We stayed here three nights at the end of May and were very pleased. The location, right on the grand canal and steps from St. Mark's, can't be beat. It was incredibly convenient to many sights, restaurants and the water taxis are right out front. At first, we thought the location might be too busy and noisy but the hotel manages to be this tiny calm within the tourist storm. Another thing that helped was that whatever they've done with soundproofing has really worked - we couldn't hear a thing in our second floor room once the windows were closed.
The rooms definitely exceeded my expectations. First, our room was very large with plenty of room for all our luggage for a two week trip. The bed was also very comfortable and we really appreciated the adjustable bedside reading lights. I would highly recommend getting a room with a balcony - we took a million pictures at all times of the day from that balcony.
We had mixed experiences with the front desk - a few of the staff did seem a little surly but they did do everything we wanted. Others, however, were extremely friendly and one concierge made sure we got up to the roof top deck (which was closed off when we were there) without us having even asked.
The breakfast buffet was nice but the dining room and the outdoor patio was amazing. Again, they've managed to carve out a peaceful spot in the madness on the riva. We did eat dinner at the hotel our first night - the food was very good and the live jazz band was great. Very relaxing. Overall, given the high prices of Venice hotel rooms I'd say we got a great value for our money and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
