Just returned after 4 nights in this wonderful Venetian hotel. Everything about it was perfection.
Firstly the location - overlooking the Grand Canal with a view of the Rialto 100 yards to your left and directly opposite the Market. To sit on the small terrace eating one's breakfast, having an early evening beer or (most magical of all) a final drink before retiring to bed was a wonderful experience never to be forgotten.
Secondly the warmth and friendliness of all the staff. Matteo, the owner has clearly trained his staff really well, nothing was too much trouble and I liked the personal touch of them talking and greeting you on first name terms, like a good friend. The recommendations for restaurants close by were also invaluable and excellent choices. Also the fact that their are only 9 rooms in the hotel meant that you felt part of a small privileged community.
Thirdly the cleanliness and high quality of the fixtures and fittings were all of the best standard.
It is of course not cheap but nevertheless even at €300 per night you get real value for money and you will experience a never to forgotten stay. It is quite simply the best hotel I have ever stayed in.
