My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights last week as a surprise trip for her birthday. When searching for a hotel, I wanted somewhere central with direct access onto a canal that was a bit special, and the Saturnia was just the ticket. The superior room lived up to the billing with a great cascading shower, whirlpool bath, huge bed, stone fireplace, sofa, desk, room safe etc etc. Contrary to other reviews the aircon in this room (203) was spot-on and there was no noise from outside to disturb sleep despite both windows overlooking the internal courtyard. The included breakfast has everything you could really want (bar a full English fry-up, though to be fair if that is near the top of your priority list go to Blackpool not Venice !) and caters for the many nationalities who stay there with cold meats and cheeses for our Continental friends with pancakes and peanut butter for those further across the Atlantic.
The staff, every single one of them, are friendly, knowledgeable and cannot be faulted. They picked up on it being a special birthday occasion in our case and left a complimentary chilled bottle of prosecco in the room for us while we were out walking. I booked this trip 11 months ago and have contacted them several times via email, and each time I have received a prompt, courteous and accurate reply.
Chaps, if you want to make your good lady very happy, pay a little extra and get a private water-taxi from Marco Polo airport which will take you straight to the rear door of the hotel - no need to drag your case through the streets here. Book a superior room directly with the hotel for a good rate. Stay a few nights and enjoy being a few minutes walk from San Marco and within easy walking distance of Accademia and the Rialto bridge. Do the main sights early in the day, disappear into the back streets and lesser-trodden paths to drink coffee and get lost among the wonderful narrow streets while the day-trippers invade, then head out into the city for a delicious evening meal after a long relaxing soak or shower back at the hotel when they've all gone home.
We travelled as a couple but saw many families at breakfast with both young kids and teens, so the hotel caters for the full range of tourist.
