we were lucky enough to upgrade to room 501- a room with a private roof top terrace overlooking the lagoon and looking out to San Marco.
The key was the terrace- amazing views. We checked in on January 3- it was sunny and 55 degrees and we were jet lagged from our trip from NYC. Dropped our luggage in the room and went outside- WOW. Sat there in the sun, overlooking the lagoon, watching the boats for an hour.
Came back on the terrace at sunset- beautiful. Enjoyed the terrace daily.
The room itself was spotless- as was the hotel. Shower pressure was very good. The bed was a little hard for our tastes. Bedroom was a little small.
Our room was lined with wood- floors, ceilings, even the tv holder was wood. There was also a small sitting room adjacent to the bedroom area- access to roof deck was through the sitting area.
The staff were quite friendly and spoke english well. Internet worked fine.
The breakfast was totally fine and the staff were kind and helpful.
only thing i did not like was one suggestion for dinner one night- we asked for a non touristy place that was not crazy expensive within a reasonable walk. We said we like to go to places that they would send their friends- They suggested Ristorante Franz- we happened to pass it later that day-it was closed and there was no menu in the window- so i knew we were in trouble. when we went back to the room - i checked it out on TA- got nice reviews but was very pricy- so we cancelled it.. No way the hotel staff would be going there with their friends at those prices.
other than that- which is quite minor- a lovely stay
