrival, we were presented with a free upgrade to the large suite, which of course was more than awesome! The staff was always very friendly and helpful, the rooms clean and nicely decorated. The views from our four (!) windows were toward a canal crossing, where there were gondolas with singing gondolieros from morning ot evening. Besides that wonderful sound, just quiet. Only a ten minute walk to the Rialto bridge or to the other direction ten minutes to the San Marco place.
