Please note that our trip was a last minute decision during the easter holiday, and most hotels were fully booked during the time we were visiting.
We booked the ''princess suite'' with my partner, as we are both tall people (I'm 6'0 and my partner 6'5) and wanted some space. We paid extra for the room (the one on the website photos with the blue duvet) to guarantee some comfort. The website photos are not reflective of the current state of the rooms.
There was barely enough space between the bed and walls for us to walk, as is visible in the photos I've posted. Upon seeing the room and feeling we'd been duped into taking a substandard room, we went down to the concierge to see if there were any other available rooms. They explained to us that we had the only double bed in the hotel and that all other beds were two singles pushed together. They gave us the keys to the ''honeymoon suite'' to see if that was better. Though it had more walking space, the bed was smaller and there was no bath or shower, just a shower hose on the wall next to the toilet. As we had booked a non refundable room, we were left with little options but to stay.
At least the location of the hotel is fantastic! It's located right off the corner of St. Marco's Square. This too, however, has a downfall... The bell tower rings every hour, on the hour, all hours of the day and night. Trying to sleep was fun. The soft mattress and itchy blanket didn't help. Neither did the fact that it was very cold while we were in Venice and there are no heating or cooling systems in the rooms.
The Comfort Hotel Diana is anything but comfortable. However, it is a clean hotel and the staff is extremely polite and helpful. Breakfast wasn't great, but the few things that they did serve were fresh and tasty. Also, there is free wifi throughout the hotel which was a plus.
I can't say I'd recommend this hotel for any other reason than the location. The overall quality for value was lacking.
