Having never stayed in the centre of Venice, we weren't quite sure what would be the perfect location. We wanted somewhere comfortable, and while cost wasn't the top priority, we wanted to have enough spending money to ensure we could also enjoy more than just the hotel.
I was a little dubious before we arrived... somehow I had this image of a slightly tyrollean lodge, with the odd cobweb in the corner from what I had seen on the website. Some sort of overwhelming and heavy brown wood feel. Nothing could have been further from the truth. It felt like the perfect Italian designer get away. With temperatures hitting 42 degrees, the aircon was essential.
The staff were great. Warm friendly and helpful. Just the right blend of being there, and not being obtrusive.
And the location was to die for: 5 minutes to St Marks Square, or 5 minutes to the Rialto Bridge.We couldn't have made a selection that suited us better.
