We stayed here during our honeymoon. The hotel is beautiful and our room was amazing with a view of the Grand Canal. The hotel staff was hit or miss with their hospitality. But as you'll find in Venice, the people aren't as nice as other...More
Hotel very well maintained and clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. I'd stay there again.

Our Oct trip was both business and pleasure. The location on the Grand Canal was just right. Away from the congested areas, but a short walk to everything. Staff was attentive and concerned about the quality of our 3 day experience. A good value.

The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San
Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
