I booked this hotel on Hotels.com, and was sure I booked the Deluxe room. I'm still sorting out what happened, but when we checked in we were given the "Classic" room. Way too small for 2 friends staying 5 days. When they moved us to the bigger room (charging 50 Euro additional per nite), we were much more comfortable. We also got hit with a 5 Euro per person, per nite tourist tax that literally went into effect the day we checked in (all hotels in Venice will now be charging this).
The hotel itself is very nice, located near St. Mark's. The desk staff were all very helpful, making dinner reservations, and patiently directing us by map to the areas we wished to explore. One gentleman, Lorenzo, stood out as particularly helpful to us. The breakfast was included in the rate, and was the expected breads, meats, cheeses, etc found in Europe. The gentleman serving coffee and tea in the dining area was very welcoming. The room was very clean, and the air conditioner was Wonderful during the intense August heatwave that Italy experienced!
We did go to the rooftop bar on a a few nights. Because of the heatwave, it did not appear many hotel occupants were using it. The view is lovely there, and there are tables, double seated chaise, etc. A nice amenity at the hotel, but empty. Apparently, only guests may visit the rooftop bar...we were the only 2 people there at nite. Lucio and David who work the bar, were professional, and helpful giving suggestions of places in Venice we may not have seen otherwise...Thanks, Guys!
Our single concern was that the man who refills the mini bar never knocked or rang the bell, rather just unlocking the door and walking in on 2 separate occasions. We did mention it to the front desk. Overall, this was an excellent stay.
