The views and the location cannot be beat! We were on the third floor, facing St. Mark's Square, and it was wonderful to sit in our room with a glass of prosecco, looking out at the hustle and bustle. However, the windows on the third floor are fairly small, so we had to sit quite upright in our chairs to be able to see the crowds. The windows on the 1st floor appear bigger.
The room itself is done in the opulent Venetian style. I found the room to be dark, and not super comfortable. The bathroom is perfectly functional, if on the small side.
The weather was pleasant, but the air-con was cranked to the max. We tried to turn it down, but it seems that the a/c cannot be controlled from the room, even though there is a control box on the wall. We finally called reception and they are able to turn the a/c off remotely.
Room service did a good job every day.
It was no problem checking in at Panada, and they also kept our bags for us on the last day.
Now that we have enjoyed the view and the central location, we will probably not go back again. The room charges are high for what you get, and I wish the room had been brighter and with more natural light. As it is, it is a long, dark room, with two fairly small windows on one end.
However, for a first time visitor to Venice, the location is superb.
