We wanted to visit Venice, and found this hotel not too far away when renting a car.
The main problem was the location of the hotel and the sign posts. Despite having sat-nav and following signs pointing to the hotel, we ended up driving around for an hour late at night to find the hotel, only finding it by asking locals as the signs to the hotel did not actually direct us to the hotel.
However, once arriving at the hotel we were very pleased with how modern and fresh this 4 star hotel was. The car park was free, and there was free wifi. The room was very modern and to a very high standard, and despite being next to the main road, surprisingly quiet. The lined curtains kept the light out and the usual 4 star luxuries were included such as a free safe, a mini bar and tv (although Italian channels only unless you pay for sky).
The staff were very helpful, recommending local restaurants, arranging for taxis and had a warm welcome each time we walked past the desk. Breakfast catered for a range of tastes, and there was shops and a few restaurants in walking distance too.
In all this was an excellent hotel, let down by the poor sign posts to the location, but I would certainly recommend staying here.
