We stayed here with our two teenage boys in January for two nights. We arrived by private water taxi from the airport and the boys loved the journey and the disembarking at the hotel jetty - a great way to arrive at the hotel!
The hotel is very conveniently situated next to piazza San Marco and the Guggenheim Museum (about two stops by public water taxi away from piazza San Marco) - we went for early morning walks at the piazza - a great way to start the day! You wake to the charming sound of church bells if you choose to leave your window open in the morning.
The furnishings in the hotel are in a very ornate old Italian style and the hotel has a lot of history - which gives the hotel a touch of class compared to more modern hotels.
The breakfasts are in a very luxuriously decorated room and the food and coffee was excellent.
The rooms were very comfortable (although a little warm at times but you can open the window for fresh air) and there is access to wifi - which is apparently vital for survival for teenagers.......
Staff were helpful and courteous.
We would come back to this hotel when in Venice again ....... although this may be a little time in the future as we are living in Australia....
