My family and I stayed at this hotel from July 29 to August 2.
I decided to book this hotel after reading the great reviews from trip-advisor from other guests. First off all let me say that the location is excellent a 20 minute walk to St Marco square and the walk is a path way along the water. The location is great if you have children also because it is located next to a massive park that has playgrounds and swings and even a small soccer field. The area is totally green and full of families. There is even a wonderful pizzeria there that serves up some wonderful pizza and polenta with great prices (locals eat there).
As for the hotel itself it is truly run by professionals who care about their guests their business and reputation. All rooms are very well kept and very well cleaned. The house cleaning was never an issue our room was always made up with fresh linens and clean towels. Sinks showers and floors always shinny. Our room had double sinks in the washroom and free wi fi.We had a corner unit on the 4th floor that even had a small balcony. The front desk staff always greeted us with a smile upon our arrivals and always looked professional and friendly.
The complimentary breakfeast was very good and a nice way to start the day before embarking into the heart of Venice. The selection was not very big which is fine. However the quality of the food was very good. Fresh items and tasty.
I am not sure when or if I visit Venice again but if so I will defiantly book this hotel again. A truly wonderful and professional hotel.
Special props to the server at the breakfast room. I belive he was Eastern European he did a great job caring for his guests and even gave my son a blow up soccer ball as a gift and made my son every morning a hot chocolate drink.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our romantic boutique hotel owes its secluded ambiance to the former convent in which it is housed and of which it still retains much of the original structure: the high walls and the imposing façade conceal unexpected gems such as the impressive spiral staircase and the amazing garden furnished with comfortable chaise-lounges. Venice, with its historic center and beautiful architecture, can be reached with a pleasant stroll along Riva degli Schiavoni, or in just a few minutes by waterbus. ... more less
