Arrived at our hotel from the boat which stops around two minutes away . Our room was lovely very Venetian and spotlessly clean . The bed was comfy and the room had aircon and heating . The bathroom was good with crisp brilliant white towels. Staff were very helpful and breakfast was good. We booked a room with a canal view which cost us an extra 20 euro a night which I'm not sure I would do again as being only 5ft 2 I could only see the canal on tiptoes leaning out of window. The hotel is ideally situated probably about 10 from the Rialto bridge and 10 min further to st marks square.It is a pleasant walk with lots to see on the way bars cafes, shops and buildings to look at so we often got side tracked. It is well signed and all the venetians know where everything is so it is impossible to get lost. Venice is very beautiful even when the skies are grey.
It's hard to find anything negative about our trip except that prices for drinks are very high. However there are many bars that are 30 seconds from the square that serve wine at a reasonable price. Coffee drinkers will have to pay between 3.50 -9.00 euros for a coffee ( no that isn't a mistake) and cola is very expensive . The vaporetta is must as its such a good way to see the city.
The gondola is 80 euros for 40 mins.
Tips: if there is a restaurant you particularly want to go to make sure you book as they get very busy and we struggled to get in on Saturday night
Tips: if you are using the public boat to get back to the airport allow yourself plenty of time as they only run every 30 mins and get very busy so you have no guarantee that you will get on ( we couldn't ) the trip is 15 euros each so if there is more than four of you it may be worthwhile to pay the extra for the taxi.
Tip: there are lots of steps in Venice therefore would not recommend for the less able or families with young children
If we return to Venice we wouldn't definitely stay at this lovely little hotel again.
