How to Get There
Good location although felt the hotel lacked atmosphere, bar only opens 5-10pm (11pm at weekends),so this is not a hotel to relax in at night.
When I booked this hotel, I emailed in advance asking for a nice view etc as this was our wedding anniversary, ended up with a view of next doors washing & looking at the hotel website I think we had one of the smallest rooms in the hotel.
No welcome gift on arrival or slippers or robes ( all listed on hotel website)
Our anniversary was never acknowledged either.
This hotel is just rooms with a reception so don’t expect anything else.
The hotel is as advertised. Beautiful, central, clean, comfortable. Romantically hidden in one of those narrow streets, water road access on one side.
For a 4* hotel I had expected to be more helpful and proactive with the luggage.
It was very hard to get myself and the luggage on the public water taxi (€7.50 to Rialto), then having to walk through those narrow streets, totally overcrowded at a walking speed you would expect during a music festival. Sweltering heat without a breeze of air then trying to find the narrow road into someones backyard to turn for the hotel entrance. Finally arriving at my 4 star hotel expecting cooling aircon and a refreshing welcome drink, the reception was rather agnostic.
My room aircon was set to off and could not be turned on. I spent the night sweating with open window, comforted by my new friends, the mosquitoes.
Reception explained to me the next morning that aircon can only be set centrally, i.e. reception is setting your air temperature. Better make up your mind during the day of the temperature you might find comfortable at night. And make sure to inform reception. There was a freestanding box in my room that looked like it could have been the aircon unit.
After check out I thought to take a direct water taxi. Price is €80!! The hotel does not offer pooling customers although the check out rush hour is 10am. I bet most of us wanted to get back to the main station.
Luckily, during my excursions I saw a porter so I knew this service existed. The hotel did not bother to suggest the porter to me but agreed to call one.
You have a beautiful hotel, why blow it when it only takes small considerations that would make a world of difference for your tourist?!
Excellent location. Excellent value. Friendly and helpful staff. Off the beaten bath but still in the Center of everything and overlooking a beautiful canal. Great restaurants nearby. A wonderful stay in the heart of Venice. And it’s air conditioned in August! I’d return in a second.
The hotel is very good the staff are very nice and helpful. Spent 4 nights here quiet location and very convenient for major sights. I thought the room for a deluxe was a little small but other than that a great place.
Nice room. Tip ask front desk to set the room temperature. Simple private water taxi of euro 70 directly to hotel. St. Marks square and super restaurants along the way within 5 minute walk. Overall very pleasant stay.
