We loved the hotel and the staff, we would recommend this hotel to anyone of our friends or family and we know they wouldn't be disappointed.
Getting to the Hotel: If arriving from the airport then you can opt to take the water bus which is only 15 euros but have to walk a bit to the hotel. If you are not familiar with the area or have a GPS then you may have some trouble navigating the narrow corridors of Venice. We made that mistake but ended up hiring a porter for 40 Euro to take our 3 large bags and guide us to the hotel from San Marco. Leaving Venice we took a taxi to the train station and it was a much better option although pricey. Honestly after taking the water taxi it's nice to get a taste of Venice from the water.
Checking In: Michael was there on our check in. It was nice to finally arrive and Michael obviously could see that we were tired. After taking our passports he walked us upstairs to the terrace and told us to have a seat. From the 1st floor terrace we had a nice view of the square in front of the hotel and it was great to finally sit down. After all the paperwork was done he showed us to our room and minutes later they brought us our bags. Very pleasant check in experience.
The Room: The room had high ceilings and was a large size room. The bathroom was small but did the job and was clean. The beds were very comfortable and that was a blessing. We were traveling with our daughter and my mother in law and both their single beds were as comfortable as our king bed. Although we had two large windows they opened to one of the side streets so not much of a view, but it was nice to open once in a while and get some fresh air in the room.
Location: We loved the location. We love to walk and explore and from this location you can pretty much get to any of the main attractions in Venice within 10 minutes if you don't stop at the great stores getting to the attractions. Venice is not that large anyway and getting around is not that difficult once your there, but it was nice to be a bit away from the main attractions. Bonus is you get better prices on the touristy type of stuff.
