Venice is expensive and this Hotel is no exception but the rooms are spacious and well appointed - luxurious actually. The staff is superb - endless patience with our questions and inability to operate the electronic keys ;-) They also added a third bed to a room when an additional niece joined our group at the last minute. The location is just a block off the grand canal very close to the Rialto bridge which really helps when you get a little lost in the maze of Venice streets and canals. Make sure you understand the electronic notification system for getting your room cleaned. We didn't and accidentally left the occupied light on all day so didn't get maid service.
