Stayed here for 3 nights in April 2014.
Room: We stayed in room 5. This was a corner room with a fabulous view of Accademia bridge and the grand canal. Nothing beats watching the sunset on the grand canal. The room was extremely clean and spacious enough. Bed was comfortable and having a sink in the room was very handy. The shared bathroom was at the end of the hall and was kept clean.
Staff: very friendly and helpful in choosing restaurants, sightseeing and concert tickets. They helped us with our bags to our room. Someone was at the desk at all times. If you return to the hotel late at night, ring the bell and they will let you in. Before our trip they replied to emails promptly and gave us directions from the airport.
Location: very convenient. 5 minute walk from Zaterre allilaguna stop. 15 minute walk to st. Marks and rialto bridge. 5 minute walk to peggy guggenheim's museum. There is a decent restaurant right downstairs. From the airport we took the allilaguna blue line to Zaterre stop. It was about 1hour and 15 minutes. Very slow ride but only cost us 15euros each. The water taxi is faster but i think 115euros each.
Breakfast: delivered every morning on a silver platter at whatever time you specify. It includes apricot croissants, bread rolls, yogurt, cheese and jams. This was ample for us. The coffee and hot chocolate were delicious! Enjoyed eating breakfast and watching the traffic on the grand canal.
Tips: highly recommend peggy guggenheims museum, a Vivaldi concert at the Church nearby and Oke restaurant for casual pizza and pasta away from the tourist area! We booked a gondola ride with music on expedia as well as a tour of the islands murano, burano and tocello. Definitely returning to venice!
