unfortunately we only had one night in this beautiful hotel. We chose it only due to the Trip Advisor recommendations and really had high hopes upon arrival (it would get 6 out of 5 if it was located on the other side of the canal so you wouldn't need to lug suitcases over the large bridge over the Grand Canal or the smaller bridge that also needs to be traversed - that said it was very close to the train station as promised). Was also a little tricky working out directions as I do not recall seeing any signs, it was only prior reseach on Google Maps that ensured we headed in the right direction.
All experiences with staff where first class from check in to departure and everything in between. The room (Carnivale) was stunning, although not Canal frontage or overly large, with beautiful decor, fittings and appointments and it really gave off a truly Venitian ambiance.
Whilst the price could be considered as high there was no hint of not getting value relative to the cost.
A stunning hotel and one of the best we have stayed in.
