I'm lying on the bed in our small but lovely room in the Aqua Palace as I write this. The hotel is a gem with all the vagaries you come to expect in Italian hotels and in Italy in general. The taps in the bathrooms work in opposite directions, the wallpaper is almost overwhelming, the room safe didn't quite work but the staff worked it out in the end. No problems, no worries. The charm of this place is as a result of these lovely little quirks.
The staff are a delight and Sylvia in the breakfast room is a very special person, she makes you feel part of the family and has an uncanny ability to remember everyone's name, 10/10 for her and the service in general.
When we return to Venice we will be staying nowhere else.
