Our second stay. This hotel just gets it right. No it is not a five star hotel but if you are looking for an excellent 3+ star this is it. The staff are friendly, knowledgable and willing to help in any way they can. The hotel is right on a small canal just behind the bus/train termini. You can walk with your bags - no problem with only one small canal bridge to cross. It is a quiet location with outside tables on the canal and a beautiful garden at the back which is perfect for breakfast. The breakfast is for this level very good. Good range of hot and cold, and everything is fresh and replenished often. Our room although small was gorgeous. Old world charm but clean and light and with everything you need including fast and free wifi. Close to the ferry for access to all the Venice highlights. An easy 30 min walk to San Marco etc. The walk was a highlight of our stay. Shops, banks, pharmacies etc all close and restaurants serving more authentic food than many around San Marco or Rialto. We would not even consider staying somewhere else.
