This is my second trip to Venice and I stayed at this hotel after numerous recommendations and it exceeded all of them. We arrived at the hotel by water taxi and the check in process was smooth. We had a room (Canal Grande) on the ground floor near to the lift, so I had initial concerns about the noise. But as they shut the fire door between us and the lift, we heard no noise during our three nights. The room was the size of a mini suite with a private courtyard area. The room was well decorated and with a great wet room. The breakfast is extremely tasty and has a great variety. The balcony overlooking the canal was used for all our breakfasts and evening aperitifs. The view from the balcony is superb and it was the perfect way to start a day or an evening out. Also the hotels location is very good with all the major sites about 20min walk away or a 2min walk to the nearest vaparetto stand.
However the main highlight was the staff. Throughout our entire stay they were polite, attentive without being overbearing, courteous and wonderful with their very good suggestions of where to see and eat. All in I can not recommend this hotel enough and would highly suggest staying here.
The only downside of the hotel was the television and remote in the room not working as they should. And the iron provided during our stay leaked and had to be used without water which meant it took an age to iron a shirt. But these little annoyances pale into insignificance when compared against the hotel itself.
