Ok, top 10 rated hotel anyway so you expect it to be good. It was. We had room 106. Massive by our standards, very high ceiling, fab chandelier and decor. Small bathroom (powerful shower, no bath) with heated floor. Massive and comfortable bed, aircon, flatscreen TV connected to the web - which was useful - but free wifi in all the hotel - just ask for extra code (s) if you have more than one device.
All staff were friendly, accommodating and helpful. Used the bar only one night - but friendly. did not use the restaurant - but the menu looked fantastic.
Room was at the canal side - and as there was some renovations going on nearby and everything in Venice is done via a canal - got a bit noisy at 7:30am with people and material arriving for the days building works on the house opposite. But hardly intrusive, especially on the second morning as we knew what it was so could easily ignore it. Otherwise perfectly quiet.
Breakfast was included in our deal - in our view it was perfect - a small selection of hot food -, but copious amounts of pastries, cakes, fruit, yogurt, cheeses, cold meats, breads etc. coffee tea, juices - as much as you liked.
The spa is on the top floor is small but we thought good value, and we were mid week - it was quiet so felt very private. Great view if you go outside on the roof.
We had a great time and really enjoyed being in the hotel and the room - we intend to return to Venice again and will stay here.
