My friend and I arrived at the Hotel around midday after a nightmarish journey on the Alilaguna boat to San Stae and were made most welcome, although we could not access our room until 2pm of which we were aware. We returned around 2pm and were taken to our room right on the Grand Canal by the delightful general factotum. He seemed to do everything round the hotel and was always cheerful, most polite and helpful. One of his duties was as the barman.
Our room was typically Venetian in decor with very comfortable beds. The bathroom was a reasonable size, but lacked a shelf to place cosmetics and toiletries. Please remember to take tissues! Only 2 tiny packs were provided. The hotel was very clean and well maintained. The
breakfast room is not large and can become very busy and congested and care is required in avoiding showering other seated guests with cornflakes! The coffee is good and the staff very pleasant and polite.
If one is fortunate, and an outside table is available, breakfast can be taken outside with a great view of the Grand Canal, but there are steps to negotiate while carrying breakfast outside. A very pleasant experience however.
We have stayed in a number of hotels in Venice over the years, but this was perhaps the most pleasant and friendliest.
I would suggest that if you are not willing to fork out the money for a private hire from Marco Polo Airport, you take a bus/vaporetto ticket which costs 12 euros. The bus leaves from just outside the entrance to the arrival hall. It will take you to the terminal at the end of the Grand Canal. From there, take a No.1 vaporetto to San Stae. A much more pleasant way of arriving!
