We caught a water taxi from the airport, fabulous, it dropped us off a stones throw from the front door of the hotel, taxi driver very helpful and spoke perfect English. The hotel is about 5 bridges from St Marks Sq, not far, but out of the hub bub.
We were greeted by a friendly receptionist, again in English, quick easy check-in, with a lift and cases brought up after bell boy showed us around our suite.
WOW! What a suite, our room 501, top floor, (some stairs) bedroom, shower room, separate small bathroom too! Also an extra room with single sofa/bed, TV, tea/coffee. Then we went out of the double doors to a private terrace, 2 chairs, a table and a couple of plants, with the most gorgeous panoramic view, just for you, it felt as though no one could see you, the photos we have are superb, fantastic sunsets, we were mesmerised with the traffic on the water, so relaxing, so different, the view from east to west was beautiful. The hotel was clean, very comfy bed. All of the staff were so helpful and friendly, we will be returning.
Oh! Venice was great too, I felt very safe walking around day or night, no street sellers bothering you, no beggars, most people looked European and Japanese. One more thing, the bridges have slopes, so accessible for pushchairs and wheelchairs, water taxis are a bit risky getting on and off if not sure footed. Free Wi Fi.
