My husband and I spent two nights in Venice at the start of our Italian honeymoon, 4/22-4/24. I planned and booked our entire two week trip, and relied heavily on TripAdvisor for booking the hotels throughout our trip, including this one. I am so happy we did, this was one of our absolute favorite hotels of our trip!
I booked us a Junior Suite Lagoon View, and when checking in, we found out we were in room 501, which has its own private rooftop deck/balcony overlooking the water and the city. It was absolutely breathtaking! The hotel room featured dark wood and a window "porthole", keeping with the nautical theme of the hotel. The bathroom was spacious and bright/clean with a wonderful rain shower head with great water pressure. There was also a little nook off the bedroom with a deep tiled rectangular bathtub that my husband and I enjoyed together each of the nights we were there, along with the robes they provide in the room to lounge around in.
Breakfast was great, lots of fresh cheeses and meats that my husband enjoyed, along with pastry, cereal, hard boiled eggs, juices and helpful waitresses bringing us coffee.
Overall, there is nothing we could find fault with, it was a perfect stay for us. We took a private water taxi from the airport direct to the hotel, and they drop you off mere steps from the hotel, and then we arranged for another private water taxi to take us to the train station the day we left, and we got another fantastic view of the grand canal on our way out. The front desk was very helpful with restaurant recommendations, calling us the water taxi and also sending us off to Murano as part of our room rate.
