I booked this hotel after reading the reviews here in Trip Advisor, and I am so very glad I did!
The hotel is a gem, located on Riva degli Schiavoni, right in front of the canal, a few steps away from San Marco Square and Cathedral. The vaporetti stops are right in front of the entrance of the hotel.
Service is excellent, everybody is nice and helpful. Our room had the most beautiful view of the canal and the island of San Giorgio in front. The window was not as large as I would have liked, but it was a pleasure to see that scene, as wonderful as a painting, from our room at all times. I could not refrain from taking pictures! I took photos at dawn, at dusk, at night! The room was very nicely decorated, everything was in working order and spotlessly maintained (a nice surprise in Venice, where some luxury hotels do not manage to make the extraordinary effort that must be needed to overcome the difficulties of maintenance in such complicated location), the bathroom was modern, beautiful and comfortable, the shower was excellent.
There was wifi, but it needs improvement. Breakfast was included, the dining room was beautiful, and there were plenty of options to choose from. Fruit was delicious (melon, kiwi, pineapple), as well as different types of bread, croissants, hams, cold cuts, cheese. Really good.
Overall, a wonderful experience! I would definitely go back and recommend this hotel!
