The hotel is new and beautiful. It is located next to one of the boat bus stops which Is convenient. Internet is $10 euros for the entire stay per device. The breakfast was included and had many options to choose from. The hotel staff is friendly but beware of the Murrano island Glass tour & tourist trap. The hotel staff encourages you to take a free boat taxi to the island of Murrano to watch glass be made. When you get there you watch how it is made for 10 minutes and are then put in a one on one high pressure sales situation. Guests are led to believe they will get a far superior product with all shipping and duties/taxes included in the very high prices of these items. We later learned this is not true, with previous customers complaining that they had been hit with huge shipping and duty/tax costs on delivery. After you are done with the tour and paperwork for whatever purchases made they ship you off the island so that you cannot see anything else on the island. This whole experience really soured our impression of Venice and the hotel for its recommendation. I would hope the hotel would stop this practice as it could ruin their reputation because it really is a beautiful hotel.
