A stunning room & classical Venitian decor (former palace). The rooms size and decor (Superior Room) were absolutely stunning, and among the best I have ever encountered in any hotel, anywhere. Upon arriving at the hotel we were given a free upgrade to this 'Superior' room which was fantastic. Generally stunning decor and furniture throughout.
Great location in lovely area. Very close to water bus, this is critically important as this is the primary way of seeing the city (their equivalent of the tube essentially) Easy to find and accessible.
Cons: no lift.
Poor view from room & occassional noise from building work.
TV didn't work for half our 4 day stay. The justification for this was that a previous guest had taken it. Frankly in the context of the amount paid this is unacceptable and clearly this should have been checked and rectified prior to our stay.
The Laundry Service quality is poor: clothes did not fully dry and price supposed to be paid differed from that quoted - generally unclear. It also took over 2 days when I'd asked for them asap.
During a random Venice flash flood staff were not really helping guests (i.e. providing with means of getting in and out of the hotel dryly/safely) and not advising where we could get boots etc. Consequently we were marooned in the hotel for half a day.
Heating and air conditioning did not work in room for entire stay, despite asking staff to help fix the heating when trying to dry some of my clothes.
I would reccommend this hotel as the rooms/decor were stunning and it's in a fabulous location in a great area. I cannot overstress the importance of this to our trip as practicality and the room quality are clearly all-important!
The staff (particularly the gentleman of (I think!) Indian origin were generally very helpful. However as noted above there were several incidents where I feel the hotel could have done more and I where I didn't feel that I got full value for money.
