The facility was fabulous. Tastefully renovated in 2007, it still has a fresh & new feeling that you won’t find in other properties in Venice.
The hotel is a 20 minute water taxi ride from San Marco, which only added to our pleasant adventure. There is a 10 euro charge for the water taxi per person, per stay, which is reasonable.
We took a public water taxi directly from the hotel to the airport for 15 euro pp. the trip takes an hour & a half, but you get to see most of the Venetian ports & also Murano, so we thought it was a nice 1.5 hours “on the water”.
During our stay, the Concierge also arranged a free, private water taxi from the hotel to a glass factory in Murano. After the tour, the water taxi dropped us off in San Marco.
Breakfast was over-the-top… amazing & delicious. Our best meals in Venice!
Our Executive King room was beautiful, spacious & comfortable, with a view looking into Venice mainland. However, we we unlucky in our 3 nights’ stay to have neighbors who came home drunk at 3am screaming & fighting every night, who disturbed an entire floor of other guests who chose to stay out of Venice for peace, quiet and a restful night of sleep. Security was called by other guests, besides myself. I think those guests should have been asked to leave the hotel, and I was shocked that they weren’t. Having bad guests next door interrupted our sleep & detracted from what was otherwise a perfect stay for us.
