From the moment we arrive by water taxi and came into the hotel through the back door, we had friendly service. At the desk, we were given a good map and the various spots most people like to visit were highlighted for us. Since we arrived past normal lunchtime, we were told where to find a bite to eat nearby. Usually restaurants are not open between 3-7pm, but there are many places that sell quick bites to eat such as sandwiches and pizza.
Our room had a sleek, Scandinavian decor and the bathroom included a fully tiled shower (with a rain head), rectangular sink large enough for two, and bidet. The beds were more like you find in Sweden or Finland with just a mattress and not a box spring. I found the bed to be very comfortable. There was a flat screen TV and several windows facing a courtyard. The courtyard was quiet thankfully since we kept our windows open during the day and at night. We spent our two nights there in April, a quirky time of year when the days can be warm and the nights are cool so the air conditioning had not been turned on yet.
I would have to say we liked the bathroom most of all in this room.
In the morning, you can go have breakfast in a room with a complete buffet that included scrambled eggs, hard-boiled eggs, bacon, sausage, lunch meats, bread, pastries, cereal, yogurt and fruit. There is also bottled water and juices, in addition to coffee or tea. The staff is friendly and works hard to keep the buffet.well supplied.
We found one man in particular to be helpful at the front desk. I wish I could remember his name. He helped us several times with directions, maps and general questions. The day we left, he made sure we got into the water taxi so we could get to the train station on time.
This hotel is an excellent location right near San Marco Square. You can walk right out your door and begin exploring the wonderful city of Venice! We loved our stay here and would definitely return!
