We were pleasantly surprised how wonderful the hotel turned out to be as it was the perfect fusion of Venetian style with modern amenities. Our room looked exactly like it did on the website. We especially were impressed with the bathroom as it was modern with an enclosed-shower door with a big rain shower-head, a hair dryer, and even a supply of soap, shampoo and conditioner. The bed was comfortable and air conditioning was a plus. The hotel was beautiful, clean, and convenient as it was only a few minute walk to St. Mark's Square and the Rialto Bridge. It is located in a small alley that leads out to a quiet canal with a few gondolas stationed there. The receptionists were very helpful with information and allowed us to store our luggage before and after we checked out. The hotel provides a map on the website so we had no problems finding it. The breakfast was more than I expected with a spread of juices, cereals, pastries, meats, chocolate cake, and coffee. I'd recommend to email the hotel ahead of time to confirm how much you are paying and again when you check in since there is the room charge, city tax, and tourist tax added, which is not included in the price listed online. It's best to pay in cash since there is a discount for doing so. We look forward to staying here again on our next visit to Venice!
