We stayed here in August-not the best time to visit Venice as it is really really hot but the hotel was a welcome oasis in a quiet area of the town. The hotel is situated 5 mins from both the train and bus stations and about a 20 min walk from St Mark's Square so well away from the masses of tourists which is a good thing. The staff could not have been more helpful and were very attentive, they helped us find restaurants, catered to my gluten free diet at breakfast and also arranged a transfer from the airport for us with a driver who then helped us to the hotel with our bags. The rooms are lovely, individually decorated, immaculately clean, air-conditioned with Nespresso makers and a fridge. The decor is in keeping with the period feel of the hotel but with a modern twist. Our first room overlooked the canal which was lovely and our second room (our choice to move before we arrived to sample another room) had a small private balcony that you could sit on to soak up some sun. The hotel has a small dining area where every evening around 6 they lay out some complimentary local snacks and serve drinks at the bar, breakfast is lovely, plentiful, tasty and can be enjoyed in the small garden at the back of the hotel (or inside). You would be well advised to book with breakfast as it really is good value. We were very lucky in finding this hotel and would definitely go back, I can see why is is no 1 on Tripadvisor (and we did get the chance to compare with the Hilton Molino Stucky-ours was better). Things to avoid in Venice-the water taxis 65Euro no matter where you want to go so really not a good deal-better to walk and soak up the atmosphere. Thanks for a great stay.
