Excellent hotel friendly staff, great location, we were in the back hotel (not sure which it is) lovely little breakfast room on the first floor which if full you can go to the main hotels breakfast area which has an outside area (it was March we were not brave enough), both have great selection. Room small but perfectly formed, clean bedding, towels, robes and slippers to use during your stay, we didnt have a view only onto another hotel or house. Situated close to San Zaccarria dock for access to taxi's to airport, 3 minutes walk to Bridge of Sighs and then onto St Marks Square. Took us about 20 minutes to walk to Rialto Bridge (I suffer bad arthritis so could be quicker). The little square the back hotel is on if you turn left and go round the back great selection of little restaurants all offering great food and drink options. Lovely romantic break for our 22nd wedding anniversary and our first time away without kids in 21 years! Venice is just beautiful and we loved every minute, loved wandering the little back streets stopping for coffee, shopping etc. Great Grand Canal Tour, operated by local company excellent Guide very knowledgeable, departs from St Marks Square docks, hour long motor boat tour.
