We have just checked out of the Hotel Savoia and Jolanda after spending 3 nights here. The hotel was recommended to us after some friends of ours stayed here in November last year. When I booked the hotel online I requested a lagoon view room however on arrival the room we were allocated (room 403) was situated on the side of the hotel with a partial lagoon view, shame as we had hoped to look onto the lagoon whenever we were in our room. Our room was lovely, spacious and clean, we had a circular bed which I have to say was not the comfiest bed and certainly not the easiest to get in and out of as it is placed under a low ceiling with beams, both me and my husband banged our heads on them a few times, made us chuckle anyway. The bathroom was spacious with a jacuzzi bath but not the cleanest around the water jets, it could have done with some new silicone around it to tidy it up a bit. The hotel provided a lovely breakfast, typical continental breakfast. The kitchen is currently being refurbished so you are located on the cobbles under a clear canopy which is kept warm heaters located above you, it didn't cause any problems and wasn't uncomfortable. There was a note in the room to let you know that the kitchen was being refurbished and you could experience some noise between 9am - 5pm, trust me they started well before 9am which at times was annoying for those who don't sleep well. The hotel is in a great central location, steps away from the Bridge of Sighs and close to many shops and restaurants. We booked in for afternoon tea at Hotel Danielli which was delicious (review to come), I would certainly recommend visiting the hotel, it's stunning inside. We thought the price of food and drink would be expensive in Venice but like anywhere in the world you visit, you can make it as cheap or expensive as you want, restaurants might differ between a couple of euros for the same dish. A trip in a gondola is €80 for 30 mins but you have to do it, you can't visit Venice and not go on one. Thoroughly enjoyed our trip and recommend the hotel regardless of a couple of little issues.
