Just spent 2 nites here with my husband and 2 yr old and I have to say we were pleasantly surprised! We loved it! The staff is very nice and the small breakfast room is quaint, yummy and staff very accommodating! Location is perfect with a short walk to San Marco, Rialto Bridge and all tourist spots. All water taxi's here are cash only. If you plan on traveling light like we did bring your own shampoo and conditioner (they only provide shampoo here).
ROOM; book a standard room, they are plenty big and try to get one with a view of the canal. We originally booked a jr suite and did not like the setup, it seems as if each room is different too. In the morning the breakfast wait staff will make you coffee/cappuccinos' for your room if you go down and ask. I just waited for them to be done and walked them up.
PLACES TO EAT;
Da Mario Alla Fava - great food, close to hotel, staff very helpful and dessert amazing!
