I am a travel agent and this was my first trip to Venice with my husband and 2 teenage children. This review is long overdue. We stayed here in early August.
We arrived in Venice from the states. Took a bus to Venice and then a Vaporetto (water bus). We had a little difficulty finding the water bus ticket office. I would ask for directions to it in advance. We bought a pass to cove our entire stay and it was well worth it. You will find that they rarely ask to see your pass. The only time we were asked was when we were departing for the train station on our last day with all of our luggage.
The hotel is located at end of alley and the directions were perfect as provided by the owners. It is located just off Strada Nuova, walking area filled with shops and restaurants/cafes. It is a very short walk from the Ca d'Oro water bus (vaporetto) stop.
We stayed in the superior family with a canal view and it was perfect for the 4 of us. This was the only hotel during our stay of 4 hotels in Italy where our family was sharing the same bedroom and it was great. I would say the service at this hotel gave us the most homey feel.
The bathroom was modern, clean and relatively small but what I expected. Difficult to have more than one person in at a time. However, there was so much room in the bedroom area that it was not a problem.
I am very picky about the air conditioning and we were there during a heat wave and the room was very comfortable.
We relied on recommendations for restaurants from the hotel staff. One of our best meals during our 13 day trip was lunch at the Rosa Pomodoro (probably spelled wrong) off of St. Marco Square.
The owners and staff were very helpful and friendly. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to anyone.
