Good 4 star hotel with a GREAT location.

The hotel was a bit tricky to find at first but when you know where it is, it is so simple. It was a minute's walk from St Mark's Square.
Part of the confusion is that this hotel seems to be a group of hotels with similar names in the same area so in desperation, I asked for directions at the Royal San Marco and they told me it's the same hotel! That said, the service at Reception was efficient and I was taken to my suite which was in a separate block across a short alley...but conveniently was next to the Breakfast room.
My junior suite room was exactly as described. A huge sitting room, large bedroom and bathroom with bath and shower. I did get a balcony and a view of a canal rather than THE Grand Canal. And to be honest, I didn't spend that much time in the room to be disappointed by the view. There is a spacious mini bar fridge and room safe, which is easy to use. The heating wasn't adjustable but warm enough for me.
My rate included breakfast and it was a comprehensive self service buffet with every option you could want. The hotel had WiFi included...invaluable these days. I arrived before the 2pm check in time and the hotel held on to my cases in their comfortable waiting room and provided me with the WiFi code. If you are leaving your cases, make sure they are locked as there is no security on the room itself.
I thoroughly enjoyed my trip to Venice and the hotel, particularly the location, made it all the more enjoyable. Would recommend with directions.
