We stayed for four nights last week as part of a 9 night trip (2 nights in Venice, 3 nights in Vienna). As this is where we were staying for the longest time, we really wanted to get a good hotel, which we did. We both loved everything about the hotel, from arriving to a smiley, friendly, helpful member of staff who told us everything about the hotel/the area, and even upgraded us for free to a beautiful room overlooking the river and the Ponte Vecchio, throughout until we left.
The room was lovely - very spacious and calming. The bed was huge and everything was v.clean. All the staff we met during our stay were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was great, with a wide variety of options and friendly staff ensuring you are enjoying it. The roof bar is incredible - the only thing is that the drinks are slightly pricey, but so worth it to the extent where it wasn't a problem. Brilliant views, great drinks, and vibrant atmosphere in the evening where is gets pretty busy. The relaxing rooms are great too, where you can chill out on the day-beds while people watching at the Ponte Vecchio (it really is THAT close!). Being close, we never heard ANY noise until we opened our window - which was only really to look at the river and take photographs as the air con was required more the rest of the time. It's in a great location for everything, and also next to a very cool Leica shop (which resulted in our stay being more expensive than planned, oops!).
Cannot fault it at all! We miss the Continentale!!
