Luxuriously large, with a great view of the square. Walking distance to everything, but felt more like a home than a tourist hotel.
Beautiful room 161 but watch out ...the hotel is not close to the boats and your only transportation is boat,and you have to carry your suitcases all by yourself at least throught 2 bridges with 20 steps each.
The hotel was in a great location off a plaza and close walk to everything in all directions. Breakfast was fabulous with many selections and the dining room was like a palace. The hotel was very clean and the staff was wonderful. Beautiful hotel with outdoor patio. It was just what you would dream about staying in Venice. We would definitely return.
This hotel is a completely Venetian experience. It exudes the same charm you feel in the city as a whole. The property was formerly the residence of the Austrian ambassador. It retains its Old World charm with all the modern amenities. The breakfast buffet is plentiful and delicious. Both the breakfast room and the tea salon (for the complimentary afternoon tea) are beautifully appointed and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful, even arranging very last minute tickets to a nearby Vivaldi concert for us. The superior room was beautiful, and fairly spacious (by European standards); very clean and well maintained. Take the free WiFi for keeping in touch back home into account, and you have a phenomenal value.
Our room was on the ground floor and was VERY moldy. Being that close to the small canal outside must have been a contributing factor. Plaster falling from ceiling in bathroom due to dampness and lack of air circulation I am guessing.... That being said...the hotel itself is very nice. The breakfast room was beautiful and the breakfast BEAUTIFULLY laid out. Relatively convenient to both San Marco and the Rialto/Accademia areas so that is a perk if you are walking around. I would recommend the hotel but not the room we were in...
