We stayed here for 3 days while on holiday celebrating our 30th anniversary. We were greeted in our room with a gorgeous flower arrangement and card with the best wishes of the management- nice touch!
The room was soooo Venetian: silk wall coverings, lush draperies, fabulous chaise lounge, gilded writing desk and magnificent marble bathroom!
We had a lovely canal view and we weren't at all bothered by morning noise.
Everyplace in Venice is hard to find, but we followed the directions on the website from the Rialto vaporetto stop and we had no trouble even though it was our first time in Venice. There's really no need for a water taxi - it's only a 5 minute walk and you have to learn your way around sometime!
The location is ideal: just a few minutes walk to San Marco, Rialto and the morning market, which is early but totally worth waking up for!
The hotel was great at making dinner reservations and arranging the obligatory gondola ride.
Breakfast was quite extensive, hot and cold dishes. The croissants filled with jam were the best and the waitress was among the friendliest people we met.
On the day we left, our plane was so early we had to leave before breakfast started at 7, yet when we came downstairs, our cappuccinos were waiting for us, along with an early breakfast. It was so appreciated.
Everything about the hotel gushed Venetian charm and elegance, from the Murano chandeliers to the velvet ottoman in the elvator!
