All in all a very good hotel! The staffs were super friendly and helpful and nothing was too much bother for them. They really are a credit to the success of the hotel. The rooms were a fair size and cleaned daily to a very high standard. The refurbishment of the rooms/bathrooms has been done in a modern way but it is still tasteful. The air con was slightly noisy at times but nothing compared to being uncomfortable in a hot room. I advise you ask for the room which overlooks Venice, you can get some amazing sunsets here. It is also great for people watching. (I think it was 202?). However, a balcony would have been a nice touch. The location was ideal for us as a couple as we didn't want to spend the entire time in Venice itself. It is also so easy to get on the Vaporetto to Venice and surrounding areas. This was a little pricey but after all, we were tourists. The Hotel is in a brilliant location for shops and the beach (all within walking distance). Just ask at the reception desk and the young lady or young man will direct you. The Billa Supermarket sells good, cheap wine, so don't be afraid to experiment! Oh, and you must taste the local ice cream, delicious! The food for breakfast was adequate but please remember this hotel is only rated as a three star.
Venice itself is beautiful and well worth the visit. However, expect to pay Venice prices for everything, especially if you sit down. (10 euro for two cans of coke and 80 euro for going on a Gondola!) At peak times, queuing is the only way forward for main attractions. You might want to consider leaving Saint Paul’s till later in the day to miss the boat loads of one day tourists.
Bang for buck, you can't go wrong with this hotel. I highly recommend it.
