Reviewed 18 August 2014

We stayed here as a group of 10. Prior to our arrival we made a variety of requests through the hotel and found them to be very accommodating.
On arrival our rooms weren't ready but we had booked lunch on the terrace so it was suggested we proceed to the terrace. The table was laid out ready for us but we had drinks at our leisure first without feeling rushed into sitting down.
All our rooms were different but everyone was impressed with them. Our room opened into a spacious sitting area which you accessed the bedroom from. The décor was beautiful, the bed comfortable and we had a choice of a bath or shower. We were genuinely impressed with our room.
The hotel is in a great location and we very quickly came to Venice's main attractions. The hotel were happy to arrange water taxis for us so we visited Murano, Burano and also ate at Cips Club.
I read there are only 31 rooms in the hotel, and it is a quiet hotel, the most people we saw was at breakfast.
Our first evening meal was in the hotel and was the best so I'll write a review on the restaurant.
In summary, a beautiful hotel in a great location which I would not hesitate to recommend and would certainly return to.

We stayed at the apartment they manage close to St. Marks square. It was impressive, the views the space and the comfort. Great option for big groups or families with kids.

The only thing to consider is that you to go upstairs 4 floors, as the building has no elevator.

When in there, you can see the top of the Basilica and the square clocks from your window! Awesome!

Room Tip: This room was not at the hotel per se, it is big apartment steps from St. Marks!

We had our wedding in Venice and chose the Alle Corone for our wedding lunch. They were quite simply the best people we have ever dealt with, they understood our every need and requirement and went way beyond this.

They created a fantastic, traditional Venetian menu for us and prepared it to exacting standards. The staff were attentive but not over bearing, serving us with accuracy. Nobody's glass was left empty at any point.

The food was sublime, steak done to perfection, the lamb cooked perfectly pink. The sorbet was refreshing and creamy. Not one guest could say anything but perfect.


This restaurant is what I would call high end. The manager, Andreas, was a consummate professional who was on hand at all times with no request to much.

Be confident here. Venetian food can be a little unpredictable at times but this restaurant is a beacon of culinary genius.

All I can say is 5 out of 5. It is truly that good.

Yes, we read the reviews and were thrilled when we pulled up on a stinking hot day in our water taxi to step off into this little oasis in the heart of Venice. It was perfect for retreating into after succumbing to the hordes of travellers clogging the streets. The rooms are spacious, well appointed and well maintained. Only one quibble...the concierge staff need to know a bit more about Venice and what to do. Not much help when an indifferent staff member says "Murano". I know there is a huge amount of stuff to see and do in this place, otherwise it would not be so super busy. So I would like the staff to take a course on the sights and history, the eating places and meeting places of this little gem SO THEY CAN PASS THAT ONTO WE TOURISTS.

Great location, great staff, comfortable upscale Venetian rooms and common areas.
On a quiet canal near Rialto Bridge yet only 5-6 minutes walk to San Marco, if you know the less traveled back way! Nice breakfast, cozy bar for a pre-dinner spritz or that one last finishing drink. Nice linens, generous baths that Americans can splash around in, excellent housekeeping, Free WiFi - 8 devices between 2 couples - what else could you ask for? Ok, very good restaurants all around. Look for our reviews.
