An historic hotel with a beautiful lobby (a great photo oportunity), and what must be the best location in Venice. An excellent base from which to explore Venice.
Our room was in the refurbished section and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast on the terrace was really lovely.
Reception staff very helpful but because the hotel has so many people staying overnight for cruises etc, the demand on reception is very high and you can have a wait for booking in etc.
On the downside, the drinks and a la carte were very pricey. However there are some nice restaurants down the back streets from the hotel if you want a more low key relaxing holiday with 'tourist' menus from around 18euros for three courses (e.g. Alla Conchiglia, Castello 4990).
One point: try to get a room on the first floor. We initially had a low room and the cleaning/ service of the room there was good, but had to move to another room on the third floor due to a leak in the bathroom. Here the maid service was awful. We returned around 3.00 pm from walking around Venice and room had not been cleaned. We rang reception and they said they would send someone straight away so we went out again for an hour. When we returned the beds had been made but dirty glasses and a tray had been left from the day before, no shampoo replenished, no water bottles left. We wondered if our experience was a one-off, but other guests on this floor also said their rooms were cleaned very late in the afternoon just as they came back to relax after a busy day. They obviously start cleaning from the bottom and work up, or the staff on floor three are not so conscientious! This is not good for a five star hotel.
