We could not have asked for a better hotel to stay at in Venice! The location is on the Grand Canal across from the Piazza San Marco. This area is quieter and has many great galleries and shops as well as being right near the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. It is an easy walk to Piazza San Marco or an even easier Vaparetto ride (water bus)... there is also the traghetto which is a gondola to take you across to the other side. The hotel is the only modern, "boutique" type hotel I found in my search and it did not disappoint. Housed in a beautiful old palace, the hotel is thoroughly modern, well designed and comfortable inside. We had 2 rooms which I believe were amongst the smaller rooms but more than ample with oversized beautiful baths. The lobby and dining room are chic and elegant and overlook the canal. Having breakfast in the all white dining room with the canal unfolding in front of you is an experience. The breakfast was fantastic and the service in the dining room was superb. The front desk staff, especially Emanuelle and Mauro made the trip all the more enjoyable by arranging restaurant reservations and for a boat trip to Murano. A water taxi picked us up at the hotel's dock and took us without charge, and back, to the island where we were given a demonstration of the glass being made. Of course the hope is one will buy something and one cant resist buying something even it is a small souvenir item so this is a worthwhile activity (all in under 90 mins)....All the staff were friendly, helpful and would know which keys to give us when we returned back to the hotel. We were with two 14 year old nephews who were very impressed by this stylish hotel as were we....The staff even helped arrange for a special "thank you" cake that our nephews presented to us on our last day. I would return in a heartbeat to this hotel and recommend it to anyone visiting Venice.
