My husband and I were fortunate to spend our last two nights in Europe at this beautiful hotel. We took a water taxi to the hotel as we were carrying a great deal of luggage after our cruise. The water taxi dropped us off at the door. We quickly admired the beautiful setting with marble throughout! We had booked a junior suite and was astonished to see that it was actually three rooms: a bedroom, bath, and a sitting room. Our bedroom view was of the canal with gondolas passing. The room was beautiful, marble in an old world Venetian style. Room 108 was beautifully appointed and was a cool oasis to return to after touring Venice in the summer heat. The front desk was very helpful and made dinner reservations for us as well as booked their water taxi to Murano where we saw glass made by artisans. The employees were all so professional and polite. I advise anyone who is looking for a hotel room in Venice to consider this establishment. If I get back to Venice, I will stay there again!
