We chose this hotel based on the many positive reviews on the internet, & have to say it was an excellent choice.
We were looking for a small ( only 13 rooms), friendly boutique hotel in a central location , & the hotel Le Isole ticked all the boxes.
Firstly it's located in a small quiet street bordered by a little canal only two minutes level walking distance from the San Zaccaria Vaporetto stop, & less than five minutes walk from San Marco square. Making it ideal for visiting all the tourist hot spots, but far enough away to escape the crowds.
Before we arrived I contacted the hotel to advise we would be quite late getting to them & got an immediate reply thanking us for letting them know & confirming that reception would expect us at the later check in time.
On arrival we were met by a charming lady on reception who welcomed us & advised that we had been given a room up grade & a bottle of sparkling wine in our room, as it was our wedding Anniversary.
The room was perfect , spotlessly clean, comfortable & well appointed with balconies on opposite sides giving views over the canal in both directions.
In addition to the usual satellite t.v , en-suite bathroom with toiletries & tea/coffee, the room also had a Laptop size safe & a mini bar with soft drinks, water & beer. Both again included in the price.
There is a small breakfast room/bar next to reception that serves help yourself continental fare , as well as bacon & eggs cooked fresh to order. & free afternoon tea.
