This is a pleasant hotel in a good central location. All the staff we met were very friendly and helpful.
Our room was very clean and furnishings in good condition. Breakfast was good, nothing exciting, but a good range of the usual buffet products - breads, cakes, scrambled eggs and ham, yoghurts, cheese, fruit, cereal, juice.
There is a little restaurant /bar at the top of the hotel and we went there for a free welcome drink. Panoramic view. Get there early if you are going for a drink as it seems to turn into a restaurant around 6.30.
Our room was above the canal, but had a lovely view across part of the lagoon to Santa Maria della Salute church.
The only down side was the lack of air conditioning. We felt quite stifled in the room and I spent much of the time with my head stuck out the window - not ideal really! There was a temperature control knob on the wall, so we assumed ours was broken as we could not get cool air. However, when we reported this to reception, we were told that there was no air con only heating! We switched the temperature control off as we defintely did not want any extra heat. At night, to get air, we had to keep the window open but this meant that we were exposed to noise. The rubbish barge sites itself at the canal in the morning and large wheelie bins are brought to it to be emptied. The sound of breaking glass, as bottles were tipped in, disturbed a few of my dreams! If we had been able to close the windows, we would have had some soundproofing.
The hotel is not cheap so I am sure that it can afford to install airconditioning.
