    A great location 4-5 stops on the water bus at s Stae from the rail station,,, a very tastefully modern interior in a beautiful old building with facilities over looking the Grand Canal. 20 mins walk to St Marcos and 15 to Rialto was perfect as it allowed escape from the tourists and opportunity to appreciate some 'local' eateries. We had a junior suite which was wonderful with a large bathroom and a wonderful shower. The hotel offered 3 stately lounge areas which offered a welcome respite from walking the wonderful streets and canals of Venice. For the less mobile a water bus pass for 3-4 days will ensure an easy ride to the tourist epi centre.

    Staff were fantastic and very accomodating! Location for us was perfect!! Vaporetto stop line #1 right outside our door!! Breakfast was great, lots of selection and better than most we experienced throughtout Italy! More expensive than what we are normally used to but all in all a great experience and I would do it all over again in exactly the same place!!!! Thanks for a "room with a view" the Grand Canal is so very unique! Great place to people watch!

    Very good

    The hotel and room were of a good standard. Staff was friendly and helpful

    Just be careful when booking a room that says 'disability access'. These rooms are specially equipt for disabled people,and not as we thought it meant that the hotel had wheelchair access. Also make sure that the room is facing the canal, otherwise it loses some of the effect that you were hoping for when booking a 4 star hotel.

    Availability. Interesting location close to San Stie vaparretto stop. Yet near church and quieter areas. Staff helpful and attentive. Would go back to it when returning to Venice.

    Fabulous

    The hotel though was in a great location and they were very helpful with booking a gondola trip.

    The staff at breakfast were notvery welcoming and we had to ask numerous times for tea and coffee. We had an issue with the price of our stay when booking out as they wanted to charge us for an upgrade we had not requested which put a downer on the stay. Luckily enough I had a copy of our emails.

    The staff were friendly and very helpful. We were booked for Jumior suite with canal views anyway as the view was the priority. When we arrived we were upgraded to the Foscarini suite which was extra romantic with balcony views and a huge fireplace with mouldings.. It completely made our stay. The jet bath was relaxing and the bathroom suite attractive.

    There were very few small things which did not detract from a gorgeous stay, but they may be important to someone. We found the bed over firm as were the pillows. The gap between the two twin beds joined together was a little less romantic! The breakfast was perfectly nice but could be improved with some granola or muesli. Partner checked out whilst I finished my shower but the checking out process turned off the electricity!

    Breakfast and staff unable to provide adequate breakfast such as hot eggs....only Junior waitress....kitchen staff unable to speak Italian or English. For the price and the standard of hotel , born out by the beautifully furnished rooms, the catering facilities were very poor!!! Reception staff very helpful

    Superb

    We stayed in one of the Junior Suites overlooking the canal for our honeymoon, which was lovely. A really good size of room and the triple windows and roof beams were lovely. The location is also lovely. It is out of the general tourist mayhem of the Rialto Bridge, but less than 10 minutes walk from the Rialto market. Also not too far from a lovely square with restaurants and bars all around.

    The canal view rooms are quite noisy, but the rooms are double glazed and there are shutters, but it is just a busy place.

    I loved the staff! I was there for the Venice Marathon 2012 which was the worst weather ever in Venice yet.. The staff made me feel great right before and right after when I reached the hotel... I will never forget it! The hotel is moreover located in such a good area, you can reach everything very easily... Clean and cosy
