We arrived by water taxi from the airport in pouring rain and the taxi 'driver' let us off at the first set of steps along the side canal to the hotel. In fact, we found out from Walter at the hotel that the taxi could have got right next to the hotel and saved us a 100 metres walk in the rain! The 'driver' was in a great hurry, and we knew no better. Let others be warned !
The hotel is in a very quiet area of the city - many people still live there, and the shops and restaurants reflected this (our best meal was in the Osteria Mocenigo restaurant which was 1 minute from the hotel). Yet the hotel is only 2 minutes from S Stae water bus stop on the Grand Canal, where the Number 1 service stops, and also the orange Allilaguna service to/from the airport.
Our room (33) was in the annexe, and was spacious and comfortably furnished in traditional Venetian style. We got a good nights sleep in the comfortable bed. The room was up 4 flights of stairs (no lift), and was at the rear of the building overlooking a small courtyard. It got the morning sun and was very quiet.
Sandro and Walter were charming hosts, and full of useful information about the city. All the staff were likewise very friendly and helpful.
All in all, an outstanding hotel for a reasonable price in a city where there are lots of average, expensive hotels! Highly recommended.
