We paid extra for a lagoon-view room and it was worth every penny. Our room was 104. It was in the middle of the first floor, and had amazing views across the lagoon to St George's. We had a lovely, comfortable four poster bed and a small but very well appointed bathroom with a great shower. The room was spotlessly clean and the maid service was excellent. The hotel surpassed all expectations and was the best choice in terms of location. It was a little bit noisy at times in the night, being so close to the vaporetto stop, but the metal shutters cut out most noise. It also meant getting to the hotel from Marco Polo airport was very easy - the Alilaguna boat service drops off at the San Zaccharia stop, just steps from the hotel.
Breakfast was good and provided a range of options. It's worth getting there before 9am though, as later on they run out of some things!More
