My boyfriend and I stayed at the Dimora Marciana in October this year on a four night break to beautiful Venezia! Not only did I absolutely love the city but couldn't have asked for a nicer hotel! It's not too hard to find and hidden down a quieter street and we did not hear any noise at all when we were in our room.
The staff were very helpful, told us nice places to eat, visit, things to see and were very helpful when I asked for extra pillows, nothing was too much trouble. I also liked that despite it being a very small and quiet hotel there was always someone to greet you as you came in and always someone wishing you a nice day when you go out - most large or small hotels can't always manage that these days!
The room was beautiful, spotless and cleaned every day. The decoration fitted perfectly with the quirky feel of Venice and I was very pleased to see a clean and modern bathroom. The shower was huge! Plenty of wardobe and drawer space for our stay and nice that there is a free safe in the room too. My one and only criticism of this hotel is that there was no shelf in our shower for your shampoos and shower gels! I was happy to put them on the floor and this really is far from major, but might just be worth a little shelf somewhere nearby :-)
The hotel is in a fantastic location, literally a few steps from the popular St Mark's Square, there is a lovely restaurant just on the corner from the hotel, but easy to walk to lots of other bars, cafes and restaurants. Took us less than five minutes to walk from the water bus stop to our hotel and meant we didn't have to leave really early when travelling home.
I cannot fault this hotel, it honestly is so beautiful and the staff so helpful. I cannot comment on breakfast available as we chose not to have it included with our stay and instead preferred to have a walking brunch or early lunch on our daily explorations - they say getting lost in Venice is one of the best things about Venice and we certainly got lost a few times!
I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in Venice, based purely on the hotel's beautiful decor, helpful staff and amazing location!
