Was a bit worried when I read the other reviews but it was for nothing.
Easy to find after catching water taxi. Warm greeting and very helpful young male attendant, was a nice man throughout the stay. Another female attendant was also friendly.
the room is small but we were aware of that already. Bathroom is a decent size. There was no smell we could sniff that was bad. Comfortable bed, additonal pillows provided on request.
So close to the St. Marks Square, very convenient. Our friends had booked the self service accommodation next door and that was really nice too.
We didn't hear the Opera but our Friends said they could from the self contained apartment- but said it was enjoyable.
Air con worked beautifully. Luggage is required to be taken up two flights of stairs. We were assisted.
Rules are no different to majority of places- if you want towels replaced etc, put them on the floor. There is explanation in bathroom. Same as any other place we have stayed.
improvement I can see is that I agree with others about the breakfast- a little more attention to it would make it perfect- a toaster and freshly sliced bread so that a hot option is available. Auto coffee machine was nice and as much as you can drink. I didnt think the crossaints were very fresh- they arrive early in the morning from somewhere else and were not warm- I was up before 7am and they had already arrived and the bag was cold. After the crispy flaky warm crossiants we enjoyed in Roma and Florence, I was a little let down. I would have really loved some toast to spread the nutella on!
Apart from that small criticism I enjoyed my stay. I also liked the cuteness and difference of the Hotel with its design.
