A charming hotel in the grandest of styles. Situated in the neighbourhood of Cannaregio, it feels like you are living with real Venetians (as opposed to only tourists). There will of course be tourists...this is Venice...but much less than in San Marco. (The hotel offers a private water shuttle at appointed times to San Marco if you miss the crowds.)
The hotel itself is stunning, with a wonderful back garden that has been written about a hundred times here on TripAdvisor. It's lovely, as is the buffet breakfast (with cooked options) and even the coffee supplied in the rooms is first rate. We had Acqua di Parma bath amenities in our junior suite- which was a room well worth upgrading to if you can. Wifi was fast, and the staff were awesome.
We had an opportunity to interact with the hotel's General Manager before, during and after our stay and it is clear that she does an excellent job training her staff and appreciating the loyalty of frequent guests.
I had one unfortunate interaction with Fillipo on the front desk when asking for a bottle of water on the second day of my stay. He quite firmly informed me that it was provided ONCE per stay, and not on a daily basis. He could have perhaps communicated this in a softer, more diplomatic manner, as I still remembered his manner whilst writing this.
Otherwise- the stay was flawless. I would recommend the hotel to anyone.
This hotel has easy access to all water taxi's it was quiet and clean and very enjoyable to stay in. The hotel staff were very kind and went out of their way to meet your needs. WE only stayed one nite but we enjoyed our stay and the area. WE loved it so much we got back to the hotel around 2:30 AM and sat on the dock it was so peaceful. Well done if you have time book this hotel.
