Surpassed our expectations
Posted 03-May-2017 on Hotels
This was our third trip to Italy, but our first time in Venice. It was also the third week of a three week trip that we, quite honestly, didn't think could get any better. But it did; and that was due, in large part, to our stay at the Hotel Bucintoro. We loved this Hotel . The entire staff were friendly, very welcoming and so accommodating. Giuliano was so kind as to contact me via email before our arrival to offer us a boat trip to Murano. We regret that we were not able to do this, as we ran out of time. Stephano was also very gracious and helpful offering suggestions of restaurants that we really enjoyed. The breakfast was excellent, offering a variety of delicious options. We were very satisfied (maybe a little too satisfied) each morning. The location is great; it's a convenient distance from St. Mark's Square but just enough outside the area of main attractions to not be affected by the commotion and hustle bustle of the crowds. We enjoyed our walks back each night after dinner. But the best part, we both agreed, was the view of the city and the Grand Canal from our room and the terrace. It was breathtakingly beautiful and it made our stay in Venice unforgettable. We so enjoyed our time on that terrace taking in that gorgeous view. We would definitely return and would not hesitate to recommend the Hotel Bucintoro to anyone visiting Venice. It couldn't possibly get any better than this. Thankyou for an amazing experience!
