Turned up at the hotel on 2nd December and we were welcomed with a refreshing drink and showed points of interest in Venice by the friendly concierge. Then we were showen to our room and it was wonderful with a hanging chandelier over the bed and decorated to a very high standard it was spotlessly clean we loved it. The surrounding area was peaceful and quite and the restaurants in this area were of a very high standard and good value for money as it is not in the heart of the tourist centre but getting to San Marco is only a 10 - 15 mins walk and roughly the same for the Rialto bridge. All in all this a beautiful hotel with a lot of love put in to the decorating of it, the staff are friendly, kind, helpful and will go out of their way to make your stay even better top marks to them all and the surrounding area is peaceful and qiute just what you need after a day of sight seeing 10 out of 10. 100 % will recommend. Thank You for a Lovely holiday.
