We arrived via a private transfer from Marco Polo airport, stunning way to enter the city and would really recommend doing this ( the hotel charges 125euros to book this but there are several companies who do it for around 95, well worth it if you are travelling in a group.). The transfer booking through the hotel is to the hotel's front door but this is dependent on the lagoon tide water level so you may end up being dropped off at the pier any way.
Easy access to the hotel from the San angelo pier as detailed on their website, 3 min walk to San angelo sq and palazzo paruta is on the corner.
We were welcomed by very knowledgable staff who spoke excellent English. They were able to print tour vouchers for us. The courtyard is peaceful. We stayed in one of the suits with a canal view, stunning high ceilings with blue thick velvet curtains. The room was a highlight as we were only staying 3 nights so wanted to feel like we were in venice at all times. It's not cheap but is very good value for venice.
Breakfast had very good selection, the free afternoon tea each day was a nice touch. The service was a real highlight, they used the afternoon tea (4-5:30pm) time to do a turn down room service. For a fuller afternoon tea, the gritti palace does one for 38euro pp but it's not comparable to the London hotels.
Really easy walk to San Marco square, la fenice opera theatre (worth a day time tour if not fancying a whole opera) and Rialto. There are also good restaurants nearby that the hotel can recommend.
I'd also recommend taking a gondola from the canal outside the hotel, it does quieter routes- we made the mistake of getting a gondola from the grand canal and it was rushed, choppy and our gondolier repeatedly spat into the canal. Not romantic!
