The hotel is a short walk either from the Alilaguna boat stop at Fondamente Nuove, or the Ca’ D’Oro water bus. The directions on the hotel website are ok but for ‘foundations‘ read buildings and ignore ‘fields’ (none)
All the front desk personnel were welcoming and friendly and the wait staff pleasant and helpful. No language barriers. Our standard room was on the small side but had a nice feel with high ceilings, tall drapes and old style italianate furniture. The good sized bathroom had his and hers sinks and newish matt pastel tiles. Other details; clean, good heating, firm supportive mattress, shaped clothes hangers. Our suggestions for improvements would be inclusion of tissues in the toiletries and resetting the TV sound (menu locked) to reduce the slight bass resonance.
The breakfast room is a spacious looking interior with restrained continental décor overlooking the courtyard with a fountain. The discrete speakers sound quite good. Hot food consists of bacon, mini sausages, scrambled and boiled eggs. The lounge area and bar areas have good, well- arranged seating. There are colourful Murano glass items in display cabinets throughout. The overall ambience is comfortable and has character.
Strada Nuova, the main street around the corner is less touristy than some with a supermarket, two must- try gelato shops (Grom further down is better) and reasonably priced restaurants and wine bars. We liked La Cantina, Alla Vedova and Trattoria da Giglio. St Mark’s square is 12min walk away and the Rialto area even closer.
Updated forecasts from the Venice tide centre are posted in the lobby where there’s an internet booth and printer. The pool table room is an unexpected inclusion but nicely fitted out with low level pendant lights. Complimentary coffee, tea and biscuits from 2-6pm make for a welcome afternoon return after a day’s sightseeing. We’d stay again without hesitation.
