The hotel is in an excellent location. It is impressive looking enough with great views of the gondoliers working their magic with the gondola rides but the room, staff and breakfast was average. The breakfast served burnt pastries, not replenished for the 9.30 am eaters...More

In particular concerning breakfast, which is instead considered our little jewel by the most of our Guests

Husband and I spent 6 nights at this property end of August/early September on our 3rd trip to Italy but first visit to Venice. I booked this property based on all the great reviews here and a few other places but we were very disappointed...More

The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and
