"Space to relax"
Can only echo the many other comments praising this hotel. From the first day to the last every staff member we met seeming to enjoy being there and enjoy us being there. Excellent location; easy walking to the main sites but back away enough for peace and quiet. If you stay, order breakfast in. This way you miss the ordinary breakfast experience in the partner hotel around the corner while making the most of the luxury room...
So pleased we chose this hotel. Firstly, it was in the absolutely perfect location, a short, but far enough walk from St Marks square. It was also at the end of a street, so it was not a thoroughfare, it was a quiet location. Some reviews point out it was a little tired. If I am honest, it was in places, but mainly in the communal areas. It was not a problem though, we found it perfectly delightful and charming. Even though some areas might be described as tired, it was clean. The entrance lobby is quite small, but the staff, whoever you met at whatever time of day were always polite and helpful and anyway, I don`t book a hotel so sit in the reception! The room (Junior suite,) was quite large with high ceilings and a Murano glass chandelier. It was good value for money for sure. Plenty of character. Bed seemed huge, and was very comfortable, (if you like a firm bed.) Bathroom was large with a Jacuzzi and over bath shower. It was difficult showering because of soaking the place, it was just the way the shower and screen had been arranged. Hoped to have a view of the bridge of sighs, but not in this room, had a street view, but not bothered particularly by that. I do not know if other junior suites have that view. You can have breakfast delivered to your room. It comes from a sister hotel across the street. You could also just nip across the street and eat there. All in all, we had a great few days in Venice helped by this hotel, and would certainly return. Thank you.
"Absolutely wonderful "
We stayed four nights at this gem. Perfect location just behind St Marks Square. The room was beautiful and comfortable. We took the option of room service for breakfast and the food and service could not be faulted. The staff were all friendly and extremely helpful. There are many restaurants in the surrounding streets and a great little bar just down the road. Would highly recommend this hotel
"Lovely hotel in a superb location"
This hotel is just a couple of minutes walk from St Mark's square and overlooks one of the most iconic bridges (Bridge of Sighs) in Venice. The Water taxi from the airport dropped us off at a door facing the canal which was straight into hotel reception. Our room was a good size and overlooked the canal (make sure you ask for a canal facing room). It was elegantly decorated and had a decent sized bathroom. The bed was very comfortable. All the staff were super friendly and very helpful.Raphael brought us breakfast to our room each morning which he produced with great good humour, pride and flourish. The breakfast menu (filled out the previous night) had plenty of choice and was more than adequate. I recommend this hotel highly
"Fantastic Rooms and Location"
You will be metres (1' walking distance from San Marco Piazza) overlooking -like we had from our room- the ponte dei sospiri from a privileged angle. The rooms are large, quaint but not old, and very well appointed. Elegant and stylish. The toilette was big and spacey with all necessary amenities. Wifi worked very well and was complimentary. The TV channels on offer were not great though but they don't spent much time watching TV in Venice. Breakfast is served to you by way of room service (at no charge) and delivered on time at the moment of your choosing. This is because the hotel lobby is tiny and does not have a restaurant to accommodate people. It was a great experience and I would highly recommend this property to anyone in Venice. Location is great and the quality of the hotel is on par with it.
