"Nice hotel around ten minutes from St Marks Square"
We travelled from Lido de Jeslo and arrived at 11:00am after struggling to find the hotel. When we did, it was worth the searching. The staff were fabulous and the hotel was amazing. We requested room 301 which we had recommended to us by friends...we were not disappointed. It was beautiful. The decor was unbelievable and the king size bed was so luxurious.
It was our 30th wedding anniversary and we mentioned this at the time of booking. What a lovely surprise to find that we had a bottle on prosecco on ice with compliments of the hotel. We even got bathrobes and slippers, umbrellas if needed (gladly we didn't use them). We opted for the prepaid breakfast which was a godsend as it was quite pricey and although limited, there was a choice to suit most taste.
When we explained to the staff that we had a problem finding our way around the local area, they politely said that if we got lost they would rescue us if necessary and gave us a detailed map along with the hotel telephone number. Although we didn't need it, it gave us the confidence to explore the narrow streets confidentley.
The only substandard elements was that the plug in the washbasin (it wouldn't pop up to let the dirty water escape) and there was a light bulb out. We couldn't get the television to function but that could have been that we didn't operate it properly. The balcony door was rather stiff to unlock but even so, I would definately recommend room 301 with its little quaint but adequate balcony
This hotel is in a perfect location; top tourism sights in close proximity, gondolas by your doorstep and with a private courtyard to relax in when you need to retreat. Complimentary drinks and biscuits and great staff too, especially the attentive and gracious breakfast lady.
I loved this hotel and would recommend it to anyone going to Venice to do the typical tourist things! The location was RIGHT BY ST. MARK'S SQUARE AND RIGHT NEXT TO THE WATER! Breakfast was included, the rooms were gorgeous, and I had absolutely no complaints. The staff was incredibly helpful and even let us check in really early (like 11am). Will stay here again!
Fantastic view of Venice Lagoon, great traditional decor, double glazing and black out blinds were a nice touch making it silent and dark if you wanted, Amazing roof top restaurant where the food and service was excellent and the view was to die for.
Bordering San Marco and the Rialto and stretching east to some of Venice's quietest greenest parts, Castello is the city's most varied 'sestiere'. Its most famous aspect is the Riva degli Schiavoni waterfront next to the Bridge of Sighs, with picture-postcard views onto the lagoon. Yet a few yards from the tourist hoards, the backstreets are quiet and typically Venetian. There are many outstanding churches and art collections in this area.
