There's only so much real estate in Venice, so we weren't at all disappointed in the coziness of this room. Our check in process was friendly and easy and upon entering our room we were blown away by 2 things: the beauty and romantic nature of the room, and the congratulations bottle of Prosecco the hotel gave us for celebrating our honeymoon. They even gave us another 2 glasses of Prosecco complementary at the hotel bar (considering that a rum and coke at the bar cost us 16 euros, this was quite a gift).
Our room was stunning and unlike any hotel room I've ever stayed in. Our view was so-so: we could see one of Venice's bajillion churches from our window and a series of rooftops that was tempting to run across Mission Impossible style (though I somehow resisted). The whole hotel is equipped with gorgeous Murano glass that's more than easy on the eyes. The location is perfect - very close to the San Marco piazza and right by a waterbus stop. You can walk everywhere you want to see in the city, or take a waterbus very easily enough. We did, anyway.
I was a bit taken aback by the lack of a shower curtain or full door, but maybe this is a normal thing in Italy. The breakfast buffet was quite good, and we appreciated them giving us a full pot of coffee with it. The service was fantastic; we needed tickets printed and wanted advice to not get ripped off by a gondolier and they were very helpful. They were also willing to accommodate free wifi for as many devices as we had - which was a lot.
I'd recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a romantic getaway!
I thought the sheets were a little rough but my husband absolutely loved them.
