We stayed three nights in a Junior suite with a canal view. I chose the hotel for its location, about half way between Rialto Bridge and St Marks. The location is really convenient to explore Venice and close to many of the sights you will want to explore. It is on small streets/canals so a little difficult to find. The room was huge and the bathroom was spacious and everything worked well. The beds were comfortable with nice pillows. The staff was helpful and friendly. The included breakfast was good with plenty of variety and the food was good quality. The hotel is located on a canal so has a street entrance and a water entrance. The 2nd floor sitting area is very comfortable and has a balcony overlooking the canal. We had a cocktail there a couple of times- the hotel has a bar and they brought the drinks up for us.
We arrived late the first night and walked to the hotel from the Rialto water bus stop. We made a few wrong turns (it is Venice after all) but it was pretty easy to find. One note, the sign is kind of small so it's easy to miss. It think we walked past it once before finding it. Look for the doors lit up, they are distinctive. A water taxi would be the easy, simple and elegant way to arrive. However, we elected to walk in lieu of the 180 euros fee for the taxi. We had one carry-on roller bag each so it was simple. With more luggage the $$ route is the way to go.
The value for cost is fantastic. We had a wonderful stay and highly recommend the Aqua Palace.
