This hotel absolutely lived up to all our expectations. We arrived by a private taxi transfer organised by the hotel and there surely can not be a better way to arrive at any hotel than this. Travelling alomg the Grand Canal to the hotel doors was magical. Although we arrived at around 11.30am our room was ready and this had a fantastic view over the Grand Canal (room 9). The room itself was very comfortable and spacious. I can see why some guests found the room quite dark but this was not a problem. Bathroom is not that big with shower only but still very good. Excellent breakfast and very helpful staff. They provided us with a list of recommended restaurants prior to our arrival and booked a couple at our request - both very good and will be subject of seperate reviews.
The hotel has a beautiful bar for residents only and therefore is very quiet. We enjoyed Bellinis one night but at 28 Euros it was in our view a bit too expensive. The location of the hotel is very good and whilst tucked away down an allay it is easy to find once you have left the hotel once. Only 10 minutes walk to Rialto.
All in all a great hotel, highly recommended in a magical city.
