I research every hotel we stay in prior to booking. I knew exactly what we were getting before we got there. Our first contact with the hotel was via email asking the best way to arrive from the airport. They provide clear and concise options for us. We chose to take a short walk through the airport towards the water and take the Orange line which drops us near the hotel. It is an easy short 5 minute walk from where you are dropped off and easy to do with luggage.
We arrived early in the day so there wasn’t a room available for us but they held onto our luggage for us to start our day in Venice. The lobby is absolutely amazing to look at it which was expected in such an old city with so much charm. Once we returned to the hotel about 2 PM our room was ready and exactly what we expected. Clean with plenty of room to move around.
We chose not to do the breakfast because we wanted to experience some of the venetian cafes in the morning. While the hotel does offer service to St. Marks square, it’s a pleasant easy walk to the grand canal and the water buses are so easy to use there. It is part of the experience to immerse yourself into the culture of the city and this is definitely part of that culture. The hotel staff is friendly and great at making sure you have a map and know where you are going. Getting lost is part of the experience too. When facing the hotel there is a street to the very left which has a continuous water source that I understand is from the Swiss alps provides you a place to refill your water bottles with cold fresh water.
Not to far from the hotel are a lot of restuarnts where the locals hang ou,t which is fun to sit and watch in their enviroment next to the canals. We always felt safe throiughout the city and walked through the small narrow streets late at night with no problems.
Make sure you take some time to take a walk out in the gardens of the hotel, they are spectacular. You can actually walk all the way through the gardens to a patio that stops right on the sea, which also has a boat dock. It’s a very quiet serene place to have a seat and take in the beautiful surroundings.
Great hotel and highly recommended
