Once you complete the slightly confusing task of negotiating the tiny alleys in Venice and you locate the hotel for the first time, you will love the location. The hotel is conveniently located about 5 minutes from either St. Marks Square or the Rialto Bridge. Here's a hint - from a raised pad on the side of St. Marks Square, walk straight ahead on Basso (with a slight jog along the way) until you pass a small church. Turn right past the church, make a quick left for a few feet then turn right - the hotel will be right in front of you over a small bridge.
We were warmly welcomed on arrival and loved our spacious room overlooking a small canal. The decor was clean and elegant and the large bathroom had a wonderful walk-in shower. We found the staff at the front desk to be patient and helpful with our many questions and Sylvia in the breakfast room was a delight every morning. The bed was extremely comfortable and even the pillows were perfect.
Bottom line - we absolutely loved our stay at the Aqua Palace and will happily return on a future trip!
