Have just returned from a 3 night break in Venice with my teenage daughter and will definitely be returning.As this was the first time i had travelled abroad for many years without another adult, i was a little apprehensive. However, the hotel made us very welcome, reception staff were helpful and efficient and we were extremely happy with our accommodation. After consulting trip advisor when choosing our hotel, we were worried that the room was going to be cramped, however we were allocated an apartment next door to the hotel which was extremely spacious and well planned. It had a large bedroom and also a sitting area with 2 double settees, a chair and a desk . The decoration was typically Venice and although a little dark , was very smart and well maintained. The bathroom was spacious with a double power shower and was spotlessly clean. The breakfast was varied and tasty and served over a 3 hour time slot so it was never busy and we didn't feel rushed. The location was amazing, just five minutes from Rialto bridge and ten to fifteen minutes form St Marks. Finding the hotel was easier than expected although we stopped to ask directions a few times. We used the water bus to transfer from the airport and walked from Rialto bridge saving 40 euros on a water taxi. Venice can be expensive, but can also be done on a budget There are lots of little restaurants in the area,some have a cover charge, some don't, some charge a % service charge and some don't, so it is worth asking when choosing where to eat as it can make a big difference to your bill. There is a supermarket diagonally opposite this hotel which is a bonus as supermarkets are few and far between but we found this handy for drinks and snacks etc. All in all, a wonderful few days.
