My Partner and I stayed here for 3 nights in August 2012, it was our first trip to Venice and we loved this hotel so much we will definitely be staying here on our next visit.
The location is fantastic, just a short, pleasant scroll to San Marco and the Rialto Bridge on the Grand Canal. Everything you need to do in Venice is nearby, yet the hotel is in a private and quiet location.
The hotel itself is beautiful, it's set in an older building (as is all of Venice), but the inside has been renovated. The lobby makes a perfect first impression, it's full of Venetian charm and elegance. We stayed in a room overlooking the canal, the rooms stay true to their heritage and I loved this about them. I was probably most hesitant about the rooms when I booked-I usually look for very modern designed hotels, to avoid anywhere outdated and rundown, but it was so clean and stylish, once again full of Venetian charm.
Our rate included buffet breakfast, it was simple yet delicious, so no problems there.
The staff here are fantastic and so happy to help with anything.
We also received a complimentary water taxi out to Murano with a guided tour of a glass factory, this is highly recommended and we felt no pressure to buy anything. You do need to organise your own transport back, but the water bus is about 3 Euros so that's no issue.
If this hotel is within your price range (look around because you can get a great rate, we did!) book it now, a great hotel can make all the difference to your trip-and this is certainly one of the best in Venice!
