We stayed four nights at Aqua Palace in early Aug 2011 and had a wonderful stay. The hotel had been renovated within the past year, and it is fairly modern in decor and everything is new and in good condition. The bed was fantastic. (It Italy we find them too hard and often with the split in the middle.) The room we had was fairly small (but perhaps average for Italy), but the bathroom was quite large with a tub and plenty of counter space. The room had a safe and the AC was very good. (Several of the other hotels we stayed at during this trip had weak AC's and never quite cooled the rooms). The hotel is in a great spot, between St. Marks Square and the Rialto, but enough off the beaten path so it is quiet. The staff were very helpful, and they got us a reservation at the top restaurant (per Rick Steves) where they knew the owner. Breakfast was more than the traditional pastries and coffee and included eggs and bacon and had the most pleasant staff. Overall a wonderful stay!
