I actually booked this hotel using airline miles. In my experience that is very "hit-n-miss". But I kept in contact with the hotel prior to my visit, requested a top floor room to avoid noise, and was rewarded with my favorite room of my trip!
If you get a top floor room be aware you WILL negotiate steps. In fact to get to the first floor (second in American thoughts) you have to walk up stairs. Then that elevator will take you up a couple flights but not all the way to the top. You will be glad the staircases don't move!!
But for me, it was a wonderful adventure. When I reached my single bed room, I discovered I have my own private terrace!! (As far as I could tell, only two rooms have that. And I'm not sure if the other room is a single bed or not.)
Also the staff was terrific. I am constantly trying to improve my Italian. One staff member took it upon himself to try to teach me some words in Venexian and another, Christina, only spoke with me in Italian!! Yay!
The breakfast room is lovely and clean but I always took my food back up to the terrace to eat!
I wish I'd chosen to stay here longer. Location is also great!
