we stayed 3 nights at this lovely hotel. Coming from the cruise ship port it was a 30 min rirde per Alilaguna boat and then a short walk to the Hotel. The room was spacious, somewhat noisy facing the "road". Our friends faced the inner court yard and had a quiet room. We could walk everywhere from there, St. Mark's Square was 10 min. away. The staff, Gabrielli, Marco and Luke where very helpful making suggestions and reservation for taxi transfers. I would recommend this hotel any day.
