The hotel room was exactly as described on its website and just as we hoped it would be, there were no misleading descriptions or hidden problems or charges often found on some sites. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially when we needed emergency...More
The hotel occupies two buildings connected by a walkway. The room we had overlooked a canal that connected the Grand Canal with the waterway that serviced the cruise ships. Only problem we had was getting the included TV stations but we spent so little time...More
The Hotel is located in a quiet area of the Dorsoduro District. The vaporetto stop is convenently located nearby. Also, it is within walking distance to St. Mark's Square and the Musica a Palazzo. The Rialto Bridge and Fish Market are a little further away,...More
For a very special trip to celebrate a major birthday, this was a perfect hotel.
Good location without the noise of tourists and outdoor restaurants
Excellent advice from the front dest, very comfortable rooms and rooms with a canal view were extra special.
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob
in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.

As others before me have stated there are no cars in Venice. See Tricia H's response for excellent car parking arrangements. The hotel does have a private water taxi dock. The nearest Vaperetto (Venice's version of a public bus) is at the Academia Bridge. Then you will have to walk past the Academia turn left for about a block, cross over a foot bridge, turn right and the hotel is just beyond a cafe. Ciao!
