My husband & I stayed here in mid-March while traveling with a group with Gate 1 Travel. We welcomed the larger and more modern room (#506) we were assigned. After just visiting Venice for several days, the space was very much appreciated! The lobby with its revolving entrance door was very spacious and the large chandelier was beautiful! Our room was more or less like for a "handicapped person" and had the extra space and fixtures accordingly. We enjoyed the large bathroom with large tub and shower...nice!! The beds were firm but very comfortable and had a large closet with a safe in the corner. The hotel is across the street from the Arno River and a nice walk to points of interest like the Ponte Vecchio, known as the "Old Bridge."
The breakfast buffet was included in our tour and was delicious and plentiful. The eggs and bacon are "soft cooked", but plenty of breads, meats, cheeses, fruits, pastries, cereals, juices and delicious coffee to satisfy everyone.
The heat was on low in our room so we opened our window each night. There was a lot of traffic noise with cars and sirens each night along with the talking noise coming from the room next door. A great restaurant to check out is called La Taverna which is right around the corner and one block behind the hotel..worth checking out. We got there ahead of our tour group and glad we did...small but intimate place to dine!
