My expectation was not so high, because I made a lot of negative experiences in Venice in the past. We arrived at San Stae at the vaporetto stop and were a little bit confused because we couldn´t see any hotel sign. It is a kind of inkognito hotel - no signs outside. But to make the first step into the lovely courtyard makes you feel happy. We arrived early at 1pm but we only had to wait 10 minutes and our room was ready. We had a room to the backyard which was very quiet and a nice view to the green courtyard. The room itsself was lovely decorated with a hugh bathroom .. new and modern style. Very clean. The bed was comfortable. In the night you couldn´t hear anything from other rooms and that is not common for hotels in South Europe. It was very pleasant. The breakfast was fine. Only the scramble eggs were terrible and you had to ask for a fresh orange juice, the one offered on the buffet was not a fresh one. The cappucchino and pastries were fine. It is a pitty that the hotel doesn´t has a terrace to the Grand Canal - that would be a highlight. Our next time in Venice will definitly be again in Palazzo Giovanelli.
