Quiet, Central Hotel near Opera and St. Marks
Our room, 87, overlooked the patio restaurant, which was under renovation. It might be noisy in the evening when it's open and people are eating but it was nice and quiet for us. The balcony was great to sit, have some wine and look out over the rooftops. The restaurant food and service was very good but the place is busy so a reservation may be needed. Or, you can walk around and find one of many small restaurants within a 3 block radius that are just as good and can be cheaper.
Being 3-4 blocks from St. Marks Square was great and walking all over Venice is a great way to find small stores of all kinds. Go left out of the hotel, take the first left and walk 3 blocks to the newly rebuilt Opera Theatre. Carmen was playing and it was wonderful to be in a stage-side box 5 feet from the actors.
The hotel breakfast is very good and has a wide variety of pastries, cereal, eggs, juices, cheeses, meats and so on. We ate breakfast, a sandwich and glass of wine for lunch and an early, for Italy, dinner at 7 and were satisfied. If you are coming from the airport, the 15 Euro public boat drops you at Giglio stop, a 5 block walk. The 70 Euro "shared" taxi drops you at Trinia, just 2 blocks away.
All in all, a very nice hotel deserving it's 4 and 1/2 stars.
