Ok, top 10 rated hotel anyway so you expect it to be good. It was. We had room 106. Massive by our standards, very high ceiling, fab chandelier and decor. Small bathroom (powerful shower, no bath) with heated floor. Massive and comfortable bed, aircon, flatscreen TV connected to the web - which was useful - but free wifi in all the hotel - just ask for extra code (s) if you have more than one device.

All staff were friendly, accommodating and helpful. Used the bar only one night - but friendly. did not use the restaurant - but the menu looked fantastic.

Room was at the canal side - and as there was some renovations going on nearby and everything in Venice is done via a canal - got a bit noisy at 7:30am with people and material arriving for the days building works on the house opposite. But hardly intrusive, especially on the second morning as we knew what it was so could easily ignore it. Otherwise perfectly quiet.

Breakfast was included in our deal - in our view it was perfect - a small selection of hot food -, but copious amounts of pastries, cakes, fruit, yogurt, cheeses, cold meats, breads etc. coffee tea, juices - as much as you liked.

The spa is on the top floor is small but we thought good value, and we were mid week - it was quiet so felt very private. Great view if you go outside on the roof.

We had a great time and really enjoyed being in the hotel and the room - we intend to return to Venice again and will stay here.

We visited in early December 2013 and had wanted to visit Venice for a while. I would recommend this hotel to everyone. The standard in the hotel was excellent. The rooms were decorated to a very high standard including the cleanliness and the included breakfast was fantastic. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. Food and drink in the hotel was no more expensive than surrounding Venice and was easy to find once off the water taxi. Overall an amazing weekend I just wish we had remembered our swimwear!

Room Tip: No tip required all rooms were of a very high standard

Realto bridge just a breath away, but to reach St Marcus square need to tie yourself with a ribbon when start from the hotel or to throw beans behind you.... Especially in winter time when it gets dark quickly.

We had booked their appartment that normally is just above St Marcus square but after of dozens of silly excuses they made us staying in the main complex. Probably because of our short stay (8-10 hours) they didn't want to refresh the room again!!

They need to pay more attention to the lightning of their suites as the old / antique style furniture, tapisserie, floor is too dark, they should have more lights to look more vivant!

An ancient 17th century Venetian palace has been transformed into this elegant hotel. I stayed in the luxury suite that had a large living area lavishly furnished and ancient wooden flooring. The sleeping area has a beautiful view of the canal. The interiors were brightly lit and had a calm atmosphere. The bathroom was elegant and bright with cool white marble. I relaxed with a drink in the cozy bar overlooking the peaceful Venetian canal with slow moving romantic gondolas. The bar overlooks a beautiful outdoor garden in the heart of Venice. I enjoyed dining at the elegant restaurant that served olive bread

The decoration of the hotel is just beautiful and the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The hotel is very well located to the main areas of interest. I felt it was the top end of 4 star and good value for money.

The chandeliers in the hotel are made in Murano so as part of our stay we got a free trip to Murano and a visit to a factory. We had to get the Vaporetto back but it was a nice little extra offered by the hotel.

Breakfast was lovely every morning and the staff there are wonderful. The coffee is also very good.

Lack of TV channels in English was disappointing but we were in Venice to see the city so we weren't too upset.
