Great Hotel with Four-Poster beds

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 11, 2013

We only spent one night here, and it was a comfortable stay. The rooms are very large, and the one we had was extra large. The Four Poster bed was a novelty, with great soft silky linen sheets and big windows.
Bathroom luxurious and tiled, with black marble fittings. Bath and Shower. Quality toiletries.
Breakfast was included in the price, and there was a wide range of food- hot and cold.
This hotel is within easy walking distance to Piazza San Marco, and almost next door to the Opera House.
The service was efficient and friendly.
What I also liked was that it is on a side canal, so nice to watch Gondolas go by, and easy access should you need a water-taxi. The Hotel can arrange transportation should you need help.
They have free wifi and a bar area on the rooftop, which has what they call a 'Trust Bar' - which means you help yourself to any drinks, and just put down in the ledger what you have taken, Nice outdoor sitting balcony.There are elevators in hotel for easy access.

Unique Quality: Lovely modern fittings and quality furnishing & carpets
Cleanliness
Good service

Directions: San Marco 2009 - Venice 30124 (Italy) near the Opera House

A Hotel that Hits All the Right Notes

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 2, 2013

“What stillness! What beauty! Looking out from the high windows of our hotel I felt it was a pity to go to bed. Venice was more beautiful than romance had feigned.”
— George Eliot (Mary Anne Evans 1819-1880) wrote upon her arrival in Venice with Charles L. Lewes on the night of 4.June.1860

I loved this hotel! Its close proximity to Piazza San Marco, only a seven-minute walk, made it convenient, not only to the heart Venice, but also to other sights, such as Ponte dell’Accademia. It is a well-situated hotel. That seven-minute distance, though, was a world away from the noise and crowds of the famous piazza. The hotel was quiet and peaceful.

Like George Eliot, I too had trouble pulling myself to go to sleep in our spacious, corner room. With two high windows looking out over Fondamenta de le Veste, room #103 had a fascinating view of canal life. From the early-morning delivery of linens to our hotel or fresh vegetables being brought to the nearby restaurants to the early-evening gondola rides that passed by, I was captivated by the life of Venice floating by. The bed was comfortable. The room was clean. Charming touches included: the room’s terrazzo floor was styled to look like a giant carpet; and the chandelier, made on the Venetian glass-making island of Murano, had calla lily-shaped shades. A daybed provided a place, other than the bed, to relax. A writing desk and chair made writing cards a breeze. The WiFi worked perfectly each day.

The bathroom, too, was roomy. The one drawback in the bathroom: lack of a shower curtain or glass panel. This meant we had to sit in the bathtub, using the hand-held spray nozzle, to ‘shower’ each morning. This was a minor inconvenience; we quickly adjusted.

The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was plentiful, if standard fare. This included croissants, fruit, yogurt, bread, coffee, tea, meats, cheeses, cereals, etc.

Directions, found at the hotel’s web site, to the hotel from the vaporetto stop at Piazza San Marco are spot on. Between the vaporetto stop and the hotel there are only three bridges to cross with your luggage. We had no trouble finding the hotel. Restaurants in the area are very good. Antico Martini Ristorante and Vino Vino Ristorante are around the corner.
