We stayed here as part of an Air Transat tour group. The rooms varied greatly, some were slightly larger than the closet in our room!! Our room was very spacious but strangely layed out and the furniture was as others have posted strangely ecclectic!! It looked like something from the 70's at best!
Breakfast was O.K. (it was funny how they relocated the coffee and juice makers each morning)!
We had such a wonderful hotel the first couple days of our tour in Venice that this was indeed a disappointment! Apparently, they're not part of a chain because there was no comparison to the Belvedere in NYC!!
Dinner was very formal which we did not expect after seeing our rooms!! While gym shorts, hoodies, sweatpants and sneakers were allowed Men wearing Michael Jordan beach type shoes were not!! Women were OK, but not men!! We got the biggest laugh from this! The dinner food was excellent; however I felt badly for a couple in our group that ate "no pork" because it seemed no matter where we went they were served Mozzarella & tomatoes instead!!
I believe they finally asked for chicken and were given that here! The restaurant was one of the only good parts of this hotel besides the nice lobby and patio/bar area. There were many small children playing and running around in the bar so we were fortunate to be able to sit outside.
As I said, we were part of a tour and had no choice of hotels. Unless the price was very cheap I would choose a different hotel if booking for a return trip.
Elevators were not only slow, but very small taking forever to get luggage to rooms. AC not functioning; glad we traveled in May!
Front desk staff very unhelpful! All we wanted to do was call the Vodaphone store to get their hours of operation for the next day and they drew us a map of how to get to the store - this did little good at 10 p.m.!! Would not even look up the phone number for us! The restroom was hidden behind the front desk area in what looked like a closet next to an office.
