The perfect Venice hotel, beautifully situated. A renovated Art Deco gem, with lots of original Art Deco pieces of furniture etc.... All this is so refreshing after the corporate faceless ness of the chains. Staff go out of their way to be helpful, and always with a smile. The rooms are comfortable, and stylish, and our huge bathroom was a marble clad delight. Our view was over the charming rooftops to Piazza San Marco, and the grand Canal. Breakfasts were excellent, and to be able to sit there on the terrace looking over the canal, listening to the gondoliers singing publicly and chatting privately was glorious. Vaporettis stop here, and also water taxis can be booked. The hotel also runs a shuttle boat over to the nearby island, where you can visit the lovely gardens and luxurious Spa of their sister hotel? You are at the heart of La Serenissima here with everything in walking distance, and we would have no hesitation in recommending this gem un- reservedly.
Ps- as is usual in Europe there is no kettle or tea/ coffee making arrangement in the room. I was encouraged to just call room service for a flask of hot water for my herb tea. This arrived quickly every time, entirely without charge.
