When we arrived we were booked into a classic room - this was on the ground floor next to the reception and wasn't really what we were expecting. We upgraded (at a charge) to a junior suite, which was much more like it. Four poster bed, tall ceilings, intricate artwork and great views out onto Campo Santa Maria Formosa.
The location is very convenient, with just a 5 minute walk to either Rialto or San Marco. It was very easy to get to, and I'd almost advise getting off at Ft. Nove if you're catching the Alilaguna line from the airport, as the waterbus is quite slow and it takes 10 minutes to walk from there at most (minding out if you have lots of luggage however), rather than the 20 or so minutes it will take to get around to San Marco.
The staff were very friendly, both front of house and in the bar / breakfast. Breakfast was good, the pastries were cooked fresh I believe and were delicious.
All in all, a very good stay. My biggest advice would be to stay in one of the suites as that's when this hotel really does come into its own.
