I had the room with a terrace overlooking the Grand Canal. What a treat! I can only agree with all the positive comments. Giovanna on the front desk is lovely, warm and welcoming. All staff were friendly and helpful. The little balcony at the front is a great spot for breakfast or a late afternoon drink. The hotel is very close to a vaporetto stop and has a dock at the front that means you can arrive and depart for cruise ships or the airport by private water taxi.
A big drawcard for me was the fact that it is away from the throngs at St Marks and Rialto. Both areas are within easy walking or vaporetto distance. I spent more time exploring the Canareggio area. There are lovely small cafés and restaurants away from the masses.
I spent 4 nights here and would definitely stay here again if I get to Venice again.
