My mom and I visited Italy for the first time. Venice was our first stop and the Oltre Il Giardino was our first hotel. This hotel set the bar very high for the rest of our trip. The staff was wonderful and very attentive. In fact, I was depressed to learn that I had forgotten a drawing I had purchased of the Bridge of Sighs at the hotel as we moved on to our next stop. I tried to make arrangements to get it mailed back to me, but it seemed that it was going to be too hard and had given up hope. Today (7 months later) I received it in the mail! I am so thankful that they took the time to mail this to me. It's a small momento but one that will remind me of a wonderful trip for years to come. I would recommend this place to anyone. You can't go wrong staying here.
