This is my kind of hotel! The staff are friendly, especially Gianluca who cooked us the best breakfasts ever each morning. The buffet was incredible, a real luxury feast of fresh fruit, cakes, pastries, mueslis, smoked salmon, cheeses, meats and you could order crepes and lovely deep yellow omelettes. I don't really drink coffee, but I made an exception in this place, it was so good! Breakfast is served in the garden/courtyard, which is nicely laid out with flowers in the borders and vines overhead.
The hotel itself is well located near to St Mark's square and vaporetto stops at San Angelo, which is also close to the Rialto Bridge. There are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby (we liked La Caravella). The decor in the hotel is classy and modern but with grand Venetian touches such as the piano in the lounge and the decorative ceiling in our room. The room was large and comfortable (we didn't have a canal view, but this didn't matter) and had nice touches such as an iPad in the room and a bag of fresh fruit on arrival. The toiletries were also high quality. This is a great base for exploring Venice but also a great place to just relax and luxuriate.
It wasn't cheap but you get what you pay for and I'd definitely stay here again, it's a very romantic hotel in a romantic city!
