We have just come back from a 3 night stay at this wonderful boutique hotel. I can say that it is one of the best boutique hotels I have ever stayed in. The location is good just near the Rialto and 5 minutes from a vaporetto stop.
The building is very pleasant and well laid out. The building has been restored to a very high standard and the rooms are fitted out with top of the range fittings. The beds are really comfortable. Our room on the 2nd floor was incredibly quiet and overlooked a small canal. We could hear the birds singing with the windows open!
The hotel booked a water taxi for us for €110 from the airport which was well worth it. When we arrived at the motorboat desk at the airport to pick up the boat they offerred us a return for €100 if we booked and paid there and then which we did. The boat arrived as agreed 4 days later to whisk us back to the airport. Wonderful service.
We went to an amazing performance of Madam Butterfly at La Fenice which is only 5 minutes away from the hotel. I booked on line a few months before. Its a wonderful opera house and a really great night out.
The breakfast was amongst the best I have had. The owner really puts a lot of care into it and lays out an amazing spread of interesting Italian delicacies. In every way the owners attention to detail shows through.
The staff were lovely and attentive and helped us book restaurants and plan routes.
We were following recommendations on restaurants from the English cookbook Polpo, and we had some marvellous meals as a result. I can highly recommend the book and the list of bars, bacaria and restaurants. I can recommend, Al Covo (dinner), Alle Testiere (both), Paradiso Perduto (lunch). We went to Cip Club at the Cipriani for dinner which was nice but less good than the others.
We will be back because this place is a haven of peace and elegance in a city that can at times be a little busy.
