This being my second visit to Venice, I continue to be amazed at how hoteliers in this beautiful city with such challenging surroundings manage to offer a comfortable first class stay. From my previous experience, I learned to select a hotel close to a Vaporetto stop so that you are not lugging the luggage all over the unfamiliar streets of Venice. This hotel is right next to a Vaporetto stop which makes it a very convenient location. We were greeted warmly by the hotel staff that offered us refreshing fruit drinks. Our family of 6 stayed in 2 separate rooms and both rooms were very comfortable. Our room had a split-level plan with the bedroom being upstairs and bathroom downstairs. The room was clean and had a large comfortable bed. The buffet style breakfast can be enjoyed in the front terrace with the gorgeous view of the canal. Every morning, Junior from the hotel staff, greeted us with a warm smile and made sure we had everything we needed. The hotel recommended a restaurant by the Grand Canal and they did not disappoint us because we enjoyed a fabulous dinner. Our stay in this hotel was great and we look forward to staying here again on our next visit.
