Major sights and opera on the doorstep.
I came to Venice for opera and chose the Hotel La Fenice Et Des Artistes because it is next door to the opera house, hidden away in a courtyard ... very convenient and the major sights are not far away. I came by water taxi from the airport and the driver's directions to the hotel through narrow alleys were exact though the hotel had already forwarded guidance via email but via a different route.
My reception was welcoming and straightforward. A 'porter' took my luggage to my room. This was on the 4th floor but the lift goes to the 3rd floor only .. perhaps not for someone with a mobility problem.
The 'green' room was small and the facilities smaller but adequate enough for a solo traveler. It faced out over rooftops and not a canal or the Taverna courtyard ... so the room was quiet AND there was a 'personal' terrace. The aircon was very good. The bed and mattress was firm and, for me, comfortable. Linen was changed daily.
Breakfast consisted of the 'basic', cold staples and was good enough to set me up for the day.
Dining in the Taverna or a drink on the courtyard was quality experience - with hotel dining discount. The steak was excellent and people watching from the terrace was fun.
I was more than content, here, and I shall return.
