We stayed in this hotel a month back at the peak of the European summer. Nothing much to complain about the hotel premises or surroundings. Its a nice hotel, great views from the rooms. Its an old mill which has been converted into a hotel.
A few let downs would be owing to the tourist season the hotel was packed to the hilt and so there was a lot of noise in the lobby and the restaurants always seemed full.
They offer free rides to the city centre which is a wonderful add on given the fact commuting is impossible unless you want to swim in the canal :)
There is a lot of ruh for these free boats and we opted for the private boats which I thought were a bit pricey at 110 Euro. Again these rates are not consistent with different staff. The night staff would offer us a price that completely different from the day staff so that was kind of shady but then the overall experience is what counts.
The rooms were well appointed, a bit small to our liking but one cannot complains since surface area is in short supply in Venice. The room had great views of the canal and the San Marco square was at a distance. Being in the main shipping lane you could see large ships and cruise liners making their way up the canal which is a pretty sight. The grand canal was on the opposite side and so the noise and bustle from the horns was down a bit.
The breakfast was god. Had a wide spread and had an asian section which was a nice touch. The restaurants were full most of the times and so we managed with room service and the service was not bad either. Staff were polite always ready to help and assist. Despite the rush the checkin and check out was fast
Basically this hotel gives all that you expect from a Hilton and nothing more.
What I would really recommend is for the hotel to have their own boats or contract an agency to arrange for pick up and drops or else here could be a lot of confusion since the signage is practically absent in Venice. For a new comer to Venice I was lost for a moment because this (boats) was not your regular mode of transport.
