This hotel could not have been any better! The staff were extremely helpfual and friendly. We were supposed to be getting a train down to Pisa, and there was a 24 hour public transport strike - the receptionist Francesco spent ages on the phone, and arranged us a hire car instead. We were very grateful.
The location was close enough to walk to all the attractions, San Marco, Rialto Bridge, etc. The terrace out front where we had breakfast was lovely, you could watch gondolas going past as you sat there. It was equally lovely to sit and have a drink there at night.
the rooms were spotless, cleaned twice everyday, and we had chocolates left on our pillow every night, along with a little card with the weather forecast for the following day!
It was our honeymoon, so they gave us a free bottle of sparkling wine, which was chilled and waiting for us in the room when we arrived.
The breakfast was the best of all the 4 hotels we stayed at during our time in italy - bacon, eggs, toast, lots of fruit, yogurts, pastries etc, all delicious.
All in all this hotel was absolutely perfect for us, it was very quiet too, with good air conditioning and good shutters on the windows.
Would recommend this hotel to anyone who is going to Venice!!!
