This was our first visit to Venice so we decided to stay at Principe palace because of its location as a combined beach and City, 2 week break. We were really pleased with the location in a busy piazza, at night it was lively, especially at the weekends. Our room was at the front as we requested. But, we found if we closed the bathroom door as a lot of outside noise seemed to travel through the vent in the bathroom, we slept well. Some noise has to be expected if your in a busy location.
The first week was very busy for us we travelled into Venice 5 days out of the first 7 days. And found this very easy. With research on the internet. I had bought a pass for the ferry and vaporetters and a combined pass for some attractions, museums and churches. Which we felt was good value.
The hotel itself was always clean and the staff were friendly, can't say enough positives about them really. They made our holiday even better. We were well looked after in the dining room too. The staff were always courteous and went out of their way to make our trip enjoyable. We had been there the first week and then it was change over week on the Friday which meant a large influx of new clients. Unfortunately it was very busy and food did become some what delayed. But, we were happy to wait as we could see the staff were extremely busy trying to settle in the new clients and some did have to wait. But, I was very shocked when one person decided to have a go in front of the whole dining room at the Maître d. And then stormed out. I felt that this was unnecessary. A quiet private word would have been much more productive and less stressful for all concerned. The staff were on edge. When this person was around after this incident. Unfortunately for us the next evening this person was seated behind us on the next table. All though our meal they were complaining constantly to their own party. I decide we couldn't continue the rest of the week listening to this person. So we asked the Maître d if we could move..quietly, calmly and privately. He was absolutely lovely and said that would not be a problem. The next night we sat at another table and continued to enjoy the rest of our holiday in peace.
We were also sent a complementary bottle of wine to our room because of the inconvenience caused. We would have no trouble recommending this hotel to others. But you can't avoid the other clients..lol.
