Decided on the spur of the moment to go on a weekend break to Venice, and we were impressed by the excellent reviews on tripadvisor and booked. It didn't disappoint! We were welcomed by very friendly staff, who made us feel immediately at home and gave us excellent tips on where to go during our short stay. The rooms were gorgeous (though slightly disappointed we had no view) and absolutely spotless. Breakfast was good and the hotel is in a very central location.
(Small side note - the hotel offers a guided tour to one of Murano's glass factories - worth a visit but be warned, you WILL be pushed to buy! Nothing to do with the hotel, that's why it didn't affect my rating.)

The lobby with its rose marble fireplace, the breakfast room with its golden mirrors, and the bar with its Venetian red velvet armchairs overlook the Grand Canal and are the best places where to begin and end a day!
