Getting to the hotel was easy. A bus costing only 7 euros one way. The hotel is about a 5 minute walk from the bus stop. If you prefer and can afford it you can get a water taxi from the airport to the hotel.
From the beginning of our stay to the end all the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful - gave us a map and lots of tips on ways of getting around. Also recommended sights and restaurants when asked.
The room was excellent - very clean, high ceilings and well laid out. Had a antique grand feel - not ultra modern but definitely has some class. We were impressed that what we thought was wallpaper was actually fabric on the walls. Although our room windows looked at a wall this was not a problem as I had initially thought. In fact it allowed us to open our windows and provided us with privacy. Very comfortable bed indeed. I requested softer pillows and was given those with a genuine willingness to please.
Breakfast was continental - very good selection. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff.
Great location. Gondola service right outside the hotel.
Had a excellent 50th birthday weekend away with my husband.
Thank you to all staff. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Venice.
