We stayed here during our honeymoon. At first I had planned to book us in a room at the hotel property. The website showed no availability at the hotel though it did show a separate property called AD Loft available.
I told my wife I was booking it and was not sure what to expect. The site had a few pictures however at the time (Sept 2013) the Loft property was very new and had no reviews, etc.
Upon arrival we were escorted by foot from the hotel location to the loft location. Once we arrived I was amazed by the building, location and the apartment.
We were staying in a massive luxury apartment in a building with so much history the gondola guides point it out to tourists as part of their tours. Both my wife and I were a bit surprised we had been so lucky to book this place and were now going to stay in such an amazing place.
The location cannot be beat. The building sits on the corner of two intersecting canals thus providing an amazing experience. The entrance to the building is located at the end of a small street that ends at the canal. On the street are 3 restaurants with one being our favorite place in Venice.
You enter the building using a key to unlock the first of two iron gates that lead to an interior courtyard and large marble steps. The apartment is then a 1/2 floor up. (On the second floor is an art gallery and there was light tourist traffic going up to gallery exhibit.
The loft is huge and is a blend of old and new. There is all of the comfort features one might need including sat tv, wifi, mini kitchen, refrigerator, tub, shower, etc. The history is amazing. Look it up if you decide to book it. The wood beams in the loft have the family name and crest painted in gold, large windows open up to the canals, and the furniture is bright and modern yet actually comfortable.
We opened all of the windows and slept with them open listening to the sounds of the gondolas, canals, water and sounds of voices and music.
If you desire a real experience that provides privacy, a luxury apartment at the price of a normal hotel than book the AD Loft instead of a traditional hotel.
The AD Place is probably just as great but we only stopped by once during our trip.
By the time our trip was over we grew to love our apartment dwelling. For a moment it felt like we were settling in longterm.
The staff were amazing and though we were not at the hotel we received check ins, housekeeping and a generous gift of 4 bottles of wine, cheeses, candy and other snacks. Who does this? I cannot say enough nice things about the staff.
Thank you AD staff for making our time in Venice one of the best travel experiences ever!
