Arrived at the hotel at 12 noon. Our room was already prepared for us. Michele at reception spoke fluent English and helped us with where to get a good lunch. He also rang a restaurant on my behalf to make a dinner reservation. Top quality, professional but friendly, welcoming service.
The room was a standard deluxe double. Slightly on the small side by most standards but still perfectly adequate and not at all cramped. The bathroom was well equipped and spotlessly clean, although perhaps getting a little dated. (This may be harsh as the decor is in keeping with a typical period Venetian building.) The bed was VERY comfortable and larger than expected. The one fault was that the room and bathroom were too warm. The towel rail in the bathroom belts out the heat and, without a window open, the room gets a too hot. (Again, this is very harsh as we just opened the window and the cool fresh air quickly remedied the problem. I'm being very picky as, truthfully, there wasn't anything to find fault with.) We had a desk and chair, a telly (all Italian channels, but there's so much to do you won't have time for watching telly), free wifi (you get a password for every one of your devices), plenty of towels, a safe, and plenty of storage space for clothes. Everything you need, really.
There is a well stocked bar in the lobby which seemed to be open all night. Breakfast is from 7 to 10 and includes fresh croissants, cakes and pastries, fresh coffee or machine coffee, and all the usual 'continental breakfast' ingredients.
The hotel is well located on the central canal. Highly recommended.
