The porter told us we'd received the best room in the hotel (#106), and I believe it. Great views of the Grand Canal and a side canal as well (it is a corner room). Small balconies from the room and bathroom look off the side canal. Everything in the hotel was very nice, the electronic window shades that completely blocked the light, the wall shower massager, the firm beds. One thing that was interesting was that the front desk staff were all men - usually in Italy I've found they put overly make-up'ed women at the front desk who are somewhat pretty, but often not very nice. But at this hotel, ironically for a building that used to house female orphans (that the famous Vivaldi once tutored, hence the name of the hotel), all the desk staff were men. And they responded to our requests for help with water taxis, restaurant recommendations, etc. very well. My only complaint with this hotel was that breakfast doesn't begin until 7:30, very late. Most hotels begin at 6:00, maybe 6:30. We almost couldn't have breakfast on our last morning before catching our flight at the airport because breakfast was so late.
