The location was great, being just across the bridge (over the Grand Canal!) from Santa Lucia train station, with cafes, restaurants, ATM and shops close by. Piazza San Marco was within walking distance of the hotel, as were most of the sights, and the many varied winding routes to and from the hotel really allowed us to take it all in and experience Venice. We booked one of the junior suites, which was located separately from the main hotel. This meant we had to buzz at the door to be let in, which wasn't a problem, and actually made the whole stay feel more private (not having to traipse past reception and other guests all the time) - might be just what you need if a secluded romantic getaway is what you're after. The room was very warmly decorated, did not feel like a hotel at all, adding further to the very personable and personal atmosphere of the hotel. Breakfast was standard Italian fare - but better than what we got in a similar style hotel in Rome - and, regardless of the food, the coffee was always good. The staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient. I'd definitely stay again.
