Best breakfast in Italy!
Posted Oct 12, 2016
Lovely small hotel. Elegant and "Venetian" without being excessively formal or overdone. Very good location -- couple minutes walk to St Mark's, a couple of buildings removed from Grand Canal, but tucked away in a quiet nook -- no street noise or canal commotion. 5 minutes or less walk to vaporetto (water-bus) stop (and only one bridge!) so easy to drag your luggage to. Important to note that its vaporetto stop (San Giglio) is also used by the airport shuttle in addition to local transit so getting to/from airport is a snap (for Venice, anyway...). The very private garden courtyard is a nice extra bonus. The sumptuous free breakfast was simply outstanding -- all sorts of different food items including cold cuts, pastries, custards, plums, jams, pancakes, all sorts of wonderful fresh breads, cheeses, hot fresh eggs and sausage, individual coffee pots brought to your table, and available from 7AM to 11 -- awesome beginning to each day of sightseeing.
