Location,5 minute walk to St. Mark's Square
Great location,very friendly & knowledgeable staff . Provided great service. Their restaurant and bar is fantastic and always full, so book early . This hotel has the authentic look of all buildings in Venice and interior décor to match so if you're looking for a modern /chain hotel then this is not for you but then it wouldn't be Venice.
We booked a water taxi from Airport and due to our unexpected late arrival , the taxi dropped us off at the hotel's back entrance which was extremely convenient and hassle free; for first time in Venice navigating streets a night could be very confusing. For pick up on our departure the location is just a walk down the street from the hotel's front door but a Porter was sent with us to help with our luggage. A service not provided by other hotels as I watched many tourists struggle with suitcases in hand while searching for their locations.
Definitely would stay here again, ( we didn't have a view of the canals but not necessary in my opinion as you will have ample opportunity to see them on your walks) absolutely no hesitation with this hotel.
Breakfast was included and exceptional with many delicious choices from a variety of coffees, juices , cereals & toasts served with a great selection of cheeses and meats , freshly made waffles and delectable fresh baked goods and of course Brioches .....delicious.No coffee in the room but every floor has a coffee & tea station.
