Dont let the expense keep you fro this fabulous hotel. If you are traveling NOT on a budget and want the experience of Venice this hotel is a must. Right in the center of Venice...a few blocks from St Mark's place and two ro three bridges from everything else. The water Taxi (expensive) stops here but so does the water bus (cheap 7 euros all day long)
The rooms are large for Europe. Comfortable heat and a/c controls in the room. Free wifi and restaurant downstairs. Comes with breakfast and a fantastic, staff willing to bend over backwards. If you are staying in Venice, dont spare the cost and stay her!
