"Large, elegant rooms at a very convenient location "
The hotel is a short walk from Piazza San Marco. However if you are arriving by water taxi, they could drop you off practically at the lobby, that is if there is no "high tide" when you arrive. It is located in a very densely touristic area, but the rooms which are large and confortable are quiet. There is no lobby, only a small counter with 2 chairs which gives the impression of a cheap hotel, but the rooms are very, very nice with period furniture, murano chandeliers, rich draperies and a good size bathroom. Breakfast, which is served in the sister hotel a short block away, is basic but adequate to keep you fed until lunch time.
"Lovely little hotel in the heart of Venice "
We stayed here for one night to celebrate my birthday. The staff were really friendly and helpful. They also had surprised me with a lovely looking pastry in our room on our arrival. The room was nicely decorated with a Venetian style. I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay in Venice. It was in a perfect location as well, just a minute away from St Mark's square.
"Fantastic city and a wonderful honeymoon hotel"
We arrived at the hotel on Christmas day just before midnight by water taxi from the airport. The concierge was very friendly and welcoming, all of the staff we dealt with were really helpful. We loved every moment we spent there and embraced our time in Venice. I don't think that we could find any negatives about this hotel. We would definitely return. Our suite overlooked the Bridge of Sighs, where we ate breakfast delivered to our room. We had a 4 poster bed and an incredible chandelier which the sun hit every morning lighting up the room. Breakfast was sumptuous with fresh croissant, cereals, toast cake hot chocolate or coffee and fruit salad. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The rooms were kept clean, beds made and the towels changed daily even though we didn't have early starts. The location was fabulous with everything to see within walking distance and we had great fun watching the gondalas setting up each morning under our window and the tourists finding their way across the bridges. Thanks to everyone who made our honeymoon truly wonderful.
"Cant understand the negative reviews!"
Having read through some of the reviews before we arrived, we had got ourselves a little nervous at what we were going to be greeted with: rude staff and cold rooms being a couple of the things that worried us slightly. However couldn't have been further from our experience. Every staff member we met was warm, attentive, chatty and couldn't have been more helpful with any information we needed. The room we stayed in (150) was outstanding! Clean, warm and beautifully decorated. The view of "The Bridge of Sighs" from our bedroom window was just another perk. Wasn't too noisy, yes you have people walking past or the gondola attendees chatting outside but the windows are modern and double glazed so it's quite well blocked out, but given the area you would expect to hear some life. We didn't watch the tv so cannot comment on any English channels there may have been available. Shower was powerful and hot, again no complaints there. If there was one thing I would note is that there is no coffee in the room, just a selection of fruit teas and no milk. However we asked the reception for some and they gave us the choice of hot or cold and brought it to the room for us! We were given the choice of breakfast in our room (for no extra cost) or at their sister hotel just around the corner, I wouldn't let the fact that you have to walk there put you off, it's literally 10 seconds away. Couldn't fault this hotel or the service we received at all and we will definitely be going back in a few months time and will be staying here again! Thank you
We booked online without really knowing anything about the hotel. Only the location...... The place was fantastic value for money considering the location. 50 yards from the beautiful Piazza st Marco. Very clean, excellent breakfast at the sister hotel only a 20 meter walk away and very very helpful and friendly staff!
