We spent four nights here on a very good deal. The hotel is beautifully stylish with lovely furniture and amazing exhibitions of glass. Our room was comfortable with muted and natural furnishings. Lovely areas around the hotel to sit or to have a drink and look at some of the books about the island and glass blowing. No great views, but quite light and open. Large king size bed with good pillows. Bathroom not huge but it had a bath and shower with toiletries provided. There were also slippers (but not robes unfortunately). Also there are no tea/coffee making facilities, despite being mentioned in UK website so if you need your cuppa bring your kettle.
Staff were welcoming, pleasant and helpful and will go out of their way to serve you. Breakfast was very good and presented as a 'work of art'. Lovely pastries and prosecco, readily replenished - why eat the boring toast or streaky bacon? We did not eat dinner in the restaurant as it seemed a little expensive for the limited choice of menu. Murano is a lovely island to wander about and is busy during daytime but it does close down at night. On a Sunday evening it was even quieter but we found a restaurant - Osteria Duomo which does great pizzas and other meals and is frequented by locals. For drinks and snacks there is a bar just along from the hotel near the Co-op which sells bottles of wine from the barrel very cheaply.
A major plus point is the hotel's launch which will pick you up from the airport and take you back again if arranged ahead. Otherwise the vaporetto stop Museo is just outside the door. We enjoyed the peace and quiet of the island but if you want to be at the centre of activity you may prefer to stay in Venice itself. WIFI was good but TV had few channels of interest.
Try to visit the glass blowing school if you can. Would love to return.
