Hotel Bucintoro is a lovely hotel in an excellent location. It is close to Piazza San Marco, but just far enough away to enjoy quiet. It is directly across a walking bridge from water taxis and the public motorboat, Alilaguna. We are among the lucky guests who stayed in Room 501. As other reviewers have mentioned, this room is large and has its own private rooftop terrace. It was such a pleasure to watch the sunset from our terrace and appreciate the sights of Venice. Everyone associated with the hotel is pleasant and helpful. We did not realize when booking that breakfast was included and is offered in a very nice dining room on the main floor-- what a nice surprise.
