I needed a guaranteed good night's sleep after 3 nights in 3 different countries, so was lucky to find Aqua Palace on a late avail search- one room left.
On foot, the simplest way to find the place is via the Calle Specchieri San Marco tucked right at the back right hand side as your face the square from the bay behind the cathedral. Just head straight all the way up until you reach the junction and then turn right and it's the building across the small bridge.
If I'd have known that, might have saved me 40 mins! Saw that many guests used water taxi- hotel has landing bay.
Staff couldn't have been more helpful on arrival, and once I got into my room, I knew I'd made the right choice. Beautiful spacious room, great stylish bathroom, and super comfortable bed.
Needless to say, had a wonderful 8 hours sleep, ready for the chaos of Venice the next day.
Certainly not the cheapest place to stay in Venice, but as the adage goes, you get what you pay for!
