Had not been back to this lovely hotel in 45 years and it is still a beauty, the rooms up-dated in an old world style. The restaurant is terrific. The waiter who brought my cappuccino at 3:00 am, my wake up call, was a gem, quiet tap at door, whispering so as not to disturb others; oh that cappuccino was fabulous.
"Lovely hotel BUT"
Of course this is a stunning hotel in an even more stunning location. BUT we arrived by vaporetto, so entered via the front revolving doors, which are not the easiest to enter with luggage. Struggling through, we were not given any help at all. Then a long wait at reception for our room. It was after 2, and the room wasn't ready. But they were kind enough to make up for the wait and the room not being ready to upgrade us to a fabulous room looking over the lagoon, which also wasn't ready. They said they would call when it was, in around 45 minutes. Finally around 5 the room was ready - 3 hours later! The breakfast was excellent, on the balcony, but the staff were really unfriendly. I did not want to sit at the back of the terrace and see nothing, I wanted to be nearer the front, as did everyone else, but when other tables became free, they shrugged their shoulders and put other guests there. And then the pigeons that invade as soon as you leave the table to go to the buffet and attack the table. Again, they just shrug their shoulders and say someone must be left at the table to fend off the pigeons. Not good enough for a hotel of this quality. I had jasmine tea, and asked for another pot. I was given a different tea. Why' Simple enough to see what I'd just had but it was typical that they just couldn't be bothered. Again not good enough. Breakfast was not an agreeable experience. This is a very expensive hotel and I think I would go somewhere else next time. I was really disappointed.
This magnificent hotel is situated in the heart of the most picturesque city in the world. It’s decor is tasteful and historic while being stunning and refreshing as one never sees this in today’s world. Our room was exquisite and had every amenity we could need. The staff was superb having gone to great extents to accommodate our every need. All are to be commended. In fact, their care and concern would be reflected by an owner, not a worker. What a pleasant surprise!! If it sounds as though we couldn’t say anything bad, it’s because we would be hard pressed too as nothing was wrong with this establishment .
"Absolutely breathtaking hotel"
From the moment you stepped into the hotel lobby, you will be stunned speechless from every piece of marble and every piece of furniture to the extravagant chandeliers WOW is the only word I'm managed to utter. The journey to the suite, never less is an unforgettable experience, with the luxurious carpet, wall papers and their antiques. Suite is wonderfully designed, clean and large bathroom. This hotel has 2 wings. Ask to stay at their classic wing The hotel looks exactly like the picture. And, another thing is loved their room key. You need to stay here to get what I meant. Money is definitely well spent :-)
"A beautiful, spacious room overlooking the lagoon"
The room overlooking the waterfront and service were excellent as expected. Eating breakfast on the open rooftop was like sitting in box seats at a wonderful concert, overlooking everything. Lunch was a different story. Still beautiful, still well presented and tasteful, but OMG how expansive. That said , I might just do it again.
