We had the pleasure of spending the week of Christmas through New Years day in Venice at this incredible hotel. We had a fantastic experience there! You just can't get any better with the location...its literally about a 4 minute walk from the water bus station and about a 3 minute walk to St. Mark's Square. Just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the crowds. It's a small hotel, only 12 rooms, so the attention to detail is unbelievable!
Our room was fabulous. We stayed in a deluxe double. The room was large, the bathroom was just beautiful and the beds and linens....perfect. We had a balcony that overlooked the streets and that was a treat!
I can't say enough about the kindness and generosity of the hotel staff. They were eager to help with any of your needs. And the breakfast, well, sweet Elana made each morning so special. This is not your typical breakfast (and yes, breakfast is included in the cost) with assorted cheeses and cold meat. This kind and beautiful woman would greet me each morning, my coffee would be poured and she would ask what I wished for breakfast, and she would cook it! I felt like a princess and she was such a delight!
Our room did face outward to the street but we did not experience the noise that has been referred to here, with the exception of New Year's Eve. Nothing in the US can compare with the 1.5 hours of sounds of cannons going off! But we just laughed about that and enjoyed that too.
It was a priceless trip. This is a priceless hotel. If you want a special stay in this beautiful city, you just can't go wrong with Hotel Le Isole!
