Spent 2 nights here, 26 & 27 November 2012. On arrival we were upgraded to a superior classic room........what a great start !!!. Daniel, the owners son checked us in, so helpful. Room was beautiful, spotless and a good size. Free WIFI, fresh towels everyday.
We chose this hotel based upon previous reviews and I must say that in my opinion it cannot be faulted. Breakfast was very good, ok only a continental breakfast but they had everything required to start the day.......freshly baked croissants and a very good choice of coffees, fresh rolls, refilled coffees.
Location in my opinion was perfect, walk to St Marks was around 25 minutes but we preferred that as in meant "meandering" through some back streets which we enjoyed. It was our intention to only visit St Marks and the usual touristy attractions once but we found that after walking around the area local to the hotel (Jewish Ghetto) we just kept on walking as the sites and architecture were so appealing.
On our first afternoon we came across a Billa supermarket that was only a 5 minute walk from the hotel and we stocked up on fresh rolls, ham and cheese and fruit and ate this at lunchtimes in order to keep costs down. The owner assisted each morning by filling out thermos with boiling hot water..............what a star !!!!!, so accommodating and helpful I really cannot praise the hotel and the owner and his family enough.
Venice is a very beautiful place, it was our first visit and out of season, we also wanted to do this short trip on a budget but with a very nice hotel based upon Tripadvisor reviews. I can confirm that we achieved this and the hotel came through with flying colours. I can confirm that this hotel is everything previous 5 star reviewers have said and I would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel.
I could say so much more but I'm sure readers will all ready get the picture.................IF YOUR VISITING VENICE MAKE SURE YOU STAY AT THIS HOTEL, ITS EVERYTHING OTHER REVIEWERS SAY AND MORE !!!!!.
