We had a room on the top floor looking out over the Grand Canal and the rooftops of Venice. It was quiet and very peaceful sitting on the room's balcony each afternoon. The hotel is very well located. The water taxi ride from the airport is entertaining in and of itself and a perfect entree to the city and the hotel. Our room was clean, spacious and well appointed. The staff were friendly and helpful to us. There are good dining choices within the hotel itself including a bar right on the Grand Canal. Perfect spot for a romantic interlude! There are also numerous other dining venues within walking distance of the hotel. We had free WiFi which was reasonably fast. The concierge staff were very good with helpful suggestions of places to visit and how to get there. They also looked after our transfers and luggage seamlessly. Not an inexpensive hotel but great value for money in our opinion. This is our first time to visit and we will go back.
