This hotel is pristine. The cleanliness of the rooms and the communal areas is exceptional. Towels and bedding changed on a daily basis.
The staff are very nice and when we arrived the staff ran out to help us with our cases - no tips expected! The ambience of the hotel is relaxing and peaceful as you'd expect with the nature of this catholic hostilery - only broken by the sound of heels on the floor as people return to their rooms.
The location in Venice is perfect and pretty easy to find. I was a little daunted about getting there with large cases and a baby, via the Trevisio airport bus and the Vaperetto. But it was all pretty intuative and easy to follow. For an early flight home I recommend taking the water bus from Accademia up the grand canal - very special!
The breakfast was a little basic, but that didn't spoil our stay in any way. This may not be the hotel for those hedonists that require a 24hr bar & disco (or a bar at all!), but for those who seek peace and a great standard hotel, you won't be disappointed!
