We were delighted from the moment we arrived and saw what a perfect spot we had found. We took the airport bus to Piazzale Roma then the Vaporetto to San Marco (We weren't sure which number to take but if they say San Marco its the right direction and they all stop there). We bought a 72 hour ticket allowing unlimited use of buses and vaporetto which is recommendable and can actually be bought on-line cheaper in advance of at least 4 days. The hotel is only 200m or so from the stop over a little bridge where the gondoliers ply their trade. The street area has a number of top brand shops and banks plus pricier restaurants but it is an easy walk to anywhere from here. San Marco square is a few hundred meters so minutes away. It was a pleasure to be able to go out for a few hours, pop back for a change, rest or just to drop shopping and then out again. The staff were all very friendly and as we were early there was a good store room to hold the cases plus we were offered cold drinks and pastries whilst we waited. The room was fine with a comfortable double bed under a beautiful Murano glass chandelier plus good sized bathroom with an excellent shower. We chose a standard room so no views but it was fine and quiet as were 301 at the rear. The breakfast was excellent with a very wide selection and various teas and coffees offered. Cant wait to go back to this beautiful city and this perfect place.
