Having reviewed so many hotels, we came across this one on Tripadvisor – if you like stunning original properties refurbished in contemporary décor, this is for you!
We loved our stay from start to finish. Thanks to all the great tips from previous reviews, we found the hotel very easily from the nearest Vaporetto stop, Sa Toma, with the assistance of a good street map (essential!) Thanks also to reviewers for the photo of Calle Corner, the narrow alleyway to the hotel – it was good to know what we were looking for and didn’t in anyway feel unsafe (or in the whole of Venice).
The hotel is beautiful – gorgeous décor, very well maintained and super stylish. Our luxury room (17) was fabulous – spacious and stunning! The whole hotel is very warm, even during a really cold spell, so we were pleased to have good sized windows we could leave open all night. The only downside to this is that our room overlooked a refuge collection point on the opposite side of the canal, so barge noises started fairly early in the morning, but this wasn’t invasive and it was interesting to have an insight into residents’ life. The lighting throughout the hotel is very subdued but we knew this and it does add to the charm. Bathroom lighting is very flattering (i.e. not bright!) but again not a problem.
The hotel was very quiet during our stay, (December is tranquil in Venice) which was perfect for us. We enjoyed a late night liqueur on the fabulous 2-seat balcony late at night, overlooking the stunning setting on the Grand Canal, wrapped up in coats and scarves – wonderful evening views!
Breakfast is a delight – all delivered straight to your table, with amazing fresh and ripe fruit. Coffee/teas are made to order and delivered with hams, cheeses, breads and far too enticing delicious freshly made pastries and croissants – a very relaxing experience although too tempting!
We loved our stay and were so pleased to have found this hotel – enjoy!
