I remember booking our room at the Aqua Palace and thinking that for the price, there must be some kind of catch. But we found the Aqua Palace to be everything it promised and more. We booked a junior suite and were so lucky to be given a superb room which overlooked the nearby Guerra canal from some 3 windows. The bedroom’s décor was golden and lavish; the room spacious and cosy. The bathroom was similarly grand in design – my only complaint would be that for a suite, we would have expected a bathtub in addition to the shower, and likewise more bathroom storage would have been welcome. I would also have liked thicker towels and bedding. However, other than those minor matters, the room was superb. As for the hotel itself – it is a stylish, elegant boutique hotel, from its beautiful reception area through to its unique little outside sitting area right by the canal. The breakfast (which was included) was ample and delicious (although one of the ladies who worked there was rather loud and walking around moaning that she felt ill and shouldn’t be at work – which was a little off putting when one is trying to eat). Finally the location of the hotel cannot be beaten - between St Mark's and the Rialto. This is a magnificent hotel and we will definitely return when we are next in Venice.
