Stayed with the Husband for 3 nights in May. Read a few reviews before arrival saying that the hotel is hard to find...with the instructions given through Email about a week before arrival it was simple! Didn't get lost and found the hotel straight away. Okay so it is down an ally slightly hidden away, however, Venice is packed with little snickets and alleyways.
The staff upon arrival were very friendly and welcoming and were throughout our stay. We stayed in room 5, one of the premier rooms over looking the canal and the views were amazing. The canal where it is situated is very clean, doesn't get too busy and in a great location. The room was also very clean and can not fault the room at all. Loved the little touches like providing dressing growns and slippers and a well stocked mini bar. Also another lovely little touch was that there was a complementary bottle of prosecco chilling on the table for our arrival (I'm currently 7 months pregnant so was slightly jealous of the husband enjoying this but can't blame the hotel).
The hotel is located in a perfect location. Around 10 mins from St Marks Square, 15 mins from Rialto Bridge and 5 mins away from two water ferry ports. There are a couple bars nearby to which get busy and is nice to sit alongside the canal with a drink. Must also point out that although they were busy on the Saturday night, couldn't hear the hustle and bustle once back in the room at night which was good.
Breakfast was also great. Lots of choice, fresh and plenty of it. Never felt rushed and was so relaxing and personal.
For the price I think the hotel is brilliant and is really reasonable. I seriously can't fault this place and would definitely recommend staying here to friends and family. There is so much choice out there hotel wise, so if you're still deciding seriously choose this place and you won't be disappointed.
