Excellent Location with an Upgrade
Posted Oct 14, 2016
Hotel located less than 5 minute walk from San Marco so sightseeing and transportation was easy. Given an upgrade to a junior suite on arrival, so room was spacious, well appointed and maintained. Canal front view was beautiful with the Bridge of Sighs between the Doge's Palace and the prison easily seen just down the canal. Service was very good both at front desk and in room. It was a bit of a challenge trying to find access from the street at first (front door being on the canal), but that's true of Venice in general.
The only negative for our visit was the lack of air conditioning. Since daytime temperatures were in the low 60s (16-17C) and the large windows allowed full afternoon sun, the windows had to be open during the early evening hours to cool the room. Since Venice does have mosquitoes, that turned into an issue more annoying that any noise off the canal...but that was the only problem we had on an otherwise enjoyable visit.
