"Very nice, roomy, awesome location and staff."
This hotel is a short distance (and I mean a U.S.'city' block or a few blocks) from San Marco Basillica, Rialto Bridge, Doge's Palace, the Grand Canal, the boardwalk along the lagoon, Hard Rock Cafe, lots of restaurants, tons of shopping and a good place to catch a gondolier ride. Sooo awesome. We loved the location. You can lean out the window to watch (and sometimes listen to singing) gondoliers. The apartment had a bedroom with a comfy King size bed and there's a hide-a-bed sofa in the kitchen room for our kids. There was a T.V. in the kitchen room, a table big enough for 4 to eat at, plus it has a nice size half fridge, a stove, hot water pot, microwave, sink, some dishes. If you want pots and pans, use of the dishwasher or the clothes washer/dryer that is extra 50 Euros. We didn't need the extra stuff, we were great having the fridge, hot pot, microwave. The decor and style of the room is not the fanciest you will ever see but it was perfectly clean and in excellent repair- nothing seemed worn out or needing replacement. The staff was consistently warm, helpful, and efficient from our first arrival to our last departure.... they really could not have been better or nicer or more professional. Our room was cleaned promptly after our first morning outing.We got lots of helpful info. for the asking at the front desk. They called a water taxi for us (the night before) so we had a ride to the airport right from the hotel (spendy, but I recommend it). Venice is very beautiful!
